Apparently the WiFi detecting logic occures in the 720 initial start up sequence. Walter, I changed the start up menu to allow manual start of the Nav screen as you suggested and still got the "device not connected ". I also had removed any "PRE" devices that were remaining in the WIFI list. I tried the STATUS button which brings up an option screen allowing "Reset and Reconnect" again no joy with that on reconnecting. About the only actiion that i fiind that works is unplug 12 vdc and repower. Then will always reconnect fine. I would be satisfied if I could get the reset and reconnect button to work . Realizing this is still probably a warm up and time race for the iFly and NAvworx on start up. My next step is to get the latest in software, I may be one rev behind but fairly up to date. Aside from that, any other recommendations? I like the iFly tied to the master switch , Its a "excellent" alarm for not leaving the master on at shutdown. It's save my battery many times!! Thanks for the excellent customer service on a great product.

This says to me you should do what I suggested. Put a switch between the iFly device and the master switch. Don't turn on the iFly until the ADS-B device has had time to start up and establish the WIFI network. The solution seems obvious.
Tim I do agree that may be the obvious solution and possibly the one I finally zero in on. However, I still would like to determine if the reset/ reconnect feature in my 720 has some issues or maybe its purpose is just not what I think it was designed to do. Haven't really heard anyone that said "Yes my reset / reconnect button for WiFi works great". I do agree the hard wire switch would resolve the apparent issue but not ready to go there yet in this digital world.
Anyone out there wanting to give it a try, I would be interested in hearing from you . ie can you disconnect from wifi and reconnect while remaining in the NAv app. ?
Dennis, sorry for the overdue response. One more thing you can try: Updating the OS on your 720. This will reset your wifi settings as well, which sometimes clears up this issue. Here is a link to the OS Update procedure: http://www.iflygps.com/OSUpdate
Walter , I did as you said and removed the NAV app from the start up menu. Have been initating the NAV manually as requested and have noticed that the wifi connect is batting about 1000 now. Believe thats been at least a month or more with at least 10 to 12 starts. Seems to work fine now . I also removed some of the "PRE" wifi connections and believe that will also help. Thanks/ DRR
