all databases were updated to be the same and current. The IFD100 app was receiving the flight plan info and frequencies of the IFD540 but showed the following errors pictured. Can anyone help please?

Have you tried completely closing the IFD100 and restarting it?  By "completely closing", I mean double pushing the button and then swiping up on the IFD100 app.

Yes I did that on the flight and this picture was taken after I force quit the app and relaunched it.

From what I understand on the ithingies, swiping the app away doesn't really close it out fully.

There is a method to force all apps to close and do a clean reboot, and should be tried. Method varies, but you usually soft reboot by holding the home button and power button together until it reboots, just google it for your device. (not a hard reset, which will factory reset it).

* Orest

Went up again today. Before I flew I gave the iPad a full restart by holding home and power.  Same errors....and I noticed while I was in OBS mode on the IFD540 the course line was drawn properly on the IFD but drawn differently on the IFD100 app...

The "configuration error" is the key.  When the IFD100 first starts up, it gets the configuration from the IFD540.  The IFD100 then has to be restarted in order to use that configuration.  In the off chance that the IFD100 got it on that last restart, try restarting one more time.

If that doesn't work, my only other idea is to uninstall the IFD100 and the trainer, then reinstall them both.  Then go through that whole process of letting the IFD100 talk to the panel, restart, etc.

Was this all working at one point and then just quit?  Were there any changes that could have induced it?
