I am running ForeFlight and the IFD-100 app on the same iPad, hooked to a IFD-440 in remote wireless mode with a Stratux.  If I switch from ForeFlight to IFD-100 everything works fine, but from the IFD to ForeFlight causes the ADSB data to not show up in ForeFlight.  A force close of the IFD app fixes the issue in ForeFlight.  Anyone else seen this?

+1.  I typically only run one of those apps at any given time. I do suspect though that the issue is with Foreflight... I'm not sure Foreflight is going to sleep when its placed into the background. 

That said, I have noticed that the IFD100 app will outright not sync/connect to my IFD if I happen to update the GPS database (nav + obst) earlier than the expiration date... once the date passes, the IFD100 will connect and sync with my IFD.

interesting. I’ve found the IFD 100 will connect and sync with the panel mount as long as they both have the same database release-even if it is not effective yet.  I use the IFD 540 as the source and have found that FF will NOT show traffic or NexRad if the IFD 100 is running in the background. When I quit the IFD 100, traffic and NEXRAD appear on FF again.
