An external GPS name not displayed in iOS 10

If you already upgraded to iOS 10, and you are using an external bluetooth GPS with the CloudAhoy App to recored your flight, please be aware of —

Issue: The name of the external GPS name is not identified. Instead, the app erroneously displays “External: none” in the GPS field.

Workaround: ignore the misleading display!

If the external bluetooth GPS is paired with your iOS device, CloudAhoy will use the external GPS’s data and not the internal GPS’s, regardless of the GPS name displayed.


___Display under iOS 10:      noExternalGPS

___Display under iOS 9:        external GPS


We are communicating with Apple to resolve this problem.

We recommend holding off before upgrading to iOS 10 until this issue is resolved.
