Dual and Seattle Avionics worked together to rapidly resolve the issue. FlyQ EFB version 2.3.1, released just now by Apple, resolves the issue for FlyQ EFB users.
In addition, users can expect an update to the XGPS190 firmware release once Dual’s testing and validation is complete. This firmware release is not needed for FlyQ EFB but should resolve the issue for other apps that use the Dual XGPS 170 or 190.
FlyQ EFB version 2.3.1 also fixes a problem where the altitude display reads “Pressure Alt” when it should say “GPS Alt” in some specific cases and makes the display of a red “GPS” indicator (i.e. lost GPS) happen more quickly.
Upgrades to FlyQ EFB are free.
