UPDATE 2:30 PM, Pacific: All back to normal. Nothing to see here. Move along ….
Apparently FlyQ EFB 3.0 is being downloaded and used at record levels .. I say this because the folks who provide the radar and satellite weather maps tiles to us, saw a massive spike in usage and decided to stop providing the tiles without warning (we apparently exceeded our usage allowance — by a lot). We’re on the phone with them now and hope to have this resolved very soon.
This applies to radar and satellite weather weather downloaded from the Internet only for use in FlyQ EFB and FlyQ Online; ADS-B radar is not affected (and there is no ADS-B satellite). METARs, TAFs, Winds Aloft, etc. are also unaffected as we process that data ourselves.
Sorry for the problem.
