This release doesn’t have too many exciting new features, but a lot of small improvements all over the place.
Reworked GPS Handling code
- Removed parsing of proprietary PUBX messages, using standard NMEA now
- Lots of improvements to standard NMEA parsing
- Fixed issue that number of satellites in view on the Status and GPS page could jump around a lot
- Improved chip configuration (SBAS, Galileo) for Ublox
- Improved computation of GPS Accuracy. Note that Accuracy might show a bit worse on the web interface now. This is only due to rework of the precision estimation – it is not worse in reality.
Improvements to OGN Tracker firmware and interface
- Firmware is now compiled with WITH_LORAWAN for Lora support
- Improvements to PilotAware and OGNTP transmission timing. Transmission is now more regular to make it more reliable
- A few other small improvements, see here: https://github.com/pjalocha/esp32-ogn-tracker/commits/master
- When using OGN Tracker, you can now configure your aircraft registration, so it will be displayed to other Stratux users even if it is not registered in OGN DDB.
- New setting to configure a pressure altitude offset, can be used to work around an imprecise BMP280 sensor (#83)
- Improved barometric altitude estimation from ADS-B if no baro sensor is connected
- Added option for the Stratux EU case to include a lead-through for a velcro-strap to secure a battery pack (#89)
- OGN Receiver module now also receives pressure information for a future OGN transmission PI HAT module
- Fixed issue that Mode-S distance estimation was not done for some targets
PLEASE CLEAR YOUR BROWSER CACHE AFTER INSTALLING THE UPDATE, OR SOME OPTIONS WILL NOT WORK FOR YOU!
