This is a pre-release that added new features with some improvements:
- Added simple web interface that will display basic Ownship and GNSS constellation status.
- Tweaked Ublox GNSS configuration parameters to give Galileo and GPS more tracking channels.
- Added more GPS information display on startup.
The web interface can be accessed at
http://192.168.0.1. It is fairly basic as of now, but more feature will be added in the future.
Since Galileo has a much more modern signal and there are fair amount of satellites visible in the North America as of now, we have increased the maximum tracking channel for Galileo from
14 which is the same as GLONASS. We have also increased the maximum tracking channel for GPS from
32 (the hardware tracking channel available) so that if WAAS or EGNOS is available, we can still take full advantage of all available hardware tracking channels in the receiver (Ublox can only track GPS satellites if SBAS is active).
Now when Pitot starts up, it will print out the firmware version and hardware tracking channels available in the compatible Ublox receiver. This can be viewed by SSHing into Pitot and run
sudo journalctl -u pitot.
This is a pre-release that added a new feature and updated various dependencies:
- ForeFlight ID GDL90 message support.
We now send out ForeFlight ID GDL90 message alongside GDL90 heartbeats for better support of ForeFlight 10.
Also, this release updated the Raspbian version to
Stretch with Kernel 4.14. The build toolchain has been updated to Rust 1.25.0 and Cargo dependencies has been updated as well.
This is a pre-release that added a new feature:
- FIS-B uplink buffering when device is sleeping (#8)
Pitot will now buffer the last
8192 FIS-B uplink messages for new clients and clients that has been sleeping or switched out of the EFB app. This helps user to conserve battery by not having to keep their iPad running at all the time.

This is a minor pre-release that fixed a few small issues.
- Fixed panicking when no GNSS module is attached to the GPIO ports (#1)
- Fixed incorrect unit conversion of ground speed in
This is the initial release of Pitot. See
