Can I use ProStick on a Raspberry Pi without PiAware? I am using Pro Stick Plus. I do not want to send statistics to FlightAware. I am using this on a company project and will not be allowed to transmit data out of our network. In fact, the project will eventually be run on a system not connected to the internet.
In reading Pro Stick Plus instruction for using it with a Pi, they all refer to installing PiAware, which I do not want to do.
Also, as I understand it, PiAware always want to transmit data to FlightAware. Is that correct?
Are there instructions for using ProStickPlus without sending data back to FlightAware?
Dump1090 is the decoder. This software will connect to the prostick or prostick plus and the decode the data stream. It doesn’t upload the decoded data anywhere.
The dump1090 is open source software.
Here are the repo links:
The PiAware software is the support hardware that handles setup, automatic restarts and updates, connecting to FlightAware and feedback data. It doesn’t need to be installed or you can just remove the piaware software.
