FlightAware Discussions

FA Blue dongle stopped working

Hi. So after 1,247 days, my FlightAware blue stick gave up yesterday I have taken it apart today whilst awaiting a replacement and noticed a bit which doesn’t look right to me.

Can anyone confirm if the area marked has blown or maybe overheated in the end?

Here’s an example how it should look, seems yours is toast indeed.
The markings on the chip are not readable at all.


Thanks. That was my suspicion.
