Note this is for advanced users. The simplest way to install/setup PiAware is by using the image-based SD card install. See the PiAware 3 announcement thread.
Today I’m excited to announce the availability of the upgrade option from PiAware 2 to PiAware 3!
You can initiate the upgrade from your “My ADS-B” Stats page (click the link at the top of any page on flightaware.com) by using the “Send command to device” feature.
- You must upgrade PiAware using the “Upgrade and restart PiAware” option FIRST. (The other options will not upgrade PiAware 2.)
- Once you have upgraded PiAware you may upgrade dump1090. On wheezy-based installs, you may need to reboot the system to get the dump1090 map working after doing the upgrade.
- Upgrading a PiAaware 2 install will upgrade PiAware and optionally dump1090, but it will not give you all of the PiAware configuration capabilities. You will need a SD card install to take advantage of PiAware 3’s new configuration features.
Thank you for your interest in PiAware!
