Trying to update to PiAware 3.7.1 but "Device Commands" unavailable

I received the ADS-B Network News email yesterday, and it advised to update our software 3.7.1, and it includes instructions on how to install this update.

When I try to find the drop down menu to the right of Device Commands, to select ‘Upgrade and Restart PiAware’, in place of this I am seeing Sending commands to your device is not available because the feature is disabled locally on your device.

I have a Flight Feeder supplied by FlightAware, does this mean I do not have to worry about organizing updates etc? Has this been taken care for me? Or do I need to carry out this update some other way?

Thanks for your time.

That’s all good for people who are running PiAware, but I am running a Flight Feeder device supplied by FlightAware, so I dont believe I am able to login to the Pi device… Or if I can, I have never seen any instructions to do so in the supplied information.

FlightFeeders are remotely managed by FlightAware. The FlightFeeder release that includes PiAware 3.7.1 is still in testing; once it’s complete we’ll automatically push out an update, you don’t need to do anything.


Fantastic, that’s what I was hoping to confirm. I did not see that mentioned in the most recent email newsletter so just wanted to check.

Thanks for the question and answer guys. I was looking for the same myself, and we are probably not the only ones…

I have upgraded both, dump1090 and piaware to 3.7.1, last week and it seems to be working properly.

Hi all! The same here. Confused with the email. Thank for the answer, obj.
