There is no problem at all making changes and there are several ways to accomplish this.
There is a file on the SD card which will be edited using a PC or MAC to add or change your network’s 2.4 GHz network name and password which is then copied (or duplicated) with a different file extension in the same folder.
If the map is already on the network and a planned (or scheduled) change is imminent, the easiest way is to remote into the map (SSH) while it is still active on the network and make changes before the credentials change.
There is also the CALL Customer Service method where we guide you through the process. This usually takes about 5 minutes,
These methods are fully detailed in the METARmaps Owner’s Manual in Changing METARmap Wi-Fi Settings/Initial Setup section beginning on page 9.I am uncomfortable with giving anyone I don't know well my password. I suspect you are the same.
I do know the RPi and Python quite well. Is it possible for me to order this without providing you with my password?BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can order it and not provide your information. We would not be responsible for the return shipping if you are unable to program the device.
Here is why we request the information.
Your METAR Map comes ready to use—there’s no setup and no need for a computer. Just take it out of the box and hang it on the wall. When you provide your WiFi network information (for your home, office, or hangar) on your order, we’ll program the built-in METAR Map computer to connect automatically.If I provide wifi info and it gets programmed, what happens if we change our wifi for move to a different wifi service ? How is it programmed for the new wifi ? I see it can be changed but HOW? does it need a computer with a usb cable can you do it with an APP ? how ? also it is very scary to share wifi info .......BEST ANSWER: If you change your WiFi, there are instructions for how to reprogram the unit. It's a little complicated but the instructions are very detailed.
