Plate Solving - Need internet connection?

Post by jimme100 » Fri Sep 27, 2019 2:04 am

This may be a stupid question, but I dont want to find out the hard way when im out in the field.

I am connected to the ASIAIR from my tablet or phone using 5G wifi. Does the ASIAIR platesolve from a database within the app? I will obviously only have my tablet connected to the ASIAIR wifi in the field and don't have cellular on my tablet. does the ASIAIR or my tablet have to communicate via wifi to an online database somehow to platesolve, or is it just contained within the app itself without a need for access to the internet?

To be clear, since i wont have any access to the internet or cellular in the field, will i still be able to platesolve?

Is the "Tonights Best" target list also contained within the ASIAIR without the need for an internet connection? Do i need an internet connection to use any of the functions of the ASIAIR except syncing time and GPS info?

Regards,
