I've decided to use a cowling blanket and leave the Tanis on. With the blanket and our extremely low dew points in the Eastern Sierra my Rotax should never have any condensation potential.

Roger, I was just repasting what Phil from Switchbox put in his Oct 16 post to start this thread.

I believe I called TMobile in August to add $10 to keep it active for 3 more months. Will double check.

And I believe Phil can use a SIM card from any carrier, T-Mobile just happens to be cheapest. At this point I'll just let Phil speak for himself.

We're getting a lot of orders from the Midwest now, and all are shipped out if you've ordered this week

----

Any GSM sim card will work from any provider, but T-Mobile is still the cheapest and great option. We supply those with each unit.

A lot of pilots in Europe, Canada and Africa are all using the SwitchBox and TMobile still. It works out to still be the cheapest even internationally because it uses $0 credit for phone calls.

 

The cost for the whole year is about $20-$30 if you pay on time.

Check the manual on our website for the skinny

Hey roger,

 

The box comes plug and play out of the package with 3x months free service (included with purchase).

 

Then it's $10 for 3x months more service when you need it.

 

About $3 per month when you refill

 

Happy to help

Phillip

Adam Smith (Senior VP) gave a great presentation at AOPA's summit last week in Fort Worth, TX.

 

He mentioned SwitchBox in his speech about advancing the aviation industry through new technology. Great to be included here amongst the innovative companies mentioned.

We do have a wifi version but its not high amperage like the cellular model. It's more for 'home' use instead of hangar use, since most hangars are without internet connection

Thats true, I use my SwitchBox in a second home for Air Conditioning in the summer and Heating in winter. Like a remote thermostat.

Also lighting and opening garage door, etc

switchbox, is there any way to control your switchbox aside from cellular? Some hangars don't receive cell signal either because of their heavy metallic construction (ohio state university airport), and a remote cell antenna (or a wifi/wired module!) could instead be used.

We sold almost 20x today and Its getting really busy, but its not full pre-heat season yet. Im hoping we wont have a volume issue with the Aircraft Spruce catalog and AOPA supporting us too.

 

If you are on the fence or watching this thread, contact me so we can put you in before the rush happens next month.

 

If interested, Send a PM or email to:

I have an Ethernet one available for sale

, wifi is now being tested and a gsm/CDMA almost identical to the switch box will be available at around 100.00 less.

 

Going to be looking for beta testers in the next few weeks

One of the switchbox pilots bought 2x and is using for his plane and in his manufacturing plant!

This is definitely one of the most creative uses for the SwitchBox yet.

 

Check below for pictures. He is remote starting a large 220V extrusion machine in his warehouse, saving a lot of time/labor. Really cool use of the SwitchBox product.
