ForeFlight traffic altitude displays in error

where they use pressure altitude information from the Stratux instead of GPS altitude causing reported altitudes of traffic to be off by thousands of feet.
You can force ForeFlight to use GPS altitude by disabled the PA sensor in the Startux. Go to the 192.168.10.1 status page and tap the version number 7 times quickly to enable developer mode. Then go to settings tab and disable the PA sensor.
If you're a ForeFlight user, it's highly recommended you submit a bug report
so it gets fixed.
