Importing and Exporting Coordinate Values

Is it possible to import/export coordinate values from the missions? We would like to create displays in cadd showing our progress.

The coordinates are saved in the flights.plist file that is available by connecting your device to iTunes. From this file you can see the coordinates of the boundary markers, the estimated home point, overlap settings, date, name, flight waypoints, speed and battery settings.

This is no longer possible with the latest iTunes.  Download and install iTunes 12.5.4.42 to regain access to app files.

Also worth noting, copying the Flights file doesn't copy just one mission.  It copies all the missions on the given iPad. 

Also, copying the flights files over to a second iPad over-writes its existing missions.  So while you can save missions from iPad 1 to a file, and save missions from iPad to a file, there's no way to combine the two.

I save the "Flights.plist" file to my PC and then change the file name like this (see attached photo).
And then rename them back to "flights.plist" in iTunes.
