I've tried on various size aeroplanes and from whatever seat I've had.
Sometimes there is GPS reception and sometimes not. Working out where
the GPS antenna is within the device helps to place the antenna close
to a window.
I had not considered using APRSdroid, I just use the GPS to keep a
watch on progress using SatStat.
I don't get to travel on the Darwin route often which is the only route
I've used with onboard internet.
