Please include a detailed description of your issue or question:

How do I change the altimeter (baro) setting on the PFD included with the FlightBox Utility app? It’s at standard pressure (29.92")

Bump! Please indicate how to change BARO. On boot up it defaults to 29.92. Is it automatic? I did noticed it changed at one point but I do not know how long it took to change.

If it is automatic, and it takes too long to update, is there a way to manually change it?

Baro setting is automatic, set by closest station received by 978, in the US only. When I fly in the US, baro setting updates during flight, but here at home in Canada, we don’t have 978 ground stations. I would like to see an update to set baro manually.
