When I used to run the GDL 39 3d just with iPad I had dropouts occasionally...I really thought it was my iPad. Iíll have to bring it home from the hangar and update it, itís likely several year old firmware. Oops.
The traffic thing is really odd though. Never had that issue with the pilot app, just started when I connected the 39 to the 660.
I also canít find where in the 660 software I reset the AHRS like I used to do with the iPad. I would have assumed that would be really obvious too.
Sometimes some things get so MUCH functionality, the obvious is right in front of my face and I miss it.

My 796 does not show my plane as traffic so not sure why your 660 does.
The GDL 39 3D has an AHARS built in but it requires initializing in level flight once in a while as it has a tendency to drift.
