    I had the same problem. I used the script that wiedehopf posted and now it is working perfect. So it is an easy way to correct the "problem".

    The --lat 50.23 and --lon 10.12 need to go into the "Process arguments" field.


    If you can't get it running, this script gives you an easy option to configure the location:

    https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-wi...for-dump1090fa

    You'll need console access though, so either keyboard/monitor or better putty.
    This also should give you a proper map and updated dump1090.

    You both have dump1090-mutability ver 1.14 (Pi24 image / setting receiver = DVB-T)

    Go to this post:
    2019 - PI24 (Image) QuickStart Guide

    Scroll down, and see the screenshot under following Item:
    STEP-8: SETTINGS & CONFIGURATION
    (Latitude & Longitude to be entered in field "Process arguments")

    elljay:
    You have dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev. It requires latitude & longitude settings in file /usr/share/dump1090-mutability/html/config.js

    Altrernatively for ver 1.15~dev, you can give following command, and for Latitude and Longitude you can enter your actual values. For all other settings, accept default by pressing Enter key.

    NOTE: Do NOT use this for ver 1.14
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure dump1090-mutability

    Hi. I just joined and have been online with FR24 for 2 days now. Having the same issue: Distance from Site: n/a. Could you please explain the extact text I need to enter in the arguments on the settings page? Thank you.

    Glad you got it fixed. The :8754 pages are from fr24feed, so I guess that version of dump1090 is the bundled one.

    well - the answer was simple - i just added --lat and --lon as arguments on the settings page (my_ip:8754/settings.html)

    simples!

    I've edited the config.js file to contain:


    SiteShow = true; // true to show a center marker
    SiteLat = 53.5957;
    SiteLon = -2.6965;`
    //SiteLat = 45.0; // position of the marker
    //SiteLon = 9.0;
    SiteName = "Ian's Radar Site"; // tooltip of the marker


    and restarted the raspberry pi - no change, and the receiver.json file is the same as before:

    { "version" : "v1.14", "refresh" : 1000, "history" : 120 }


    confused - I'll do some more googling!
    thanks for you help so far,
    Ian

    Hi, notice you're using v1.14 which is different to the version I'm using (v1.15~dev). Google says /usr/share/dump1090-mutability/html/config.js is the file you need to edit for v1.14.

    Hi,
    thanks for the reply - my receiver.json file is rather sparse:

    { "version" : "v1.14", "refresh" : 1000, "history" : 120 }

    the lines in /etc/default/dump1090-mutability read:

    # If set, supplies a reference location for local position decoding.
    LAT="53.595700"
    LON="-2.696500"



    so it looks like this is not being used - have I specified the location correctly?

    Ian

    Hi, what format are the lines in the config file? If you surf to <IP>/dump1090/data/receiver.json it will show you what it thinks your position is.

    distance from site not available

    Hi,
    I've just started feeding data to Flightradar24 - my dump1090 local page is not reporting the distance from a tracked aircraft from my site - for example:


    Altitude: 32000 ft / 9748 m Squawk: 2140
    Speed: 389 kt / 720 km/h RSSI: -34.4 dBFS
    Track: 282 (West) Last seen: now
    Position: 53.649, -0.879 (1.2s)
    Distance from Site: n/a

    I have set my latitude and longitude in /etc/default/dump1090-mutability. My receiver seems to working ok:

    sudo fr24feed-status
    [ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
    [ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2018-09-24 12:04:29.
    [ ok ] FR24 Link: connected [UDP].
    [ ok ] FR24 Radar: T-EGNO51.
    [ ok ] FR24 Tracked AC: 125.
    [ ok ] Receiver: connected (88360032 MSGS/0 SYNC).
    [ ok ] FR24 MLAT: ok [UDP].
    [ ok ] FR24 MLAT AC seen: 120.

    and I can see data on my FR24 data sharing page.

    any ideas?
    thanks
    Ian
