    Too bad this has not happened yet. MLAT would work much better if the user's feeder coordinates were from a GPS chip instead of user input, I know a lot of people's feeds have their exact coordinates wrong when I see planes zipping around erratically.

    Just turn off MLAT. For the ADS-B positions it doesn't really matter where the receiver is.

    Anybody knows if this configuration (a moving FR24 feeder) has been made possible without polluting FR24's database with inconsistent users' position data?

    It would be nice to link that to a gps receiver local to the feeder for more accurate feeder location for MLAT calcs too .

    eg: a moving receiver with dynamic coordinates as on a ship at sea.
    Yeah that's actually good idea to have dynamic coordinates for those who are always on the move.

    Thank you for your feedback. I think it's a good idea for future improvement.

    You can run the sign up process again and update the coordinates in that way.
    Or another option is to send your new coordinates to support@fr24.com and your coordinates will be updated.

    No, you can't do that by changing any config files on your pi. You can on the other hand re-register i.e. run the signup command again.

    @Adriaan25: Yes, just send your updated coordinates in decimal format to support@fr24.com and that's it.

    Glad to know that email method works too.

    But I have a similar question, how do you set coordinates manually with the actual pi settings?

    No, you don't need to do anything else.
