    I would appreciate a button that hides all aircraft except the one I have selected.

    Sometimes, particulary over North America, there is too much traffic even with filters applied and my laptop can't cope. It's most noticable when trying to scroll to follow a flightpath back to a point of origin.

    I've been trying to do so for a GLF4 for 15 minutes so far and it's a slow crawl. And then I misclick and instead of zooming it clears the flightpath and I have to start again

    You have to click on the "Show Route" Button in lower left corner. Then all other traffic disappear.

    I'd very much like a map overlay of the distances my reciever is reaching, because curiosity!

    ACARS intergration?

    Hi there,

    As a long time feeder (T-ESTA2) and user of FR24 i see room for development of the overall system and service!

    How about integrating ACARS messages as an additional feature? Yes, it would require an additional setup apart from the 1090Mhz system but for us who are into the technology the investment/setup is not much. A regular VHF antenna and another SDR/RPi would do it with a small piece of software to forward the data as we today have the fr24feeder. I ran it before with my SBS3 and it worked like a charm on Planeplotter. Just a few % of all feeders running the service would give very good coverage.

    I think this would be a good development as we today have more or less come to the end of the road of what the ADS-B and MLAT can give us. The data might not be of interest of the general public but, who knows..

    Input appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Fredrik

    Intercepting and broadcasting acars breaks a lot more laws in various countries as the are intended for single recipient/agencies. Unlike ADSB which is for broadcast-to-all collision avoidance and therefore different.

    Ok, got the point, seems logical even though it should have been encrypted if intended for peer to peer use only. The protocol now is pure text. Tried to google on the subject but can't find much info more than about UK legislation which actually prohibits. Well, no matter what it's a lot of interesting information flying around on the ACARS frequencies, encourage everyone to get a reciever system up and running for personal use!
