    No posts from Andre Brandao (AirNav Development) or Akbar Sherwani(AirNav Support) yet today on first day of December!


    01 Dec, 2011 - Surely its time for the latest news regarding development timescales for ANRB. Come on Air Nav please tell us the latest information and how much further AirNav Shiptrax has slipped again just when we all thought it was so close........ I wasn't taken in over a month ago either BTW.....

    [From AirNav Support]
    A. "Work is progressing for ANRB as well at the moment, AirNav Dev will provide details on ShipTrax soon.
    We won't give any timescales for ANRB yet as we do not want to work to pressure from deadlines rather work to a product which we think matches our customers needs and demands. "

    Translation: Go away. We can't even be bothered to think of original excuses any more.

    cholo translation: Forget it guys. No more money is going on RadarBox Mk.1 because we're going Mlat and that means developing a new box. Radarbox Mk1 is defunct.

    From another post on AirNav Radarbox forum...


    The sad thing is...

    By the time they get around to doing the "bug" fixes, the hardware is now well dated and all other virtual boxes are providing more (and mostly for less £). So even with fixes done, possibly still be lacking.

    As for Mlat, think it was said sometime back, the current hardware will not support mlat and that would be a new feature not a bug fix.

    The software is finished and will be approved by the beta testers today. After that, production.
    The hardware has been approved and the first 300 units are in production now: should be ready in 3 weeks.
    So release in mid January.

    Angry

    Some great reading about the progress on RadarBox software bugs...

    From Tarbat the Beta Tester for AirNav Systems software:

    That means that those long-established software bugs should have been be corrected by now.
    Agreed. Airnav really owe us an explanation. I went to a lot of time and effort last year to compile a list of bugs, prioritise them, take feedback, etc. as requested by Airnav. See http://www.airnavsystems.com/forum/i...73955#msg73955

    I do think they now owe us an explanation as to:
    1. Which of the bugs will be fixed in v4.04, and when can we expect delivery of v4.04 into beta-testing.
    2. Which bugs will have to wait until Radarbox 5 to be fixed.

    At the moment it seems like I wasted all my time and effort compiling the list of bugs for Airnav.

    The question is would I spend £400 again on a system that is not being updated regularly when I can spend a lot less on telephone/tablet Apps that do the same as RB and are updated. The answer is NO. Although I love my RB having had one since V2.0 and having many updates, the last two years have been very disappointing in relation to getting any bugs fixed and lack of customer service.

    Anmer said it very well today. From the post AirNav Development made today on the AirNav Forum.

    Today's version. Roughly translated:

    Well at least a bit of honesty from AN.
    It shows what i thought and that is that the bugs issues is and has always been way down on its list of priorities.
    The most annoying thing is that we apparently have been asking for two years for online tracking solutions. Well no i have been waiting two years for bugs to be fixed.
    Sorry AN i know you are trying to be a bit more open and honest and your new products may be wonderful and ground breaking but it don't help me ......

    Some more comments from Anmer about the bug fixes AirNav Systems talking about for this week...

    AirNav Bug Fixing Started? - October 25, 2012
    Looks like AirNav is starting work on fixing some bugs. Or is just asking questions as this takes little effort and gives the impression work has started?
    http://radarspotting.com/forum/index...ic,1699.0.html


    Maybe the AirNav ShipTrax software/hardware bugs will also be fixed next year!

    As reported by Anmer today. We won't be seeing any AirNav RadarBox Pro/3D software updates in 2012 year from AirNav Systems LLC company.


    Very SAD day for RadarBox users!

    -------------------------------------

    Ah well, good while it lasted. As Many of us predicted, we won't see RadarBox V4.04 this side of 2013.

    Anmer came out with the new "Top 8" list reasons.

    ************************************************** ********
    See thread for more comments:
    http://radarspotting.com/forum/index...7.html#msg8967

    As a RadarBox "owner" who has been banned from posting on the AirNav forum for no other reason that being a member of another forum, I'd like to respond to Runway 31's post below:

    -------------------------------------
    Post by Runway 31,
    "Unfortunately there are some people on here for whatever reason who only want to moan, bitch and complain and dont contribute to the forum in any other way. Its the one thing you can count on that out of the thousands of forum member the same four or five stick out like a sore thumb bitching and taking words out of context as in this thread, seemingly having to seek arguments and sow discontent for their own enjoyment."
    http://www.airnavsystems.com/forum/i...87159#msg87159
    --------------------------------------

    Let's put things in a proper context.

    Since I joined the AirNav forum I and many others have had posts deleted and been banned simply because we criticised AirNav or mentioned a competitor product. And I've received abusive and threatening emails from Andre Brandao, AirNav's part-time CEO and chief programmer and Mark Francis of Waters & Stanton, AirNav's distributor.

    And in that time I've seen a dramatic decline in members posting on the AirNav forum. I can count on two hands those who post regularly. If we ignore the "Database updates", the place is a ghost town.

    From where I sit, I see the same handful of sycophants defending the indefensible. I can only assume they get free RadarBox, ShipTrax receivers and network sharing for their pains.

    But let's focus on the bottom line and reiterate the basic issues that RadarBox owners "moan, bitch and complain" about:

    1. There's not been an update of the RadarBox software for over three years.

    2. AirNav keeps telling us "it won't be long" and "we'll be amazed", yet nothing appears.

    3. AirNav post reassuring statements that it contradicts a few days later. I don't trust AirNav with ample justification.

    4. The RadarBox has some good features but it also has outstanding bugs that should have been fixed years ago.

    5. AirNav steals our data without our express permission. It's theft pure and simple and has ignored requests to change the data sharing default from "On" to "Off". Just so it can sell our data.

    6. AirNav is only interested in new revenue and not existing customers. For the past 3 years it blamed ShipTrax and now it's RadarBox24.com. ShipTrax was a total failure funded by RadarBox owners. I suspect RadarBox24 will go the same way.

    7. The RadarBox receiver is prone to component failure, even after it's been repaired.

    8. We were promised Mlat years ago. Has anyone seen it?

    It's quite simple Runway 31. We have every reason to "moan, bitch and complain".

    Perhaps you should stand back and look around. Or maybe my "barrell of pig muck" analogy applies?
