    Angry Air Nav is a Big business !! the more I think !!

    Hi friends

    My conclusion and thinking is that Air Nav is a PIG business
    seen from user and feeders side.
    Thanks to PP and FR 24 we can still be free users belonging to free networks
    as AirNav is trying first sell to us ,telling free network service
    then let us provide them with data
    and then on the end let US pay for real-time , not once , all the time 6 month
    SHAME ON YOU AirNav
    Go hide your selv

    I don't understand this post?

    PP is NOT a free network.

    Hi
    PP you pay once , thats it ,
    And if you provide data you are even upgraded as user,

    AirNav , on the package telling us about its network, and real time
    suddenly you find that network data is 5 min delay, and asking about it
    you find that you are provided with network data (5min) only first year (delayed)
    and if you want real time, pay every 6 month, all the time you are surpose to provide them with your data
    for selling it back to the users, thats what I am angry about.

    As I said in another post Ulf............

    Here is the way I see it

    You buy the radarbox and accessories, you need a computer to run it, you need power to run the computer, you need internet access for the network, your bandwidth usage increases dramatically if you upload to Airnav's servers, Airnav then sells your uploaded data on, by now you have paid a small fortune for the privilege of giving your data away to Airnav and you are then expected, if you want it, to pay to use the network.......

    Sharing data with flightradar24 is far better, they don't make you pay to use their network.

    I have to say that I use Airnav's Radarbox and it's not too bad but the the database is next to useless if you are a serious dotspotter and wish to keep an accurate record of flights......

    Also, beware of their free trials, you have to give the details of your credit card before you can download them.
    There have been instances of the credit card being debited before the trial was over.

    Anyway, I want nothing more to do with them, that is why I am selling my radarbox over on Radarspotters.

    I agree with Hamish about ANRB and your comments about AirNav charging for data. But to be clear:

    To share PP data everyone has to pay once €25.

    Then additionally to use Mlat PP charges €12 each year. If you have an SBS-1 and can provide quality data and be approved as a Mlat Ground Station you do not pay the €12 a year.

    But what "war"?

    I think Ulf means the ongoing strife with Airnav............

    Anyway, Radarspotters is almost fully restored to it's former glory.

    Don't forget anyone with a AirNav RadarBox Pro/3D software can block the data.

    1.) You can block the outgoing data on port(7878) on your router firewall settings. Then you don't have to worry about it anymore.
    Then you can check on the AirNav RadarBox Network map. To make sure it's blocked.
    http://www.airnavsystems.com/RadarBox/network.php

    2.) Each time the software is run. You can unclick it.
    File>Preferences> Click on 'RadarBox' tab> Unclick the 'Share Flight Data' box.

    No, we are not doing as you suggest, if fact, Airnav has been trying very hard since the day Radarspotters opened in March 2009 to take us down, as well you know, how is the weather in Portmahomack these days ??
