    By ignoring your selection when you next launch the RadarBox software and resetting the share to "On".

    It's like cancelling a regular payment from your bank only to find it's been reinstated the following week.

    I realised that could be the reason but I don't think it is.

    But, I was horrified when I launched my RadarBox 3D Program and discovered within a few minutes, Flight Data on WSSS started showing up.

    3). I turned OFF and ON my Radarbox 3D program a few times - www.rb24.com Flight Data on WSSS followed my turn ON and OFF.
    This to me would mean that it was on the same day, when he switched OFF and ON. English obviously isn't his first language so I suppose it could be doewn to interpretation.

    1). Of course it is not only on the same day but a few minutes apart.


    2). In fact I suspected the " Un-check " Share Flight data - is a FAKE. When I click " Apply " and " OK ", nothing happened.

    3). When I re-open the other window which was showing the www.RB24.com - I saw my Flight Data for WSSS showing up on their Website.

    4). I return to AirNav RadarBox 3D Ver 4.04 Window and completely closed the application.

    5). Then, I return to Window showing www.rb24.com - a few minutes later - Flight Data for WSSS disappeared.

    THIEF !

    It shows the "Un-checked" Share Flight Data is a scam !

    Try downloading a new copy of RadarBox software and install it again.
    See if that will fix the "Share Flight Data" check box. Once you do reinstall it. It should remember the un-check setting doing that time the software is running. It worked for me long time ago to fix that same problem...

    As far as I am concerned AirNav is stealing our data and I'm exploring every possible avenue to get this in front of an appropriate European and US authority. Having the share data automatically set to "On" every time the RadarBox software is started (even though the data owner has expressly chosen not to share) is theft, both of data and bandwidth. That can't be legal.

    In the meantime, Dave Reid has produced a utility to always set the data share to "Off".

    The download link is here:

    http://radarspotting.com/forum/index...33.html#msg133
    That Utility doesn't work.

    I am using it and still see my WSSS Data on their www.rb24.com screen.

    Looks like Airnav have found a way to overcome that Utility - I am using V4.04 ( they fixed the Equatorial Bugs - where i cant see any Tracked Aircraft )

    Try asking AirNav Systems for the updated beta V4.04 version to replace your older version.
