    AirNav banned me in their forum

    AirNav banned me in their forum.

    My "crime" ?

    - " for trying to cause trouble there. "

    What I did there to get banned ?

    - exposed their software for stealing my Data from my AirNav Radarbox 3D -
    - even though I UNCHECKED " Share Flight Data " .

    1). My RadarBox 3D just reached 1 year old and the Free 1 year Data subscription expired. I ignored their reminder to renew the subscription.

    Next Day, I was cut off from the world wide data - fair enough.

    2). When I was watching their new Site www.rb24.com and found there was no Flight Data on WSSS.

    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.

    4). So, I posted in AirNav Forum - I got BANNED for " trying to cause trouble " until 30 Dec 2012.


    My response to AirNav - simple turn off my AirNav RadarBox 3D - don't give them the data.

    Anyone here knows how to PERMANENTLY turn OFF the Share Flight Data ?

    AirNav is pretty sneaky by " Not remembering your settings " in their software.

    Piopawlu.net once released a patch that could turn off the Airnav sharing, but piopawlu has closed down his page now.
    If you google on airnavpatch20091021.exe you can find it on some download pages, but I don't know if it's safe to download, and I don't know if it turns of the "invisible" share.

    Thanks Mike for the info.

    I am quite reserved about downloading unknown software.

    Thanks AirNav for pissing off their customers !

    Welcome to the "Club" Birdie. Soon there will be more "banned" RadarBox owners than active members on it's forum.

    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:

    Thanks Anmer.

    When I didn't renew by Remote Data subscription - AirNav cut me off the next day - Fair enough - I didn't pay, so i should NOT get it.

    BUT, then AirNav STOLE my Flight Data from my Box without permission by FORCING me to share flight Data wven though I already unchecked the box - it WON'T ACCEPT my unchecking the " Share Flight Data" -

    - this is THEFT !

    Can anyone with more computer savvy than me explain how this can happen?

    If you select data share off, how can Air Nav glean information coming from your radarbox?
