    Thumbs down AirNav Systems Company and RadarBox product - What its Customers Think

    Some good reading about AirNav Systems company and RadarBox hardware/software product this week.

    Topic: AirNav - What its Customers Think

    Topic: AirNav RadarBox Discussion / Remember this?

    I used to promote the product to family and friends...not anymore unfortunately. I still enjoy the package and use it daily, however some enhancements/updates would be nice. I am making sure to cancel my network subscription next time around as well. It's all about the almighty dollar unfortunately.
    I gave up waiting for bugfixes and a new version and have bought a SBS-3 in the meantime.
    Don't use my radarbox anymore. I have never experienced such a bad support with any other product I bought.
    Pretty obvious AN don't care who no longer subscribes to the product or who does or doesn't share data. After all, they are continually giving away boxes for free to make up the numbers of those users going elsewhere (many of them long-standing users and beneficial to them) !
    Now it's the USA that's being targeted !
    I suppose it's one way of getting rid of an obsolete product.
    The best quote from Tarbat on the AirNav Beta Testing team.
    I gave up as well. No longer running Radarbox or ShipTrax.

    Please don't forget to mention:

    AirNav Systems STEAL Flight Data without permission by DECEIVING customers into believing they can DISABLE "Share Flight Data" - when in fact, "Share Flight Data" got ENABLED again when the pop-up window is closed.

    The Flight Data is fed into their PAID Network and Radarbox24.com

    I screwed AirNav Systems wholesale by switching OFF my AirNav Radarbox and use it as a paper weight but it failed to work as a paper weight because it is to light.

    Interesting info from Radarspotting Forum Raffle draw result.

    There are opportunities:

    1). To send a Flightradar24 receiver to 15 people without a Mode-S receiver - to expand the network,

    2). To convince the 30 "NO" to feed into Flightradar24.

    Can't believe W&S slagging off Air Nav, perhaps Air Nav forgot to send them the little brown envelope last month.

    Whatever, people are hacked off with being fed lie after lie from Air Nav. More subscriptions will be ended and more people will cotton on and switch off data share.

    Don't be fooled about all the free boxes they gave out ages ago with the promise that it would increase coverage for radarbox users. That was also a lie, it was to suppliment the data needed for RB24.com, nothing else.

    I wish I had an SBS-1 right now!

    When I was young, my grandfather told me this:

    " Don't tell lies - if you tell 1 lie on Monday, you need to tell 2 lies on Tuesday to cover up Monday's lie. On Wednesday, you need to tell 4 lies to cover up Tuesday's 2 lies. Eventually, you will tell ALL LIES ".

    This is what AirNav Systems is doing now!

    Don't forget - those who received the free box NEED to leave their PC ON 24/7 - consuming at least 200 watts, Internet Modem / router ON and constantly Uploading Data into RB24 - Some internet subscription have Data Capped at XXX GB and any excess will cost money.

    BesTEST is Flightradar24 Receiver - no need a PC on 24/7. Low power consumption.

    Maybe, the little brown envelope is empty or over-due by 6 months.

    Topic: Buying a RadarBox? Read this First
    http://radarspotting.com/forum/index.php/topic,2497


    The polished look to the program was one of the reasons I went with a Radarbox. Little did I know that a new version hadn't been released in years and by the look of it, won't be released anytime soon.
    With the price of an RTL dongle and Planeplotter being so low, you would think AirNav would protect it's high price point for the Radarbox and network access by continuing development and keeping it's customers happy.
    My Radarbox sits idle now and I won't be renewing my network access subscription when it's up. I've already gone through one long outage with no compensation for the lost time.

    all this cross-posting of other peoples original posts between forums is getting very very overboard and tiring.

    This forum is meant to be about fr24, and support around it, and we're struggling to find these linked in that respect

    Sure, there is other off topic aircraft related stuff that Mike is happy to have here (And engage with users etc about stuff outside of fr24), But its largely original and specific to users or content creators here, not just links from elsewhere pasted back n forth.
