    We have been buying data from RB24 (T-F4V) for about 8 months. Last 3-4 months we have not used RB24 data over Europe as the data quality was lower and more delayed compared to our own data. Now when agreement has ended we have lost some coverage in China, Mexico and Colombia, but we are sending out about 10 FR24 boxes every week to catch up the loss.

    Hi Mike thanks for your information. I was saying that i couldnt see much change in the amount of aircraft it all looked on a par with what i was used to seeing. i hope to one day buy an adsB receiver at some stage and then will hopefully help with a feed in the Durban area, but that is in the future. Thanks once again.

    Shocking !

    AirNav STOLE Data from their customers' RadarBox and sold the stolen data !

    I was correct all the way in gunning at AirNav.

    I did the right thing by Power OFF my AirNav RadarBox.

    Sounds like it's AirNav Systems "XML Flight Data" that was being used by FR24.
    It's not really called "RadarBox24.com real-time flight data" or "RB24 data",etc..
    It should be called what it really is!!!
    AirNav Systems basically saying FR24 will never ever again be able to buy the "XML Flight Data" subscription ever again....

    Well... It was fun reading on how AirNav Systems wrote/released this public statement.

    *************************************
    RadarBox24.com Our post means that our data will not be supplied anymore to FR24 and only shown on our site. The result is that our coverage continues to be the same (ever increasing worldwide coverage) while other sites will not show anymore our own data, thus decreasing their coverage.

    RadarBox24.com We see that we have a lot of Flightradar24 fans on our page. Unfortunately the only way you will have to track flights in several world locations is now using RadarBox24 as we stopped sharing our data with FR24 yesterday.
    Note that with RB24 flight data accuracy is the same as used by many airlines and professional users worldwide.

    Did we see anything become of recent claim that they are filing notice against FR24 for domain names and stolen ideas/features that have been in use for years already...

    I also find this a bit strange to offer.

    Anyone met any programmers that are also pilots? Cause apparently most the system is developed by pilots, wouldn't think they would have that much time on their hands?

    RadarBox24.com Michal, actually it's exactly the opposite. Since we have released RB24 some features have been copied and implemented by the site you refer to and they've already been legally advised about that fact. As you may understand this is not the place to discuss details on this problem.

    Most FAA ASDI tracking sites(FlightAware) also offer that to aircraft owner. To track their "blocked" aircraft on those type of sites.

    Very Fortunately, the 2 Major Aircraft Manufacturers didn't employ these "pilots" to develop their airplanes - or else we see regular CRASHES - just like ANRB 3-D crashed whenever you close down other programs !

    Normally got quite a bit of T-F4V feed at mainland China and Hong Kong. Now there's no a/c apart from the feeder from Shanghai which has a very good coverage.

    Personally I would be happy to do without any feed from AirNav!
    Better for you to stare at my feed - when I am in full speed, you might not see your own feed - LOL !
