    Have you tried searching for Win7 64 bit on the AirNav forum? I'd post a question for you but I'm not allowed to as they think I complain too much.

    Maybe join and ask for help but choose your words carefully. If you sound upset they may ban you too:

    Bill,

    Radarbox definately works with Win7 64-bit, that's what I run.



    So, have you downloaded and installed the 64-bit drivers from http://www.airnavsystems.com/downloa...bitDrivers.zip

    Instructions taken from http://www.airnavsystems.com/RadarBox/support.html
    Our new Microsoft Certified Driver package is now available from:
    http://www.airnavsystems.com/downloa...bitDrivers.zip

    Instructions:
    1- Download the file above;
    2- Unzip it to a folder on your computer;
    3- Disconnect your RadarBox USB cable, wait a few seconds and connect it again;
    4- When Windows prompts you to find the proper RadarBox driver browse the folder where you have extracted your drivers to;

    If the above Windows prompt box does not appear:
    1- Go to Windows Control Panel - Device Manager- USB Controllers - RadarBox - Driver - Update Driver
    2- Point at the relevant folder and install the drivers;

    Feel free to contact our support or this forum if you have any question.
    I'd also recommend downloading the latest Radarbox software as well from http://www.airnavsystems.com/RadarBox/support.html

    Any other questions, just ask.

    Good morning everyone,
    Well I have read this particular thread once or twice and I have come to the conclusion that these radar systems,whichever make you choose, are a Licence to print money both for the makers and the retailers.
    These systems are more or less obsolete and need updating before they leave the shelves.
    If one wants to get technical within our hobby and you buy one of these systems, it seems as though you better have a really good healthy bank balance to keep up with the updating of these things.

    The hobby of an aircraft enthusiast has changed over the years, it has come on "leaps and bounds" with all sorts of new modern equipment for sale. But what ordinary, working bloke can afford to keep up with all the money that these items cost, let alone the original outlay to start with.
    As you know I have recently paid out which in my mind was a largeamount of money for one of these radar systems and have had nothing but problems with it because of my PC, but in the begining I was not offered proper information about it, either by the makers in their advertisement or by the retailer in the selling of the item and I am not a clever bloke, I am not technically minded and have come very close to wasting £399, simply because money came first and customer service came second by the vendor.
    I am apalled that these people can treat, non technical people like me, within the hobby, the way they do to make money an I think some official body should be made aware of these goings on. I worked all my life and now I get my pension(s) but I have worked to deserve them plus the fact that I am an old aircraft enthusiast having been in the hobby for at least 40 "odd" years, I still depend on the simple old ways of the hobby and the only technical thing I depend on is my scanner, but if I want to TRY and get involved in what I call "the modern hobby", I have to first spend a lot of money (as above) and then take the chance of being ripped off by nothing more than a money making scam !!
    So I have this radar box, it is not perfect by any standard, but I flatly refuse to either spend any more money with it, or get stressed or annoyed about it any longer.
    I made a mistake albeit an expensive one, but it will not happen again because I now refuse to get involved in the "modern hobby" of being an aircraft enthusiast, I am sticking to the old ways that have given me no trouble whatsoever since the sixties when I first started. I never used to be glued to a computer screen to do the hobby, I was out in the fresh air viewing and spotting. We never used to talk about Squawks and all that stuff, that was left to the ATCs and aircrews, all that has come about with modern times and people trying to make the enjoyable simple non offensive hobby of ours more technical and a good excuse for the makers and retailers of these "expensive toys" to make money money money " Well they "aint" making any more out of me !!

    Thank you.

    Bill
    A genuine old fashoined aircraft enthusiast.

    For those who don't want to spend money on the radarspotting part of the hobby, there are many free aircaft tracking websites such as Flightradar24. Those with iPhones, iPads and Androids can also join in, spending a few Euros to add value to the free phone apps that are also available.

    For a few more Euros, one can get the COAA PlanePlotter software and "borrow" data from other PlanePlotter sharers. If one wants more control and guaranteed local traffic then that's the time to consider buying a receiver, of which there are now many, some not too expensive.

    All aspects of the radarspotting hobby is covered, from tracking websites to receivers, in my free "What's Radarspotting?" Guide.

    In addition, I've produced another free comparative guide on all the commercially available, pre-built receivers. I've also written one on assembling the Beast.

    As for advertising, one company in particular "embellishes" the truth and is hoodwinking the consumer. I've already reported its main distributor, Waters & Stanton, to Essex Trading Standards which forced it to stop using a misleading "Fact Sheet" and action is now being taken against Waters & Stanton by the Advertising Standards Authority for a recent advert in Airliners World which contravened the Advertising Code.

    My advice to anyone wanting to get involved in radarspotting is to join Radarspotters, the only independent forum specialising in this aspect of the hobby and free to join. Radarspotters was created to provide free help and advice and, where appropriate, expose those who try and exploit the likes of Bill. And, as can be seen by the blog referred to in this thread, some don't approve of what we do and it's not hard to work out why.

    Well chaps, I said my piece this morning, in a previous post, but my goodness what a sad state of affairs this whole mess is.
    The more I read the more divulging the the situation becomes.
    It is clear now that for one, I "cocked up" and should have done more research on the eqpt before I bought it.

    But what a sad state of affairs it really is.
    I enjoy Flightradar 24 live tracking, I am on there every morning early "am" and as regards this forum, well it too is brilliant and thank you to everyone for making me welcome when I joined.

    Regarding the Airnav problem of mine----- I am sick and tired of the whole episode, I have got it set up on a XP laptop and that is where it can stay as far as I am concerned. Over the last week, it has cost me "Loadsa"money, it has cost me time and it has cost me stress and at my time of life I want none of those problems.
    It can stay where it is whilst I get on with the hobby as I always have.

    RIP Airnav !

    Have a good day everyone.

    Bill
