Title: AirNav RadarBox 2009 (version 2.0) RELEASED
Post by: AirNav Development on August 19, 2008, 03:12:20 PM
The day everyone has been waiting for has arrived.

Welcome to the most advanced ADS-B flight tracking application ever developed, AirNav RadarBox 2009 (also known as version 2.0). This is a major release meaning lots of features were added.

This upgrade is free to all existing users.

Despite the enormous success of the AirNav RadarBox ADS-B receiver that now entirely dominates this market, AirNav Systems never stopped the development: at AirNav Systems work will never stop.

Upgrade Download Link (for users with version 1.5):
http://www.airnavsystems.com/download/anrb/anrbupgrade15to20.exe
(it will copy to your existing RB2008 folder all relevant files)

Full Version Download Link:
http://www.airnavsystems.com/download/anrb/anrb20setup.exe

Screen Shot (including a background NASA generated satellite photo of the UK):
(http://www.airnavsystems.com/images/anrb/RB2009-Shot1.jpg)

New Features:
- Track flight over NASA Satellite Layers - all the world covered;
- Automatic download of flight origin/departure information based on callsign;
- Screen Shot FTP Auto Upload - share received views automatically;
- New fields in MyLog tables (ADS-B, first/last position, altitude, ground speed);
- Flight Tour Feature - scroll over all tracked flights automatically;
- Network flights now with squawk information;
- Silhouettes drawn for each aircraft received;
- Major airport outlines by default - track flights on airport taxiways;
- Callsign/Route appear on MyLog Reports;
- MyLog by default orders by last time on both aircraft/flights table;
- MyLog new search options;
- MyLog refresh shortcut (F5)
- Optimization of MyLog feature to enabled millions of flight entries without affecting application performance;
- Over 1400 airline Logos included by default;
- Over 400 civilian/military flags included by default;

Corrections:
- Distance and Bearing automatically updated (not only on mouse move);
- Grid Column order correctly displayed for all numeric fields;
- Problems when application minimized corrected;
- Application 100% fast and stable and robust on simpler computers (average 65 Mbytes of memory used only);

We want to be an open minded company, happy to receive and implement user suggestions and always looking for improvements.
The degree of confidence and daily user interaction shown by more than 1000 AirNav Systems forum users shows it all.
Our forum is the place where our developers talk directly to the customers getting ideas and motivation for improvements.

A special thank you to all the users suggestions and to the team that helped us finishing this new version.

Congratulation on a great new version.  Some great new features!

Quick question.  Is this release identical to the final beta released late last night?  Will save me downloading/installing again.  Thanks.

As our support wrote answer is yes. We have made some changes after that (fine tuning).
We would highly suggest you to install the files announced on this post.

Well done to AirNav!

Especially as the changes are from user requests.

This proves that AirNav is a company willing to listen to its customers and act upon what it hears.

Three cheers to all those involved.

Having had a quick play, it looks very good.  One disappointment (for me, anyway) is the number of flights which still don't show departure/destination airfields.  I was under the impression that access to new databases would resolve this in the new version.  I notice that this is always the case with alphanumeric callsigns (eg: EZY236W), and often the case with straight numeric callsigns (eg: RYR6426).  On balance, I would suggest that there is no discernible difference in this area between this and the last versions.

When you (AirNav) outlined the improvements in this area in a number of threads,  I made a point of asking whether the improvements would also reflect in alphanumeric callsigns, but never had a specific answer.

I don't mean to nit-pick, as a lot of work has obviously gone into the new version, but this was an area of particular interest to me.

Also, how do I download a satellite image for France?  There doesn't seem to be one available.

Otherwise, thanks for all your efforts.

Regarding the satellite images: all the world is covered. Just go to the maps menu, satellite layer, download.

Regarding alphanumeric flight numbers: do you have a list with that information? Currently that information is not available in real-time outside EuroControl servers (with flight plan data). If you have such a list we would import it to our servers immediately.

Post by: AirNav Support on August 19, 2008, 04:42:34 PM
Deadcalm,

If you are not seeing routes for "normall" Flight IDs then its simply because our database does not have every single route. You should be able to check your route database and see that its being updated. However as Development says EuroControl is the only one with this data and they won't release it. We are doing the best we can.

Regarding alphanumeric flight numbers, these cause a great of deal of issue as they do not match the offical flight plan data we might have and also there isn't a set rule in how to go from to another. We can look into this for future versions however the software already provides a great leap.

Having had a quick play, it looks very good.  One disappointment (for me, anyway) is the number of flights which still don't show departure/destination airfields.

If you look at the routes table in Database Explorer, you can see the new routes marked in the CH column by the date that they were autopopulated.

Also, how do I download a satellite image for France?  There doesn't seem to be one available.

- Set up your ordinary map view of the bit of France that you want

- Click the new Satellite button on the toolbar (yellow satellite on a black background)

- Rather than accepting the name offered, type in Central France or whatever you like

- Click Save

- Your new map is now available in the Satellite drop-down list.

Also, a top-tip for clearing the satellite map:

- Scroll the map to a random bit of sea that you are never going to want to watch

- Zoom in to the maximum close up possible

- Click the yellow Satellite button

- Replace the offered name with Clear Layer or something like that (if you want this "map" to appear at the top of the list, you can save it as _Clear Layer)

- Click the Save Button

- Clear Layer appears in your satellite drop-down list

- To get rid of a displayed satellite map, just use the Clear Layer map, which loads a very small satellite layer in the middle of nowhere :-)

OK, thanks, Airnav & Allocator.  I wasn't having a go, but I was probably a little unsure about what to expect regarding the routes - which is why I wanted to get some factual feedback before the new version was released.

As far as the satellite download is concerned, I think I've sussed it - I was expecting France to be in the list!  Got it now, thanks.

As you are using a new RadarBox exe file, you have to allow it to connect through your firewall.  I use ZoneAlarm and just click the "Allow always" warning that comes up the first time you run the new exe.

No problem DC :-)

Those alpha numeric callsign/route tie-ups are a pain in the **** and that's for sure!

A silly question, but is this as simple as stripping off the last character if it's a letter rather than a number - or is it more complicated than that?

A quick demo of the FTP upload in action.

http://www.ruyton.demon.co.uk/html/radarbox.html

This facility is great for showing a friend just what Radarbox can do, as you can position the map anywhere to show traffic for that location - just remember that any changes you make to the map on your screen takes 5 minutes until it's uploaded.  A simple bit of html code refreshes the page every 60 seconds.

I'm not sure.  I don't know how FD6 works internally.  Just putting BMA67G into the Flight Identifier field at http://www.flytecomm.com/cgi-bin/trackflight works.  I've got FD6 configured to use Flytecom first.  Just putting BMA67 in doesn't work, so you can't just strip off the last character.

Attached are the routes FD6 has successfully looked-up over the last couple of weeks:

Post by: AirNav Support on August 19, 2008, 05:42:24 PM
Sometime it is other times there is more than one letter in the Flight ID and to make it worse sometimes what might be BMA67G is in the flight plan database as BMA679.

Anyhow the SQL database is there for intelligent guys and gals to create something to catch these ones. Otherwise the Route updatings works brilliant.

Since the new version 2.0, my computer crashes when I'm running Airnav Radarbox. I use Windows Vista......

Further, the program is not faster than the previous version on my other pc, who is quite some ears older (Windows XP).

So my first impression is that version 2.0 is NOT fast and stable........

Can you send us more details such as machine specs, when it crashes etc..? It was thoroughly tested by us and beta testers on this forum. Also we  see its being used by 50+ for the last few hours users and you are the first to mention this.

So we expect something else is causing your issue.

Your MyLog data will be empty if you installed Version 2 without doing the upgrade. Once it picks up things they are added to the filters, the filters only work on items which are actually there.

Racinghenk contact support directly. A blue screen error either means driver fault (unlikey if you have the latest version) or something else in your machine. The software itself if it gets into a tangle should not cause a restart.

All OK here, 338 aircraft received today - about 2 hours worth of receiving.  If you click "Show All" do you get any aurcraft in the MyLog list.  My Quick Filters are fine too.

Although I've been beta testing RB2009, I did backup the beta version and did a complete new install using the link at the top of this thread.  I did however copy my old MyLog.db3 and NavData.db3 files across to the \Data directory so that I've got data from before today.

Beware that you can't just copy a v1.5 database to use in v2.0.  There are new fields added.  During beta testing I did develop some SQL code to add the new fields, but that's a high risk solution!!

Could be!

I'm also having some strange issues having gone the upgrade route. My silhouettes are only showing for aircraft with a short name starting A, the airline logos are also only showing where the callsign starts A and almost no flight routes are showing. All the 'missing' items are in the correct folder or in the case of the flight numbers do exist in my routes table although it's interesting to note that my routes table has not added the new column needed for the 'date added' information.

How familiar are you with html code?

I've created a page on my web server and I load the FTP jpg picture to it.  I'm assuming that you have the web hosting address and passwords entered in the RB Preferences menu?  Don't forget to set the correct folder structure too in the Preferences section.

This is the code that causes the page to refresh every 60 seconds:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="60; URL=http://www.ruyton.demon.co.uk/html/radarbox.html">

And this is the code that shows the picture:

<td width="633" class="TextObject">

I assume you know your FTP settings. This feature is really for advanced users so just checking whether you know certain items.

If so, then the only issue is getting the root path correct

e.g /public_html/RB/ will get into a folder on FTP rather than what you may seem on the domain.com/RB/

You can find out the exact path from your website host.

Miguel,

If you have an FTP program, you can FTP to your web hosting domain and actually see the file structure.  I use WSFTP Pro.

For example, the web page with my RB picture is:

http://www.ruyton.demon.co.uk/html/airnav_radarbox.html

but I save the picture into this directory on the server:

/docroot/radarbox/

This is because my web host has told me to put all my files in the /docroot directory, just like the example Support was talking about /public_html/

You will only get a route if that aircraft was displaying a callsign when you detected it live.  To demonstrate this, click on the first aircraft in MyLog (top half of the window) and watch what happens in the bottom half of the window.

Press the cursor down key to go through all the records one by one.  Sooner or later you will see callsigns and routes appearing in the bottom window.

To do a complete new install, I renamed my old RadarBox directory, then I installed using the full install file at the start of this thread.

I suggest you do the same.  You will still have all your old files.  Try a new full install to get a working version of RadarBox, then we can talk about trnasferring your old database maybe.

Did you do a full install Steve, or an upgrade?

Just confirm that you have aircraft in the MyFlights list as well as the Network list?

We are happy to announce that we have just finished a change in our flight data server to enable alphanumerical callsigns to be properly decoded. So from now on callsigns like EZY67HP will have their origin/destination retrieved from our server.

Looks like your upgrade did not go correctly. Uninstall RadarBox 2009 (go into the directory as well and delete any files remaining) and then install the full version and run that and confirm to us whether that works ok.

Miguel,

I still think that this is an install problem - are you using Vista?

To have no flags, you are either missing the \Data\Flags directory, or you are missing the D008.dat file in \Data

Also in \Data is your MyLog.db3 file - this is where all your live flights are recorded.

Can you see the aircraft registrations, airline logos and the new silhouettes?

Confirm that you have aircraft showing in your MyFlights aircraft list?

Have you plugged your RadarBox receiver into a different USB port?

Is the USB cable connected correctly?

Okay, have managed to sort most of the issues with flags, logos, silhouettes and routes not showing - appears there was a memory issue my end. A good old fashioned reboot fixed everything except the country flags which still don't show in my updated version. In the full install version everything seems fine so it looks like I'll be sticking to that and porting across my database changes.

One question I do have. It appears that route information only gets updated for MyFlights and not Network traffic (when clicked on). Is this correct?

Just check the size of that MyLog.db3 file.  As a test I renamed mine and ran RB.  Result was no aircraft at all and yellow "not connected" lights for Hardware and Radarbox.  However RB had created a new "dummy" MyLog.db3 which was a file in name only, no database structure.

So, you do need either the new db3 file that comes with the full installation, or your old db3 file from your previous instalation.

Check your 2009 directory rather than your 2008 one.

Also some customers have experience slow loading with RadarBox 2009 when they have AVG8.0 installed. Enter a exception for the folder for RadarBox 2009 and it should run quickly.

 I had same problem of My Log and Reporter going blank on the upgrade from 1.5 to 2.0 and Alert alarm also quit working.
 So I uninstalled 2008 and reinstalled full 2.0 2009 and is working on Vista now but lost all my data that I manually added over past couple weeks.
  I made duplicate files of 2008 Airnav.dat and Airnav.bak files but can't seem to get them to work in new 2009 file.
 Guess I lost all that data for good.
  Make copies of all your data before reinstallingI guess is the lesson.

Hi all from a cold Sydney

Downloaded v2.0 to my PC (XP)

quick switch of RadarBox from my Laptop to check it out.

Thank you for adding Flight No.,routing, and Local Time to Reporter but a few problems:

Not reporting correct flight details e.g.:

VH-OJO operated QF127 Syd-Hkg
reporter shows QF1 which is SYD-BKK-LHR
route shownon reported is FAJS-YSSY.

Checked a few domestic flights same problem.

MyLog shows correct flight info.

Also tried ACARS which works fine except does not pick up Aircraft type.
(Don't normally worry about this feature)

My database and Mylog were intact from the last time I used the PC as I always run RadarBox on my Laptop.

Peter, Sydney

I'm using Vista - is this a common thread with all those with problems?

If it helps, I'm on Vista and have had no such problems at all throughout the beta testing.  Although I don't install in the default location.  To avoid Virtual Store confusion, I install in:
P:\AirNav Systems\AirNav RadarBox 2009.

I wonder if there's some problem associated with the Virtual Store.  Remember that anything ANRB tries to update in the installation directory will probably get placed in Vista's Virtual Store:
C:\Users\xxxxxxxx\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\AirNav Systems\AirNav RadarBox 2009.

That may not be the cause of these problems, but might be worth investigating.

Now I've had the chance to have a play, I have to say that the interface (for me) is just as slow and clunky as it's always been.  Menus are sluggish, windows take ages to open.

Also, when I open the MyFlights window, most of the window is blank.  There are the beginnings of lines down the left hand side of the window, which looks like the beginning of the "Bearing" column, but nothing else - the MyFlights total is currently 91, but I can't see 'em!  If I click on where the line should be, there is a summary of the aircraft details  in the bottom pane.

Just an update from us as some customers have asked how Version 2 has been received:

- 60%+ of customers using the network are now using Version 2
- Getting great feedback on the new features and fixes
- No major bugs have been found so far
- A few customers have had issues with the upgrade regarding coruppted data files (in that case install a fresh version 2 and delete the 2009 folder prior to installing)

Keep passing your feedback.

Hi

Just intalled RB2009 using the upgrade link and initially had the my flights grid showing and populated but the map itself was completely blank. Re-booted and have now got the my flights list and aircraft appearing on the map but not a single one of the aircraft on there are showing any route information at all.

Am also waiting an ecxessive amount of time for the application to load but reading this thread that seems o imply that AVG might me an issue with this. The remedy for this is to enter an exception of RB2009 but to be honest I don't know what you mean or how to do this.

Incidentally I don't have a RadarBox2009 directory structure either after the download.

Clearly I have done something wrong - can anyone enlighten me ?

Thanks

Wayne,

Uninstall and Install the full RadarBox 2009 not the upgrade.

Then go to AVG -> Tools -> Settings -> Exceptions -> Add path and enter the path to the AirNav Systems directory which should be in My computer, C Drive, Program Files, AirNav Systems.

Then run RadarBox 2009.

Hope that helps.

Is there a way of changing the order in which the columns appear in the main window? At the moment I only have Mode S, flight ID, registration, aircraft type and altitude turned on so as not to keep scrolling across the screen. If I turn on some of the new features ie routes etc it pushes altitude off the visible screen and altitude is a key sign of something which may or may not be heading to my local.

Menu's are still very slow to load though. CPU usage still varies from 30 to 100% but I am on the network at the moment so that may be having an effect.

Minimising and restoring seems to work ok

Paulc,

You can't change the order. I think you may have mentioned in past posts that your laptop is not that new. Its likely there are other apps running in the task bar near the clock.

What you should do is go to Preferences and increase the screen refresh rate from 1000 to 2000 and that should help.

AirNav - thanks for that - would it be possible to add the abiltiy to change the order to the next 'wish list' ? as it is something that I would find very useful if I am to get the full benefit of the new features. I have had to turn off routes and silhouettes in order to keep the altitude on screen.

Refresh rate already at 2000+  (laptop might not be that new but 2.7ghz / 1.5gb RAM is way above the min spec suggested - no other apps running either)
Preferences menu is the slowest of them all - 2 mins + at least before it opens.
It is a little quicker when not sharing data however

Welcome to the forum Mike, I'm surprised that you haven't posted before if you've been using RadarBox for a while.

The satellite images are great for me thanks and my PC is running very sweetly. I presume that you've seen this thread for examples of the layers? 

http://www.airnavsystems.com/forum/index.php?topic=1294.0

I don't understand what you are saying about a dark or light background - sorry.  As you will see on the forum here, people are creating their own colour schemes for use with the satellite layers.

The satellite pictures are downloaded at one zoom level, so if you download a picture and then zoom in or out, the picture will not be in "focus".  If you don't like then, then you don't have to use them - remember that this is a "free" option that you get as a RadarBox user, nothing extra to pay :-)

When I first tried the new update I had the AVG exception problem, but once I had made the exception I have had Radarbox running without problems now for three days.
I then went back and upgraded( after making a copy of my original) 1.5 to 2.0 and that too works without problems on my XP system so I get all my older data back.
So a pat on the back for Airnav, the software is great, and the new features are great and I am a very happy Radarbox user.

Hi
A different problem possibly me! On 2007 and 2008 clicking on fight in the my flights listing with just the scode and flight number showing but no registration produced one these were normally newly delivered aircraft but this feature doesn't seem to work anymore on 2009. I have tried reloading and checked that communication is allowed through the firewall.

Can someone tell me what I should be doing to get the updates surely the Emirates A380 should appear with a reg!

Thanks

What's the ModeS code for the Emirates A380?  You could try a manual lookup at http://www.gatwickaviationsociety.org.uk/modeslookup.asp to see if GAS have a record for this aircraft.

If the registration is know on the Airnav servers, then it should autopopulate in your MyFlights, even without clicking on it.  It's only network flights that you have to click on to populate them.

Thanks for this. Having reloaded 2009 I couldn't try the A380 but had 401388 missing at present. It  is on the Gatwick site (G-UKPS C208) so for some reason autopopulate isn't working!
Title: Re: AirNav RadarBox 2009 (version 2.0) RELEASED
Post by: tarbat on August 23, 2008, 09:26:24 AM
Yes, looks like autopopulate might not be working at the moment.  I've just tried clicking on 10 aircraft in the network list that have no registrations, and all remained blank.

Or it could be the autopopulate server is under heavy-load with everyone using v2.0.

It looks great. Though we have noticed that 1.5 was much faster on our pc than 2.0. With an refreshrate of 1 second it takes approximately 4 seconds for an actual refresh on the screen.

ajcbakker,

In your case its pretty simple what is happening. We have 2ghz P4 machine being tested in London with WinXP with nothing else installed and it runs under high message conditions however if you add network, uploading and other programs in background etc.. it will slow down and have trouble.

Simply because your using a lot of high end functions on a a machine which must be 5+ years old. You either have to cut back on features or get a fast machine I am afraid.

We can't produce miracles to give all the features and have it running nicely on slow machines.

Its early days yet, and fingers FIRMLY crossed, new version is operating trouble-free. It has been over a year now to finally get a stable version that does'nt keep freezing the screen.
I just downloaded the full version, rather than upgrade v1.5. It means I've got V1.3, 1.5 and 2.0 to chose from!
Good work to the upgrade team, like the new features.
Despite all the frustrations over the months, still think Radarbox has superior graphics to SBS-1. Keep up the good work.

tigiti,

I assume you have AVG Anti Virus installed. If so do the following,  double click on the AVG icon next to clock on the right hand corner of your screen.

Go to Tools -> Advanced Settings -> Execptions (under Resident Sheild) -> Add path -> Enter your path to AirNav Systems which is usually:

C:\Program Files\AirNav Systems\

(Location may be differen if using Vista)

Then click apply and run RadarBox 2009 and tell us whether it works.

DorsetGooner,

As its a new version, you need to give firewall permissions to RadarBox 2009 so it can download the network data.

If you've got Norton Anti-virus, then you should see a Norton Protection Centre icon.  Looks like this (without the X though).  Use "Scan Exclusions" to exclude the ANRB folders from virus checking.

When it loads, can you press CTRL - ALT - DEL and Process, sort by CPU and tell us the names of the top two process and there CPU values.

In case others haven't realised, if you're using Vista, you also need virus checking exceptions for the Virtual Store.  C:\Users\xxxxxxxx\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\AirNav Systems

Otherwise Norton (or others) will constantly be checking the MyLog and Navdata databases, which really slows everything down.

Or, my advise is NOT to install ANRB in C:\Program Files\AirNav Systems, but somewhere like C:\AirNav Systems

Hi there
Im quite impressed with the 2009 edition but have noticed an issue which is bugging me. Although nobody else here seems to be getting it so could just be me messing up.
Basically I get all myflights and network flights fine but whenever I try and use the filter I get problems. Say if I select "aircraft" and "B744" in the drop down menus then press "filter" it does nothing for about a minute. Then the aircraft list goes blank (even though there are B744 visible on my map screen!).
Then when i try and return to "show all" it does nothing.
Theres no aircraft list in either myflights or network tab. The map still works fine.
The only way I can get my list back is by shutting down ANRB and starting it up again.

The first install was the upgrade from the 2008 edition. But when the problems started I uninstalled it and installed the whole 2009 edition from scratch. But still had problems so today I uninstalled again (from C:/program files/AirNav.....) and reinstalled into C:/AirNav Radarbox.... but still no joy.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Hi Allocator
Im afraid that is exactly what I have been doing all along. With my previous ANRB (which worked) and with this 2009 edition. But its only with the new spec that I have been getting problems.
Everytime I try and filter something, whether its airline, aircraft, company etc. If I select the company for example in the drop down, then british airways (plenty of them on my map as im in London) then press filter it does nothing for about a minute. All I get is a blank line where my aircraft list was. (This happens with both myflights and network tabs)

If I want to bring the aircraft list back, usually I could press the "show all" button afterwards but this does nothing.

Ok ive added a screenshot taken just now. Tried to get a filter for British Midland. There was one a/c on my map at the time in the picture. It should have been added to the filter list.....but wasnt!
Title: Re: AirNav RadarBox 2009 (version 2.0) RELEASED
Post by: Allocator on September 03, 2008, 08:31:39 PM
OK, 2 things here.

Look at the company names in the aircraft list.  I don't have any called "British Midland Airways Ltd", so I get the same result as you.

However, I do have "BMI British Midland" in the list, so when I do a search for:

Company = BMI British Midland

then the search works correctly.

The same applies for British airways.  In the list they are "British Airways" not "British Airways Plc" or any of the other British Airways options in the drop down.

Also, why isn't there anything in that middle drop down box between the Company bit and the British Midland Airways Ltd.  You should have one of the following in that drop-down:

=
<>
>
<

and of course what you need is "="

Climb1, I also suffer from this problem with the filter.

I have other issues with the smooth running of RadarBox, which have been aired in this forum a number of times, but in respect of which I don't seem to be getting anywhere.  I've been in contact with Andre Brandao about these issues, including the one which you detail (quote from my E mail: "I sit and wait for ages for menus to appear, or clicked buttons to function.  I've also found that selecting the Airline filter menu rarely works - either by selecting All or a specific airline.  I am sitting here at the moment staring at an empty radar map."

I appreciate that mine is allegedly an unusual case (as Airnav is at pains to remind me), but promises of possible remedies have yet to be fulfilled.

DC,

I don't recall your filter problem - are you running Vista, I don't remember.  The only way I can confuse the Quick Filter is by not selecting anything in that centre drop-down box - specifically "="

If you enter the Quick Filter details correctly as I described above, what happens?

Remember, if you filter for something that doesn't exist - and remember, it has to match 100% here - you will get an empty list.  Filter correctly and it works correctly.

It doesn't really help you, but I use the filters all the time and they are excellent.

Hi All,

After installing the FULL-version 2.0 of the RadarBox software all looks working beautifull on my PC.

The only problem I see is the route-information. So I asking me of it is allowed to copy my database-backup from version 1.5 into version 2.0 so that I have all my added route information (more then 1.000) back or is al my work (again) been for nothing.

I also see verry strange things as, per exemple, flight BAW7. It is for years EGLL-RJAA but on the RadarBox it appers as EGLL-CYUL. I am sure that in my database used in version 1.5 the route information of this flight is correct.

Any advice will be verry welcome. Thank you in advance.

Copy the backed up file into the RadarBox 2009 folder and it should update it to the new format.

However please note if there are some issues with that database it might fail and you won't see any routes appearing.

Hello. I just updated from version 1.5 to version 2.0

Hi Manuel,

I also had some problems after upgrading from 1.5 to 2.0. AirNav Support did recommend me to install the full version 2.0. After doing that all problems where solved.

Manuel

You could check that the logo files are in the correct place.

Don't take any notice of the directories that end with Org (Original) - these are just backup folders I've created.

Hi again. Affirmative. The logos are on the correct folder on the correct place. Maybe I'll try to leave my Radar on for the night too see what appens.

Manuel,

I suggest that you do a full install of RadarBox 2009 as it looks like the upgrade didn't work completely.

OK. Thanks for all your help.

I had exactly the same problem Manuel and despite re-trying the upgrade several times it never fixed it. Tried the full install instead and copied over my NavData database, photos etc. from v1.5 and all worked fine. Go the full install route instead :)

Hello there. Thanks for your support. Now with logos my AirNav RadarBox 2009 is working wonderfully. Faster than 2008 version. Keep going ;)

Hello there. So I was thinking for a future release how about instead of plus and minus signal for climb and descend a up arrow for climbing and a down arrow for descend? Worth to try :)
Thanks.

Aplogies if this has been discussed previously.

The daily Report function has been greatly improved in ANRB'09. However, it only appears to include one entry per aircraft in the Daily Report ie multiple sectors for a particular aircraft are omitted.

Is there a way around this problem. (Airnav ACARS has always reported correctly), am I missing something, or could this be amended in the next patch/release.

Regards

Mike

Looking for military a/c, do they show ?
For example UK military show as 43C???
The competitive box does.....

Peter, yes of course - RadarBox can do everything better than the SBS-1 right out of the box :-)

Also, see the FAQ on the forum regarding displaying military flags and the section in the downloadable help manual which talks about tracking military aircraft.

Remember that military aircraft will only show in the aircraft list with both boxes, and not on the map.

Hi,
Brand new puchaser of system. Installed and runs well BUT the CD supplied is for AIRNAV2007. Tried down loading update but failed and then tried renaming folder as old and down loaded the full package. When started the green box shows validating the db3, optimising and then starting the application then nothing. Windows task master shows prog not responding. Reloading the orginal cd and all is well.
Any sugestions what to try next ?

I assume you have AVG Anti Virus installed. If so do the following,  double click on the AVG icon next to clock on the right hand corner of your screen.

Go to Tools -> Advanced Settings -> Execptions (under Resident Sheild) -> Add path -> Enter your path to AirNav Systems which is usually:

C:\Program Files\AirNav Systems\

(Location may be differen if using Vista)

Then click apply and run RadarBox 2009 and tell us whether it works.

Sorry but problem now fixed. I looked thru a number of passed e-mails on the forum and the penny dropped. Yes it was the AVG. Suggest this is added to the download page to remind idiots such as me to check.
Many thanks for an great product.

Hi,
How do I know what version I am running?  Just got the Radarbox yesterday, do I need to upgrade to version 2?

Thanks

Hi - if the title bar at the top of the screen says "AirNav RadarBox 2009", then you're running the latest version.

If it doesn't say that, then download the latest version (the full one, not the upgrade) here: http://www.airnavsystems.com/RadarBox/support.html (http://www.airnavsystems.com/RadarBox/support.html)

Anyone else noticing that the daily report only gets mailed once?  Restarting the program gets me a report the next day, but then no longer.  Do I have to restart every day?  Thanks!
