Yes, there's several Radarbox owners that use Planeplotter.  I share my Radarbox data all the time on the Planeplotter network (sharer code is pQ).  In some areas of the UK the Planeplotter network has greater coverage than the Airnav network, and most SBS-1 owners sharing on the Planeplotter network share "real-time", not 5 minute delayed.

Yes, I use Planeplotter too and have done since before I got my RadarBox.

It doesn't use AirNav data, it uses data from RadarBox - maybe that was what you meant, but there is a difference.  It also can use data from the SBS-1, offering those poor SBS-1 users access to networked shared data :-)

I use PlanePlotter with the RadarBox too and share my data on the network (share code is 'ct'). Unlike AirNav, PlanePlotter allows users to save data from the network and produces much more useful logs for my purposes than AirNav. Here's an extract from my report for yesterday showing only military aircraft.

http://www.viking9.co.uk/PP_Mil_report_281008.txt

Military aircraft usually do not report position but a free application, MyCircles, allows one to display circles on PlanePlotter's charts showing the coverage area of the sharers tracking a particular aircraft or group of aircraft. This, in conjunction with the squawk code, allows one to produce a fairly good guesstimate of the track of a non-positional aircraft.

Now if only I could get the vector maps working properly with PlanePlotter.

I also use Planeplotter for the above reasons but even more then that it allows me to record all my contacts from RadarBox directly into the All Heard Management of Airnav Suite 4 albeit on a 5 minute delay.
