updating/ changing VORs NDBs
« on: September 24, 2007, 09:45:37 AM »
I would like to alter/ delete some VORs/ NDBs that are not up to date. Where can I change this data?

Like Marcus I was wondering about updates. For example since Coltishall closed the name has changed of the VOR/TACN to EA1, and I would like to change it.  I was also wondering if the outlines could be split (airfields by major,minor, heleports) so that we can have a choice of what we use. With RB it is all or nothing so it gets very cluttered. The only way I can see to reduce it at present is to delete (or move) some of the files from the outlines folder but that is a bit hit and miss. I am using Bones outlines set but don't know how I can exclusively use them and switch off the original RB ones.  SBS1 allows a choice of what is seen, down to only showing the local airfields if so desired.

In RadarBox you can select what is seen on the screen using the map menu. We are developing a feature that will download automatically updated NAVAID each AIRAC / 28 day cycle.

Thank you AirNav Dev.

Until you have developed the automated update, is there any chance to add/ delete/ rename Navaids manually?
I would also like to add other user points like compulsory reporting points, even if they are not used in IFR-traffic. Adding special points with outlines-files doesn't look that great on the map.

Regards,

Thanks for that it really sounds good. I am aware of the on/off choices for VOR NDB etc but for airfields we have them all on or off. I am stuck with having places like Panshanger (light aviation) and Heathrow (Major airfield) I would like to keep the major airports showing but switch off all the light aviation, gliding and heliports. Is that possible for a future upgrade - it could avoid a lot of clutter. Alternatively, let us have access to each of the airfields profiles to enable switch on/off as required (as per SBS1).
