Actually, I bought the unit through a local agent. I have already contacted him and he agreed that he will replace the unit. Still, it's a mystery to me what could be the problem. When also looking at another post there are more people with this strange behaviour of the unit :-(

Doesn't really matter what the problem is, if you are getting a replacement box :-)

David,
I think you are on to something. I too only received some nearby adsb contacts with my own unit. I just connected another hardware unit which I now have on loan from the local agent, and WHOW: 185 airliner contacts up to 200 NM away ! My own unit is on its way to Airnav, I hope they find out what is wrong with it.

I too am now seeing this problem.

I have emailed support ( Today ) and am awaiting a reply but why are there so many getting similar faults all of a sudden?

Anyway, looking forward to getting it fixed now Viking9 has shown me how to use it properly :-)

Gentlemen, I believe there  to be a fault in the front end of the rb,eg, where it receives the data from the antenna,i am parcelling it up this weekend to send it back for service/ repair. Please see my  polar diagrams, the most recent one is rather truncated I think you will agree.
sincerely,davidh.

Hi David, I've found that range and reception is extremely weather dependent - high pressure and clear skies - very good range, misty, cloudy, rainy low pressure - range much diminished.    Anyone else find this?    I thought mine was going deaf, but then it started going berserk again - could it be routing is drastically altered by weather patterns?

Hi CoastGuardJon,

My problem is certainly not weather initiated> I was at an airfield reently with another user in the car next to me. I was seeing 12 aircraft, he was seeing numbers in the hundreds.

We had exactley the same kit.

Thanks
