As a reminder, below V3.0 changes/new features and download links.

RadarBox is the only receiver with an integrated worldwide ADS-B network and with a huge set of features inside a single application without the need of installing 3rd party addons. AirNav RadarBox 2009 - V3.00 is by far the most complete, sophisticated, reliable and accurate ADS-B decoding software ever released.

As usual work never stops at AirNav Systems. We are already developing the brand new "AirNav FlightWatch" application to be released later this year. This will be focused on the professional market but with an enthusiast version also available. It is the only software able to track flights using an worldwide data source network: FAA Radar System, ADS-B, RadarBox Unit, ACARS and Flight Plan information.

Full Download:

We have about 20 problems reported. The 3 major ones are now corrected.
The remaining are easier to correct and we will be working on them during the next 3 days. After that we plan to send the .exe to the user that reported some of those problems - once we get a green light from all of them we will have the new .exe available to the public.

We want to have some good news by July 2nd.

Can I suggest that a date for the .EXE be added to the download links above, along with any patch Version detail - patch1    for instance, so users can see if there is a newer version of the Beta.

Thanks.

Updated for reply below:-

I was thinking of the Public Beta and it's build date - NOT all the restricted pool Beta versions!!!

Jgrloit: we would do that but since there are external factors that do not depend on us (pre-testing done by users that complained) we can't. We want to send the new .exe to those users this Tuesday - we will keep this thread informed on what's going on.

Development

A very minor bug, on the myflights list you have the red outline to show which square your cursor is on.  If you have a flight that doesn't autopopulate for example if you are not connected to internet. On the blank line in the myflights list the red cursor outline disappears on the empty silhouette column.  It appears in all other columns and on silhouettes of populated aircraft.

Hi I originally reported that V3 works faster for, which it does, but after the program has been running for a short time the menus stop working.

I do not know if this is possible but when you click a spot and drag the courser and instead of moving the map it shows the bearing and a line from where you clicked to the current mouse position (like a real radar at ATC would)?

How long have to left the software loading before giving up?  The new install seems to take a while to check all the files on first run.

Also, there was no need to unistall your previous version of RB, as V3.0 Beta installs into a totally separate directory - although with Vista, I'm not too sure what it does!

Glad I skipped the whole Vista thing!
