gleff: simple answer, the software will always give priority to HW flights. If the flight is not available on the HW then it gets its data from the real-time network. The server will always maintain only the last known position of each flight.

Ahh.. okay.. that makes sense.. and the more I think about it, it makes even more sense the way I'd see the aircraft.. that's great.. I was having visions of aircraft jumping back and forth on the screen LOL.

I ordered my RB yesterday.. Can't wait to get it.

Hi Pat


I am not sure what you are paying to PP.  As I said, once you have paid the very small fee at the start, all of the updates and network are provided FREE.
If you already have the RB or SBS for local traffic, then PP is fine for looking at other parts of the world for a lot of people.

The concept to sell foreign unlicensed data buffles me. While the delayed data network can be considered as a garbage collection, certainly the sale of real time data are subject to a license. The owners of such data are the owners of the aircraft sending them out. Licensing is one of the big revenue generators in commercial aviation. It would be naive to believe that AA, DL, BA, LH, KL and all the others let this go unhappened and Airnav would not be flooded by legal action within a few months. Not to mention security constraints, pilot unions, CAA, OFCOMs.. just o name a few. Lawyers are just waiting for something like this to happen. Users should expect that their prepaid fees are lost once servers will be shutdown due to copyright or security infringements.

Well, that's a very cheerful post for a Sunday morning - meant to frighten potential subscribers to the real-time Network I expect.  Completely off topic too.

Why is it?

Surely this is relevant, given all the previous announcements and comments about legality and security issues?

This is untested water and it is possible that outside influences could shut down the Airnav network servers.  Personally I wouldn't welcome it but if one has paid an advance subscription, would it be refunded?  Could it be?

OK, I'll rephrase that - the statement by palmar was out of CONTEXT with the way that the thread was progressing.

It does make me laugh how there were so many people complaining about the 5-minute delay and that there was no law to say that it should exist.  Now that there is the option to view real-time data, the doom merchants are coming out to say how awful it is that this is available and how everybody is going to loose their money.  As I see it. it's pure scaremongering and it is a direct attempt to discourage people from subscribing - I just can't see it any other way I'm afraid.

Having woken up to Network working and access to realtime flights, I had to switch off my PC for half an hour and when I returned to it and RB I find I am back to delayed Network. Anyone else getting this happen....?

Palmar,

We have already discussed this with our lawyers and also taken our time to consult many different authorities and got the go ahead. If there is a change a law or something does happen the customers will be protected and any time lost they will be refunded for.

Your post is a bit scare mongering and I our promise of refund on unused subscription puts it to rest for you and any others thinking along the same lines.

Roadrunner,

Shouldn't be like that, are you sure you didn't start a older version of RB :) We have had a few support tickets like that.

Like our Support write there is no reason for users to have any problem.

PS: We don't understand why the same users that complained so much about the lack of a Real-Time Network are now complaining about the problems that might arise from having it. Again the answers from our support say it all. Almost 100 users subscribed during the last 2 days which is an absolute success and shows that these kind of fears do not exist.

AirNav, you can't please everybody all the time.

I for one am very happy with the live network data feature, it's expanded my area by a massive amount, thanks for adding this amazing feature.
