It really would be much better if we had not that be manually updating the data.
But here in Brazil and I believe should occur in other countries, many aircraft remain long with the code ModeS country of origin. For example, several aircraft maintains the code ModeS U.S. and has a record-Brazilian PR-??? '. In previous automatic updates whenever I lose all the data that took a long time to get upgrade. Therefore, if each record-level option to mark whether or not to auto update would be helpful.

You'll be able to mark each of these aircraft with AUTOUPATE = N, to retain your manual updates.  Although it might be better to inform the database update team if the aircraft details are wrong.

So will be great!

Yes I am already in contact with the upgrade team to send my data with the updated information of aircraft circulating in Brazilian skies.

Thanks for the feedback guys. From what I see your arguments make sense now.

You can judge the quality of data from my log of yesterday's flights while beta testing.
See http://www.tarbat.gofreeserve.com/data.htm

To those who noticed the "Régional/Air France" on my web-page log, don't worry, this problem with diacritical marks is only a problem on my web-page, not in the Radarbox beta!!

sounds really great, personaly i would prefere a automatic update by default, with a option to check it to manualy for the few records where a personal update is nessecary.
but any upgrade of what whe have now, would be mutch apreciated

Good point can the option be to update or not before you start the radar box.

I don't think, that it is possible to select before starting the radarbox software, but I think it shall be easy to add a selection list, were it is possible to select which section shall be set to auto-up-date and which shall not be set, during the first start-up of RB software.

But I think if an option is added to deselect all entries from auto-up-date, there should also be added the possibility to toggle it back. Of course for each section of Database.

Hi,
I think the update should be the choice of the user. If at startup or later according to the user's decision. I agree that it should not automatically run. I apologize for my English.

I don't think, that it is possible to select before starting the radarbox software,

Why Not? I would have thought that adding another "button" to the "Welcome" box would be easy enough.
At the moment there are 4 buttons: Start, Account, Cancel and Start Demo.
Change the Start button to "Start with Auto-Update" and add another "Start without Auto-Update"
Seems, that we have a different opinion about before starting. In my oppinion the software is already running if it is comming to the "welcome" box. For you software is running, if Box is already receiving airframes. Ok, this misunderstanding is settled.

But I've to tell you, that I've totally disagree with the way you are proposing.

1. I'm using an option to avoid this box. That way the log-in is performed automatically. Only first start after installation is with welcome box. I don't like the idea to go back to the state were I have to click buttons to get the software to receiving state.

2. I want to have the option to select the section of database that is set to auto-update mode. Airframes yes, Routes No for examples. With your proposal it's only yes or no for whole Database.

3. I don't want to make this decision on each start, but more or less once for all at first start-up.

May be it is the best that on first start-up auto-update is set to off.
And a possibilty to switch on the auto-update function for each section is implemented whether in section preferences or directly at navdatabase editor. First time autoupdate is selected, the Y is added to all entries except the ones were a N was added before autoupdate was ticked first time.

I guess we will not get the perfect way for everyone.

Maybe AirNav will set the Auto-Update to OFF. Not only will it prevent anyone's Databases from being overwritten, but by opting into it, the demand on the AirNav servers would be less.

Quite right romdouk, I'm sure that's the best route.

Hi Alan, without going into detail and starting the well done discussion yet again - you know just what I'm getting at, I'm certain!

Yes John I am fully aware of what is meant but like yourself I can still have my view on the subject.

Any way the thread is about the proposed autoupdate feature so lets keep it that way.
