Firstly, a caveat.  I'm only running a very early beta of v4.04, but that gives me an insight into how this should work.

My only concern is that whenever V4.04 is released and I install it, my databases are not overwritten between the actual installation of V4.04 (once I have inserted my own NavData db3 file) and having to make a selection to opt out of Auto-Update in "Preferences" each and every time I start my RadarBox.

I'd be surprised if that were the case.  I would expect that if you have the "Auto-Populate Aircraft Data" option unticked in v4.03, then that will still be unticked after updating to v4.04:

And as in v4.03, these options are remembered between sessions in v4.04.

All that the installation of v4.04 does is add some new fields to the aircraft table, one being the AUTOUPDATE field, which is set to "Y" on all existing records.  And if you have the "Auto-Populate Aircraft Data" unticked, even records with AUTOUPDATE set to "Y" don't get updated when running v4.04.

But even then, a mass update of the whole aircraft table would only occur if you press the "Start Update" button in the new database explorer.

I hope I've explained that clearly.  I don't think you need worry that installing v4.04 will suddenly overwrite all you manually edited aircraft records.

Anyway, back to beta testing!!

Thanks for the further insight Tarbet, I cannot see there which would cause even the most negative of individuals any problems or concerns.

Each user can select whether to update their database or not and even then can further select which tables to update and can go even further and select which data within each table gets updated or not.

Looks very good to me

Looking good and I guess the only outstanding question is the quality/accuracy of the data.

I asume sources will not be changed? No chance of better Routes?

Now there's a novelty!  Thanks Alan, I look forward to that.

BTW anybody the slightest idea whether we're talking this side of Christmas? (this Christmas!!)

Probably too early to call yet.  We are really just at the early stages of beta, although its going well from what I've seen so far.

Tarbet,

Do you still have the opportunity to choose the destination path of the update?
