Hi Tony,
Still got the METAR problem here too.

Also getting the  'Invalid Data Received from Server. Update aborted' message, upon which the download stops.
On checking my data files though with R/Box running, it would seem they may be auto populating because the NavData  file - ( but not the NavData.db3 one) is constantly time updating.
Maybe someone could confirm if R/B uses the NavData file as default and that the used data is therefore always up to date.
I've attached a screen snip from a couple of minutes ago.

Regards

Syd

What did they say when you emailed them about it Ian.  I am now back so will email them direct about METER and the Navdata update.  Has anyone advised them about the update issue?

Syd,

The system uses the Navdata to show  the details of the aircraft you pick up.  If you pick up an aircraft not in the Navdata it will try the server for the data and if there will download (autopopulate) it into your Navadata.

Standard automated reply, I'm afraid :

Very helpful,

Cheers Ian, I have emailed regarding the METAR and the Navadata update issue and will advise when I get a reply.  I believe that the Update problem has been around since 22nd but thought it was just me in Mexico having the issue.

Thanks Tony,

The update is done overnight so I will check in the morning. Can however confirm autopopulate is OK as I have added a couple of Airbus deliveries this afternoon and they populated OK
