We are looking into the database updates, with sites providing up to date information and customers.

However you mention the database as if its a easy task. This product like ACARS Decoder works world wide therefore there is going to be millions of routes and flight information, thousands of aircraft details which are changing daily.

In the case of the mode s database these sometimes have to be linked up visually and hence cannot be done by one company alone. It needs to have users helping. In the case of the acars database as well, we cannot continually update and the database and find out about changes otherwise the cost of the software would spiral out of control.

Hope that makes sense.

It all makes sense, trust me I know how hard it is to keep up to date. I have my own database using Microsoft Access, that I update monthly, taking about 2 days in total and this doesn't cover every type and no Mode S codes (if they'd been around when I started the database 10 years ago it would, I just might start doing it :-) )

To tell you the truth, flight numbers and routes don't bother me that much, it's more the Mode-S tie ups to frames.

Great - so you remove my post because it is not as you like and you PM me to say you will not have posts you not like. I can expect this when I ask for support and you do not have answers - or maybe you remove this post as well ?

Your post was nothing to do with RadarBox as mentioned in the rules and hence was removed plus it was deliberate to start trouble. There was also no question in your post.

You can email support with anything you like however on the forum there is rules that you must abide to as anything your post is on our site is in the public domain we would be liable for as we are hosting the servers.

As you can see from this topic itself we are happy to discuss your question. However there rules that if broken then the post will be removed.
