Hi Dave,

I manually update my db but it seems to be a never ending time consuming task. I would be interested in any utility that you may have to make the job easier.

Thanks
Everything about Airnav is fantastic. Airnav can do no wrong. Airnav is perfect. Airnav is divine.

The two utilities I know of (Aerodata and ADU) require a subscription to their databases.

The utility I'm referring to (see above screenshots) isn't planned to be chargeable.

Dave - I would very much like to obtain a copy of your Utility as the ANRB update process is very cumbersome and slow. With AirNav using a photographic site to update a DB, (what logic!), my ANRB DB is constantly being corrupted with erroneous data. Yesterday I got an Air Canada DC-8 come up, a couple of weeks ago, it was an AC L-1011 - both long, long gone from the fleet. Those standout easliy but there are many biz and others which are less obvious; at an airport I can see from my Aerodata Analyser, (and confirm with my eyes), that the type that ANRB shows is in a fact a completely different type of aircraft, quite common with bizjets, but how much else is slipping through.

I'm currently working on an additional facility to keep a transaction log of updates made by users.

The idea is that if and when the AirNav server overwrites your painstaking updates with incorrect, out-of-date or plain blank information (see www.airnavsystems.com/forum/index.php?topic=4602.0) then you will have the ability to re-apply your updates with a single mouse-click.

Yes, I know it shouldn't be necessary, but we have to work with the current system until such time as a more intelligent server update architecture is implemented.

Well it's been overtaken by events, in particular by AirNav's promise of an imminent update to the server architecture that will see an end to users' updates being overwritten without asking.

I don't know what stage that's at, but I would guess it will be released soon:

We have stated clearly more than once that we are looking into this and will have news soon.
