AirNav took data from my Radar Box 3D without permission
« on: December 16, 2012, 06:22:07 AM »
I didn't renew my subscription for World Wide RadarBox 3D Data Access when my 1 year free subscription that came with the RadarBox expired.

The next day, AirNav cut me off from the Network - fair enough - you get what you pay for. If you don't pay, you don't get it.

It doesn't bothers me because I have other sources of data access.

But, today I made a Shocking discovery -

- AirNav took Data from my RadarBox 3D without my permission to feed into RadarBox24.com.

Today, I turned on Radarbox24.com and found there is not a single plane around Singapore WSSS FIR - even though I can see planes from my room window.

I decided to launch my AirNav Radarbox 3D program and saw planes around WSSS FIR on my screen.

When I switched over to RadarBox24.com screen -

Wow !

Just like David Copperfield, I saw RadarBox24.com screen populated with planes similar to those on my AirNav RadarBox 3D screen.

I thought my eye were doing tricks on me -

So, I turned OFF my Radarbox 3D program - all the planes disappeared from RadarBox24.com screen.

I turned ON & OFF my Radarbox 3D program a couple of times - and confirmed these data are from my Box.

Hello - guys from AirNav - you are not being fair to me -

1). You decided NOT to give me a FREE Box - fair enough - I have already purchased my own Box.

2). You decided NOT to give me a free Antenna - fair enough - you don't make the antenna and it cost more than the box.

3). You decided to CUT me OFF the world wide Data network - fair enough - because I didn't pay for it.

But, taking data from my BOX without my permission to feed the World Wide Network of RadarBox24.com -
 
- is NOT fair to me.

In the radarbox tab in preferences untick 'share flight data'. That will stop your data being sent to airnav.

You will need to untick this each time you start radarbox as it will not remember this setting.
This lack of 'memory' has been discussed millions of times in various threads and is just the way it is (for now anyway..). There is no point in getting into a debate about it again!

Personally my free year ran out a while ago, but I don't really have a problem still sharing, it means if I'm out I can still see whats on my receiver by looking at radarbox24.com.

Hope that helps,
Mike

He knows all about it as he has mentioned it on other threads, just a guy who needs to get noticed.

This thread is being locked, as mentioned the details have been mentioned lots of time on the forum and he just wants to push his own agenda.
