    RadarBox24.com

    Anyone used it yet/got it ? Looks good , obviously not free despite the wording ( usual 30 day expiry thing) . If you did buy it how much was it ?

          I only ever use it on a PC, I'm a tight Yorkshire man that won't have a smart phone due to the cost, what are these new fangled apps any way?

            Great as an app , gives you most features you see on PC, plus on a smart phone you can use the camera to point at an aircraft and if you have GPS switched on you can pick up all the data about it - reg included . Pretty trick actually! The app is the same price as well .

            Must admit though I do like the PC version for browsing and monitoring , great on the eye and you can see far more . Cheers for that

              radarbox24 and flightradar24 both use data from ADS-B receivers set up by volunteers, as a result, coverage in the third world is sparse. Flightradar has an interesting feature called cockpit view which works in conjunction with google earth. You can only see aircraft which are equipped with ADS-B, mainly modern airliners.
