30 days is fine … but … my ‘unused’ version accidentally sent FlightAware a few packets last week. I guess this means the 30 day counter got reset. If we could request that a unused code be removed from the database, accidental packets wouldn’t be accepted by FlightAware instead of resetting the counter and having to wait another thirty days for it to die.
I now do use the original version of PlanePlotter locally on my main computer, better speed and graphics quality; there is always the possibility it might accidently be allowed to upload…
This all started when I attempted a Windows 8.1 update which failed and PlanePlotter no longer started so I moved to an old NoteBook as my ADS-B collector. It’s also easier to keep it running uninterrupted 7/24. The initial problem turned out to be fixable with the Registry fixer program in the main PlanePlotter directory but at the time I wasn’t aware of it so I switched computers as a ‘easier’ and hopefully better fix in the long run.
