FlightAware Discussions

Planeplotter Device already registered.

I’ve been running RTL1090 and a purchased copy of Planeplotter for a little while not from a site somewhat East of KMHR. I noted a sudden increase in observed traffic and discovered I had turned sharing on (download only). I decided to contribute what little I can, enabled upload and tried to register my copy with the PP code on ‘xm’ as shown under options/sharing/setup.

Registration choked with a message “This device has already been registered by another party.”.
Did not find an entry for myself in stats page.

Willing to entertain suggestions.

There’s always the possibility that sharer “xM” has registered the wrong code. There ought to be some tie-up with the code to the approximate location as published at coaa.co.uk/sharerlocations.php when registering on FlightAware otherwise people can stick in any old code :frowning:

Another possibility code “xm” was used by a sharer in Arizona until 27 October so maybe they registered the code initially.
Codes change in Planeplotter after 30 days non-use.
