Planeplotter


#1

Hey guys,

first of all a happy new year!

Do you know why planeplotter don’t give me a sharer code? It worked till yesterday but I’m getting this alert when I will start the sharing:

WARNING - TIME EXTENDS BEYOND MODEL 5-YEAR LIFE SPAN CONTACT NGDC FOR PRODUCT UPDATES:
National Geophysical Data Center

I want to upload data to flightaware but it doesn’t work. Have you any ideas what I can do?

Kind regards,
Mike

Looks like PlanePlotter needs a updated magnetic field model (no really! Apparently the one they use expires in 2015) - you should talk to COAA about that.

Hi,

I have the same issue and error message.

But now the software is sharing data and FlightAware is receiving the data.

Is your PP sharing data at the moment?

I replaced the old WMM.COF (World Magnetic Model coefficient file) in the Planeplotter folder with the 2015 version from the following NGDC website

           [ngdc.noaa.gov/geomag/WMM/soft.shtml](http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomag/WMM/soft.shtml)

Planeplotter no longer issues the Warning about the model 5-yr life span. However, have not tested this other than with simple ADSB logging.
