Any Flight Tracker That Shows Flights Africa/Asia?

Wed Nov 23, 2005 6:32 am

Is there any flight tracker out there that displays flights where Air Nav Live Flight Tracker 6 doesn't? I never see flights over South America, Africa, or Asia on that thing.

My flight tracker widget shows flight information from around the world. The widget is standard on Mac OS X 10.4.

It's not as detailed a most, but does give you a lot of info, including position, speed, altitude, departure and arrival times.

Sorry for my ignorance, I am quite new at this game.
I operate on Mac OS X 10.4. What is the widget and how do I access it?

Many thanks!

I have that one too but it is very primitive

Skyhigh, you need to have a program called "dashboard" installed. If you don't have it, you can buy it on apple's webpage, but it came with my computer. (I have a Mac Mini)

Please excuse my ignorance but are these Flight Trackers free?

Or is an annual / monthly fee payable?

Thanks!

the good ones cost money... I can not use it anymore because I hate paying a monthly payment or even annually. I like paying once, and then be able to use the product as much as I want.

I think airnav systems are the best ones:

But as I said, I am not happy about having to pay every 6 months or so, so I don't think I will subscribe again

You may think the airnav ones are the best but by saying that you are merely contradicting yourself as the airnav package is for so many minutes usage and not infinite use.

No I am not.. I think the program is great.. I just prefer paying one single amount of money instead of having to pay and pay and pay every month even though it is small amounts

Hi all: like with anything else if you want high quality you have to pay. I personally use www.airnavsystems.com and it is simply great. And it costs the same as the competiotn but gives you 60 hours/month instead of 10 hours per month like the others.

And with them you can associate HF tracking with ACARS, etc etc.
Have a look at:
