Re: Link to FlightAware

Thanks for the suggestion! I expanded it a bit to use the callsign first, then the registration. It also tries to fix callsigns that don't have the operator code prefix (like WestJet): if((aircraft.Call != null && aircraft.Call != "") || (aircraft.Reg != null && aircraft.Reg != "")) { if(aircraft.Re...

Re: Range Rings on Map

This is a bit cleaner for anyone trying it out: if(mLocation !== null) { mMarker.setPosition(mLocation.getGoogleLatLng()); if(mLocation.getEnabled()) mMarker.setMap(mMap); //begin range rings var rangeRing=[50,100,150,200,250,300]; var circle; for (i=0;i<rangeRing.length;i++) { ringColor = (i%2==0) ...

Re: Range Rings on Map

I thought I'd go ahead and try to figure this out and I was able to add range rings to the map. I'm sure there is a better way to implement this! I modified GoogleMapCurrentLocation.js and changed the code in the GoogleMapCurrentLocationUI function to: if(mLocation !== null) { mMarker.setPosition(mL...

Not Finding Routes

I am currently watching callsign "ACA016" with "Route: Unknown" on my VRS. I went to the website to add "ACA016" and see that it does not exist (as expected). But I also checked "ACA16", which does exist. Is the expectation that routes should be double-entered in cases like this, or should there be ...

Range Rings on Map

It would be handy to be able to add range rings onto the map. Google Maps makes this quite easy with the Circle class:

That's true. It would be nice to have a quick link when just viewing the map, too.

Higher res airplane icons

When viewing VRS on a higher res display (e.g. Retina display on iPhone or iPad), the airplane icons and text on the map seem to suffer from " jaggies " (more so than on a regular display). I wonder if this is because of the resolution at which those images are being generated? Is there any way in ....

Link to FlightAware

When viewing the details of a flight, the current links are: www.airliners.net :: www.airframes.org Would it be possible to add a link to FlightAware based on the callsign? In the case of flights without the operator code, this would need to be appended (like with the routes). For example, Westjet w...
