Try the following settings ;)

AircraftList.json Url: http://127.0.0.1/VirtualRadar/AircraftList.json

Radar URL for emails: http://127.0.0.1/VirtualRadar/AircraftList.json

There is no port needed for PlaneAlerter , because it can communicate with your radar directly from json file and not from online website ;)

I've got this little programme running very well on Windows 10 and have so for about 10 days with no issues. The flexibility of the conditions setting meets most of my needs and has been alerting me pretty good to date.

If there is just one thing I would like modified and that would be setting the distance condition from kilometres to nautical miles since all flights in the western world measure distances in nm. All my #avgeek life I've talked nautical miles so would it be possible to either have an option or to use nautical miles as the standard.

What does everyone think?

Checking in with some troubleshooting help just in case anyone else is facing the same issue I just fixed.

My VRS map was functioning fine when I'd visit on my phone, however my PlaneAlerter emails had no map, instead they contained an error with the URL g.co/staticmaperror/key.

The issue (it appears) was me not checking the box in VRS to "Use Google Maps API key with local requests". I'm guessing PlaneAlerter sends the local map at the instant it matches an alert condition. With my local map erroring out, I was getting the error.

I may have spoken too soon. Still getting the grey map quite often.

Those urls result an error

however http://127.0.0.1:1236/VirtualRadar/AircraftList.json

correctly shows the contents of the json file, however I still can not get PlaneAlerter to work

NOT

Hi

The default settings for PlaneAlerter have worked for me .

I suspect its the http://127.0.0.1:1236/VirtualRadar/AircraftList.json bit thats confusing the software.

Have you tried deleting 1236 and using the default ?

AircraftList.json Url: http://127.0.0.1/VirtualRadar/AircraftList.json

Radar URL for emails: http://127.0.0.1/VirtualRadar/

I would have to reinstall vrs and use default port?
