Hello everyone,

The latest version is 3.0.2080 and can be found here along with a change log which we will keep updated there too.

This will probably be the final beta and we will possibly block access from older versions soon as this one contains some important fixes under the hood.

Highlights of this release are...
  • MLAT now supported with Radarcape receivers
  • Fixes an issue with data coming from an upcoming FlightAware Dump1090 modification
For those who want the commands for the update it is simply..
Code:
wget http://client.planefinder.net/pfclient_3.0.2080_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i pfclient_3.0.2080_armhf.deb
A huge amount of work for this version has gone into the Radarcape version and that can be updated by the following command.
Code:
opkg install http://client.planefinder.net/pfclient_3.0.2080_armel.opk

Updated both of my RPis. Thanks for the ongoing development! Ever since updating from the old-original pfclient, these various beta versions have been running with no issues for me.

I'm having an issue with this client and the latest version of the dump1090_mutability fork (with mlat forwarding enabled). I see this message frequently:

Code:
Data too far away for 30003 data format: 671591.874193, A5E0D3
Will this be addressed in a future client update?

Yes and no!

30003 is data already decoded and in our tests we have seen a lot of decoders compromising our data quality so we don't allow aircraft that are past what the ADS-B spec defines for max range. For example that looks quite some distance away from your current location!

The "fix" for you is to switch to Beast Binary format on port 30005 from Dump1090. You will see extra information as well that you don't get from Dump1090 such as the auto pilot data.

Hi,
What about receivers provided by your team, must we update it ?? Because may be one time by week, the blue box receivers turn off, and need to unplug the RPI to have all working again.
 
#13
hi everybody
I hope I'm right here with my problem

... my first post is a little problem with plane finder client 3.0 (2080)
sometimes (see copy of log) the Client hangs ? after this error he don't reconnecting with dump1090!

Looks like networking might get a little messed up on the Pi as it's unable to resolve DNS as well from time to time. What DNS servers are set on the Pi.

Also is there any message after the one in bold. We essentially have detected no data coming from Dump1090 so have restarted our connection to it in case it was that at fault

Hmm not sure what is going on there to be honest. Sounds more like a system issue rather than then client maybe

it may be the dump1090 + Virtual Server + PFclient are not compatible in order to work combined? software use the same Port? = 30002 i forget the PlanePlotter ;-)
They should be, unless Virtual Server takes up a huge amount of resources and you are using an older Pi. It might be becoming starved of resources.
