Update rate

#1
Hi all, just wondering, is there a way of increasing the update rate? My reason for asking is that even with animate running I find that when tracking flights into and out off airports (seems to happen with all but I mainly track Heathrow) is that when the they get within a certain radius the data stops and the icons stop running smoothly and start backing up on the map which is very messy and irritating , it seems to start updating every 12ish seconds which suggests it has the information but doesn't display it, any suggestions?

Are the planes disappearing below your horizon?
I live within 10 miles of Heathrow and loose most planes around 300 ft
If you are close to the airport then probably heightening your antenna may be the simplest solution.

Hi , I'm talking about viewing on the map and using aviation charts to monitor not the AR mode and Minot using any antenna just data on an iPhone and iPad or PC

But the maps depend on stations like mine feeding the source data. I have no idea how many have a clear view of aircraft on the ground. There will particular problems with locations from MLAT data.

Hi , yes I know I depend on data from good people like yourself for data (unfortunately I don't think my location would benefit anyone and I have no way of running an antenna to the middle of my house ) But hopefully in time this might be possible unfortunately I get better coverage from ground movement on fr24 ......,..
