Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Plane Finder AR and Plane Finder?
Plane Finder AR is our augmented reality app that shares the data available in Plane Finder- our original iPhone App. Plane Finder provides a near real time virtual radar view of flight from across the world and include a great deal more detail that Plane Finder AR. All Plane Finder apps share common ADS-B data.
Why can't I see all planes?
Aircraft must be carrying ADS-B equipment and we must have a feed in the area. (In the US airlines have been slow to adopt the technology but usage is continuing to rise).
What if my area isn’t covered?
We are always on the lookout for more data feeds. Check back regularly to see if we have added your area. You could even help us by running a free receiver!
If I have an ADS-B receiver can I share my data for use with Plane Finder AR?
Yes. Please contact [email protected] and we will assist.
