    Flight Tracking Software

    Advertisement



    I feel so inadequate when it comes to Blackberry as my history is with Palm.

    Is there a flight tracking software program other than the 411 plug-in or World Mate that is available for Blackberry (curve)?

    My wife works for the airlines, so I am constantly picking up & dropping off at the airport. Palm had "Flight Tracker" that gives you a text readout and separate graphical map of current flight location, altitude, arrival time and any delays. I am trying to find a Blackberry version of this type of program that won't cost me more than $30.00 (can't justify paying for World Mate just for this feature). Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

    I think Maufait has flight tracking and is free. But I don't know how well it works.

    Maufait is just like 411 (see above request). It is not what I am looking for.

    Re: Flight Tracking Software

    Seeing I drive a livery vehicle I have a need to meet invoming flights all the time and have been using Flightstats for a few weeks now. I find the information more acurate then what the Port Authority is providing on the Flight screens.

    Flightstats has both a desktop and a mobile site. If you register (free) on the desktop site you can set alerts up for departure and arrival information to be sent to your phone.

    Try Flight Stats we have it on the main page of BBerryOne http://www.bberryone.com/ . Flight Stats I believe is one of the sources that WorldMate is using, also World Mate is beta testing a new version called WorldMate Live so you could sign up for that in the mean time, there is no cost for the moment in the beta version.

    Re: Flight Tracking Software

    Send an email to the following address: marketing@mobimate.com and request an invitation. I explained that I travel alot on business which I do and they sent one to me. Unfortunately I sent out all my invites to handfull of colleagues.

    Although I appreciate the responses, I am receiving answers that I said I didn't want. See my post : Is there a flight tracking software program other than the 411 plug-in or World Mate

    Re: Flight Tracking Software

    I post again....Although I appreciate the responses, I am receiving answers that I said I didn't want. See my post : Is there a flight tracking software program other than the 411 plug-in or World Mate?

    I am NOT interested in World Mate, so it doesn't matter if it is by invite or not. I am not paying $75.00/year to track a flight. Unless anyone KNOWS of a specific program for Blackberry, like Palm's Flight Tracker program, I can just goto the airline's website for updated information.

    I hope people will remain mature and not flame my posting. To those that have tried to help, I thank you.

    UPDATE: Pocket Express latest edition (Elite) offers realtime flight information and travel as well as their standard news, sports, weather etc. If anyone else was looking for something like myself, it works. Thank you to those who tried to help.
