To customize the AeroBox, you need to connect this USB stick to your computer (under windows operating system).

When you start the software, you will get a menu with following items:

  • Clé USB
  • Bibliothèque des vols
  • Autre répertoire

Choose the first item "Clé USB" (USB key). Then you got another menu with:

  • Dépouillement d'un vol
  • Programmation de base de l'Aérobox
  • Programmation avancée de l'Aérobox
  • Statistiques sur les vols du répertoire

If the SIM card provider is among following french providers:

  • Bouygues
  • Orange
  • SFR

You just have to select the right one in the "Opérateur" selector.

Frequency configuration

Choose the item "Programmation de base de l'Aérobox".

On the next page, you see 3 fields:

  1. The first field is unused
  2. "Intervalle de rafraîchissement sur le site internet"
  3. "Intervalle de mesure de la position GPS"

The second field enables you to set the interval time between two items of data to OpenFlyers server (and so the refresh interval time on the RadarWeb page). We do not recommend to set "5s" because of the data size saturation due to the GSM network.

The third field enables you to set the interval time between two GPS position record in memory and in the USB stick.

Do not forget to click on the "Enregistrer" button to save configuration.

Data sending process throw GSM network

If the GSM swith is ON, the AeroBox will try to find a GSM network.

Once the the connexion is established, the "GSM" led lights every X seconds according to the "Intervalle de rafraîchissement sur le site internet" field configuration.

The AeroBox will send all positions stored in memory since last sending process.

Example: if the AeroBox send a data every 20 seconds and the recording interval time is set to 10 seconds, then the AeroBox will send the last 2 positions.

When the AeroBox is unable to send a position due to a GSM lack of coverage or data saturation on the network, it will try again until it successes.
