With the change in google maps policy regarding api use I have added bing maps to Dump1090.

Dump1090 Mutability 1.15_1048755

I didn’t add it personally I just added my existing api key.

I did this to add the key in

cd /usr/share/dump1090-mutability/html/

sudo nano config.js

The bing maps api location is right at the bottom of the config page.

Save it with ctrl + x, and yes.

You pop the api key in right at the very bottom, it has a section for you to add it.

This is my Dump1090 Dump1090 Mutability 1.15_1048755 Dump1090 Mutability 1.15_1048755

I also added heywhatsthat panorama, I still have some more tweaks to do.

My personal favourite is the message rate at the top of the browser not visible via iPhone browser, it needs a pc to be able to view the rate.

I want to sort the clocks out next.

Does anyone know if dump1090 can handle two dongles? Or will I need to run multiple instances of Dump1090

Thanks.

A little tip I have just found out about.

If your dongle is getting overloaded then reduce the gain to -10

I did this to my Pi yesterday and been watching it since, the old saying is true I am seeing more aircraft on the map.

Sometimes less is more!
