Default Mobile flight tracking plugin for Berry411

Please Login to Remove!

There is now a user contributed search plugin to track flight status using Berry411 and Flightview. Try "flight: ua007" to track flight number UA007, or "flight:" to get an overall flight congestion map of the US.

You don't have to add it in; it is part of the Berry 411 service.

I know I am not 100% retarded, in fact I think I am pretty good with this device.

I have version 3.05, no where in the plugins is anything about flight tracking. I type in flight and that does not work

please explain the steps if you can..

thanks..

Well, I installed it this morning and have it working.

I installed it over the air, started it, click the trackwheel and select "Edit Plugins"

Added Flight (it was a guess - nothing more) and then I went back, clicked the wheel and selected Flight.

Got the whole US airspace.

It isn't exactly intuitively obvious - especially since I downloaded 411 today - but it is very cool.

Default Airlines by name or code

By the way, you can now search for airlines using either the two letter code or full name (e.g. United Airlines).
