I've unchecked the option to send analytical data, but even if I have no network connection, I always get errors saying that host google-analytics (or very similar) cannot be resolved. Resolving google-analytics every time I start the application is also some kind of tracking. (Despite of that X-Plane tries to connect to every time the application starts. That's enough tracking already)

IF you are using Digital version it will from time to time connect to auth server to activate the key and unlock the full features.

Hi there! I'm Tyler, one of the X-Plane developers.

Can you please attach both a screenshot of your Settings > General tab, and your "X-Plane Analytics.prf" file (found in X-Plane\Output\preferences)? I'm unable to reproduce this in the lab. (Note that you can take a screenshot from within X-Plane by hitting Shift+Space, and it will appear in your Output directory.)

ice_pdb (above) is correct regarding connecting to X-Plane servers. If you're using the digital download, X-Plane will periodically connect to our servers to ensure your product key isn't being used on a bajillion machines across the Internet. Likewise, X-Plane automatically connects to the web to check for updates. Neither of these are optional.

Pretty pleased to know about the Google analytics and applications. Best thing about Adwords Campaign Management are their huge connections with traffic all over the Google. They work according to the nature of business. Also successful leads are for long term. My friend hired them couple of months back and enjoying higher sales graph.
