Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Using v12.0.0.1 and ooRex 4.2.0.940 with W7U I now see the 'orientation and GPS status' window in the upper right hand corner of an overlay chart.

Is this correct? I don't recall seeing this before

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Terry,

I tried it and don't the gps status in the the chart.

On OpenCPN before you create the chart do you see the gps status? GE2KAP issues a CTRL+I to toggle the gps status off but if its already off it will turn it on. So if you don't see the gps status before you create the chart, enter CTRL+I to turn it on.

CTL+I does not work for me using OpenCPN 3.2.2 BUT it does work on 3.3.1731.

The status does not appear on a chart created using O3.3.1731

Still

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Terry,

The OpenCPN developers added the CTRL+I function to toggle the GPS status as a request from me for GE2KAP so you won't have it if you aren't at the version that has this feature.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

NEW TEST VERSION of GE2KAP

Found some more problems with V12.0.0.1 :
- the F1 field help caused a crash
- if the polygon chart created only one chart it would crash
- the filenames of Polygon/Path and the Overlay Chart were retained across restarts.

These problems are corrected in the new test version which you can get here:

Index of /Downloads use this whole link

then click on GE2KAP.V12.0.0.3.exe

Both the original link and this one are the same: "http://www.gdayii.ca/Downloads/"

And the site is still reported down.

Terry,

Can you post some images by what you mean and did this only start happening with the new version of OpenCPN?
