Well thanks sailorF54. Did you use SasPlanet to create the chart?

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

I think I can modify GE2KAP to automatically create a chart from SasPlanet. Is anyone interested to test it?

Yep...
Been using SASPlanet for a long time now, to compare GE sat views with Bing, Yandex ...
Never realized I could use the .kml facility...
I got a round of applause this morning on the French Forum Hisse et Ho after disclosing your way of doing it.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Paul

First I want to say what a GREAT tool the GE2KAP is! It has really added another whole level of navigation for us. We have been using it for the past couple of years and can't imagine going anywhere without it.

I have tried to download your latest update version but the link on your website appears to be broken. Is there another location that I should be using for updating my current version?

Thank You

Chuck

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

NEW VERSION of GE2KAP

I just uploaded a new version that adds support for SasPlanet.

You can get the new version from my website: Sample then go to the Downloads page and click on GE2KAP.V15.0.2.0

SasPlanet provides a great many sources of charts: including GE, Bing, Navionics and many more. After displaying a chart on SasPlanet, on GE2KAP select sasplanet from the Overlay pulldown, give the chart a name press Create Chart. This will overlay the SasPlanet chart on Goole earth then create a new chart. If you just want a chart without overlaying on GE then check the "Create chart from overlay. Do not use Google Earth" before pressing "Create Chart".


Merry XMAS

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Paul

GE2KAP.V15.0.2.0 runs fine

Now I was wondering if you could possibly modify GE2KAP to overlay two chartlets extracted from SASPlanet e.g. Navionics and Bing, or overlay CM93 chartlets with Bing...
That would at last break GE monopoly (Bing sat views are better at times)

Does that mean it is impossible, or that it is too much hassle (e.g. rewriting GE2KAP completely) ?
