Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

GE2KAP.V26.0.0.3

I decided to create a new version because I discovered a bug that affects the accuracy of quilted charts created from the SasPlanet cache. Most users wouldn't have the conditions to trigger it but just in case.

The version fixes:
- the Check for Updates button if your default browser is Microsoft Edge.
- Inaccurate quilted charts created from SasPlanet cache if the first tile is not in the cache.

Also, I have removed the Quilting.rex utility as it doesn't work.

You can get the new version from the Downloads page of my website:
Sample or by pressing the Check For Updates button on the Options (unless you are using Microsoft Edge)

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

GE2KAP.V27.0.0.0
Just created a new version that fixes a few problem and enhances an existing feature. The problems fixed are:
- Creating charts from GE sometimes creates a chart before its completed downloading which causes blurry charts.
- Problems with GE Pro. Unable to do typing test, GE overlays, not recognizing status bar.
- Predicted number of charts not the same as the actual produced.

The enhanced feature is for charts created for Paths/Polyons/Tiling from SasPlanet using the cache. Previously only quilted charts used the cache, now unquilted ones use it too.
You can download the new version using the "Check For Updates" button on the options panel or get it from the Downloads page of my website: Sample

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

It looks like GE2KAP.V27.0.0.0 is a bust. I have deleted it. If you have already installed it you can fix it by getting a new GE2KAP.rex file from the following link and replacing the one in the C:\GE2KAP\GE2KAP.V27.0.0 directory. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0uz6umknrq...E2KAP.rex?dl=0

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

'm afraid I have some bad news for users of Google earth Pro. The latest version 7.3.1.4505 if you installed it or if it was automatically updated to that level (it happens without you knowing about it) will do the following: Uninstall any old versions including Google Earth without informing you and it also will turn off the API that GE2KAP uses and my Fix_GE_API does not turn it back on So essentially you have to use the old version of Google earth but you must uninstall Google Earth Pro first. You can get the old version here: http://gdayii.ca/Downloads/googleear...1.2.2041.1.exe

The writing is on the wall: start using SasPlanet

My SASPlanet does not give me very good Google Earth coverage any more, just like Nokia! I'm now restricted to using Bing or ESRI.

Try modifying the following file (see pic)

Ref
https://bitbucket.org/sas_team/sas.m...86a326f3bd598e

PS It is also worthwhile to install a recent nightly build
http://www.sasgis.org/programs/sasplanet/nightly.php
and
- the latest SASplusmaps folder
https://bitbucket.org/sas_team/sas.plus.maps/downloads
- the latest sasmaps folder
https://bitbucket.org/sas_team/sas.maps/downloads
in place of older ones
(no need to rename, SASPlanet accepts the longer names)

I have no problem with GE or the Navionics charts

Thanks very much for this.

Have not found the first file to modify but will keep looking.

A question that I should know the answer but don't.

Should the Nightly be installed over/into the existing SAS Planet folder?

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

I believe the answer to that is yes. Let me know if that works for you.

Seems to work OK though had to delete a file that had the same GUI as another one.

Frustrating thing is that Venture Further creates charts from Nokia!
