Alarm goes off by itself!??

Hi Folks,

Using 3.3.604 since it has come out. All fine.
Then a few minutes ago I start it and the alarm goes off!
I havent dragged.
My AIS is set to have NO alarm at the moment as I am anchored.

Why has it gone off? Why cant I turn it off?

I have deleted my Anchor Watch

Yesterday there was a DSC alarm that another boat heard but didnt sound on my VHF radio.

All I can think is maybe its an AIS text alarm? But I cant see any text etc.

I will reload the program.... butt here *must* have been a reason, and why cant I shut the alarm off???????????


Mark

Swim for shore before its too late.

There was a bug around there in 2.5.0, maybe it is still there...

I reported a similar thing in 2011: cf. my post http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/showthread.php?p=774828 and next reply. Seems a rare case, though.

So, if you swim back, you might want to check the .ini file

Mark...
3.3.604 has known (and fixed for the next 3.3 beta) problems in navobjects handling, which was rewritten for performance. All I can say it's not recommended to use it in "production" environment...

They are NOT scribbles or Doodles! Thats art and they show I am a significantly creative person, sensitive, caring and full of love and fuller of beer.
