Em-trak released a new firmware for the B100 AIS
transponder which solves the problem of unstable USB connections into OpenCPN
. One part was a new driver.
And with that update we are now able to travel at 2.231.963 knots. No bad...
What happens is that OpenCPN
finds a position of 0.0N/0.0E and integrates that into the track, sending you during some instance to the equator and back.
This under 3.1.1206, W7, and Tracking Precision at "Medium"
I'm not sure if it is a problem of the B100 or if OpenCPN does not receive the data correctly. It is the first time I'm observing this. Any one else?
The Tracking function should filter out GPS
glitches anyhow, I would suggest.
