Thanks for making this plugin. Its pretty extraordinary to think how many different website download problems were solved
by Pavel and Dan to simplify the installation
and update of free ENC
and RNC charts for all of us.
Suggestion: Have a good connection and install each Chart catalog that you want and then download the chart files first, before enabling the "Update All" button! -It is a pretty intensive download situation so take it slowly and one catalog at a time the first time around.
As Dan said, it is surprising how often charts get updated, so this plugin will be a great assistant with updates.
Using downloaded Win Opencpn v4.0 with the ChartDownloader v1.0 I've tested
- USCG01,05,07 both ENC and RNC
- All other non- US catalogs
Both individually and with the "Update All" several times to complete. (I needed to skip the German Inland charts about 17 times as they would keep coming up, should be expected because this is manual.)
The two Netherland_Inland catalog files seem to time out, but the website might be updating and unavailable.
The German_Inland the catalog updated but about 8 of the manually downloaded from automatic links ended in error (I will send this list separately). Also 3 others started download but were timed out for some reason.
I tried all these problem German files all several or 3x's and only one more (of the 3) came down. It seems to be something with the website as my internet
Everything else worked very well.
Thanks again for your efforts Pavel and Dan. Very nice plugin, geared to help the beginner find charts! -- and help us all update.
