Try IHO S-57 / ENC - Object and Attribute Catalogue and http://www.iho-ohi.net/iho_pubs/stan...I_Addendum.pdf.

I have the new and quite useless windows 7. There is no "Device Manager" and there is no way for me to determine what is connected. The control panel only asks me if I want to add a wifi connection. The Garmin is set to nmea and 4800 but the computer doesn't know it's there and there's no way I can convince it!

Evenb quicker - at least on my Windows, click on the windows round ball logo at bottom left of screen, it'll show a panel saying "search programs and files" - just type in device manager and it'll bring it up on a list. By the way Motley, I feel your pain!!

It has to be an improvement over the older and maddening Windows Vista. Which Garmin model are you using?

Thanks to friendly Teuton,Fabbian and dougwm10.

Perhaps we can attempt to tame this beastie...

Trying to use CM93 to create a transparent overlay of soundings and sea marks for use with GM2KAP.

GE2KAP

Having adjusted the vector chart tokens somewhat,this is a final .kap chart of Oslo harbour approach. The transparency degree of the overlay CM93 map is a matter of individual taste,here at the setting of 65.

I am sure the author of GE2KAP will greatly improve its facilities when he returns from his cruising holiday and thanks so far.

I am looking for a utility for Windows. MUST meet the following criteria. I have found some close, but none that do this exactly.

I want to download every link from a website. See link below. It is a directory listing of thousands of .jpgs.

Criteria:
  • Native Windows (Win7) - Command line OK.
  • Build list automatically from links on the page.
  • Download every .jpg - single threaded.
  • MUST have restart capabilities. (This will take days, if not weeks).
Command line OK, but a cool graphical interface with progress statistics would be nice.

historicalcharts.noaa.gov - /historical_jpgs/

I have plenty of disk space, so I just want to run any time I am not using my internet connection. Then, later I can browse through them and pick out the promising ones to calibrate. Also, things like this have a habit of disappearing from the web unannounced, so I figured I'd grab them all now.

Have you tried this one? Perhaps it will do?

I looked for this, but what I saw made me think it wasn't really what I wanted. Now that I look at the link you posted, I think it would do it just fine. And it may be useful in other situations. Thanks.

Now, THAT looks like EXACTLY what I want for this situation. I'll try it this evening. Thanks!

One question: Have you used it? Can you turn off the acceleration? Or tell it a maximum amount of bandwidth you want it to use? A quick scan of the FAQ didn't address either of these questions.

I typed in an edit for the above post, but the edit time elapsed while I was writing:

EDIT: It allows setting max speed. I couldn't resist and got it running. It takes a while to build a list of 22,660 links off a page. But it's now merrily downloading in the background while I am still VPNd into work. I have it set low enough where I can't tell any difference in response time for work. Thanks again.
