Re: Compass Deviation Plugin future requests.

Rick
Some work to do. Saving of the data is suposed to be done in the same directory as the config / log files. So a bug. Also deviation can't by definition never be outside the -180 +180 degr. Another bug. The popup warnings for for no root element etc are only the first time as long there is no data file written yet.

Re: Compass Deviation Plugin future requests.

Dirk, Also I don't believe the data saves yet for the reasons you gave.

Re: Compass Deviation Plugin future requests.

The browser just crashed so I have to write this again.
Downloaded and tested with v4.8.0

In the beginning there is a wayward error you know about.
Entered deviations and tried to save, there was a message not enough entered.
Entered more, then I did something like "Show" and it crashed (I had not saved it!)

Started over, entered a bunch and then closed and the file was saved OK.
Opened it and the deviations I had entered were there. During this process I got one message about the file, see screenshot.

Then tried Print Screen and it works too, see screenshot.

It seems to be working better, just a few little items left I think for this stage.

Hello,

A new item in Tracker/Flyspray (pi - deviation) has been created for this plugin.

Re: Compass Deviation Plugin future requests.

Have done some testing and made reports under github issues.
There are some minor issues with editing, please add to and identify these.
There are occasions when the plugin will crash OpenCPN, please note what you were doing and submit the tail end (bottom) of the log.
However the plugin appears to be working and is usable.

Please test this and report errors, bugs and crashes to

Re: Compass Deviation Plugin

What is the difference between Compass "Deviation" and Magnetic "Declination" (WMM)?

Old stone walls record history of Earth’s magnetic wanderings
Very interesting article, showing one good use for lidar. This shows why the World Magnetic Model plugin (WMM_pi) needs to be updated.

Create a Deviation Table for your Compass
You could try out Dirk's "Deviation" Plugin under Beta with Opencpn 4.99.

Re: Compass Deviation Plugin future requests.

Hi,

downloaded the code and build it from source for a raspberry Pi 3b+ and Stretch.

The plugin works but every time when editing the devitation table and leaving it oc crashes -it just closed and I´m on the normal Desktop. Restarting OC then and all is running again.

Shoud the plugin sends true heading tuo OC? My doesen´t do this (Checkbox is activated )

Regards

Andreas

Re: Compass Deviation Plugin future requests.

Andreas, in Windows that was not a problem for some reason. I am surprized you're having this problem because Dirk uses Linux.
Nevertheless, lets hope he sees your post.
