Re: Free Software of interest to OpenCpn users.

Alan,
Don't remove it. It's fine. I've posted this info under Supplimental in the User Manual.
with a link to your website.

Not here NMEA Instruments | Official OpenCPN Homepage
but here
imgkap and the kap file | Official OpenCPN Homepage
thiis sub page
Chart Conversion | Official OpenCPN Homepage

I've also suggested that Sean look at your EzWind which would be a companion to his Weatherfax_pi

Additionally I made a like for your cheap Ship Alarm here.
A cheap ship alarm system

Your how to load only the CM93 charts you need might also be useful to someone

Alan,
The developers are always interested in ways to improve the program. There are several ways to do this:
1. In the forum, under Feature Requests
2. In Tracker, (you need to register first) under
OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage
upper right tab Tracker
OpenCPN::OpenCPNAll Projects: Tasklist

Re: Free Software of interest to OpenCpn users.

Alan, It's a great little program. Are you planning to allow borders in the map calibration in the near future?

Thanks for posting it.
