Re: Help / FAQ

Thanks Nohal. I found it in one of the threads you posted for someone else.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)

This is what fixed it.

Re: Help / FAQ

Maybe this could be added under supplementary software on the OpenCPN website...

Re: Help / FAQ

What would be the appropriate editor to use for the s57data\S52RAZDS.RLE file (linux editor)?

Re: Help / FAQ

HotRod,
it's basically a text file, so VI is ok
But as the structure is a bit complicated to hand-edit, I've written a GUI editor for it, which runs under Linux (that it runs is the only thing I actually tested)
You can get it at OpenCPN - Rasterization Rules Editor - Redmine
If you have any problems, let me know - it should be possible to solve them.

If you plan to do some contribution in this area, let us know as it's a bit hard to merge the changes if they are not coordinated properly. (Not that there's much happening with the rules right now...)

Also have a look at What Are the Objects that Display . . . to find probably the most interesting discussion regarding this subject.

Re: Help / FAQ

I was just tweaking the colors of cm93 charts a bit.
Tried to run the editor on Ubuntu, but that was a no go...
Ran mono RleEditor.exe, but that gave me a lot of warnings... Assembly not found in Global Assembly Cache....

Tried open this S52RAZDS.RLE file on windows 7 with notepad2 but got some weird stuff in there... But With ordinary Notepad it opened normaly...
Same with VI in ubuntu... strange artifacts in the file... There seems to be a strange line ending...

Re: Help / FAQ

HotRod...
You have to be a bit more specific with the errors so I can tell you what's up. I really just ran it on SuSE for about 1 minute a long time ago. Don't remember much... but can have a look as I have an Ubuntu machine here.
If you have a Win7 machine, why don't you just run RleEditor there?
Be careful with those "weird characters" while editing manually - they HAVE to be there... So with Notepad it most likely opened wrong.

Re: Help / FAQ

I am running OpenCPN on a Dell E1505 laptop under Windows 7. OpenCPN receives gps data from a Garmin 441s chartplotter via USB/serial adapter. It reads ais data from a Standard Horizon gx2150 VHF radio via another USB/serial adapter. Now I wish to also read NMEA 0183 data from my Raymarine SeaTalk1 network that would include depth, boat speed, water temp, etc. What are my options? I know that the toolbox has provisions for only two COM ports which I'm already using. I could purchase a multiplexer and integrate the gps data and Raymarine NMEA data onto a single COM port, but I don' wish to incur that complexity nor expense. I'm wondering if there is some type of software multiplexer that will integrate the sentences from two COM ports onto one virtual COM port which then feeds OpenCPN? Suggestions please.
Pete

Re: Help / FAQ

I have another issue. As background, I am running OpenCPN on a Dell E1505 laptop under Windows 7. OpenCPN receives gps data from a Garmin 441s chartplotter via USB/serial adapter. I wish to upload routes from laptop to the Garmin chartplotter. OpenCPN tells me that the upload was successful, but when I go to the Garmin, it received only the individual waypoints. It has no route. How do I get it to treat the upload as a route not individual waypoints? Thanks
Pete

Re: Help / FAQ

Prroots:Have you tried these?You likely have -they pop up at various times here...but it's possible you missed em..
I don't have all the equipage you do so I don't know.They're just outstanding possibilities that others might suggest if I don't!
Totally Free...
This one can combine inputs..
Eterlogic - VSPE: tool for serial ports emulation

This one can convert tracks or waypoints from one format to another.
GPSBabel: convert, upload, download data from GPS and Map programs
It sometimes works perfectly,sometimes not perfectly.There's a forum that might specifically answer...

Thanks, I'll investigate both

I've started looking at gpsBable. OpenCPN creates a file with extension gpx. I believe the Garmin wants a file with extension adm. Any hints on which formats to use in gpsBable?

Re: Help / FAQ

prroots....

Try this: in Toolbox->GPS, select checkbox:

"Use Garmin GRMN/GRMN (Host) Mode for Waypoint and Route uploads."

Thanks
Dave

I had tried that originally. It gives an error and says to check log file:
Quote:
8:24:14 PM: EnumerateSerialPorts() Found Garmin USB Driver.
8:24:17 PM: ClosePD: 304, count_after_close = 0 for COM7
8:24:18 PM: and so CloseComPortPhysical
8:24:20 PM: Garmin GPS could not be initialized on port: COM7 Error Code is -1
LastGarminError is: Get_Time: Unknown date/time protocol
8:24:20 PM: OpenPD: 304, new_count = 1 for COM7
8:24:24 PM: Initializing Chart D:\Charts\CM93_May2009_Zone_8\CM93\00300000\A\0030 0000.A
8:24:24 PM: CM93Composite Chart Root is D:\Charts\CM93_May2009_Zone_8\CM93\
When I uncheck the box, it uploads successfully, but at the Garmin it shows up only as individual waypoints, not a route.

Re: Help / FAQ

Pete...

Thanks for the log info.

OpenCPN must use GRMN Host mode for route uploads to Garmin devices, otherwise you just get isolated waypoints, as you have discovered.

We had this problem earlier, but thought resolved. Could be a Win7 issue?

I will investigate with my old steam-powered GPS18 on XP. This may not be conclusive.....

Anyone else using GRMN host mode on Win7?

Thanks
Dave
