i hope this will fix the problem with the time.
i can't reproduce the bug you explained before.

i set also set the depth to "-----" when the checksum of the NMEA-sentence in invalid.

Got it. Thanks!

I will test both items over the next 2 days and let you know as we will be sailing.

The time thing seems to work now, on .906. I played around a lot with changing the time to UTC, changing it back to local, creating a New log. Not sure what combination of things "fixed" it.

I will let you know what I find in the next day or so. Also will capture Depth data in case the checksum is not the correct way to check for depth not available.

Thanks for the update!

One other thing I have just noticed while at anchor. The Wind value you are entering on the Weather tab seems to be angle relative to the boat, not the actual true wind direction

So, if I am facing 90 deg (at anchor, so wind is 90 also), the wind angle is gets entered is 2 deg, 355 deg, etc, as the boat swings back and forth. It should be entering the actual wind direction of 90. I assume to calculate this is the True Wind Relative to Boat and adjusted with the Heading value and this should result in the actual wind direction......

And one other minor thing, for COG, it should be labelled with a "T" for true.

Re: Logbook Konni for OpenCPN

konni...
Very good work!
Are you going to publish the source? So far the logbook works well for us, but the position is not recorded with the entries for some reason. I would also like to extend the engine logging with an automatic timer to count the engine-hours and fuel consumption for me.
For the code hosting, most of the OpenCPN related stuff now resides on github, which looks like working quite a bit better than sourceforge.

Thanks

Pavel

Yes, so the Linux-User also can use the logbook. I've compiled it a long time ago on linux and it works., but since that i've made a lot of changes.
When it compiles on Ubuntu 10.10 i upload the code to Github.

Hm, sounds not so good.
Because of health reasons i'am now a "drydock-sailor" without a boat, so i can't check that.
Has anybody the same problem ? please let me now.

i had the same idea, but i don' have the NMEA-sentences and i'am not sure
if the OpenCPN-Mainprogram delivers the sentences to the plugin.

thanks for your reply

I get positions every time a new line is added to the logbook (manual or times). Has always been working OK.

Much be something specific in his setup I would think.

Re: Logbook Konni for OpenCPN

Konni,

Just did two days of sailing with the log plug in, and things are working pretty well.

I was not able to check the "unknown" depth as we did not travel in water over 200 ft during our trips. I will try to test again next time we go out.

Local Time seems to be working A-OK.

One other item I did see, and this may be my opinion of how I would expect it to work, so not sure its a "bug" or not.

When I press "New Log" to start a new log (which I am doing each time we start a new trip somewhere so I have each trip in its own log file), the Total fields (Total Distance, Total Engine, Fuel, and Water) do not get reset to 0. So the numbers add across all logs.

I would think it should reset those counts each time a new log is started. If not, can there be an option to do this as I would like each log file to be its own "trip" with the numbers all being correct for that single trip.

Let me know if this makes sense, and if others disagree we can discuss further on a good solution.

Thanks again for the work, its coming along very well!

I'll add a simple Yes/No MessageBox after you've pressed the new-Log-Button,
so a skipper can decide whether or not the entry are set to zero.

in the next version you'll see a new "OverView"-Tab. it's only the grid (not working), but if there are more columns nessesary, please let me now.

thank's that you spend your time to make the plugin better.

best regards
konni

Re: Logbook Konni for OpenCPN

Hello Konni,

I am translating 0.907.

Some questions :
What do you mean by :

Beam ?

Etmal ?

Net tonnage ?

HIN_Nr ?

Yard-Nr. ?


What difference between COG and COG (T) ?

Best regards

Gilletarom.

Re: Logbook Konni for OpenCPN

Hello Hubert,

I have delete my message for this error because I have solved it.

In my french version, there was an error in line 80. I have forgotten a "\n".

Best regards

Gilletarom.

I will try to record some NMEA stream before I also return to the armchair and investigate more.

I was thinking about simply adding a button to start/stop the timer. I think that not that many people have the engine connected to the NMEA network and if they do, the sentences are highly vendor-specific.

Cheers

Pavel

Re: Logbook Konni for OpenCPN

Hello to Gilletarom and Hubert

Beam = Greatest Width of the hull

Etmal = Used here in germany, means distance in 24 hrs
I'll change this in the future, it's used in the new OverView-Tab

Net tonnage =
Net tonnage (NT) is based on a calculation of the volume of all cargo spaces of the ship. It indicates a vessel’s earning space and is a function of the moulded volume of all cargo spaces of the ship.
(Source Wikipedia)

Perhaps it's in the Ships-Papers of someone

HIN_Nr = Hull Indentification No.

Yard-Nr. = Marina-No. or No. of Berth

What difference between COG and COG (T) ?
For me it's equal, there's only a (T)rue COG

best reagrds
