That was quick.

I am able to build several of the plugins but not BR24radar_pi.

It gives me link errors. The first is this one:
jsonreader.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: virtual void __thiscall PlugInChartBase::chartpix_to_latlong(double,double ,double *,double *)" (?chartpix_to_latlong@PlugInChartBase@@UAEXNNPAN0@ Z) [C:\Users\hasse\BR24radar_pi\build-win32\br24radar_pi.vcxproj]

Re: Navico radar plugin v2.0 released

Hans...
Are you sure that the opencpn.lib you try to link against is at least as new as what the plugin needs (If not sure, simply take one from your OpenCPN 4.4 or current master build product).
And yes, it builds, links and packages without any problems if the build environment is OK.

I have no clue what you are doing. The function "chartpix_to_latlong()" belongs to OpenCPN and is in pluginmanager.cpp. I have been told the Windows compiler needs a special opencpn file, received when compiling the main OpenCPN sources?

Gerhard

Ah, yes, Pavel explained it already...

Well, you are right that if I get the opencpn.lib from OpenCPN 4.4.0 it compiles without errors.
I had gotten the newest from the link om the github page.
4.1.602-vc120_xp

https://sourceforge.net/projects/ope...s/opencpn_lib/

with that it does not compile without errors.

Thanks Pavel

As I understand it there has been some talk of merging garmin code to the BR24 code.

I did the reverse engineering for the garmin xHD radar, rewrote Dave's code and that plugin has just been released.

Should we maybe start a separate thread discussing this mater ?

Re: Navico radar plugin v2.0 released

merrimac,

I have compiled the latest code version of today. Since I don't have this radar type I can only test in emulator mode. Can you please check the settings for seamiles or kilometers? It seems in emulator mode this setting has no effect.

Gerhard

That is correct, it has no effect in Emulator mode -- it always reports the same range. Emulator mode is maybe the wrong word, as it only presents a fixed image. It was mainly useful for developing the drawing part of the code, and giving you a sense of how the plugin behaves in general, but not 100% functionality. Sorry.

Hans, I will send you a PM with my email address. I hate CF's user interface, in particular the fact that I need to keep going back to the website to follow a thread.

Re: Navico radar plugin v2.0 released

Thanks Merrimac & Pavel (from the 14th & 15th),

I just got into network range and will try the suggestions tomorrow.

FYI I use Xubuntu 16.04, so I'm reasonably current :-)

Cheers, ....Erik.

Re: Navico radar plugin v2.0 released

We've come up with a plan on how to move the Navico code base to a point where it will be easy for other developers to take the code and implement only the code necessary for a particular radar brand, in such a way that we don't depend more on each other than necessary.

Once this code base is released and tested for Navico and Garmin it should be relatively easy for someone with good skills in examining pcap files to add support for, let's say, a Raymarine or Furuno radar.

Navico radar plugin v2.1 released

The Navico radar team is happy to announce that we've finished v2.1.

You can download the Windows and macOS versions from github.
The PPA for Ubuntu should be updated soon, depending on how busy the build systems are and when Pavel or Dave is able to kick the build off.

The release notes say:

A small bug fix and minor functionality tweaks release.

The changes are:
  • Terminology changes so that it uses as much as possible that of professional radars.
  • Heading input priority has been fixed. A GPS compass providing only true heading is now handled correctly.
  • Radar type (BR24/3G/4G) detection has been improved.
  • Width of menu is now calculated correctly.
  • Non-ASCII characters are now drawn correctly on PPI window (useful when using translations.)
  • Radar startup and shutdown phases are shown quicker and correctly.
  • Mono color mode has been removed. Multi color mode can choose all colors (3 strengths of radar echo, and a start and finish color for target trails.)
  • The options dialog has been re-formatted.
  • The options dialog is now accessible via Menu -> Advanced -> Preferences.
  • A heading line, if available, is now drawn on the PPI window.
  • Translations.
  • Bug fixes.

I just tried to enable the new v2.1 plugin using XP - direct crach when pressing the "enable plugin" button. Crash report is sent,

I haven't yet tested on my XP, it's at home, but for a double check that the file you download was build also for XP, would you mind try mine:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...-2.1-win32.exe

Re: Navico radar plugin v2.0 released

Petter5,

Did V2.0 work for you? What opencpn version are you using?

Thanks,
Kees
