Hi from Lisbon
ANC (Associação Nacional de Cruzeiros) Lisbon Portugal
has carried out a trial of OpenCPN
by installing and manipulating 10 ENC
from Nazaré to Sines including Lisbon/Tagus entrance and the estuary with following permits:
, finger print and Install Permit
generated at o-charts
. Total cost 15,38 EUR.
were kindly received free from UKHO for a 3 months trial in ANC.
HW used was:
Acer Aspire Switch 11
>Intel Atom Z3745 Quad Core
1,33 GHz Memory 2 GB 64 Flash Memory
> Windows 8.1.
> Cost 233,99 EUR
version 4.2.0 with plug-in S-63 version 1.4.
Trial worked beautifully. However it has not been possible to remove the configuration of Mariner’s Standard used wiyh CM93_2011 and pan charts had to be done manually as well as inserting details like buoys, soundings, etc.
We have decided not to reload OpenCPN what might have resolved these issues at probably the expense of having to reinsert all permits and reload directory Root_ENC, what was a long process.
Tests continued with installation
of updates WK 08. UKHo application was downloaded and installed without difficulties and update concluded successfully. However WK 08 did not include any update to the charts used and so the UKHO application indicated 0 bytes downloaded.
Congratulations to OpenCPN developers!
