This is the em-trak B100 in different outfit - so we are looking at the same issues.

.......Originally the wpts were invisible. Not so anymore, due to changes. Easy enough to fix. Just change the wpt icon to "Empty".

Thank Thomas.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1206 Released

Does anybody know if the bug with nvc plug-in for nv-charts has been fixed? An earlier beta did not work with the nv electronic charts and so I went back to 3.02 which works fine with nv-charts. I am in the Bahamas and these are the only electronic charts I have been able to find to work with openCPN. Thanks

RickyEM...

NVC charts work fine on the latest Beta (3.1.1206). Give it a try.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1206 Released

bcn, MarkJ, et al...

Reading the code, it looks a though we do not properly account for field 12 in an NMEA v2.3 RMC message. In fact, we ignore it except as part of the checksum calculation.

There certainly could be a message coming in with invalid position, (lat/lon = 0,0), and valid checksum, but invalid flag set in field 12. Current versions of OCPN would treat this as a valid report at 0,0.


So, that's probably the trouble with "light-speed" travel and newer transponders. Will be fixed for the next Beta, due out in a day or so.

Thanks for the heads up
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1206 Released

Muttnik....

There is indeed trouble with UDP on 3.1.1206.

If you can compile from source, the latest github code has been corrected. Otherwise, a new Beta will be forthcoming very soon.

fyi, the UDP address is necessary only for output connections, and may be x.x.x.255 for broadcast. On input, the address is effectively INADDR_ANY if left blank.
The port is necessary for both input and output.

Sorry you had to spend so much time fooling around with broken code....

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1206 Released

The dashboard button stays depressed even though the dashboard is closed, in one special case.
*start the dashboard by pressing the button
*right click on the dashboard
*untick "Dashboard", in the presented menu
*The Dashboard goes, but the ToolBar button stays depressed.

Running the latest master, I have a local connection set to output, similar to my earlier UDP experiment, but I see no output (blue) in the debug window.....

Mark,

em-trak is the brand of the makers /designers (SRT) of those AIS transponders - latest level.
There are several OEM using them.

BTW: if you would be able to record the NMEA stream when a glitch occurs - just those few seconds before/within/after and publishing those it would help to be sure that we are on the right track .


You are on the way, we on the dry just now...

I just installed the beta and the nvc plug-in does not work with this beta while the plug-in does work with version 3.02.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1206 Released

RickyEm...

Hmmm.... This works for me on Win7/64.

What version of the PlugIn did you install? Recent download from the opencpn.org site?

May we see your logfile, please?

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1206 Released

Hi Pavel,

I have delved a tiny bit deeper into the UDP comms problem that I am having here for your info ....

Until I get to know the code base a whole lot better I have been "cheating" by comparing 3.11stable with 3.1.1206 looking for differences.

I found if I substitute in module datastream.cpp line 243 the value (_T("0")) with (m_net_port) (recompile and install of course) the glue to the socket is created and the NMEA traffic is then alive and well.

Not knowing the code base that well I have not tracked back what is actually in need of tweaking to cure it for the team. I will see if this old dinosaur can work it out in the interim and I can send thru a patch suggestion.

Hope this is helpful in the interim to someone else or to help you guys in tracking it down a bit quicker.


Thanks once again folks for a great program enjoying it all immensely.


Ron

You are right. I am sorry for misinformation. Will try and delete my post. Thanks!
