Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1319 Released

Under Tools Connections I had to add the Garmin GPS back in. It did not retain this when loading the Beta version.

Also, the debug window now displays the Garmin GPS information.

Nice job!

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1319 Released

I am using Beta Version 3.1.1328 Build 2013-01-28.
GPS position available and good for navigation is all that shows now.
Before I loaded the Beta Version it was:
Active/Valid GPS data + GPS reporting 10+ satellites, if available from GPS receiver.
I have not changed anything except to load the Beta Version.
Interesting!
Any suggestions as to what I should be looking at to resolve this. The Garmin GPS is working OK and the navigation information seems to be OK.
The Beta Version shows data from the GPS in the NEMA Debug Window. The previous version of OpenCPN did not show data from the BPS in the NEMA Debug Window. This leads me to believe there has been a change in how OpenCPN looks for data from the Garmin GPS.
