You should be able to export the routes from OCPN, and then import to the 400c in Mass Storage mode.

Does this work at all?

As a test, maybe you could manually make a route on the 400c, and export it from the device, saving to your PC. We could then compare the Garmin GPX file to something similar from OCPN, looking for significant tag/key differences.

I've used the device in USB mass storage many times. I pull tracks off the device every couple of months through the current.gpx file, and they open just fine in OpenCPN.

I do all my route plotting on O, and always upload them in to the Oregon so I can have complete agreement between the device an O when following a route. However, copying a route into the device is not sufficient in my experience. It needs to be uploaded in a way that the device recognizes the new route and (automatically) imports it into the current.gpx file. The only way that I have been able to do this is using MapSource or (more recently) Homeport to transfer the routes while the device is connected in mass storage mode. After that, removing the device and rebooting always leads to the routes being imported into current.gpx, and everything is fine.

Transferring directly from O to the handheld would be nice, but is not crucial to me. My workaround is fine, especially since I do not plot that many unique routes. There aren't that many places to go in my river.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1303 Released

I think this one is for Nohal/Pavel.

In beta 3.3.719, #73. Update to Track Properties Dialog

Looking at this now, I find that the previous option of selecting "Time shown as" + three options, is gone. In my test all times are set to "UT".
Is this a bug or a feature?

Thomas

Thomas...

Tracking this one today myself.
Also relates to FS#1294 : Saved tracks - timestamp missing in track properties

Wait for Pavel to get back to me...

It's actually an effect of the rework of track and route properties not being finished. I admit that I take awfully long at that.

As I said before, simply placing a .gpx route file into the directory structure is not sufficient to have it recognized by the GPS. It's much more complicated than that.

I just ran another test to see how Garmin's Homeport software exports routes into the Oregon 400c. Since Garmin software has been successful uploading my OpenCPN routes, I figure it would be helpful to see how it does it.

With the Oregon connected in mass storage mode and Homeport open on my computer, I imported a route from my hard drive into Homeport that was originally created in OpenCPN. I then exported that route into the Oregon using Homeport's commands. While still connected in mass storage mode, I went to F:\Garmin\GPX\temp.gpx, was that the modification date/time had changed, and looked at the file contents with a text editor. The route was there. I then looked at F:\Garmin\GPX\Current\Current.gpx and confirmed that the route was NOT placed there. Its mod date/time corresponded to when I attached the device, NOT when I exported the route.

I quit out of Homeport, ejected the Oregon, booted it into GPS mode, and confirmed that the route was present there.

I shut off the Oregon and plugged into the computer's USB port and selected mass storage mode. For a split second there was a message that the device was creating the current.gpx file. Upon navigating to F:\Garmin\GPX\Current I could see the modification data/time of Current.gpx corresponded to the startup time. Looking at the file contents with a text editor confirmed that the route was there.

I disconnected and rebooted in GPS mode. This time I deleted the route that I had previously exported. I then reconnected in mass storage mode. This time, the Current.gpx file did not have the route, but the temp.gpx files still did have it.

So in summary, it appears that Homeport's process for exporting new files is to insert them into the temp.gpx file, where the Oregon detects it upon bootup. The Current.gpx file is not changed until the Oregon reboots in USB mass storage mode, at which time it is updated with the new route.

Homeport will not delete routes from the Oregon - that must be done withing the device. When I do that and boot into USB mass storage mode, the new Current.gpx file does not have the route, but apparently the temp.gpx file still has it for historical purposed.

FYI, the temp.gpx file is significantly larger than Current.gpx (92 KB vs. 23 KB). Temp.gpx is nicely formatted with line breaks and indents, while Current.gpx is a "run-on sentence" with almost no line breaks or indents.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1303 Released

Plugins can now add entries to the right-click menu.
A part of this should include cleaning up entries when the plugin is no longer active, in my opinion.
The grib plugin leaves the "Weather table" in the right-click menu, for the rest of the session, even if the plugin is not active.
The weather Routing plugin, for example, handles this issue correct.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1303 Released

Is it please possible to remove wxADJUST_MINSIZE from the code?
This wx ID is outdated since wx version 2.4. It does nothing anymore.

It most likely is. If you post a patch to do that, it should be even fast.

Pavel,
no patch needed, simply delete wxADJUST_MINSIZE everywhere in the code, that's all.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1303 Released

Pavel..Gerhard..
I thought I've better test what these Macinists(?) are up to! (Sorry -- trying to joke in a friendly manner)
I've test it and works for Win32. And of course it's a good idea to get rid of scrap.

Find my my diff to 1303 attached if you want?

Cannot reproduce:

More info/scenario?

Regarding wxADJUST_MINSIZE:

I agree that this is obsolete, but why do you care?

Attempting to add new waypoint in route manager causes instantaneous crash in Mac.

hi All

Yes it happens when going out of from the plug-in by the red cross in the main dialog instead of clicking on the plug-in's icon
Sorry a can't correct it at the moment
