I came out to the boat and tried again this morning. I found I didn't have to do any more than activate the Route
Manager. When I close the Route
Manager focus doesn't return to the chart display. It seems to work the same way every time. It works fine on Windows Vista and Windows 8. I'll check for it again when the next beta comes out.
I can't remember if I ever had a problem with lost
focus when exiting settings. If so, it hasn't happened recently and isn't repeatable for me the way the Route Manager issue is.
I'm also experiencing some intermittent failures connecting to my GPS
and exiting the program. I've attached the log file from today's session, which exhibited both the failure to return focus from Route Manager and a failed shut down. (The GPS
connection was fine, though.)
The GPS connection problem is harder to isolate. I'm using a BU-353. Most of the time it just works. Sometimes, though, OpenCPN
fails to get a good position even though data is clearly flowing in the NMEA
debug window and the GPS is reporting a good position. I've tried removing the connection and adding it back, restarting OpenCPN
, and restarting the computer. All of them seem to work sometimes but not always. I'll report back when I know more.
