Tested the Furuno
upload this morning and everything is working properly!
I noticed that you changed the number of waypoints in the route
sentences to 6 vs. 7 in 3.3.1824. I suspect you must have had a good reason to do that as I noticed something unusual.
I tested a route
upload with 3.3.1824 before I started testing 3.3.2107 to make sure everything was still working correctly. The upload worked fine on 1824. I then installed a parallel version of 2107 and created a 28 waypoint route to test the upload. It failed and after a quick look, I realized you cut the number of waypoints per route segment to 6. Went back to 1824 to try and upload the 28 point route and it failed. Checked to make sure I hadn't missed anything and confirmed that 1824 was uploading 7 waypoints per segments. Tried uploading the route I originally successfully uploaded in 1824 and it failed. After installing 2107, I could no longer upload any routes using 1824.
It seems something in the 2107 installation
changed the upload for 1824. Maybe the number of characters transferred in one sentence was less than previous? Might explain why you cut back number of waypoints to 6.
In any event, it's not a problem as 2107 is now working properly with 24 or less waypoints. I tried lots of variations on the number of waypoints they all work fine.
I did notice a couple of other things and don't know if it existed in the past but a waypoint with a latitude of say 11.11.1119 gets sent to the Furuno
as 11.11.111. It is truncating the last digit rather than rounding it. Same for longitude.
Another thing I noticed is that the distance to the first waypoint in the route varied slightly from the distance shown on the GPS
for the first waypoint. The waypoint was about 45 miles away but was .2 NMi off If I place the cursor on the waypoint. The GPS
shows the waypoint 44.6 and Opencpn
shows it at 44.8. When I activate the route, the range shown on the screen
that shows range, bearing, cross track error, shows the range at 45.3. I have GPS datum set to WGS84 and am using the CM93 charts
. Strange? I've never noticed this before, but I've likely never it looked at it before.
Update: Ignore my comment about the range on the activate screen
being 45.3. I randomly created that route and when I activated it, it selected the second waypoint in the route. After testing a little further, the activation screen matches the GPS but the cursor range is still off by .2 for a waypoint 41 miles away.
