upload has an issue.
For reasons that I can't figure out, the Furuno
upload is no longer allowing more than 10 waypoints to be uploaded.
I installed 2118 as an upgrade and then started testing and the test route
I had that was working on 2107 will not upload. Any route
less with 10 waypoints or less, uploads fine.
I've looked at the NMEA data being sent and I don't see anything that explains why it fails. The first GPRTE sentence has 6 waypoints and if the second has 4 or less, it works. Once there is a 5th waypoint in the second sentence, it fails. I can successfully upload routes with 5 waypoints where there is only 1 GPRTE sentence.
There is one thing I think might have something to do with this but I'm not sure if it is the cause. There are 3 characters of data at the end of each GPRTE statement. The first is always an "*" and the next is always a "3" but the 3rd digit changes. It seems to always have a value of 1-9 and sometimes A-D. These 3 digits have always been there but I do not know why they are there. The documentation for the Furuno documentation for the GP-31 upload does not indicate these characters are required. It seems the upload works fine if the value is "*32" but is failing if the value becomes "*3D" in any of the GPRTE sentences.
The documentation shows that up to 8 waypoint names can be listed in a GPRTE sentence and then ended with<cr><lf>. Can you tell me what those characters represent and why they are included?
I tried doing a downgrade to 2107 and also a separate install of 2107, but the route that was working in 2107 is no longer working. If you can tell me how I can completely remove OpenCPN
and then do a clean install of 2107 without loosing all my settings, I'll try and test again with 2107 to see if I can find what is different.
Right clicking on the route and sending to the GPS is also no longer working. The data being sent that is shown on the NMEA window when right clicking on the route is identical to what is shown when sending 2 the GPS through the route manager, but only the route manager upload I s working.
