Re: OpenCPN for Android Beta test 4.1.718

7 days until GO time... I will try to report back before I leave on my big trip, but I'm having the same crashing issues others are having.

Samsung galaxy tab 3
Android 4.4.2

Known bug, fixed for next Beta.

Thanks

I am using waypoints which I download from Nautin.nl, they also provide icons with them.
On my telephone, it is all working, icons in directory UserIcons and everything shows perfect.
On the ASUS it does not work, or in fact most of the time it does not work.
When does it work? Well I discovered that when I just had a look in the usericons directory with the file manager, and directly after it I start up OA, they are shown! If I don't open the directory in the file manager only the rounds are shown (indicating no icon available).

Whatś happening, what am I doing wrong, or what is my tablet doing wrong?
Hi Hans,

I also use your/Nautin's splendid UserIcons and they show up fine in both my phone (Samsung S7710) and my tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7). No need to look first in the directory UserIcons. So your UserIcons work perfectly!

Or, to be precise, did work perfectly...

Because I made the wise decision to delete my installed charts in order to completely re-install them. And now every time I try to "add a chart-directory", O crashes...

Luckily the weather today in our country is just fine to spend the whole day figuring out what the heck I did /do wrong....

Roel...

Lets start by looking at the logfile...

Thanks

2) Here is where it gets interesting. Both for the AIS targets and for the grid: the region where they show correctly is the physical top of the tablet, not the "rotated" top. All four orientations, i.e., the front camera side is good, the opposite is not.

Hello Antti,

I see you've got AIS working in OA. But how did you manage to get your AIS-receiver to talk to OA? I've got a Digital Yacht AIS100 USB receiver connected to my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and I just can't figure out how to set up a connection. I just don't get any serial ports to choose from.

I know the DY receiver is OK because it works fine when connected to O on my desktop computer and also when connected to my tablet running BoatBeacon.
On my tablet I use a Samsung USB OTG connector.

Any ideas? Anyone?

Roel

Hi Roel,

Thanks for the compliment about Nautin, we are doing our best. :-)
The icons do work on my phone, so I have no idea why they don't appear on my tablet.

I had almost the same problem adding the charts, after selecting them, they don't show up in the list, so I added the directory manually in the opencpn.conf,
almost at the end I added:
[Directories]
S57DataLocation=
InitChartDir=/mnt/sdcard/opencpn
GPXIODir=
TCDataDir=
[ChartDirectories]
ChartDir1=/mnt/sdcard/opencpn/cm93 2011

So perhaps you can try that.

regards
Hans

Well I'm using a longer route:
AIS-receiver connected via a multiplexer to a BlueTooth module (dx.com a couple of dollars) that transmits to a service on my tablet, making the BT-stream available on a TCP-port. I can connect with a couple of apps at the same time to that BlueTooth to TCP service, e.g. iRegatta, WinGPS and OA. Works very good.
regards

Re: OpenCPN for Android Beta test 4.1.718

Hi Dave,

Can I somehow debug the error I'm encountering with the UserIcons?
And is there a way to contribute to this project? I'm an experienced software engineer (also with Android software), so is it possible to also download a development environment and help with debugging issues?

regards
Hans Fix

Re: OpenCPN for Android Beta test 4.1.718

My guess as to why there are gridlines disappearing is because these lines are perfectly vertical or horizontal and the width is too low.

Maybe we can disable blending or smooth lines but depending on the driver, who know what will happen. The most reliable way would be to use fatter lines.

To verify this: could someone try switching to course-up mode (when the course is also not 0) so that the grid lines are rotated and see if now they are correct?

It would be great if you can help debug. I want to get on it myself but I have a very slow connection so it's difficult to set things up, and I have no real android hardware. Maybe I can run android on a raspberry pi but it's not really my intention.

I think maybe opengl works on an x86 android build in the emulator but I didn't try it yet.

The arm emulator is very slow and doesn't support opengl (even software emulated)

Maybe you can also improve the development environment or documentation for how to build opencpn on android as I know this is a deterring factor for others. Basically if you clone the opencpn source code you will find a directory "buildandroid" which has some readme files explaining things. You could ask questions here if you get stuck.

This theory would not explain why AIS target outlines do behave exactly the same way as the grid lines. Target outlines are drawn to all directions.

My DY AIS is connected to a serial to USB adabter that is connected to my sub-notebook pc. The pc runs O and sends AIS to a Bluetooth serial port. Pc and tablet are bt-paired . On the tablet I run "Connection terminal" to feed the bt data to the tablet internal tcp feed that O on the tablet reads. I have not succeeded to use the bt-spp on the O which would eliminate one link.

Re: OpenCPN for Android Beta test 4.1.718

Ahoy testers...

Regarding OCPN crash on exit from hibernation of device:

I have not yet reproduced this fault on my tablets in a way that can be debugged. So I ask this:
If you experience this crash, please IMMEDIATELY do this:

1. Go to Android settings, and enable Developer Mode.
2. In Android settings, Developer Options, select "Take Bug Report".

3. Alternatively, if you phone is rooted, you may find and retrieve the latest Tombstone file, found in /data/tombstones.

It is important to capture the crash info right after the crash, since Android re-cycles the storage to avoid using too much space on crash reports.

4 Edit the Report
This Report will contain a crash dump, and stack trace, which will look something like this (with details altered):

This is the (only) part of the report that I need to see.
The Bug Report will be fairly large, and I don't want you to spend the bandwidth uploading mostly useless data...


I'll keep trying, but it sure would help to see a stack trace from the crash as reported by BugReport/Tombstone.

In fact, this is the general procedure for reporting crashes on Android, and can be very helpful in diagnosing unexpected faults....

Thanks
Dave
