OpenCPN ScreenShots, fun and interesting

Hi folks...

I'll start.

Garmin Radar overlay on a home-made GE2KAP chart in southern Bahamas.

Three points:

1. We have four neighbors. Note how easy it was to find an unoccupied clear sand anchoring spot.

2. I am continually amazed at the georef accuracy of GE images.

3. This image was captured live from a remote machine with VNC connection to my main production nav station computer.

Anyone else got some cool shots?

Dave

Hello,

lot of people in the area. Who said that VHF/AIS has limited range ?

That part of the world has AIS repeaters at the base stations so the 200M away AIS target is being repeated by the 10M away base station.

Re: OpenCPN ScreenShots, fun and interesting

More on the "fun" side...

4 weeks out of Cape Town, with no traffic at all during passage, a rather cold awakening to the joys of Terra Firma...

Good that after seeing the cruise ship point clearly behind, I relaxed enough to switch to day palette for taking the screenshot.

Re: OpenCPN ScreenShots, fun and interesting

Tested a slightly modified Android Beta test 4.1.718 in a race Roslagsloppet | Med Roslagsfestivalen , ~80nm average speed 60mph .
Working perfectly a bit of lagging when turning.
Imported a GPX file from the organizer into O 3.2.2 windows , modified it , then imported to OA and used it as active route.
Has put Follow to the back button and zoom to volume buttons,can' t use fingers on screen when bumped around.
Run OA full screen on a Samsung S tab , but had a Garmin as backup.
