Dave,

I have said that I used gebabbel with NMEA interface. Sorry, it is not true. I set my GPS to GARMIN/GARMIN interface and I have to kill the gpsd daemon.
In gebabbel I select the kind of entry : GPX and then the file, route.gpx for example.
I select also the outpout : Garmin and the destination, /dev/ttyUSB0 for example
And it is all, I launch and I get the route, not only the waypoints, in my GPS. I lost the name of the route which become : first waypoint -- last waypoint

I will do some tries this morning with interface set to nmea.

Jean-Pierre

The "grey double pointed arrow" is a recommended (two way)track corresponding to the Swedish Charts solid black line. This is quite reasonable. US charts use a solid line for a recommended track based on a system of fixed marks. A dashed line with double arrows, similar to CM93, represents the track otherwise. In Swedish charts a solid line is representing both cases.

Hi, sorry for late reply. I understand what you mean (and I was wrong about RECTRC), however, the "red/pink arrow" symbol should show up. At least it does so on a Navman 5000-something plotter. I believe it's the cartographic symbol:

Code:
Feature Class: $CSYMB

Position: 058 05.107 N   011 18.718 E

Attributes
   $SCODE      (IQ130.2)
Currently displayed as a pink question mark "?". Visible on screenshot below:

Best Regards

Jakobsson...
The question mark is a default for anything we don't have rules for. In this particular case I'm really not convinced that displaying the 130.2 symbol clarifies anything to the user though (see screenshot with the rule added below)

Dave,

I have made some tries with gebabbel and nmea interface. For me it doesn't work. I get nothing in the GPS.

copy of post in FAQ....

jp....

Garmin hardware is, well, Garmin.....

It begins to look like most Garmin GPS receivers will not allow upload of routes in generic NMEA mode.

I think they may need "GRMN" private mode, which opencpn V2.1.0 does not support.

This is a fairly significant piece of programming, and probably won't happen for the 2.1.0 release, although I will look at it again tonight.

I agree that the function is important, since Garmin GPS's are so popular.....

It should be possible to export a route as GPX, then use gpsbabel to upload to Garmin. Does this work? I'll try a test here with my old Garmin GPX-38 handheld receiver.


Dave

RC611a

Folks....

Version 2.1.0 RC 611a is on CVS now.

Changelog:
171. Adjust dialogs for 800x600 screen size.
172. Improve Toolbox->Charts dialog, thanks to SethDart
173. Properly deselect routepoints after right click and no context action.
174. Set default trackpoint icon as "empty" on GPX Track Input
175. Correct COG averaging algorithm near North.
176. Add MOB button to Toolbar
177. Modify Windows UnInstaller to remove all configs, logs, SENCs, everything.
178. Partially correct for some poorly formed IENC charts.


---Release Beta RC611a---

Windows setup coming soon....Bandwidth limited here...

Notes:
178. Dutch IENCs do not crash, but some do not display well either. More work needed here, probably not happening for 2.1.0

Issues still open:

1. Garmin 126 Route upload. Requires "GRMN" bidirectional protocol? May not happen for 2.1.0

2. GPX I/O on ',' locales. Inconsistent results. Should be decimal ('.') only in GPX output, and GPX input should convert from decimal to proper locale. Please test if possible.


Thanks
Dave

You can reach it in the right button menu, just under Route Manager menu item.

The content is refreshed every 5 seconds. Only tested with manimaul's AISReplay so far (BTW thanks a lot for that one)

Enjoy!
Thank you, nice feature. Works as advertised! No problems patching, installing or running.

Hi, it's supposed to point in the direction of the recommended track, in this case 65 degrees. Otherwise it really doesn't help the user. The quoted post in my previous post contains a screenshot from a scanned chart over the area.

Best Regards,

Jakobsson

Special thanks for this (also in the name of many users of the German community)!

Please allow just 3 remarks concerning MOB:
  1. Because this function (normally) is only used in an emergency situation where people may be a little confused, it would be great if clicking the button would not only drop the MOB Mark, but also activate an automatic route to this point (like the new Go To Here function). I don't know if it would be possible to have a route to a single waypoint (because for the Go To Here function you used 2 WP).
  2. For security reasons it would be nice to have if the MOB mark couldn't be deleted like a normal waypoint (or by delete all waypoints). And if possible the position should be stored in a way that makes it possible to get it back even if the WP was deleted.
  3. The background of the MOB Mark Icon isn't transparent ...

Thank you very much for this fantastic new release ,
Gunther

well, at least the MOB marker shouldn't be able to be moved around or automatically be moved back if moved

test 611a windows

Hi Dave

Once more many thanks

611a loaded and built without problem

first tests results :
points 172-173-176 works fine
Point 171 : It seams to not be really adjusted to small screen (may be this is coming from the "vector chart" tab which is to big (shot attached)

Best regards
Jean Pierre

Maybe, but the problem is that there is no ORIENT attribute (as you can see in the Object Query), so there is no way to rotate the symbol... When you have a look around, it looks like CM93 is pretty fuzzy about these symbols and they don't align with the RECTRCs properly - I especially like the one in the middle of Braatoe island at 058 05.795 N 011 26.505 E Really not sure whether it's worth the rasterization rules modification... Any MaxSea (or something else displaying the CM93 charts) user who could have a look at this place and let me know how they handle it?

OpenCPN RC611b

Hi there...

RC611b is ready for download.


http://opencpn.org/downloads/beta/opencpn_210_setup.exe

Changelog:
179. Lock MOB waypoint
180. Add SethDart AIS target list.

---Release Beta RC611b---

CVS updated.

Notes:
1. GPX ',' and '.' problem resolved.

2. This is the last call for .po files. Really. Some uploaded .po files have had problems. Please check yours carefully. The latest French .po was corrupted, and could not be used....

3. Garmin GRMN protocol and Dutch IENC corrections are deferred until the next release.

I think this is the one!

Thanks for all your help and patience as we iron out these final knotty details.

Dave

Just installed 611b.exe

Many wonderful tings, but the issue I'm seeing is that it jumps out of quilting mode in situations where previous .exe builds still funtioned well. I'm using 611b.exe, XP, and the NOAA raster charts of Chicago and Lake Michigan.

I went back to the previous .exe release it became so problematic.

Everything else is great. this quilting drop-out just got too much of a problem. Sorry to say.
