Route manager (planner problem) in

Tested at home with OCPN 2.3.0 Vista CM93 chart set

The enclosed sreencapture shows a small but significant problem

GPS is connected (indicators green)
Location boat in left bottom corner

Planned route (9 waypoints in upper center) is 31 nm (leg/route panel)

Planned route is 72 nm in the Route Properties (from Route Manager button)

This is because leg 0 (leg zero) is included (the distance from the actual position of the boat to point 1 of the new route).

I like to be able to delete leg "zero" so actual plans can be made for trips not starting at the (virtual) boat location.


I tried to test the same with the GPS disconnected, but the route manager seems always to remember the last actual GPS location signal and start calculations from that point.

Hi
You should verify , but the "leg 0" is never included in the "Total distance" in route properties

Why then (check the screenprint in my previous post) does the Route Manager say the route is 76 miles and the Panel (righthand side of the screenprint) gives the correct 31 miles?

Ptizef is correct. The Panel on the right-hand side gives the distance from present position to the first wpt.
On the picture below I have own boat > 3000M away, and leg 0 is very clearly not included in the total.

I'll add another big thank-you to the developers of OCPN. After several years of suffering with "older" versions of Max-Sea, Nobeltech, Maptech, Cap'n, CMapsECS and so on, I find the stability and simplicity of OCPN to be a treat.

Your work and dedication are really appreciated on board Insatiable II!

Cheers,

Jim and Ann s/v Insatiable II lying Towlers Bay, NSW, Oz, southbound

Your screen print didn't show enough of the route properties to confirm the length of the route. When I create a route the total distance on the Route Properties is the sum of all the leg lengths except leg 0. The range shown in the panel is the distance from ownship to the first waypoint in the route. I'm pretty sure if you add the leg lengths you'll find they total 76 miles, not counting leg 0.

Loving ubuntu and opencpn

Open Cpn 2.3 is brilliant... Thanks very much! Been looking forward to having the dashboard included and now it is, good work.
Even better is that the open cpn developers have released a linux/ubuntu 64bit version which runs twice as fast as windows. Works like a beauty!
Windows users please don't feel afraid to download ubuntu and dual boot your pc/laptop.. you might be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks,

I hope you have found it.
It's in the normal download page, after a small delay.
Download OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Intallation goes fine but then the program won’t open. Error message says something about a configuration error.

2.3.0 release. Windows XP pro SP3. All is very nice except for one little detail.
When I use the ais targetlist and from the list use the target info tab, and then close the targetlist, still with the infobox visible on the display, the info box goes away with the target list. Probably as it should be, but the next time i call a target query from the map, the whole program disappeares or crashes.

I get the same thing on Ubuntu 10.10, with the difference that the crash comes the instant the targetlist is closed. I'll enter this as a bug over at opencpm.org/flyspray.

See
FS#310 : Crash when closing AIS target list with target infowindow open.
