BUT
If I place the first WP of the second route very close to a WP of the first route, then crash.
Easily reproduced.
Bug confirmed on Win 10. The fault starts here at line 1040 in Route.cpp:

wxRoutePointListNode *node = pRoutePointList->GetFirst();

For some reason this returns node=NULL then the NULL node pointer is used in the next line:

RoutePoint *data = node->GetData();

Need to figure out whether the GetFirst() method should ever return a NULL route point. I think the bug is that it should not. But still would be a good idea to check for a NULL return pointer. If one adds 2 lines to check for NULL pointer then all works ok:

Code:
    wxRoutePointListNode *node = pRoutePointList->GetFirst();
    if (node == NULL)
        return RBBox;

    RoutePoint *data = node->GetData();

What does this GPS timeout means ?
on 4.0 on the same platform and same HW ( with no GPS connected, just for testing) I do not have this.

I hope this helps
Dom
Dom,

GPS timeout message is normal if there is no GPS connected. I think this may be a new message since 4.0. It is harmless.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.2 Released

Many graphics are missing from the OD plugin pages of the included manual especially from "Interface at the icon Toolbar" and down.

P.S. Where to find the GHSSH high res background man mentioned in the WD plugin as the link doesn't work?

Cheers
Chris

For a linux build, you may want to specifiy the gshhs files to include as documented in CMakeLists.txt...

example:

Code:
$cmake -DBUNDLE_GSHHS=CRUDE ..

Dave:
I'm a little confused, in the Chart Sources section of the manual it says:

High Resolution Background Map
A more detailed version of the built in background map is available here (http://opencpn.org/ocpn/downloads/data/GshhsHiRes.zip).
It is a big file, 230 mb(unzipped) compared to the standard 26mb, and may slow your computer down. The presentation is better when zoomed in, but most users don't need it.
Install by unzipping and placing the files in the <install_dir>/gshhs .
<install_dir> is normally ...Program Files/OpenCPN on Windows and /usr/share/opencpn/ on a Linux default installation.

So my script downloads this file, then installs it in the /data/gshhs folder before it builds O. Is this the wrong way to do this, because its been working for a couple of years just fine but now it barfs at the make install.

My cmake configure line looks like this:

cmake DPREFIX=${DESTDIR} -DBUNDLE_DOCS=ON -DBUNDLE_TCDATA=ON -DBUNDLE_GSHHS=FULL ../

The cmake, and make part of the build work just fine, it's just the make install that stops because it can't find the missing file.

Ubuntu 14.04.3 running on Tegra TK1 (ARMHF).
Thanks,
Freddie

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.2 Released

sbfreddie/littlechay...

The file you want is now at:
http://opencpn.navnux.org/data/openc...s_2.2.4.tar.xz

This archive has all of the gshhs resolutions available. The contents should be moved/copied to data/gshhs directory in the build tree, before the "$make install" step.

Feel free to update the doc Wiki to reflect your experiences in building...

Thanks
Dave

Works great on Windows 10 here. Thanks for all the hard work!

Any update on the Ubuntu repository? I am dying to test my new Simrad 4G.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.2 Released

Hello,

"If the chart is not using WGS 84, but a named, recognized datum, OpenCPN will automatically add necessary corrections."

Is there change in this version ?
My charts BSB with european 1950 are now not good.
It was ok with all the beta before 4.2 (.... 4.1.1308)
Thank you

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.2 Released

Dave

Just one question you answer, if you have time. This relates to touch screens. You know, my W10 tablet has a screen of very good quality and only 10 inches diagonally. Therefore, the pixel size is very small.
I try to highlight on this tablet, the little bug spotted by DonNomade. I can not. Yet I know it is because we are already confirmed three of which Hakan to say.

When I want to make a road, I see that with my finger, I can not place a WP really where I want. Then difficult to move and to improve the positioning.

Another idea would be to place a waypoint, roughly. Then, by fixing the position of the waypoint in the "map area", move the chart, not with one finger, but with two fingers. Chart would move and bring the point of the "chart" just under the WP. After that, we would validate. What would hang the WP definitively at this point of the chart.

It would be much easier. Best regards. Gilletarom.
