I am trying to use the weather
routing plugin (latest version downloaded from the main site ) on OpenCPN
4.4.0 on Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
Every time I try to load the plugin OpenCPN
become unresponsive. It seems to hang on loading the Climatology plugin.
So then I tried to just load the Climatology plugin and, again, the system become non-responsive at about 95% completion - it shows Cyclone Cache and goes not further. I cannot even shut down the program.
I tried reinstalling the climatology plugin. That didn't work.
any other suggestions?
On a second point, I have a question about how the Polar plugin generates polars from live NMEA
data. Does it keep a running average for each wind/speed combo? I.e. does the polar become progressively smoother as it reads in more and more data? At the moment, after a 52 hours sail, my polar looks pretty raggedy - some big spikes in speed (from surfing waves presumably) that, I would have thought, should have got averaged out by other data (eg riding UP the wave).
Otherwise, how does one go about developing a smooth polar?
