I believe there is a bug in the output from this option.
If the latitude of the waypoint is < 10 degrees then only 3 digits are inserted before the decimal point. There should be 4 with a leading zero.
Here is the output from OpenCPN
The above output gets interpreted incorrectly by the chartplotter
as a Lat of 83 degrees instead of 8 degrees.
The longitude field seems to be correctly formatted though I haven't tried it if Longitude is < 10 deg
From Waypoint properties 008 36.538 N 083 11.906 W
I believe this is the correct NMEA
== WPL - Waypoint Location ===
1 2 3 4 5 6
| | | | | |
2. N or S (North or South)
4. E or W (East or West)
5. Waypoint name
I have only just started using OpenCPN
and I am most impressed - a great piece of work.
Is this the correct place to make a bug report or is there another avenue for reporting bugs ?
