Re: WeatherRouting_pi in ver 4.4 - Working for anyone?

hello,
have reinstalled 4.4 and the updated WR new rev. in the thingy file location. now the routing computation is working. thanks for the updates.
a couple of issues though and i cant seem to find instructions for this.

in the weather routing config screen i updated grib time, added my personal boat.xml data and ckd detect land option. a simple route from GG bridge in SF bay to just down the coast to half moon bay.
when i hit the compute command it does complete route but right over land.
also there is a alternate route that seems to follow my cursor, yellow track. ??

i see that's the cursor route and i ckd in WR settings to add alt routes
i've looked through manual and cant seem to find direction. where can i find more detail instructions?

Re: WeatherRouting_pi in ver 4.4 - Working for anyone?

Quick question.
All seems to be working until "Compute" then I get "State... No Data: failed"
Do I have to save the grb file to a particular directory? or is the grib dialogue box "open file" the way to point weather routing in the right direction?.
If so, what am I missing?.

The routing is using the base chart which comes with OpenCPN, not your charts.
The small scale chart for SF looks like this:

Silver I suggest you download and install high res gshhs find them in the user manual under chart sources. Do a search.

Re: WeatherRouting_pi in ver 4.4 - Working for anyone?

thx rgleason, bcn,
loaded hi res maps and its working correctly. im new to opencpn and this program has a lot to absorb to make route planning work so i appreciate the feedback sometimes i think i have to be a coder to get this but slowly finding a way. have a B&G Zeus touch system and trying to figure out if the routes being exportable can be integrated into my chartplotter, mfd.
again thanks for contributing to the forum and the software apps.

Silver Surfer
Yellow track is an alternative track that follows your cursor, it is defined by previously calculated small "short" routes between isochrones which you see in the full development of the routing.

Suggest you save your boat after you make changes.

Re: WeatherRouting_pi in ver 4.4 - Working for anyone?

aaauuugghhh!!
have a new laptop, hp spectre, and i loaded opencpn 4.6.1 and guess what?
i cant get weather routing to work, mainly i cant load boat.xml
my laptop sees the folder C:\ProgramData\opencpn\plugins\weather_routing\
and the only .xml file is one named WeatherRoutingConfiguration

it shows as a .xml file but my computer has windows 10 home and doesn't see .xml but has a word pad icon ??? meaning the file ext is .xml but icon is wordpad
i loaded a app called xml notepad 2007 but it looks like its meant for a coder knowledgeable in boolean algebra expressions plus when i right click file and choose "open with" the app doesn't load as a option to open file.

in the earlier version of opencpn after figuring out the target for the xml file i was able to load the stock shannon 38 data and then edit

is there something im missing? again?

ps in earlier version i was creating routes saving .gpx files and loading on my B&G Zeus touch chartplotter route icons were different but it worked!

thanks for any help

Re: WeatherRouting_pi in ver 4.4 - Working for anyone?

Wxroute should work with v4.4.
What version of wxroute? What OS? Please attach your log file and opencpn.ini file. See "help" or getting started in the manual which describes how to do this.
