Release 0.3.2 of GPS Odometer is now available for download through the OpenCPN package manager.
This release fixes the instrument order problem in Windows and adds a number of new languages (more are to come) plus a number of minor fixes.
The problems on android are not yet solved
, sorry for that, and the community is invited to assist.
Note that NMEA
signals RMC and GGA are required for the GPS Odometer, it will not display anything unless both of these signals are present.
The internal plugin
name has been changed so it is recommended, but probably not required, to clean out the configuration file from previous GPS Odometer information following this procedure (Please click the 'Question Mark Icon' for information where to find the file):
Take note of the current
'Sum Log Distance' or the value will be lost
NOTE: Stop OpenCPN before doing any of these changes!
There may exist alternative names for the plugin, containing 'odometer':
1. Remove everything from and including '[PlugIns/gps-odometer_pi.so]' (anything containing 'odometer') down to the next opening square bracket for the following config item ('[')
2. Remove everything from and including '[PlugIns/libgps-odometer...]' (or anything containing 'odometer') down to the next opening square bracket for the following config item ('['). This section only have two lines.
Please note: Do not remove the opening square bracket for the next configuration item.
Start OpenCPN again, you need now reactivate GPS Odometer again in the plugins menu.
If you have a recorded 'Sum Log Distannce', please do:
- Stop OpenCPN again
- Update the value 'TotalDistance' as noted
- Restart OpenCPN
Last but not least: A great thank you to all the people (no one mentioned, no one forgotten) who have assisted in getting language translations added, could not do it without you.
