Thanks Dave $IIGLL works here now.

But: Is there a reason OpenCPN only seems to accepts certain letter combination for the first two letters after the dollar sign? Looking thru the code. nmea0183/expid.cpp. I found like AG, AP, CD, CS, CT, CV, CX, CC,CM.... II ...?

Reason I am asking: CanBoat on my Raspberry PI3 with a PICAN2-hat translates N2K sources into two letter combinations when converting to NMEA0183. That helps to understand, from where on the N2K network a sentence is coming from.

Is there a convention for only certain two letter combinations be acceptable? Is OpenCPN too conservative and should accept 'any' two letter combination?

Finally got it downloaded and installed. No idea why it was hanging up before.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

How do you turn on the InlandENC mode?

I think I may not be getting all the AIS targets in the area. A couple of times lately I have seen big vessels easily within range but they have not shown up as targets on my chart display. I'm using Ubuntu 14.04, OpenCPN 14.204, and dAISy. Any thoughts on how I can tell if OpenCPN is interpreting all the AIS messages dAISy is receiving?

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

Fabbian,

InlandECDIS at Options|UserInterface
x Use Setting for InlandECDIS

A remark: Somebody said "ugly" toolbar

We are responding here to an urgent requirement of a special group of users.
Some concepts might be interesting for some more as well.

iENC mode is now set in Tools > options > user interface.

All normal and correct coded AIS messages entering OCPN would be seen as targets. We have though seen recent examples of transceivers sending obsolete data. Check this thread: http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...ml#post2319246
If "your" missed targets use the same weird technic it may be a change in O 4.5.213

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

to add:

The AIS messages included are related to Static messages .
All travel related have be interpreted correctly.
You would see a yellow target, but not missing one.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

Thanks for telling me how to turn on InlandENC mode. Does it do anything besides change the icon for AIS targets without heading information? Is there any reason (besides the "ugly toolbar") I should or shouldn't use it outside of European inland waters?

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

I've read the thread on AIS targets that don't show names. My question is about big ships I can see for which I see no AIS target in OpenCPN. Is there some way to verify where the AIS messages are getting lost? It could be the ship is not sending AIS messages. It could be my dAISy receiver is not decoding the messages the ship sends. It could be dAISy is sending the messages to OpenCPN but OpenCPN is ignoring them. I'm looking for a way to discover which is the case.

If I had an AIS receiver with its own display it would be simple enough to compare the AIS display with the OpenCPN AIS target list. but I'm stuck with having to do it all with software. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

Incidentally, I upgraded OpenCPN on my Ubuntu computer this afternoon. On Ubuntu it is version 4.5.214. On Windows it is 4.5.213.

The InlandENC mode setting is only to comply with the european inland regulations(for vessels 20+meter). Absolutely no need to use them outside.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

Have git fetch, git pull and compiled opencpn v 4.4.214 for Windows, done NSIS cpack and then installed in parallel on a Win10 Surf Pro3. The Force Full Chart Database rebuild and cleared the Accelerated Graphics opengl Texture cache due to the changes in the format.

I've just started using it but it seems to be working ok so far. The Force chart database rebuild seems to take longer than I recall from before (on this computer).
Using Accelerated Graphics checked (opengl) and Texture Caching checked.

Have not done a "Prepare Enc Charts" yet, as I need to update all charts using Chart Downloader.

Panning and Zooming with Vector and Raster Charts seems responsive.

Dirk,



although it is intented for larger Inland vessels. I think it is a nice feature for every user. You can change the charts details simply in three stages. And zooming in and out is also easy to do.


You only have to switch the evening/night setting twice to get the daylight view.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

Using VS Express 2013 for Desktop console, have now tried picking "Opencpn" project in Solution Explorer, then "Build >Clean Solution" then "Build > Build Solution F7" which completes properly, then "Debug > Start Debugging F5" and I get these Assert Errors shown in the attached screenshots.

Any ideas? It's been awhile since I used this VS Express setup on the SurfPro3

When I compile this for Release, it compiles fine and seems to work properly.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

Perhaps I should just go back to v 4.5.213 instead. It might be easier.
But do not find v 4.5.213, do find v4.5.212
