I am working with OpenCPN 5.2.2. The plugin is installed like other legacy plugins. No special requirements. Can be uninstalled easily on Windows.
Suggest working with these files (remove .pdf):
(just a normal OpenCPN route file. No radius turns)
(Example of a GPX with added radius turn markup - if opened with 'Edit GPX' will show a radius value if you select a waypoint - not first or last) No radius turns will show if imported because the turns have not been generated.
(Example of a generated 'radius turn gpx' - if imported OpenCPN will show the radius turns)
#1 'Edit GPX'
using the 'Cattewater.gpx' file. This produces a list of waypoints. Select a waypoint and add a radius either by typing in the value or by using the slider. Press 'Update'
to save the radius turn for that waypoint.
#2 Important: Use 'Update'
for saving an individual waypoint radius, by pressing the 'Update' button. Repeat for other waypoints where you want to add a radius. If you don't update after you change the radius at a waypoint no radius will be saved for that waypoint.
all the edits to an intermediate gpx using a new file name - probably not 'Cattewater.edits.gpx'. For example 'test.edits.gpx'. This will have the markup ready for generating a radius turn GPX. If imported radius turns will not be shown
. If opened with 'Edit GPX' the plugin will show a radius value at selected waypoints which have a radius.
#4 'Generate GPX'
. This allows you to open the 'test.edits.gpx' file and save to the final 'radius turn gpx' - for example 'test.turns.gpx'.
the 'radius turn GPX' using 'route manager' from OpenCPN and the radius turns will show on the chart.
