OK, this is interesting, I didn't notice for years till I finally put in a pilot. I am using an old version, 3.2.2 on an XP (SP3) PC. Reason I still use the XP system is it has an old version Nobeltec
which runs my early version PC Radar
. I once tried updating ocpn with a new version and it wouldn't launch so back to the old one. I don't even like the newer Nobeltec
, least of all the Time Zero, even if it was affordable and would run the old Si Tex radar
My XTE value is reversed, showing R when the boat
is left of track and vice versa. The chart and highway show correctly but the displayed and output value is reversed. Same with all routes including a temporary go to. Naturally, the pilot goes in a circle if Nav mode is selected. A newer version on the notebook pc getting the same pos data is correct.
Any ideas on this? Or why a newer version wouldn't launch? Some newer versions that might work
better on XP than others?
Also, I notice that the Nobeltec runs much faster than the ocpn, taking only a fraction of the time to switch charts
. Any thoughts why ocpn might be running slower than it should? The pc is a Via EPIA mini ITX 1000 mhz, 2G of memory if my memory is correct.
