Beta Version 1.11.4

Fixes

  • nil

Changes

  • Changed the way OziExplorerCE writes its configuration files. They were being written as 8 bit ASCII characters, this caused problems with the language versions of Windows which use 16 bit characters (wide characters), the text in the configuration files was scrambled. OziExplorerCE now writes all its configuration files using wide characters.
    • What does this mean
      • People with these versions of Windows can now use OziExplorerCE
      • All configuration files have been changed in name (from .ini to .cfg), this means some minor configuration parameters will be lost. The main configuration file OziExplorer1.ini will be used until the new OziExplorer1.cfg file is created (by pressing the OK button on a configuration dialog). After the OziExplorer1.cfg file is created the OziExplorer1.ini file can be deleted.
      • It is suggested that you check the configuration parameters to make sure they are ok.
      • Map Search indexes have also changed so indexing will be automatically redone (the .fdx1 and .ndx1 files are no longer used and can be deleted).
  • When turning the PDA off sometimes the communication with GPS devices is lost, OziExplorerCE now attempts to re-establish the communication. Communication cannot always be re-established as it may be caused by bugs in the device drivers or the OS, this seems more likely to happen with PocketPC 2003 PDA's. Bluetooth on PocketPC 2003 PDA's seems to be a major problem.
  • The Configuration option for the communication port now only shows the actual ports which the PDA has installed and a description of each port is shown. Note - the PDA does not always give a meaningful description of its ports and also shows ports which are reserved for its own internal use.
  • Added a new configuration option to allow the user to specify if Communication with the GPS is automatically turned on OziExplorerCE is started. The option is on a tab on the "General Settings" configuration dialog.
  • Added a new configuration option to allow the user to specify if the "Screen Control" is automatically turned on when communication with the GPS is started. The option is on a tab on the "General Settings" configuration dialog.
  • Added a new configuration option to allow the user to see the Pixel x,y coordinates of the map when the stylus is pressed on the map and released (before the menu pops up). The option is on a tab on the "General Settings" configuration dialog.
  • Added a "PDA reset" option to the Help menu, choosing this option is the same as pressing the reset button of the PDA.

Beta Version 1.11.3

Fixes

  • Have written a work around for what appears to be a problem in Pocket PC 2003 - this caused OziCE to lockup if using maps on a CF card and the PDA was turned off and on while OziCE was running and the map is then scrolled. Pocket PC 2003 seems to loose the handle to any files which are open on a CF card when the device is turned off and on again which means any attempt to read the image file after that will fail.
    • If using maps on a CF card the lockup occurred.
    • If using maps on a CF card but also have a SD card inserted in a SD card slot the lockup did not occur (the presence of the SD card seems to make things work ok).
    • If using maps on a SD card there is no problem.
    • If using maps in main memory there is no problem.

Changes

  • some internal changes to code.

Beta Version 1.11.2

Fixes

  • Fixed some minor memory buffer overflows in the Grid position display, the problem only happened when the position went out of the legal values for the grid numbers. This could cause problems on all Operating Systems but seemed to be particularly severe on PocketPC 2003. 

Changes

  • When using the GGA or GLL sentence and there was not also a VTG sentence the map position updated ok but the position at the top of the screen did not update.

Beta Version 1.11.1

Some users still think that you need to place map and data files in the "My Documents" folder, this has not been necessary for quite a few versions now, any folder can be used. To put it another way - You no longer "need" to use the "My Documents" folder for anything unless you want to.

Fixes

  • Fixed a problem where when certain maps were loaded they caused erratic behavior because of a memory buffer overrun, this problem only affected a small percentage of maps at a particular aspect ratio so most users of OziExplorerCE did not experience the problem.
  • The create Waypoint button on page 2 of the Screen Control was not working, fixed.

Changes

  • Made a change to the map open function, if the map cannot be opened OziExplorer will now do a few retries, this is to try and allow for Flash card startup times when OziExplorerCE is being started using a hardware button and the "last map" is being loaded..

Development Version 1.11.0

For all the changes since beta version 1.10.9 see the sections below for 1.10.9d and 1.10.9e as well.

Fixes

  • The editing of positions using certain grids still did not work (example NZG), now fixed.
  • The "Navigation Info" bar now appears (if turned on) when navigation to a Name Search record is activated.
  • There have also been some other minor fixes.

Changes

  • The number on the screen for the map zoom level has been made slightly larger.
  • The map name has been removed from the caption (previous development version) and now appears at the bottom of the map screen.
  • Changes to waypoints are now checked and you are notified if you attempt to close OziExplorerCE or load a new file without saving the changes.
  • The "Direction to Steer" arrow now also works for navigation to a waypoint.
  • Added new commands to the OziCE API to send NMEA strings to OziCE, see the API documentation for details.

Development Version 1.10.9e

Fixes

  • More problems with track replay relating to datums fixed.

Changes

  • Some fine tuning of the new map searching.

Development Version 1.10.9d

Fixes

  • Track replay would position the track incorrectly if the GPS NMEA Output Datum setting in OziCE was not WGS84.
  • Fixed a bug when editing position formats for some grids.
  • Waypoint names longer than 20 characters could cause problems - now fixed.

Changes

  • Faster map searching - the map files are now indexed and the indexes are stored in the "System Files" folder attached to the main "OziExplorer" folder. Many hundreds of maps can now be searched in a couple of seconds.
  • The "Screen Control" has been modified and now includes
    • The ability to display the screen control buttons (top left of screen turns this on and off) - screen buttons are shown as transparent over the top of the map.
    • 2 pages of screen control buttons - top middle button cycles the screens
    • Added buttons to the screen control to find next "more detailed map" and "less detailed map"
  • New options on the Map menu / Find Maps to find more and Less detailed maps (same function as the new screen control buttons).
  • Added support for the Vertical Near-Sided Perspective Map projection
  • The Map name of the loaded map is now placed on the window caption (may be truncated for PocketPC devices). Palm PC's do not have a caption bar so this doesn't apply.

Beta 1.10.9

Some users still think that you need to place map and data files in the "My Documents" folder, this has not been necessary for quite a few versions now, any folder can be used.

To put it another way - You no longer "need" to use the "My Documents" folder for anything unless you want to.

Fixes

  • Some minor issues with the file open and path selection dialogs have been fixed - mostly to do with display of the icon for rt2 files.
  • The user pointer file was not being read properly if there were blank lines in the file, now fixed.

Changes

  • The ability to make a route waypoint silent has been added to the popup menu when you press on a route waypoint on the map, this allows silent waypoints to be created easily.
  • The ability to add a normal waypoint to the end of a route has been added to the popup menu when you press on a normal waypoint on the map.
  • Normal Waypoints can now be added/inserted into a route from the Route Properties dialog.
  • Waypoint and Route Waypoint positions can now be edited.
  • There is now an auto-zoom function, when you enter a route waypoint proximity zone the map will zoom to the value specified in Route configuration. Example you may have the map at 50% zoom for normal travel so you can see more area but specify 100% zoom as the zoom to use when a proximity is entered. There are new options on the Route configuration dialog to control this.
  • The playing of the distance to the next turn (when you enter a route proximity zone) is now linked to distance travelled, it will no longer keep repeating the distance if you are stopped.
  • Added special UTM zone handling for zones 31V, 31X,33X,35X and 37X.
  • The moving map user pointers now work differently. You can now have many different pointers, the files must have a .mmp file extension and the file names will appear in the list of pointers you can select on the Moving map Configuration dialog. In the last version the user pointer file was called "userpointer1.dat" you must rename this file to a different name but with an extension of .mmp example aeroplane.mmp
  • There is now a simple API available for OziCE to allow programs to be written to place multiple symbols on the map, useful for displaying multiple vehicles on the map at the same time.

Beta 1.10.8a

Fixes

  • In some circumstances the new OZF2 images showed extra garbled map on the right and bottom of the image, now fixed.
  • Distances in the route list and the list of tracks did not display correctly when the units were nautical miles, now fixed.
  • An incorrect message was displayed if the Com port could not be opened, now fixed.

Changes

  • For "Air" mode the speed now displays as a whole number for speeds greater than 10 and 1 decimal for speeds less than 10.
  • For "Air" mode the bearings now display as whole number with leading zeros - example 23.6 degrees now displays as 024.

Beta 1.10.8

Fixes

  • Fixed some tooltip text.
  • Fine tuned the scale window some more, should be ok now.

Changes

There have been numerous internal changes to OziExplorerCE code to allow the changes below to be added. I have no doubt that we will also have added some bugs, if you find any let us know and they will be fixed quickly.

Waypoints

  • Added a Waypoint Toolbar
  • Create Waypoints on screen with the stylus.
  • Turn On/Off automatic waypoint logging - defaults to On  - option is on the  "File > Waypoints > Log Waypoints to File" option

Tracks

  • Added a Track Toolbar.
  • 5 additional tracks are now available - accessed from the Track Toolbar - a total of 20000 track points can be loaded (the total sum of all points in the 5 tracks).
  • The track in the previous version is still available and still has the previous limit of 1000 points (keeps the last 1000) - this track is exclusively used for logging the track from the Gps for display on screen (the Memory Track Log). Remember the Gps track can still be logged to the Track Log file (ceTrack.plt) with an unlimited number of points.
  • The logged track (if large) now loads much faster at program Startup (if you have the "Load Track Log" ticked in General Settings configuration). Remember it only loads the last 1000 track points into the Memory Log Track.
  • Turn On/Off automatic track point logging - defaults to On - option is on the  "File > Track Log > Log Track to File" option - in the previous version you had to set the log distance to 0.
  • Create track points on screen with the stylus.
  • The Track Configuration dialog has options for the 5 new tracks.
  • There is a dialog which shows the details of each track - description, number of points, length of the track.
  • The track detail dialog is useful for measuring distances - draw a track from point A to point B - open the list of tracks and the distance is shown.

Routes

  • Removed the Delete button from the Route Create Toolbar - deleting is now done by holding the stylus on the object for 1 second to get a menu and then select the Delete option on the menu.
  • The Delete button has been replaced by a button to Show/Hide the Waypoint names.

Map

  • Extra levels of zoom have been added - 90%, 80%, 70%, 60% and 40%". These additional zooms can be selected in the "General Settings" configuration.
  • The zoom levels 90%, 80%, 75%, 70%, 60%, 50% and 40% are created "on the fly". Currently the 75% and 50% zooms can be included in the ozf2 file, there is now no need to include them, this reduces the size of the file considerably. However if the zooms are in the ozf2 file they will be used in preference to the ones created "on the fly".
  • To make these zoom levels look ok they are smoothed using a bilinear filter. Slow PDA's may not be able to handle the smooth zoom option. The Smooth Zoom can be turned off in the "General Settings" configuration.

Other

  • Drag objects (waypoints and track points) on screen with the stylus.
  • There is a new button on the toolbar and an option on the Map menu to Lock/Unlock the dragging of objects.
  • The "Drag Map" button on the toolbar and the "Drag Map" menu option have been removed as they are no longer needed, the map can now be dragged at any time using the stylus.
  • Press the stylus on an object for 0.5 seconds and release to see a "hint" about the object.
  • Pressing the stylus on the map for 0.5 seconds and release gives the position of the point pressed.
  • Press the stylus on an object or the map for 1 second to activate a popup menu.
  • Added extra buttons to the handheld toolbar (the PocketPC version already had these buttons).
  • Generally the operation has been fine tuned and you should find that windows refresh quicker and so on.

Beta 1.10.7

Bugs

  • Locking up on the HP620 (and similar devices) has been fixed, this was caused by a bug in the compiler for these devices.
  • Loading waypoints on the HPC 2.00 and PPC 2.11 platform has been fixed, same cause as above.
  • Hiding the OziExplorerCE toolbar (on PocketPC) would cause the map not to draw all the way down the screen.
  • The waypoint file was being written incorrectly and could not be read properly by PC OziExplorer.
  • When reading the user datums file "datums.dat" it would not read the last line from the file unless it had a "carriage return/line feed" at the end of it - now fixed.

Changes

  • Tooltips (hints) are now provided for most toolbar and dialog buttons. This is for PalmPC and PocketPC only (handhelds do not have the ability). Hold a button down and the tooltip will appear, slide the stylus off the button and the option will not be activated.
  • The ability to select a "Mode" of operation is now available on the Moving map configuration - the Modes are AirLandMarine. This results in a change in some of the terminology and also the way route auto-prompting works, see the help for details.
  • A window which displays a "Direction to Steer" arrow has been added, this is for Marine and Air use, the option is on the Route Navigation toolbar.
  • Waypoint names and descriptions can be edited via a properties dialog, the option is on the waypoint list.
  • The waypoint properties dialog can be configured to open automatically when a new waypoint is created. This option is on the View / Waypoints menu.
  • Route Waypoint names can be edited the option is on the route properties window.
  • The distance and bearing between waypoints is now included in the Route properties window.
  • The route waypoint properties dialog can be configured to open automatically when a new waypoint is created. This option is on the View / Route menu.
  • Map Features and Map Comments are now displayed on the map.
  • When adding or inserting route waypoints the screen is no longer centered on the position, this makes adding/inserting new route waypoints much smoother.
  • The map can be dragged without having to have the "Drag Map" option/button activated. If you click on the map it is re-centered to the position clicked, if you drag the stylus the map is dragged. If you are adding/insert a route waypoint a click on the map will add the waypoint but if you drag the stylus the map is dragged and a waypoint is not added - makes creating a route much easier.
  • The Satellite View dialog can now be set to automatically display when Communication is started and automatically hide when the GPS obtains a fix. See the "Auto" checkbox on the Satellite View dialog.
  • If the GPS does not have a fix the letters NF are now displayed in Red on the status line.
  • If the software is "Busy" still refreshing the screen and another NMEA sentence is received the words "Busy" on a blue or green background is displayed on the status line - this will only occur on slower devices. Basically it means the incoming sentence is not processed.
  • In Name Search, if the record in the database is marked as "Deleted" then OziExplorerCE will put an "*" at the start of the record display.
  • Moving Map pointer can now be set to show more of the map ahead in the direction of travel. There are 5 levels, 0 = screen center, 1..5 shows more map ahead. This option is called "Screen Position" and is on the Moving Map configuration.
  • When the GPS looses fix the voice prompt will not be said unless the fix is lost for longer than 5 to 10 secs.
  • OziExplorerCE can now calculate the Magnetic Variation for any location and use it if the magnetic variation is not available from the user entry on the map or from the GPS.
  • Added a special port for the Navman GPS sleeve, OziExplorer can now automatically determine which com port the Navman is using.
  • Added the Lambert Azmithual Equal Area map projection.
  • Added the VICGRID grid (for Victoria Australia).
  • Added support for polynomial calibration.
  • "Search for more Detailed Map" option On/Off is now available on the Screen Control.

For changes we are considering for future versions of OziExplorerCE have a look at the "Future Changes" page on our web site (select from the menu). Scroll down to the OziExplorerCE section.

Beta 1.10.6

Bugs

  • Under some circumstances the use of silent waypoints in route navigation could cause the program crash, now fixed.
  • Waypoint and Route waypoint proximities were always being displayed as though the unit was meters even though the unit setting in OziCE was an imperial unit.

Changes

  • Changed the "scan for more detailed map" interval from 30 to 60 seconds, as people are keeping more maps on larger flash cards they are taking longer to scan so it is important not to tie up the device scanning maps all the time. We will make this a configurable option in a future version.
  • The "insert waypoint in a route" function would not always insert a waypoint, this has been altered so a waypoint is inserted even if the absolute correct location in the route cannot be determined, use the move buttons in the Route Properties dialog to move the waypoint to the correct location.
  • Turning on communication now turns off the route waypoint add/insert buttons.
  • Turning on "Drag Map" now turns off the route waypoint add/insert buttons.
  • Turning on the route waypoint add/insert buttons turns off the "Drag Map" mode.

Beta 1.10.5

Bugs

  • Fixed proximity waypoints causing a crash if they do not have files attached.
  • Fixed a couple of very minor memory leaks..

Changes

Note : The new Route auto-prompting, the new type of Route, and the faster screen drawing techniques will be added to PC OziExplorer as time permits.

  • The Help has been modified to include the new features.
  • The ability to do auto-prompting along a route has been added. OziCE will automatically tell you to turn right and left and so on as each route waypoint is approached. OziCE works out the turn angle and direction itself and selects the appropriate symbol and wav file(s) and even says the distance to go. Check out the tutorial help section and run a demo of what it can do. Note this is not auto-routing, you must define the route manually, but you do not have to define the wav files played or the symbols shown. Please note this new feature is completely separate from the proximity setting and file attachments used in normal waypoints.
  • You can create a route within OziCE by point and click, check out the route creation toolbar.
  • The route in OziCE has completely changed * only one route can be loaded at a time * it is a new type of route * a route file from PC OziExplorer can be loaded , if there is more than 1 route defined in the file a selection dialog will allow the selection of 1 of the routes * any routes saved will be saved in the rt2 format, PC OziExplorer cannot read this format yet.
  • There is now a dialog to show the waypoints in a route (editing ability will be added in future).
  • The Route configuration dialog now includes a new tab to allow the navigation parameters to be entered (such as route proximity).
  • New Toolbars have been added for "Route Creation" and "Route Navigation".
  • The screen is now redrawn without flickering (there is an option to use the old drawing method in configuration (General Settings) if you like to see everything being drawn).
  • The Text status lines now redraw without flickering.
  • The drawing of objects (tracks, waypoints and so on) on the screen has been speeded up considerable by using new techniques.
  • Added a button for "Search for more detailed Map" to toolbar (pocket PC only)
  • Removed Wp list button from the PocketPC toolbar - this will be added to a separate waypoint toolbar in future.
  • The Speed panel now automatically hides itself when not communicating with the GPS.
  • The Navigation panel now automatically hides itself when not in Navigation mode (along a Route or to a Waypoint).
  • Added an option on the NMEA (GPS) configuration dialog to ignore NMEA strings if the Invalid Fix flag is set to Invalid.
  • Now Displays "NF" (No Fix) on the status line (instead of "ON") if the GPS does not have a valid fix.
  • There is a Voice prompt when the GPS loses and gains a Fix
  • The incoming data is filtered to stop the moving map pointer (the arrow) from flickering around when standing still.
  • Faster track loading of very large track files - the bigger the file the more the saving (note that only the last 1000 track points in the file are retained, the same as it has always been).
  • The bearing displayed on the Navigation Panel will display in the configured unit (true or Magnetic) - if the unit is set to Magnetic but the magnetic Variation cannot be found the bearing is displayed as True but will have a "t" appended to it.

Beta 1.10.4

Bugs

  • Fixed major memory leak when opening new maps.
  • Fixed a couple of other minor memory leaks.
  • Fixed Scale window bug not drawing correctly when scale changed.

Changes

  • Added support for the Montana SP grid.

Beta 1.10.3

Bugs

  • 125% zoom selection from the menu fixed

Changes

  • Waypoint file loaded now faster by a factor of 4.
  • Track loading faster by about 20%.
  • NameSearch will now work with names databases that are not exactly in our published format - as long as the field names are the same they can be used. The MAJOR_CODE field need not be in the database.

Beta 1.10.2

Bugs

  • many, many, minor fixes.

Changes

  • The com port number can now be configured. This allows use of plug in GPS cards which configure themselves as a serial port (typically com port 4 or com port 5).
  • A special port called "GPS1" has been created for use with the NAVMAN GPS sleeve (at least some versions of it). Other versions use COM4 or COM5 or similar. The baud rate may need to be set to 57600 for these units
  • PVT mode has been added for Garmin GPS Receivers.
  • For PalmPC and PocketPC an "Open File" dialog has been written to replace the standard Open File dialog provided by the System, this means any files which need to be opened in OziExplorerCE can be opened from any folder not just "My Documents". If you liked the "normal" Palm/Pocket PC behavior where files can only be opened from the "My Documents" folder there is a check box in OziCE System configuration to enable it.
  • When saving files a new dialog has been added which allows the filename to be entered/edited/selected and the folder to be chosen.
  • All configuration options which require a Path now allow the path to be selected from an "explorer" type interface.
  • An "Open Recent Maps" option has been added to the File menu - keeps the last 10 maps in the list.
  • Name Search has been added - uses the same name search databases as the PC OziExplorer.
  • The NMEA sentences being received can now be displayed - Map menu / Display NMEA Input.
  • The Satellites being tracked by the GPS can now be viewed on screen. The GPS must output the NMEA GSV sentence for this function - Map Menu / View Satellites.
  • Can now read the user datum file "datums.dat", see the PC OziExplorer help for details on how to create this file.
  • A simple Waypoint list (more to be done) is available. It allows you to locate a waypoint on a map, delete a waypoint, and start navigation (go to) to a waypoint.
  • The ability to navigate to a waypoint has been added, there is an option on the View Menu to show the Navigation Information. Navigation along a route will be added soon. Navigation to a Waypoint is specified from the Waypoint List. Cancel Navigation is on the Map menu.
  • Entering a Waypoint Proximity can now trigger the display of a Symbol (see PSymbols folder) and play a sound file (.wav) (or any other type of file actually). These have to be set up in PC OziExplorer which also has this functionality. In PC OziExplorer a waypoint proximity zone needs to be specified in waypoint properties (the distance) and the various files attached to the waypoint (see the OziCE help for details).
  • user defined moving map pointer has been added, see the file userPointer.dat, instructions are in the file.
  • More datums have been added
  • More Map Projections and Grid systems have been added
  • 125% Zoom added
  • More buttons have been added to the small toolbar for PocketPC's (for Name Search, the Waypoint List and Map View).
  • OziCEgps - support for the D109 waypoint format for new model Garmins
  • OziCEgps - support for Magellans with the time included in downloaded tracks, the time is now read from the track.

Beta 1.09.2

Bugs

  • OziCEgps (Beta 1.01) - Fixed the problem with downloading on HP (SH3 cpu) devices. The previous version would freeze at the "Getting GPS Id" stage. This took some time to solve and eventually I purchased a HP 680 for testing. It turned out to be the SH3 compiler interpreting a line of code differently to the other compilers.
  • OziCEgps (Beta 1.01) - Added error message if download file could not be created.
  • Fixed map find function, if there were more than 4 corner markers the maps may not be found.
  • When a map was first loaded it would position itself incorrectly, if  waypoints and/or a track were then loaded onto the map they would be positioned incorrectly. Everything would correct itself when the map was repositioned. This has now been fixed.
  • Fixed a datum problem, this mainly affected the Ireland 1965 datum.
  • Fixed a position display problem, in the Degree Minute display positions close to a even degree (just below) would show as the full degree instead of the correct value. -152 59.812 would display as -153 0.000 .

Changes

  • Added support for Tripmate GPS, untested so far.
  • Added versions for the new HPC 2000 (HP 720), this is totally untested.

Beta 1.09.1

Bugs

  • Fixed bug in Checksum for NMEA string, this should reduce the bad data getting through.
  • Fixed resource leak of a created font which would cause problems when OziCE was run continuously for many hours.
  • some minor fixes

Changes

  • Versions developed for the PocketPC's.
  • A new file format called OZF2 has been developed which allows compression to be used in real time, see the Img2Ozf help in the OziCE help.
  • Download has been done for the GPS, upload will be done later.
  • Waypoints can now be saved to a file.
  • Routes can be loaded and displayed on screen, this is just the start, much more to be done here.
  • The track logging now uses an auto method to collect the points, you may need to change the track logging distance in configuration to suit the new system, see the configuration help for details.
  • Cosmetic changes to some fonts.

Beta 1.08.1

Bugs

  • Fixed bug in Transverse Mercator projection maps.
  • Track loading from file assumed a Data File Datum of WGS84, now fixed to use the datum stored in the data file.
  • Fixed datum bug when loading maps in a new datum, the loaded track and waypoints were still referenced to the old map datum.

Changes

  • Added Swiss grid
  • Added New Zealand grid
  • Added Altitude to screen and track logging etc.
  • Added more Map File paths (now 6 available)
  • The map image file will now be searched for in the 2 image file paths and also in the same path as the .map file and it will be also searched for using the same name as the .map file but with the ozf extension.

Beta 1.06

Bugs

  • Major - The problem with the comms has probably been fixed. I have been using threads (concurrent processing) to handle the comms and process the sentences, found I was overwriting the data I was working on with the data from the next sentence, hence random bad positions and bearings were occurring.

Beta 1.05

Bugs

  • Fixed a problem where the NMEA sentence type was not being saved.

Changes

  • The pointer (position) on the HPC screen was lower on the screen than it should have been, this has now been adjusted.
  • Changed the "No Shutdown" feature so it only works when the device is communicating with the GPS. If the device is not communicating then shutdown will happen as normal depending on your device configuration.

Beta 1.04

Info

  • Made some changes to the color palette code, this looks like it has fixed the OziCE color problems on the Phillip Nino so may fix it on other devices as well. If you device still has color problems with OziCE please let me know and also let me know the parameters   that are reported when you select the Developer Infooption on the Help menu.

Bugs

  • Color palette handling changes have been made.

Changes

  • Added new option on help menu which details the color parameters of the device, this is an aid to debugging color problems.

Beta 1.03

Info

  • Still no luck sorting out the colors on 256 color devices but will keep trying

Bugs

  • Serial port input of NMEA has been modified to fix loss of characters on some devices.
  • Bug in Irish Grid fixed
  • British and Irish Grid now have the coordinates fixed to 5 digits

Changes

  • A new option in System configuration has been added to stop the CE device from automatically shutting down (suspending) when operating on battery only.

Beta 1.00

  • Initial release
