Wadda,

You don't cruise? I wonder how much do you make for the software? Seems like your main interest here is to sell it?

So you're spamming this "free" program on a cruiser forum you haven't posted anything else on and you don't cruise anyway? Your main interest is to advertise the thing. It takes all kinds.

Relax, buddy... Nothing you have inferred or stated is true. You're going off half cocked.

The software is indeed free. There is no need for the quote marks.

Really, check it out. http://navigatrix.net It's something I think cruisers would like, talk about, and promote.

...by golly they do.

In this forum, this is the Navigatrix thread. I will keep my comments on topic...except to say it is better to have your opinions agree with the facts. If you don't know what those facts are learn to use Google, or some other search engine.

Your response is spot on agreeing with what I said but I'll repeat myself.

1. You are spamming.

2. You haven't posted about anything else on this forum except your product.

3. Your main interest is to advertise the thing.

Geeze.

Hi All,

To give this system a good test we used it on our Atlantic crossing from Gran Canaria to Suriname. It worked perfectly for the entire, slow, 23 day crossing. I have a few issues with a couple of the programs in it, but will wait until I try the new release to see if those issues have been dealt with, before raising them.

This concept is great, it is nearly like having a spare pc, but only carrying a little usb memory stick. Really nice to see people using their skills to help people without trying to make a buck out of it.

Happy Sailing

Default Old slur but I can't let it pass

<Begin Rant>

As a cruiser, navigatrix user and supporter I was cruising google and came across this forum and read the posts questioning the credentials of the OP.

To the best of my knowledge the OP has no affiliation with the listed linux distribution other than being one of the most helpful support members on the Navigatrix forum.

As to his qualifications as a "cruiser", one may wish to check out the Wadda Log. I would think that Pine Island Fl, USA to Sydney AU would qualify as a "cruiser".

And, (as the OP and his detractor stated) this is Free! not "free".

Moe is too stylish to defend himself, but I am not.

Hi Joe, Whether or not you've made your way to the tavern to tell all, guess we've figured out that you're a fit in here at Cruiserlog Wadda came and went without a lot of info--never did get further information (look at dates) about his own cruising. I surmise that he was excited to tell people about Navigatrix but that was about it.

Fair winds,

Default Re Charts for Navigatrix (OpenCpn)

@Joe Hill IV

OpenCpn (Navigation program in Navigatrix) can use a number of chart formats. I prefer the raster charts in BSB format (.kap) Here are some sources for free charts.

1. OpenCpn A long list of avaailable free and commercial charts.

2. NOAA US and Caribbean charts from US Office of Coast survey. First listing in this links will download ALL available raster charts. Big zip file ~2000Mb. Updated weekly, last count around 1800 free charts. Can also pkg up to 20 individual charts at a time.

3. Open Sea Chart Community based free raster and vector charts for Europe, the Americas, Oceania and Antarctica.

Hope this helps... If you are going to try out Navigatrix again, make sure you download the latest version as there have been a lot of improvements and additions

Regards
Cap' Couillon

Hello captaincouillon, thankyou very much re seacharts for navigatrix Also, thanks for informing us abt Wadda. Glad to learn he's not a spammer. Yet, can not help thinking that Redopeep asked a pretty fair direct question and gave a clear polite explaination on the basis for her query which deserved a simple ditto answer. Most likely then misunderstandings wld hv been null.
