Is it possible to copy or use the open map info from off the Internet for Mongolia into a DVD. Or one of those flash drives.

Would that not work some how.

TOOLBARèConfigureèMap then, uncheck “Purger Enabled”. Now any map tile you fetch will be kept. It will also not be updated if the tile changes but that isn’t really a problem unless there is a lot of new mapping in the area of interest.

 

You might want to drop deeper into the same toolbar options and change your specific map choice to not purge. I have several tile sets that I use. Some will never change and so I never purge. The OSM tiles are updated on occasion so those are set to purge.

Hello Lynn , hello all,

I passed my Ham exam a few weeks ago and still new to APRS. I managed to get my Kenwood D710 connected to APRSISCE :-).
I will go to mongolia this summer and won't have internet connection most time of the trip. Is there a possibility to use APRSISCE with offline Maps? Due to the long trip and probably changing routes, caching the maps seems not to be an option.

Hello Daniel,

thanks for your hint. YAAC could be an alternative if no solution with APRSISCE exists.

Re: Offline Maps

Hello Robert,

I doubt that many APRSISCE users went my trip and the cache would be many gigabytes to be shared. The the GPS-simulator could be a workaround if the route would be fixed. We have a planned route but it is pretty sure that we will leave this route every day and at the end the real route will be completely different to the planned one.

Best regards

Re: Offline Maps

Rob Giuliano
 

I assume you mean the method of caching is the issue, not the fact that you need to cache them.
Caching the maps is just keeping them on 'your own storage' to use later - in order words OFFLINE.
 
That leaves 2 options:
1.  Contact / post areas to see if you can find people who have been where you are going.
2.  I know of a few GPS simulators out there where you put in coordinates and the GPS will simulate messages accordingly. 
     This might be an option for caching the maps.  I have not tried this, but it should work in theory.
 
     Feed the simulator a starting point and area you plan on visitng and see how much of that area comes in.

No Gps with MobilKind TNC

KF1BUZ
 

it uses the Phone which I am not using this is my set up


1. win 8 alien ware computer

2. blue tooth connection to mobilkind tnc

3. boafang radio

4. aprsisce


the program is seeing the mobilkind tnc not sure if teh tnc is triggering the radio ( i think it is ) or the program. 

I am getting a GPS error on the program and it will not let me transmit.. I turned off the GPS in the program and its still being kinda goofy.. or perhaps its me...( thats my guess)



any one use a set up like this or am I testing the waters?

Re: digipeater behaviour upon connected mode frames

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

As far as I know, APRSISCE/32 only handles UI frames.  All other frames will fail one of my consistency checks on the Protocol field in the AX.25 header.  This, of course, only applies to KISS-interfaced TNCs.

You should be able to see all APRSISCE/32 Digipeater activity in the Digi trace log if you enable it.  The non-UI traffic should show up with something in the Port() and never appear in the Digi log.

Re: Hi all New guy here

Default: left clicks will get to a different map projection without any maps, right clicks will get full intensity of the maps.

There is an alternate use of the left/right arrows that control brightness under toolbarèscreenèbrightness.

 

When you install, simply unzip to an directory outside of the “program files” playground. Many of us just do something like C:\APRSIS32. but you can pick your poison.

Re: Winbook TW700 and Kenwood D72

Fred Hillhouse
 

I am thinking the flash drive speed might be making Windows think there is an error. Normally I wouldn’t pan around or be changing much as far a maps are concerned. I might try the C drive as well.

 

I’ll run it again tonight on the way home and check it out. The quick lunch time test in the parking seemed to work, although I don’t think I saw the D72 beacon.

 

Interesting, I have never heard the sound before, it works on the tablet. And, there are other things that are different such as what is saved when the program is exited and restarted.

 

I created tiles and desktop icons for APRSIS32 and MCP-4 but not on the taskbar yet.

 

Thanks!

Fred N7FMH

Hi Carl,

 

Good to hear you are successful!

 

It seems the funky when transmitting is passed. I used several different USB cables with similar and am now back to the original which has a choke.

 

Are you running from a USB flash drive? I am trying to and for the most part it is okay. I was getting a drive error so I changed the flash drive with the same results. I let the system ‘fix’ the drive and maybe that problem is gone. I did not see it in the short time before heading back inside to my desk.

 

Did you make any changes to the open/close commands in your XML?

 

Thanks!

I picked up one for a WiRES-X project but bailed on that and have it working for APRSIS32 and the D72 and it works great.  It makes a great portable-pocket sized APRS unit with the D72.  All you need is the USB to Mini USB cable and it is up and running with maps and packet paths.

Just in case you are interested in a Windows tablet …

 

After reading about the WinBook TW700 I decided to buy a couple.

 

 

The lower cable plugged into the WinBook is the power (USB micro), next up is a Staples USB hub. Connected to the hub is an USB flash drive with APRSIS32 and the D72.

 

I haven’t been in range of any other stations so I can’t say I have the correct configuration in APRSIS32 but I was able to read the radio configuration using Kenwood’s software. I will be running everything in my vehicle for the commute home later today.

 

I have connected the TW700 to the internet through my phone (running a hotspot) so I can have an internet connection if needed.

The lower cable plugged into the WinBook is the power (USB micro), next up is a Staples USB hub. Connected to the hub is an USB flash drive with APRSIS32 and the D72.
 
I haven’t been in range of any other stations so I can’t say I have the correct configuration in APRSIS32 but I was able to read the radio configuration using Kenwood’s software. I will be running everything in my vehicle for the commute home later today.
 
I have connected the TW700 to the internet through my phone (running a hotspot) so I can have an internet connection if needed.
 
 
 
Best regards,
