Ok, this is what I got sofar:

1 of 710 in the car being VK2JNG-9
1 of 710 in the Caravan (RV) being VK2JNG-12
1 of APRSISCE Win 32 on my laptop being VK2JNG-10 in the caravan.

When beaconing I can see the 710 in the car (VK2JNG-9) on the map as well as the 710 in the caravan (RV) (VK2JNG-12)

I can send messages to and from all the above three.

I can also see VK2JNG-10 (Laptop) on the T2Texas status page with YES in the 4th column.

However, when I force a TX from the Laptop (VK2JNG-10) I can't see that on the map.


Getting closer by the minute here with your help which is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Gerard

First, at http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&call=VK2JNG-12 I'm seeing the first
indication of the problem. Every APRS station must have it's own
-SSID. It's not a good idea to share them and VK2JNG-12 is being used
by your Kenwood directly. You need a different callsign on APRSISCE.

Can't get myself on the map yet??

Have you entered in an APRS-IS password and followed the on-screen
instructions to zoom in on your home location on the first execution?
Yes I have entered my callsign and SSID being VK2JNG-12
VK2JNG-12 has not directly beaconed to APRS-IS yet. I suspect the
password you entered is not correct for your callsign. If you bring up
the "Info" popup by clicking on your station (hopefully in the center of
the screen), it will list the APRS-IS server to which you are connected,
both as a DNS and as an IP address. Use the IP address and point your
browser to http://<That.IP.Address>:14501 (note the colon in there). I
know the client said :14580, but the status page is at :14501. Once you
get the status page, search for your callsign and check what it says in
the "Verified" (4th) column. I suspect it doesn't say "Yes". (BTW,
Ctrl-F is a quick way to Find your callsign on the status page).

If you need an APRS-IS password, e-mail me directly at KJ4ERJ@...
and I'll generate one for you.

Trying to use it with my Kenwood 710.

What connection are you using to the 710? Did you configure the correct
COM port and baud rate under Configure / KISS? Is the 710 in KISS mode?

I use the com port on the panel of the 710 (Display unit) and via a RS232 to USB converter made by KeySpan to USB com port 7 on the PC.
This has always worked fine when updating firmware and saving database etc.
Under configure > Kiss I get a window asking for IP/DNS and port.
Have not yet configured anything there.
When you click the KISS button on the Configuration dialog, click NO to
the "TCP/IP Port?" question. That will get you into the serial port
configuration page for the KISS TNC interface. Set it all up as you
need to.

I have configured the com port on the Kenwood Menu 519 to 9600 and in the program under Configure > NMEA I have 9600; COM 7; Parity None; Data 8 and Stop 1.
Does the Kenwood put NMEA GPS data out the serial port? I don't think
so. You need to clear all of the NMEA configuration options since you
probably used the same port that you need to use under KISS. If you
want a GPS, you'll need to provide for another one since I don't think
the Kenwood can share that data with the PC while it is in KISS mode.

Note: I can see other local stations appearing on the screen but not my station. BTW On APRS.fi I appear ok as VK2JNG-12
In the scrolling station list, do those stations have * beside them? If
so, they're coming from the KISS port (doubtful). If not, they're
coming from APRS-IS, which is probably rejecting your beacons without
the proper password.

I can only hope! The more people that use it, and make suggestions, the better it will be for all of us.

I'm using it for monitoring only, so I don't have a password entered. (I see that it defaults to -1 in that case, which is fine.) I put in a filter string "f/wb0bzr-12/200" to limit the amount of received data to 200 km surrounding my TT4, and it worked fine for a half hour or so, than it suddenly reverted to what appeared to be an unfiltered feed - I was receiving posits from all over the U.S. If I restarted it, it appeared to do the same thing - filtered for a while, then unfiltered reception.
What do you have the Range configuration value set to? It defaults to 50 or 60 miles (I think). That range is automatically added to your filter string in two ways. First, it is always sent as a Me filter. This, of course, only has effect if you beacon a position to the APRS-IS servers for the callsign-SSID under which the program is running. I suspect this is not your issue, unless you have a live GPS that takes a while to get a fix and therefor to beacon a position. But with a -1, I'm not sure the APRS-IS server would even notice.

The other use of the range parameter is that the client automatically uses this along with the center of the screen for a range filter. This means that if you drag the screen around, it will automatically update your active filter to request that range around the center of the screen.

Finally, if you Center on another station, the client automatically builds a Friend filter using the same Range number as the circle around that centered station. The APRS-IS seems to be semi-sticky on the friend filter. Once you center on a station, you seem to continue getting the range around that station even after the client has removed the friend filter from the active filter string.

Any or all of these could be what is causing your apparent reversion to an unfiltered feed. Just for grins, you could actually set the Range to about 10,000 (which is actually 1,000 miles) to get a small feel for just how much data can actually flood into the client. I keep one copy of APRSIS32 open on my desktop on a server with an unfiltered feed. The station list scrolls faster than you can read. (You currently have to edit the .XML configuration file to change the APRS server or port).

I also use Uiview-32, which is set up to use a similar filter string, so I just set uiview to act as a server, and pointed to it with APRSISCE, which took care of limiting the quantity of received data. As a side benefit, since Uiview is also connected to a TNC and radio at home as well as the 'net, I can see stations directly via rf on APRSISCE.
One of the upcoming features is a server feature as well. If I can pull it off, the server port will actually implement a sub-filtered feed to allow one instance to connect to a full feed and other local instances to connect to the first instance but filter the feed for areas of special interest. There's plenty of other things on the list ahead of that though!

APRSISCE would be perfect for me if it did two things that I can't seem to make it do now:

1) Optionally default to Tracking Enabled upon startup.
This is automatic. I assume you're referring to keeping the screen centered on your own station when you're mobile and running with a live GPS? I suspect you've dragged the screen so that it is no longer actively tracking "Me" as center. Click on your own station and select Center again even though it may already be checked. From that point it should keep your station centered. At least, until you drag the screen away either intentionally or inadvertently.

The other way to ensure that the client is centered on you and tracking your movements is to double-click on the heading panel. The first double-click will restore the currently-tracking station to the center of the screen and live track it. The second double click will return center to you and also begin live tracking your movements.

Remember, the slightest accidental screen drag will lock the map down and disable keeping the tracked station centered.

2) Optionally default to tracking a specific call upon startup.
Good idea. I've wanted that one a few times myself. I just added it to the list. Be aware, however, that when you restart the client, the screen will come up to where you last left it and will not move to center on the new station until a new position report is heard.

Unless I'm not using the program correctly, the state of Tracking isn't saved at shutdown, nor is the tracking of a specific call (or, to be more accurate, the centering on a tracked call). I do realize that the friends list filter string is saved, but you must wait for the call to go by on the scrolling list and then select it in order to keep it centered.
Answered above.

The reason I'd like to have these optional defaults is so my wife could just start the application on her laptop and be able to see where the car is the next time it sends a position without her having to do anything else. (Getting her to wait for a call to scroll by and select it isn't high on the WAF :) ).
Good use!

I sort-of do this now with Uiview-32 and Precision Maps, but if you've ever used the Precision Maps interface with Uiview, you know why I like you program so much!
I used UI-View for about 2 or 3 weeks over a year ago and quickly decided it would be worth writing my own client. I do it because I love programming and even more love to program useful things.

I fully understand that I may simply be using the program incorrectly, and it can do all of the above already. If so, I'd really appreciate it if you'd let me know the error of my ways.
Never hesitate to ask. If I don't answer, someone else will. Also, once you get more familiar with the program, feel free to jump in with answers and/or comments whenever the mood strikes. You do have to be pretty quick to get an answer in before me most of the time though! ;)

Thanks,
You're welcome. Thanks for trying out the program and helping to make it better!

Editing the Lat/Lon in the XML file is the easiest way to fix it. Make sure the client is closed before editing or your changes will be lost. The lat/lon are in decimal degrees. I've got a ToDo item to make a way to set the current coordinate for non-GPS-enabled installations.

The maps are cool. I have dialup, so it took me a bit to get a bunch of tiles downloaded. But the resolution is way better than anything I'm used to seeing with APRS.
I've been pretty impressed with them for most areas of the world (yes, I routinely zoom in on where other people are running the client). There's a street behind my house that wasn't there, so I got the coordinates of the corners and added it! If you see something incorrect, just sign up for an account at OpenStreetMap.org and edit to your heart's content.

This may sound like a stupid question, but I'm new with this so bear with me. Is this all internet based stuff that I am seeing or does the software actually use my TNC for RF stuff too?
APRSISCE/32 was originally written as an APRS-IS (Internet) client for Windows Mobile cellphones. It has since evolved into support KISS-interfaced TNCs, TEXT-mode TNCs, and AGW's Packet Engine sound card TNC (but receive-only currently). My plan is to continue evolving it and adding functionality as time and imagination permit.

At least one, if not more, of the on-line map suppliers have
restrictions like "you cannot display GPS-originated data newer than 5
hours", or "you must include your developer ID in all map fetches"
coupled with "we'll cut you off after N map fetches unless you pony up
some serious $$$$". Oh, and some of them specifically exclude the right
to do any caching or offline viewing of their map data (see the next
paragraph for a possible reason for that one).

They also reserve the right to put "other things" on their map panels
that you are required to display and not allowed to remove. I'm
expecting advertising to begin to appear on the non-paying clients of
those maps. I'm really not interested in giving them more eyeballs for
their financial gain.

Kenny, (Moving the off-topic post out of UI-View)

Glad the program works for you. You mentioned making "some more maps", but with APRSISCE/32 the maps are automatic. I've got a ToDo item to support user-created maps, but currently it will only display maps from OpenStreetMap.org.

If you're going to be operating off-line, you can use "Screen / Map / Prefetch" to download a bunch of map tiles before going offline. See http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/map-prefetch for more information.

You could try APRSISCE for Windows Mobile and Win32. Join the Yahoo Group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/APRSISCE/

It doesn't do as much as UI-View (yet) nor does it support plug-ins, but it works well on Windows 7.
Lynn, I downloaded your software, and in less than 30 seconds, had it up and running with no issues. You have a great little gem there! I will definitely be playing with it some more, and attempting to find or make some more maps.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled UI-View32 about 5 times now, and never have gotten it to work. I've tried installing as administrator and as user. I've tried running it as administrator and as user. I've tweaked just about every setting under the properties for the shortcut, and nothing ever works. It's aggravating for sure.

Re: Faded map

Is this a screen brightness or contrast setting?

I adjusted this in the car hoping it would help with night vision a bit. I am not sure of my impression yet. I was able to change the angle of the LCD to adjust what I would call contrast.

A "night vision" screen would be nice but unlike other software where the background is not fixed this might be difficult.

Anyway, finding new things to like about the software. One thing that I don't care for is a having to restart when a setting is changed. I added TEXT and was not seeing anything, then realized I had to ENABLE it but couldn't until I closed and reopened the program.

Keep up the good work Lynn!

Best regards,
Fred

Hi Lynn,

Thanks! By clicking on the heading the map centers now.

Have you considered a Wiki yet? Of maybe there is one already? Or maybe it
is too soon?

I have my simulator and downloading maps as I type.

To adjust the brightness of the map, either program for the phone or the
desk top; use the left/right keys for brightness and the up/down to control
the zoom in/out of the map.
