I've updated the program. It now has a simple user interface that tells you what's happening. The location updates are usually quite irregular, typically only once in a minute or so. Will look into that later.
Please download:

Re: OpenCPN on Window 8

ok, tried installing today, but am not getting any location information still.

I ran the 12kb app and it opened a command box which said "press any key to close". I then ran Opencpn and setup a network connection with the address given. Do you need to check any boxes after you click into network connection? I also tried running the 1kb config file, but wasn't able to see how I could get into the directory....I'm way too out of my league for this

Thanks for this.... I have been trying to find a solution to the GPS issue on my Dell Latitude. I'll let you know how it works when I get the chance to run it.

OpenCPN on Window 8

I've written a small application that enables windows 8 tablets (or notebooks with GNSS sensor) to use OpenCPN. It's quick and dirty, a work of couple of hours only, but seems to work.
It's been tested inside of a fiberglass boat and the GNSS sensor seems to be able to pick up the signal quite well. Hasn't been tested at sea yet.
See the details here:
