When I load a Track onto a map, all is ok until I activate the GPS. Then all I get is a direct line drawn from the start ( My Location ) of the track to the end of the track (Destination) .

What am I doing wrong

Thank you for any help

Cheers

Hi Wayne,
You must put other way points along the tracks you wish to follow. There will still be straight lines between points. Suggest you put a point at every junction you wish to turn at. If it is a long road maybe a couple more in between.

Hi Tony
Number of points 989 so that is not the problem

Wayne Send me a copy of the track and I will have a look. Maybe as already stated you do not have enough track points in the track.

If you cannot attach it to the PM then send it to vk1dx@bigpond.net.au.

Hi

What are you trying to achieve? Do you just want to display the track on the map or do you want to use it as "route" and navigate from point to point along it?

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Just an aside Greg

I sorted the current location out. All I had to do was press the blue arrow. The position data was shown on the first page. Thanks

I never used those pages before.

....I dont use CE that often these days (use TwoNav instead) but I use to use the OziCE Screen Designer to make my own "pages" - Just had one with the full map screen and one with coordinates in Lat/Long and UTM.

Also you can turn on and off the various default pages in File - Load settings File - Page Selection..to get rid of ones you dont use/need.

Have fun

I just want to display a track on the map and have the gps arrow ( My Location) follow where I am driving. I dont want the GPS to navigate for me just show me where I am at any given time.

Hi

Ok - you need to load the track and then move it from position 1 in the track list to position 2, 3 or 4 etc. If you leave it in the "1" position it is the "active track" which is not what you want.

So....you need to open the track toolbar (View - toolbars - Track) ..cant remember but I think you click on the Track List button and you can move/change the assigned position of any track. This is a good way to load a series of background tracks onto existing maps and have them visible but "inert".

Cheers

Ok That works thanks for that.

I still dont understand why when a track is active the direct too line is drawn.
Anyway I can sort that out later.

Thanks again

Good stuff,

..not sure but think if you load a track and leave it in position "1" ozi just starts adding points to the track from the last recorded point in the loaded track...so it draws a line from there to your current position ...I think, maybe...not sure what the "direction" line looks like ..cant remember and dont have Ozi Ce handy...and it's been a while.

Cheers

Hi Wayne,

It may be your Nav line.

You can make this disappear by selecting File/Configuration/Navigation/and deselect Draw Nav Line.

It looks like a nav line direct to destination.
I have turned Draw Nav Line On / OFF no difference.

Big thank you to all who assisted in sorting my problem with CE.

I am a happy little camper now knowing I wont get lost. !!!!!!! LOL.

Actually navigation is simple where we are going, a basic map is all that is really needed.

However I just like to follow our progress on the moving map and as I have all these fancy gadgets why not use them. Mind you they did come in handy on the Simpson crossing last year.

Cheers and Tanks again.
