GPS position display in seconds
« on: July 29, 2009, 08:14:40 PM »
(Humview on the pc) Will we be seeing any ability to see gps locations in dd mm ss  and more specifically in decimal seconds.  Makes it a lot easier to relocate a target.  Also decimal seconds on the unit would be nice.  SAR folks are much more picky on displays of gps.  Chuck

You need to post the HumViewer request in the appropriate area of this web site for comment.  I’ve added the request for the additional coordinate resolution to the Humminbird Wish List on the Yahoo Group web site as I know the Engineers review it.

???Wish List???

I got something for the wishlist as well Greg.
Would it be possible to change the German word for speed "Geschwindigkeit" to something shorter like "Geschw."?
If I chose the paddlewheel speed in the readouts the "Geschwindigkeit" sticks out of the box into the screen.
Something minor, but sometimes it nerves to doublecheck if there is something on the screen and it turns out that it's just the last couple letters of "Geschwindigkeit".

Thanks in advance
Harry

Added it Harry.
You guys could join that group web site and add these yourselves if you wanted but I will do so if requested.

Not trying to take anything away from Robert’s site here as it also has a Wish List area; but I know that the Marketing and Engineering guys look at the Wish List on the Yahoo site.  I would add it to this site's Wish List as well.

LOL!
I had already alerted them to this web site and wish list back when Robert first added it.  I don’t know if any of them ever come on here or not so I will add all suggestions to the other web site’s wish list when asked to.

The wish list is actually not quite the way I want yet.  I did have link to the form posted, but have since taken it down.  I thought it would be good to have the list as individual post and then you could also have comments from other members on their thoughts on the addition.

Anyway, I will work on it this week when I get back from Texas.

Hi sonar2000
I am working on making it possible to configure the format that various information are shown in using the HumViewer program (speed, position and depth), but it takes a little longer than I first expected.

At the same time I have started working again after my back problems are getting better, so I don't have that much time programming right now, so please be patience.

Thanks, still new to this site so am working on navigation on the site.  To maybe close this thread, I see that humminbird does display dd.ddddd.   this is good in that will give you about 1.5 foot accuracy.  I would guess no change to the current display as the dd.ddddd is normal.  Thanks.  Chuck
