Ventus Navigation » Ventus PRO Android Vers. 1.14 - 3rd times a charm » 4/10/2017 9:12 am

We found two bugs in version 1.13 that were causing the Alternating Channel Data to display incorrectly, and causing some displays to crash when accessing the Exp Com page.

The new version is now available from Google Play.

I think the issue of all the courses not showing up is just that it takes a bit of time for Ventus to download the info from Expedition.​We have heard from several people with Android devices that the Alternating Data display is not working correctly, but we have also heard from other that it is. So at this point we are trying to figure out what the difference is. I would like to hear from users who have tried Android Version 1.13 with Expedition 10.5.18 and let me know if it is working for you, what version of Android OS you are using, what type of device you have, and if yo are running the standard version of Exp or the 4D version. 

Thanks, Harry

NOTE! If you have downloaded Android version 1.13 of Ventus PRO you MUST download the newest version of Expedition, version 10.5.18, that Nick just released. There was a problem with 10.5.17 that caused the Alternating Data Channels to refresh very slowly.

The iOS version 3.4 has been released by the APP Store and can now be downloaded. It also need Expedition version 10.5.18 for the new features to work correctly.

Ventus Navigation » New Ventus PRO Updates Released » 4/06/2017 11:44 am

We have just released our Android Ventus PRO version 1.13 with several important new features, and
several small improvements. It can be downloaded now from Google Play
* Ability to select new Active Course from your list of saved courses
* Added three new data channels to display data from your sail chart; Sail, Sail Mark, and Sail Next Mark
* When using and Alternating Data Channel the name of the data will now be displayed along with the actual data.
* When sending any of the Sail Data in an Alternating Data Channel the actual name of the sail will now be displayed instead of the Sail number
Please Note: You will need to upgrade your Expedition Software to at least version 10.5.17 to take advantage of these changes, and remember to select the 3 Sail data channels in your list of channels that Expedition sends out if you want to view this data.​ 
We have also submitted iOS version 3.4 to the App Store. It may take from a few hours to a day or more before they release it. I will post again as soon as it is released. The iOS version already has the 3 sails data channels and the Course Command but this version now has the Data channel headings included in the display and the names of the Sail instead of just the number.
Thanks to Nick for making this possible!

We have been working with Nick on getting the names of the Alternating Data along with the data in a format that we can correctly parse and display. That will also include getting the sail names instead of just the number that is currently displayed. Hope to have updates out next week for both the iOS and Android versions of Ventus PRO.​

Peter Isler is hosting is next Expedition Marine Webinar on March 8th and to go along with it we are offering Ventus PRO for $119.99 during the month of March.

We can't recommend his webinars highly enough, and if you are sailing Trans Pac, or any other offshore races this year, it should be mandatory for your skipper and navigator!

The new version of Ventus Navigator is now available for download from iTunes with the bug in Turn to Mark corrected


Ventus Navigation » TurnToMark not displaying » 9/17/2016 4:34 am

We have corrected the bug and iTunes should have it reviewed and released for download hopefully today. The bug is only in the Navigator version, the PRO app works correctly.

I personally don't use turn to mark very much, except sometimes in offshore races. For going upwind and downwind I have a page showing Opposite Tack and Mark Bearing and Layline Time.Layline Time lets people know when to set up for tacks and gybes. When Opposite Track and Mark Bearing match, it's time to go.

For buoy racing I add in Mark Time so we know how much time after the last tack or gybe we will have to get set up for the rounding.

I just checked it and you are right, there is a bug in it. we'll get it fixed!
