Bug in coordinates

Reported by: Jose Luis Sogorb Owned by: ste
Priority: major Milestone: 1.2.12
Component: FsComp Version: 1.2.12
Keywords: Cc:


Hello, our regional competition is located very near to Greenwich Meridian, west longitude, and we have noticed all waypoints between 0 degrees and 1 degree west (-1 in coordinates notation) are wrong. It seems as if FS doesn't add the minus sign to any coordinate beginning with -000.xxxx ,so it is a distance of more than 150 kms to the real place. Thank you, Jose Luis Sogorb

Ok, I have seen the problem is in GpsDump, not in FS. If you save the coordinates as Geographical file, everi coordinate between 0º and -1º (West) are wrong coded. If you save as UTM file it works fine. Jose Luis Sogorb

Indeed a bug in FsComp (nothing wrong with GpsDump as far as I can tell). Workaround (as mentioned over) is to save the file in UTM format in GpsDump. Will fix in FS 1.2.13.

bug in public static double ParseLon?(string lon_string) in GeoUtil?.cs.

Does affect any coordinates written as "W 000 ..." or "S 000 ..." in wpt files used in the FsComp task window (the format that GpsDump will create when selecting "Geo...").
