PolarView freezes when receiving NMEA data over Wifi
PolarView freezes when receiving NMEA data over Wifi
November 09, 2018 12:30AM
I am running Polar View on a Mac mini running Mac OS X 10.14.1

The Mac was connected to an on board wifi system that was delivering NMEA data for position speed, AIS data etc. in Live Ship Mode. I opened the NMEA Terminal and after a few seconds the wxWidgets Debug Alert came up and PolarView froze. If I do not open the NMEA Terminal PolarView works fines far as I can tell.

I had to force quit to exit.

This fault did not appear when the wifi was off and I was using a USB connected GPS receiver.

Perhaps I have a setting wrong?

Please advise

Thank you for the report. What version of PolarView are you using?

You should be able to press "Cancel" to dismiss this alert and suppress it for the duration of the program.

I am using 3.0.6

Whole screen freezes so can't mess the "Cancel" button as it is behind the NMEA Terminal window.

Understood. Should have a fix available shortly.
