I checked the 1.9 version and regarding the server is perfect (User IDs)
Now about the client there is a question. When you execute the W3bTrack and you don't select any job the globe icon frashes green & red. I think this is normal but there is no Connected Sats info. When I select Logging Data the globe becomes steady green (normal) but still no indication on the Connected Sats window. When I select Start Tracking .....
a) The Program Status window indicates Tracking, Current Data Sentence window displays nothing, Connected Sats window still nothing and the globe icon is permanently red. If I press Stop Tracking and then Start Tracking again the Current Data Sentence window displays the data, Connected Sats window still nothing and the globe icon is permanently red.
And another thing which is a little bit strange: Why does it take so long to synchronize with the GPS when press Start Tracking comparing to Track to Log?
After 5-6 execution of the W3bTrack if behaves differently each time. The 3rd time I managed Start Tracking and had Green Globe icon and then I started to debug the problem.
1) There is no indication of Connected Sats
2) The globe icon flashes. If you request an action while Red it remains Red.
If you request it while Green it remains green.
That's all for now....
I think that if you stop flashing the globe and just indicate if you have Gps data the globe Green and if not the Globe red will partially solve the problem.
The red/green globe flashing is just stating there is data to be read, but the program doesn't do anything with gps data until you tell it to, or you have it on autostart (log or track), so no display of sats/gps data until you're running a function. I have made a few changes to the code so there is a more reliable indication, and fixed the bug where it stayed in one color or the other if you started a function while it was displaying that color globe. The reason for the flash getting stuck on one or the other was I had the port connection indicator in the wrong loop of code (I actually needed to reference it to the two function loops), so it should do much better now.

When tracking, you're pull 2 of 3 sentences, pulling the data from each one as needed, doing calculations on speed and hemisphere (for the correct "-", depending if you're N W S E), and a few other things, and then transmitting it to the server and starting all over again.. If you have the upload freq set to 1500 (1.5 seconds) the average loop time is actually about 4-8 seconds depending on your internet connection speed.
I thought I fixed the sat indication while tracking, but I'll check again. When logging, again the reason there is nothing shown (like Sats) is because everything is just written to the log file directly, without any data manipulation. The data isn't worked with till you upload it to the server.
Ok... well off I go to check out the sats.. :)
Here I am again....
The icon pb is not solved.
The sats indication is correct but it is not displayed always. (Probably you have two or more entry loops and only one refreshes the sats window the other don't.
There is also wrong number of connected sats and the Current Data Sentence is not always displayed.
Sorry I had some things going on the past couple of days. I'll be hitting this up again tonight. :)
Work has been more hectic than usual so I haven't been able to get much done. I'll be working on it over the next 3 days though :)
This looks madd cool,,, Ill be using it tomorrow...
I have a permanent connection through Verizon, and I have my system running good.
OK, no problem. Take your time...
Just to let you all know, I am still working on this. Seems I broke my source code... lol thought I had it backed up, but apparently not. I'm working to fix things. I'll keep you posted...
