No Interstate or US Hwy Symbols
« on: March 19, 2016, 06:17:21 PM »
Hoping someone out there can explain this.  So i'm trying to improve my maps and make the interstates have the shield as well as the US Hwys.  Here is a sample from the mp file:
Code: [Select]
[POLYLINE]
Data0=(33.658058,-107.095794),(33.658102,-107.095731),(33.658565,-107.095055),(33.658599,-107.095006),(33.659987,-107.093034),(33.660111,-107.092855),(33.660622,-107.092119)
Label=~[0x2a]25
Type=0x01
[END]
However, as you can see in this picture from BaseCamp it doesn't seem to work:

The I-25 is shown as *25 and the US Hwy 380 is shown as +380.

Ideas?

My dictionary header has:
LBLcoding=6
Codepage=1252

Since you are using CodePage=1252, LBLcoding=6 is probably ignored and cGPSmapper is using other codes for shields, try ~[0x01] and ~[0x02] instead of ~[0x2a],  ~[0x2b]. Or remove CodePage=1252.

BTW hex code 0x2a = '*' and 0x2b = '+'

Good call; based on your suggestion I read the cgpsmapper directions.

Turns out I had to change LBLcoding=9 (left the codepage=1252 because that allows lowercase letters) then also switched my shields to ~[0x01] and ~[0x02].  I'll be updating the default dictionary that comes with the tutorial to allow for this and also adjusting the tutorial to automatically handle interstates and US Hwys.
