Using the DC Tool when routing in Bluewater from GPS

When you load up a route starting at your GPS location, the new version of BWR has different output that – yet again – is not compatible with the DC converter tool. You will notice the first waypoint name is ‘GPS Posit’ – the space messes things up, so just delete it in the tool to be ‘GPSPosit’ (or anything without a space, ie ‘0’), you can do so in the text editor where the route data is displayed. When first imported you should see something like this:

And you need to end up with something like this: (note that is the editing caret not a ‘|’ character seen below)

I will endeavour to make some changes and release a new version so this is no longer necessary.

Also make sure you have read the posts on Date format and ETE format – being 2 more things in this latest version you need to be aware of to use this tool.
