Tip for iOS and Auto-NMEA

Occa­sio­nally, Logbook on the iPad has dif­fi­culty con­nec­ting to the LogbookNMEA con­nect app when Auto-NMEA is star­ted. You will get an error mes­sage that the app is not set up correctly.

In this case there is a simple solution:

  1. Acti­vate the split screen mode of the iPad and show the app LogbookNMEA con­nect in addi­tion to Logbook.
  2. Now start Auto-NMEA and wait until the start entry is entered.
  3. After that you can show Logbook in full screen mode again.

Important note about the update of the app LogbookNMEA connect (iPad)

Occa­sio­nally it can happen that the App LogbookNMEA con­nect does not work cor­rectly after an update. The solu­tion is quite simple:

  1. Write down your set­tings (sources) in LogbookNMEA con­nect.
  2. Delete the app com­ple­tely from your iPad.
  3. Reload the app from the App Store.
  4. Set up the sources again.

Now LogbookNMEA con­nect should work as usual.

Important note about the installation of Logbook Suite for Windows

During the instal­la­tion of Logbook Suite for Win­dows all virus scan­ners must be com­ple­tely deac­ti­va­ted – even the inter­nal virus scan­ner of Win­dows 10/11. Virus scan­ners change the data­base files of Logbook Suite during the scan so that they become unusable.

Important note for the simul­ta­neous use of a USB con­nec­ted NMEA device with Logbook and a navi­ga­tion software:

With USB con­nec­tions, in most cases it is not pos­si­ble to acti­vate devices that are alre­ady used by a navi­ga­tion pro­gram also for Logbook, because the navi­ga­tion pro­grams occupy the port of the device per­ma­nently and do not release it for other programs.

Important note for Logbook Suite on Mac

To use Logbook Suite on Mac it is important to avoid that the Logbook Suite data folder moved to iCloud Drive. Saving the files auto­ma­ti­cally in iCloud Drive can cause pro­blems with Logbook Suite – inclu­ding file cor­rup­tion. This is because the auto­ma­ti­cally wri­ting of opened files to the cloud col­l­i­des with the way data­base-based appli­ca­ti­ons auto­ma­ti­cally save the ent­ries.
MacOS Cata­lina by stan­dard copies the users Docu­ments folder to iCloud Drive. The­r­e­fore the data folder “Logbook Suite” is loca­ted directly in the top level of the user folder and not inside of the docu­ments folder.

Logbook Suite: Installation

Note for the installation of Logbook Suite for Windows

Please note that on Win­dows com­pu­ters you only can make ent­ries in data­base soft­ware from accounts with administrator’s right. The­r­e­fore it is neces­sary that you install Logbook Suite with an account with all admi­nis­tra­tor privileges.

Nevert­hel­ess, with some Win­dows instal­la­ti­ons the admi­nis­tra­tor account hasn’t got all rights that are requi­red for the use of a data­base soft­ware. This is par­ti­cu­larly the case for com­pu­ters with addi­tio­nal accounts. You may reco­gnize that every time Logbook Suite is star­ted, a mes­sage is shown, that an update of the data files has been exe­cu­ted, even when not­hing has been updated.

In this case there is a rather simple solution:

  • Start Logbook Suite using the con­text menu of the pro­gram and select “Run as administrator”.
  • Alter­na­tively you can set up the link to the pro­gram Logbook Suite thus the soft­ware auto­ma­ti­cally gets always the admi­nis­tra­tor pri­vi­le­ges. In the con­text menu choose the entry “Pro­per­ties”, click the “Short­cut” tab, then on “Advan­ced” and acti­vate the “Run as Admi­nis­tra­tor” check box. To finish click OK.
  • In some cases, in addi­tion to the step above the access rights of the data­ba­ses con­tai­ned in the pro­gram folder of Logbook Suite (the files with exten­sion fmp12) need to be manu­ally chan­ged to full access.
  • If the access rights of the data­base files in the pro­gram folder were not cor­rect, you should also check the access rights of the files in the data folder of Logbook Suite (the folder “Logbook Suite” is in the top level of your boot drive). Cor­rect the access rights of this files if neces­sary, too. Remove all backup files which have been crea­ted during your attemps to start Logbook Suite.

 

Note for the use of USB connected NMEA data sources under Windows

With USB con­nec­tions it is in most cases not pos­si­ble under Win­dows to acti­vate devices that are alre­ady used by a navi­ga­tion pro­gram also for Logbook, because the navi­ga­tion pro­grams occupy the port of the device per­ma­nently and do not release it for other pro­grams.
Some navi­ga­tion pro­grams offer a vir­tual port split­ter that allows the port to be used by two pro­grams. If not, addi­tio­nal soft­ware is requi­red.
This pro­blem does not exist for WLAN connections.

Receiving GPS data on iPad

In order for Logbook will be able to receive GPS data on the iPad, you need to have acti­va­ted the Loca­tion Ser­vices for Logbook Suite and for LogbookNMEA con­nect in the Set­tings app of the iOS.

To trans­fer navi­ga­tion data from the iPad’s built-in GPS or from an NMEA data source, you need our free iPad app LogbookNMEA con­nect. This app estab­lishes the con­nec­tion bet­ween Logbook and the GPS or the instruments.

Please note, before you can receive data, you need to setup the appro­priate data source in LogbookNMEA con­nect. For more infor­ma­tion, read the Logbook manual.

Update to Logbook Suite 2.5

Download the update for existing Logbook licenses

If you alre­ady own a PC license for Logbook for Mac or Win­dows, you can simply down­load the new ver­sion of Logbook Suite for your ope­ra­ting system from your 2K Yacht­ing Shop account wit­hout fil­ling out the down­load form again.

To down­load the instal­ler from your shop account select at “Instant down­loads” the down­load button that is dis­played next to your Logbook PC license. All other down­load but­tons do not have an instal­ler because they are valid for all plat­forms.
Just ignore the ver­sion number that is dis­played in your account! For all ver­si­ons of Logbook the down­load button is linked to the latest instal­ler of Logbook Suite. All updates are for free.

The update for iPad can be loaded from the Apple App Store as usal.

Update existing data files to Logbook Suite 2.5

When instal­ling Logbook Suite 2.5 your data files from older ver­si­ons of Logbook Suite are auto­ma­ti­cally updated. Howe­ver, the auto­ma­tic update affects only files with default file names in the default data folder, other files need to be updated manu­ally to ver­sion 2.5.

If you have alre­ady used an older ver­sion of Logbook (Logbook ver­sion 2.0 or newer) or Logbook Suite, you can open your files from Logbook and the Add-ons crea­ted in the older ver­sion of the soft­ware also with Logbook Suite 2.5. But the file will only pro­vide the func­tions of the ori­gi­nal ver­sion of the program.

After instal­ling Logbok Suite 2.5 you can import your old data files into Logbook Suite so all the new fea­tures will be available. 

The fol­lo­wing ins­truc­tions explain all the neces­sary steps on the PC or the iPad.5

Automatic update of older data files on PC

If you want to update older data files (Logbook mini­mum ver­sion 2.0, Add-ons all ver­si­ons) to the cur­rent ver­sion of Logbook Suite, you can do this very easily using the auto­ma­tic updating function.

  • Copy your data files from older ver­si­ons into a folder. All files need to use the stan­dard file names and the exten­sion .fmp12. If neces­sary, you should edit the file names using the Finder or the Explo­rer before start­ing the func­tion. Please note that all files need to be closed when per­forming the update.
  • In Logbook Suite Mana­ger choose the button More… and then the button Import data from 3.7 or older.
  • When you have sel­ece­ted your folder the update pro­cess is star­ted. After a few secu­rity mes­sa­ges, the data from the old ver­si­ons are impor­ted into the files of the the cur­rent ver­sion of the cur­rent ver­sion of Logbook Suite.

A step-by-step ins­truc­tion for a manual updating is pro­vi­ded in User Manual Logbook Suite Basics.

Automatic update to Logbook Suite on iPad

Using the button Import data from 3.7 and older from the menu of the button More… of the Logbook Suite Mana­ger you can per­form an auto­ma­ted update of your data from older ver­si­ons (Logbook mini­mum ver­sion 2.0, Add-ons all ver­si­ons) to the cur­rent verion of Logbook Suite. Please note that all files should not use the stan­dard file name and should be closed while per­forming the update.

  1. Copy the old data file to Logbook Suite.
  2. In the Logbook Suite Mana­ger tap the button More… and then the button Import data from 3.7 and older.
  3. In the popo­ver choose from the first list which module you want to update.
  4. Then select from the second list the file con­tai­ning the data to be impor­ted from. The list con­ta­ins all files stored in Logbook Suite except the default files.
  5. Tap­ping the button Update starts the import pro­cess of the data.

Because of the file system on the iPad, the update must be exe­cu­ted one by one for each file. 
A step-by-step ins­truc­tion for a manual updating is pro­vi­ded in User Manual Logbook Suite Basics.

Logbook: NMEA function

Test your NMEA connection with Logbook on PC

While Logbook is in demo mode and there are less then five days in the logbook, you can test the NMEA fea­ture for PC and iPad. We stron­gly recom­mend to test the NMEA con­nec­tion bet­ween Logbook and your equip­ment before purcha­sing the PC NMEA License. The con­nec­tion should work with all NMEA and GPS devices that are con­nec­ted to the PC using USB, Bluetooth or WiFi. Nevert­hel­ess there could be some devices on the market that are not com­pa­ti­ble with Logbook.

We are very gra­teful for any feed­back – regard­less of whe­ther the con­nec­tion is working or not!

Test your NMEA connection with Logbook on the iPad

While Logbook is in demo mode and there are less then five days in the logbook, you can also test the Logbook NMEA func­tion for iPad. Once you have crea­ted more than five days, the fea­ture is only available if you have ente­red a NMEA serial number for iPad.

The fol­lo­wing list shows the hard­ware, for which the app pro­vi­des preset con­fi­gu­ra­ti­ons.
If you want to use a hard­ware that is not listed, please cont­act our support.

List of Devices supported in NMEA function for iOS

Hardware tip for NMEA connection of Logbook

We have tested some WiFi mul­ti­ple­xers in prac­tice and can give you a very spe­cial recom­men­da­tion here:

Small, easy to install and fully com­pa­ti­ble with Logbook:
the NMEA 2000 WiFi Gate­way YDWG-02 von Yacht Devices.
The device is less than 6 cm long and has a dia­me­ter of only 20 mm. Tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion can be found here:
http://www.yachtd.com/products/wifi_gateway.html.

From now on you can also buy this gate­way directly from us in our online shop:
https://shop.2k-yachting.de/hardware/yacht-devices/yacht-devices-nmea2000-wifi-gateway-ydwg-02.
The sel­ling price is 249,00 €. We deli­ver free of ship­ping costs.

YDWG Gateway

We also have had great expe­ri­en­ces with the GoFree Wifi‑1 Modul from Navico (Simrad, B&G, Lowrance) during our tests. This is available in nearly every well sorted ship supply store.

Please also note the tip on set­ting up the GoFree con­nec­tion. 

Troubleshooting: NMEA data retrieval does not work or is too slow

Incor­rect set­tings in dialog Default, GPS/NMEA can cause that no data trans­fer is pos­si­ble or that it takes a long time until the data are ente­red in Logbook. The­r­e­fore in the dialog Default, GPS/NMEA only the opti­ons for the data that really can be recei­ved should be enab­led. Other­wise Logbook will wait for unavailable data until the time­out. This applies par­ti­cul­lary to the option iPad Pres­sure, which should be acti­va­ted only if the iPad has an inte­gra­ted baro­me­ter. In the app LogbookNMEA con­nect, which is used for the data retrie­val, you also need to setup and acti­va­ted the source iPad baro­me­ter in addi­tion to the source for recei­ving the navi­ga­tion data. We recom­mend to use the option Use time from iPad only if the NMEA data source of the ship net­work does not pro­vide a relia­ble UTC value. 

Troubleshooting: Aborts of NMEA data recording via Auto NMEA (iPad)

The Logbook Suite com­mu­ni­ca­tion app LogbookNMEA con­nect from ver­sion 2.3 on can detect and ignore errors in the NMEA data so that the data is passed to Logbook wit­hout errors. This is espe­ci­ally hel­pful when using the Auto NMEA func­tion, because NMEA data errors could lead to aborts of the data trans­fer to Logbook.

If there are still aborts during the data recor­ding with LogbookNMEA con­nect 2.3, you can use the option Vali­date (in the set­tings of your source) to acti­vate a second step of error correction.

Tip: Setting up the GoFree connection in the app LogbookNMEA connect

With the latest iOS updates, the Bon­jour pro­to­col, which is used for the auto­ma­tic detec­tion of GoFree, has been updated seve­ral times. Howe­ver, since GoFree still uses an old ver­sion of the pro­to­col, the inter­face is no longer reco­gni­zed correctly.

This can be reme­died by manu­ally set­ting up the source. Pro­ceed as follows:

  1. On your plot­ter go to the plot­ter con­fi­gu­ra­tion page. Look for the IP of the plot­ter, which is also dis­played here. Write this down.
  2. Open the app LogbookNMEA con­nect and choose Source, Edit, Add source.
  3. Choose NMEA over IP.
  4. Make the fol­lo­wing settings.
    • Pro­to­col: TCP
    • Host: IP of your plot­ter (it is shown on the info screen of your plotter)
    • Port: 10110
  5. In the top you can give this source a name, for exam­ple GoFree manu­ally.
  6. If you now acti­vate the source, data should be dis­played in the blue field.

Important note for owners of chartplotters with WiFi

Unfort­u­na­tely, the plot­ters from Ray­ma­rine, Furuno and Garmin don’t stream the stan­dard NMEA data via the inte­gra­ted WiFi. The WiFi only sends spe­ci­ally pre­pared infor­ma­tion for the own-brand apps in a vendor-pro­prie­tary, non-public data format. Unfort­u­na­tely the manu­fac­tu­re­res are not inte­res­ted in releasing the inter­face for use by third-party software. 

This is why you need to have instal­led a NMEA mul­ti­ple­xer with WiFi func­tion in your ship net­work to access the NMEA data from any other device or application—even if you use a plot­ter with wire­less LAN function.
