- Apr 3, 2013Without putting words in Lynn's mouth, I would call it "Fine Tuning".The only time you would hit transmit on a stationary station after moving the map, would be to fine tune your position.I would thing that the move to center is done on transmits for that reason.That is why I turn it off!> Screen >Follow > METhis will transmit the position of ME if you hit transmit, even if the map has been moved.Robert Giuliano

Subject: Re: [aprsisce] Transmit = quick moveLee - K5DATNow on a more positive note, I took APRSIS32 in a Netbook on a road trip last fall from Virginia to Wisconsin and back, and it worked great. The genius beaconing worked well, and pre-fetched map tiles were the best free off-line map solution I could find. The big speedometer was a nice touch, too.My question is why is there a need to move when clicking transmit? When I was brand new to this program, I had just zoomed in and set my position, zoomed back out (and I must have also scrolled the map a bit so that I was not in the center). Next I clicked transmit simply to try out the capability to transmit on demand, and I got the prompt if it was OK to move ME to the center of the map. I misunderstood that it meant to center the map around my position, which made more sense to me at the time - after all I had just set a position for a fixed station, so why would I want to move it to wherever the current center of the map was? Therefore I clicked yes and was moved to the center of the map - oops.On Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 1:30 PM, Lynn W Deffenbaugh (Mr) <kj4erj@...> wrote:Move ME to Center? Yes.
Do you really want to move ME? Yes.
Did you REALLY mean to move ME? Yes.
Moving ME might not be what you want to do, are you SURE? Yes.
There is NO recovery for someone that simply clicks Yes on every question.
The real question I have is why are you clicking Transmit without the
need to move ME?
