We are looking at a possible issue wrt locators not appearing on our maps with the 4214 version of CTD. We have seen issues previously and these were tracked down to having locators active on older maps whereby the locators would not display on the newer map. In the past we stopped all older locator groups and locators again appeared on our map. We believe we have done this now, but still get no locators?? It was our understanding that locators would go to all maps with an active locator group??

The previous version of sartopo did not show this issue (like version 4160), but now I cannot get it to run, instead get java errors. Also, with the new executable installer, can we still get a license key to use with the older version or we just have to wait the 2 minutes?

I have attached the error messages.

    As an update. I was able to load and start 4152. In the mean time I will try the locators with this version.

    Steve,

    Can you please clarify for me - are you using locator objects on each map (via add menu, locator), or setting up the locators via your team account and using the shared locations overlay as in https://training.caltopo.com/all_users/team-accounts/team-tracking#...)?

    Thanks,
    Julie

    Julie,The former, setting up a locator group and then sending the message with the location.  The support request had two pieces, getting locators to show up and why does version 4160 seem not to run.  As for the locators, I believe we have it figured out. When we converted to the new ctd, the sar.properties didn't always copy over to the topo.properties file, hence the sarsoft.location.aprs... property was not there.  Appears to now be working.  But 4160 isn't working (note 4152 does work).  Any ideas?Sent from my Galaxy

    Hi Steve,

    I realize there were two parts to the question, but solving one part would negate the need to figure out the other. :) Glad you were able to solve that.

    Also, I talked with the team while waiting for your answer to my question, and we are not offering support for 4160 anymore. There would be no point in going back to fix it because the answer to any question about it would be to update to the newer version. If there's a bug in the newer version then we will fix that and release an even newer one!

    Thanks,
    Julie

    Oh, it might be good to add the need for the line in the topo.properties file for fleet as well as for aprs.Sent from my Galaxy
