||PIC32MX170F256B-50I/SP programmed for the Micromite-based Touch-screen Boat Computer [BoatComputerFullV7.hex]|
A 32-bit PIC microcontroller in 28-pin DIP programmed for the GPS Boat Computer. This includes the Micromite software as well as the TFT LCD configuration, with the Boat Computer BASIC program pre-loaded.
Version 7 improvements: Added altitude readout as described in Circuit Notebook, August 2020.
Version 6 improvements: Changed the 'speed' variable to a float to improve Km/h accuracy.
Version 5 improvements: Fixed a small issue related to drawing the blue border which only affects Micromites running MMBasic V5.2. Note that BoatComputerFullV5.hex uses MMBasic V5.1.
Version 4 improvements: Fixed an issue that prevented selecting the SET button for some POIs.
Version 3 improvements: Fixed a bug which could cause the software to repeatedly crash and restart when creating a POI at lat/lon 0,0.
Version 2 improvements: You can now have over fifty Points of Interest. The heading indicator and POI direction indicator are now suppressed when the boat is stationary. Improved the rendering of the heading needle. Removed the slash from the numeric zero character in one of the fonts. See changelog in ZIP file for more details.
