Will the maps I bought for StrePla-1 and -2 also be shown in the Version 2?

 

No matter how many maps you bought in the past, the update fee will be EUR 79,--. However, in addition to the program, you need to download all DCW vector maps anew.

I updated from the OEM to the StrePla-2 full version. Can I also update to StrePla3?

Yes, there is no difference between a customer who bought StrePla-2 directly and an upgrade from OEM- to full version. That means:

  • If you have upgraded after the 15th October 2002, you will receive a complimentary StrePla3 update.
  • If you upgraded before the 15th October, the fee will be EUR 79,-- independent of version and number of maps bought.

Please use the order form.

How can I print my screen?

Do you want to print the current data but StrePla3 doesn't support your wishes? No problem, use the windows function for printing screen content. It is described in the following paragraph.

There is a key labelled Print or PrtSC on your keyboard. This key is usually in the top right-hand side of the keyboard. With this key you can copy the complete screen content or the active window. The active window is the window with the blue title bar.

To copy the complete screen content:

  • Press on Print.
  • Open a program that is able to represent graphics. For example WORD, EXCEL, PAINT, Paint Shop Pro, CorelDraw or similar.
  • Click on Edit and Insert in the document window in order to insert the picture in the document.

To copy the active window:

  • Press on ALT+ Print.
  • Open a program that is able to represent graphics. For example WORD, EXCEL, PAINT, Paint Shop Pro, CorelDraw or similar.
  • Click on Edit and Insert in the document window in order to insert the picture in the document.

I can not find my logger type in direct communication

At the moment only the following devices can directly communicate with StrePla:

  • Volkslogger
  • LX20, Posigraph, Colibri, LX5000 >6.0
  • LX5000 Firmware <6.0
  • Cambridge
  • GARMIN

The other loggers are handled via import and export.

We from StrePla2 would like to be able to connect other loggers directly, because we think that this is the best way for our clients. Unfortunately the manufacturers need to write a part of a program here. (Similar as the printer manufacturers who deliver drivers with their printers). As the only manufacturer, the company Garrecht with their VOLKSLOGGER has taken on our opinion.

You can still use all other devices. Not quite as comfortable.

Use the manufacturer's own communication program to transfer the files from the device to your hard drive. Then start StrePla and point to File.Import and proceed the way it is described in the manual in the chapter Import. To export, proceed in the reversed order.

I don't have any airports in my maps after the installation.

We treat airports as turnpoints. That's why they are not installed with the maps. You can easily select airports under File.Import.Turnpoints and Routes; and then in the directory ...\My own files\strepla2\Welt2000.wgs.

Did you see the filter in the bottom left corner? The button with the label "F" (as in Filter) can be used for quick filtering. If you deactivate the turnpoints there, you will not see them anymore either.

My info windows have disappeared.

If you click on the cross in the top right-hand corner of the info window, it will disappear. This is the normal procedure when closing a window in Windows.

If you want to make the window visible again, point to View.Info windows in StrePla and choose Info window 1, 2 or 3.

My mouse is making strange movements on the screen after starting up.

You logger was probably connected to the serial port during booting.

When booting, Windows checks the ports. If it finds a device there (your logger), it may assume it is a mouse and will install a mouse driver for this port. So always disconnect the logger during booting. This problem can not be solved by StrePla.
