Category: Main Special Purpose SeaClear SeaClear II


This is the latest version of SeaClear, intended more for recent systems running Win 2K/XP, I believe.

There are 2 earlier versions of SeaClear, as well:

"SeaClear for Windows 95 up", which I have also tested and run.

"SeaClear for Windows 3.x", which I have not tested or run.


The SeaClear applications which I have tested and run also come with a small application named "Map_Cal" which is used to create calibrated map/chart images, and for setting which directories the SeaClear application will check/use for charts when displaying real-time position using a GPS.

What works

Note: These applications work best with MS True Type fonts.

The main application, "SeaClear", works perfectly with my hardware.

Included with the download of SeaClear is an adjunct application, "MapCal_2", which also works perfectly.

Currently, I have a Magellan SporTrak Pro handheld GPS connected via serial to my Dell Inspiron 4000 laptop. I have used other hardware (both GPS and PC) combinations with this application with equal success in the past running under Windows, using different versions of both the application and the OS, with great success. It is an extremely functional application, free as in beer, which competes with other Windows apps costing into the hundreds of dollars...

As this application works so well under WINE, I am interested to see if the hardware compatability demonstrated before remains with the application on Linux.

Additional Comments

The application will work fairly well with the default WINE fonts, but to get it working *perfectly* ('Platinum' level), install Microsoft True Type Fonts into the "c:\windows\fonts" directory which is created by WINE at install. To get these fonts using a Debian-based distro, use apt to install the "msttcorefonts" package. Once installed, you can then copy the fonts from your "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts" directory into the "c:\windows\fonts" directory. Using rpm packages, I think the package name is "msttfonts". If an rpm user can verify this, that would be helpful. :)

HowTo / Notes

Aug 3, 06 - Update

Thanks to Olle, the SeaClear developer, we've resolved all issues with this application.

The fix was to have MS True Type fonts installed. Once this is done, SeaClear works perfectly under WINE. :)


Thank you, Olle!!! :D
