What is the best way to keep track of the position of the OPENROV?
Ideally I like to have a accurate method of tracking the OPENROV .
I have just bought the 2.8 and am awaiting delivery.
Can the GPS position of the laptop be tracked so at least if you seem something of interest when viewing or reviewing a video you at least have a reference point if you wish to return to have a better look, ideally with a screen overlay of the GPS position on the recorded video.
At present my best option is to use a program like Oziexplorer to keep a track of the position of the boat/laptop and reference the time on the video to the log of the time and position of the GPS Video time and Laptop time would be the same.
Oziexplorer is quite useful for seeing and recording GPS tracks and you can generate your own custom maps which can be made in such a way that GPS tracks that are only a meter apart can be made show up clearly on the map.
There may be a third party program that can do a GPS screen overlay when recording the streamed video but I am not sure if it is compatible with the 2.8 software.
What are my options ?
I am interested in search and recovery of missing persons and would like to know what areas I have searched.
Can the software keep a breadcrumb track or a map of the different areas the Rov has traveled.
Any help would be appreciated
