Hello,


if You have an older Lowrance e. g. LMS or LCX, You can use AT5 v6 ... v 10. But the colors not ever appears as wished.

You can create test files for check color compatibility. In sample i used LMS 522 emulator with AT5 v7.
You can see the difference between IMC color and reality and adapt.


Best wishes

Last 4 colors in sample 2 - all color no.255.

Thank you Fjordfisher. And let's hope the colors match between the LMS 522 emulator and the real unit ...

No problem. Send You with shapes, so You can change it, if required (other AT5 versions).

Working as expected.

Any color over index 30 except for the 255 transparent won't work correctly on pre-Elite units.

30 can be hit or miss on some of the much older units.

On Elite, any unsupported colors draw as, I believe, fuschia.

If you keep an eye on the user manual of IMC - page 22 - there is a description, which colors are supported by Navicos NOS platform (HDS e.g.) and which colors are supported by both, the NOS and INDIGO platform.

"The following color table is split into a common color scheme that is supported on both the NOS OS
and Indigo OS and an extended NOS color scheme that is only supported on the NOS OS. Using a NOS
OS only color on an Indigo OS unit can create unexpected effects. For that reason, the color choices
in the shapefile will have an effect on the generally regarded support of the AT5 itself."

The sense is:
- test older Units (the Emulator Software is most older than latest firmware)
- replace colors/more colors for older Units.

The IMC manual can't this perform.
