Distance and Planning Improvements



  • "Distance and Planning" (D&P) is less useful than it could be. I use it to plan sailing races. It is better than nothing but has serious shortcommings which create a lot of work better done in software:

    1. There isn't access to wind direction and velocity along the track when in D&P mode,
    2. Opening a second instance to get wind vectors only works with two displays i.e. can't do with tablet.
    3. Integrating the information is made more difficult by the LAT & LON formats being different. The D&P uses fractional degrees and the wind mode uses degrees and fractional minutes. It is further complicated by many external tables using degrees, minutes and seconds.
      Suggestions;
    4. Allow user to choose angular formats.
    5. Allow wind information flags to be displayed in D&P" mode.
    6. Allow frozen wind information flags to include time in D&P mode.
