Re: iNavX Problems

I recommend you give these steps a try:

1) Double tap the chart anywhere to start bearing/distance measurement. A double tap (or single tap) is a common gesture with iPhone/iPad.

2) Single tap, the green circle on the chart. This tells iNavX that the origin of the measurement will be the device position. This original will then track with the changing position of the device (vessel position).

3) Drag the red circle for a bearing/distance measurement. The bearing and distance will be shown at the top of the chart. Single tap anywhere on the chart to end measuring.

I think it would be unwise to assume every distance/bearing measurement a user wants to perform originates from the device (vessel position). As such allowing the user to single tap to let iNavX know that is what the user wants does not seem unreasonable or kludgy to me, but understand such as yourself have different expectations.

Re: iNavX Problems

OK, I'll make some experiments along those lines. And report back in this thread. Thanks.

Re: iNavX Problems

In the latest version of iNavX. With iPad: As before single tapping the chart displayed a pop over menu, but now distance and bearing from the device position to where tapped are displayed as the first item.

Re: iNavX Problems

Perhaps this query merits a new thread, but it is similar to the ruler problem. I often need to make a slight adjustment to the position of a waypoint, and I find selecting the waypoint by clicking on its name really difficult. Only about one in twenty attempts is successful. I have tried press-and-hold (long click) with "long-click creates a new waypoint" switched off, but no difference. If it's left on, I finish up with a bunch of unwanted waypoints, that I then have to delete. It seems that the sensitive zone for the name is very small, and not always in the same place.

All other features work so well that I feel there must be a solution, but I can't find it.

I am using the iPad Retina, and the display is superb.

Best regards

Alan

Re: iNavX Problems

The only glitch I have come across is that if I load gribs I lose the top information bar and the only way I can get it back again is to restart the iPad.

Re: iNavX Problems

As far as turning off the GRIB display, either set the forecast date to none or from the forecast page select the GRIB again and tap the "X" button.

Re: iNavX Problems

OK I must be less than smart because I can't figure out how to add more charts to my INavX. Specifically Grenada and SVG. I have a X-Traverse account but just don't understand how to make it work. I also can't use the Tiled Charts. What am I missing?

Re: iNavX Problems

It's working now thanks for your help. In case anyone else is slow like me, you have to buy charts directly from X Traverse before they show up in the INavX "Add more charts" area. You can not buy them from the INAVX app. This includes the "Tiled Charts" also.
