This past weekend I tried using this feature in Seaclear to tell my Simrad
TP32 to steer a route
. It does not work very well.... has anyone else tried this and did you get it to work satisfactorily?
What happens is the boat will make about a 90 degree turn towards the route
line even if the boat is only a little off. It overcorrects badly.
On a similar note, the COG display in seaclear only seems to work if the boat is making at least 3 or 4 knots.....It just goes to 0 under these speeds. My Furuno GPS
which is supplying the nav data to Seaclear did not do this... I looked at the Furuno
when Seaclear was displaying a 0 COG and the Furuno was showing the correct heading
Thanks for any input
