Thanks, Mark, for all your helpful suggestions. I have spent some time with the new software
and have made a lot of progress figuring out all these undocumented features. Some things I've figure out -- and hope it's useful to other Triton users:
1. Time horizon on wind histogram screen (called "Wind Plot"). Can be changed between 10, 20, and 30 minutes by using the arrow keys. NOTE TO NAVICO
: would be nice to have the option of longer time horizons.
2. Magnified wind. This is pretty nifty -- it works just like you said:
To get it, you choose the Full Analogue screen, choose AWA as data. Then you toggle between Magnified Wind and a regular wind screen with the arrow keys.
NOTE TO NAVICO: Could we have the apparent wind speed in the window inside the dial besides AWA or at least instead of it?
3. There is no Magnified Wind in the regular wind screen ("Composite Wind"). NOTE TO NAVICO: let us have magnified wind here!
4. There is no Ground Wind on the Triton. Note to Navico: Please let us have Ground Wind! But you can make a pretty decent weather
screen by using the Analogue screen and putting in AWD as the main data displayed:
NOTE TO NAVICO: Could we, pretty please, have a compass rose in this screen? And Ground Wind? Ground Wind is not essential at anchor and on dock
, where this screen is most useful, since when tied to the ground True Wind = Ground Wind. But this screen would also be useful under way, and underway you will not be able to see the real compass direction of the wind if a tide is running.
