LittleChay,that's my meaning too....
Wow. Interesting. I wouldn't have thought that would work. Cool.

But, I would also wonder about output to autopilot.

Basically, I'd want to have the developers weigh in on this...

Re: A Poll for The Most Popular Feature Requests

...and it brings to mind a possible request(sorry Cagney,for pooping all over this thread)...having Portable OpenCPN's...with the config in the home folder.O does work portably now but you need take two folders and put the config one in it's place( for xp,it's C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\opencpn\)...the other can be anywhere...needn't be in Prgrm Files etc.on XP.Mine isn't.

Re: A Poll for The Most Popular Feature Requests

All very good stuff but I would love to have a simple way of copying the Route Manager route detail info into another program such as OpenOffice or Excel spreadsheets to form the basis of a log. Maybe it's just me...
