Automatically open picture on a waypoint

Hello, I wonder if it is possible that pictures, sounds or other files automatically opens when you pass over a waypoint. no clicking on the links in the waypoints settings?

I like the idea, especially optional sounds at WP's. Having a picture automatically pop up and obscure some important area of the chart could be panic producing. How bout if you were near and a WP had something to tell you, it changed appearance (got a red circle around it) and a single click would reveal its secret (e.g. info about an upcoming trouble spot, picture of a bridge, anchorage etc) and a single click would hide the secret?

Re: Automatically open picture on a waypoint

I was thinking that when you have an route activated and a waypoint with a link gets activated as next waypoint. The link pop-up automatically. Would be great when driving passengers and you can have automatic guiding.

Two additional thots
1. "automatic" should be optional. There may be links that you don't want to be automatic.
2.Option of where where should the link window appear? Possibilities are a) next to WP but not on top of route, b) one of the 4 screen corners

Yes that would be great, personally I would like that the pop-up took whole screen, maybe you could decide the size for every single thing and save settings individually.

Re: Automatically open picture on a waypoint

Is this something you can fix by yourself, or does it need an update?
