Have been travelling in narrow passages during rather heavy old swell this season and found the (in)stability of the COG predictor (the red dashed line showing COG course) a bit cumbersome at times. I'd love to see some averaging (customizable?) settings like '0' for no averaging alternatively averaging time in seconds (up to e.g. 5 seconds).
Correct me if I'm wrong but the GOG predictor seems to be recalculated between each GPS
, e.g. once a second. In rough seas this could cause instability that could be confusing, especially if going on autopilot
referencing magnetic course.
My question is hence: Is there a setting for time averaging the GOG predictor?
