Well that makes sense! Thanks, I didn't notice that.
I unchecked all the CPA/TCPA boxes on the right side because I don't need duplicate AIS alarms, but I didn't realize the "suppress" box would continue to have relevance. I guess I should have realized, since it wasn't greyed out.
I, too, have learned to totally ignore any of the manually entered status and destination
information because of its inaccuracy. I've seen a lot of ships who reported their destination
as "Philadelphia" who were headed the wrong direction. Their GPS
SOG and COG data do not lie, so I pay attention to that instead.
In the screenshot, I hadn't noticed the black dot on the icon indicating that it was supposedly moored. I totally noticed the 1 nm long 5 minute predictor vector, indicating a speed of about 12 kts. That's much more important (and accurate) in most cases.
I'll change uncheck the "suppress" box on the left side.
