ETA Date


I noticed that the ETA show only hours and minutes in the route dashboard. Is there any possibility to show the full ETA date/hours ?

Re: ETA date

You don't know what day you will arrive? Simple math as in hrs per day divided into time to go should answer your question. I mean if it is a very long journey, math and refiguring the actual date of arrival may be one of the more interesting things to do. Manuel plotting, every hr with position updates, sea state, wind speed and direction along with SOG are how we do coastal cruising. We feel it is impt to stay personally engaged, and alert instead of just reading data.

Re: ETA date

For sur I now when I'll arrive, I do everything on paper but it'll be good to have the full date on OpenCPN as it is on MaxSea... But if it's not possible it's not a big deal. I just wanted to now if i missed an option to do it..
