Re: Feature Requests

Not so easy to do this move mouse and boat to exact loc on a bouncy sea either. There are a number of uses for this feature and I'll name a few:
1. Dead reconning.
2. Testing. In particular cel_nav right now.
3. General utility. To have to create a txt file with the boat position and use vdr_pi to move the boat (which also activates a route and turns the boat red -having some other uses) or fiddle with scale and mice, when we should just be able to right click and pick Boat Properties, to set boat position along with a number of other boat characteristics (depth. beam, length overal, lwl, gps position in the boat, sail area, etc -list could be long.) That might be a logical structure, similar to waypoint properties, but for own boat.

Re: Feature Requests

Touchscreen working:

Using a touchscreen in combination with a keyboard works very well.

Moving the charts with the finger command also works. However most of the time a get the chart info page when I touch the screen. Carefully putting my finger on certain spot on the screen sometimes help.

Is there a way to separate the finger command for moving the screen and clicking on the icons on the icon bar ?
