I have been using OA 41909 Beta whilst sailing the last couple of days. Works great
but nevertheless a few minor observations:
1. Slider for User Interface scale factor
On my smartphone (Samsung GT S7710) precise adjustment of the slider for "User Interface scale factor" (in "Settings"- "User Interface") with your (well, my
) fingertip is very difficult when used in portrait mode. In portrait mode the slider jumps either completely to the left or completely to the right. The problem was solved
by rotating the phone
90 degrees to landscape mode (with "screen rotation" ticked in the Android settings). In landscape mode the slider worked fine. Maybe a hardware
issue on the smartphone because I found no problems on my Samsung 7.7 Tablet.
I could only try a mouse on my tablet. Left-click works O.K. and scrollwheel works O.K. for zooming in and out. Right-click and click on mousewheel terminates OA though.
3. Status bar text/background
The status bar with SOG & COG has black text on grey background. Looks good and is easy on the eyes but I found it hard to read in bright daylight conditions (on my small "dinghy with a lid" I use my smartphone in the cockpit). The easiest solution would be to stop sailing on sunny days
, the other might be to use another text/background combination (maybe green text on a black background, just as in the navigate-console?).
I'd vote for the second option. And will post this also in the Feature Requests-thread.
