After two and an half month sailing in the Baltic
and North Seas I can only compliment the makers of this very good navigation
I tested under Windows XP SP3 and with the CM93 chart set
1) Zooming in/out sometimes causes delays of over one minute before the next chart data set comes alive (maybe due to impatient handling of mousewheel)
2) GRIB files plugin could be set so that it automatically reopens the last (sub)file accessed
3) Tracking and Active Route
lines are the same coulor which is sometimes confusing (maybe colors could be optionally chosen)
4) In vector chart (CM93) settings from the toolbar, we can set things like SCAMIN, ATON labels, META objects etc. I cannot find a place where the definitions of these terms are explained and thus am not able to use these settings. What do they mean?
All of the above is of minor importance and safe an effective navigation
(including the use of AIS) is a joy with OCPN.
I carry the program always with me on a USB stick and gave it away to at least to twenty new users during my sailing vacation
. To my amazement I twice ran into a rather elderly skipper
who was not really computer litterate (according to himself) but happilly already a user of OCPN. Congratulations for that achievement also.
