The more is, could this setting could be dangerous? It just occurred to me but I'm not much on Routes...

I mean where it really mattered I'd be painfully following it but it's the blythe bird I'm afraid for...

Re: OpenCPN Release Candidate 3.3.2430 Released

I am still puzzling over this new feature....In this instance I could just make my arrival radius larger IE as in safety radius (=from any direction of arrival to any departure towards the next wpt....which this drawing fails to show as in lines drawn tangent from every wpts arrival circles...) for the same result with ARRIVAL ON. Of course it doesn't allow for the option of passing outside an arrival radius...the next wpt WILL be actvated early every time....but does this matter? given some forethought to the route in the first place. hmmm

OK I'll stop. I'm not a router anyways. Just one more the same revised a bit to show effect of "safety zone" tangents drawn where arrival radius is modified ..and maybe show some practical difference between Arrival On or arrival Off Click image for larger version

..which I am not sure of. Why have route if it's not "followed"?
one thing is interesting to me is that the green line-maybe a real boat- has a track that has a closest approach well past the active wpt ...oh well.

Re: OpenCPN Release Candidate 3.3.2430 Released

Ok Dave et al, here is another odd behavior. I have my AP providing HDG info for the radar overlay. It mostly works, but periodically looses the heading info. If I have the nmea monitoring window open, i can see the hdg sentence go past, often several times, before OCPN "notices" it and corrects the heading again. Sometimes 10 sec or more without correct display.
This seems to be more noticeable when stationery, like at my berth. I guess because, if moving, it has the gps data as well for heading info. Suggestions??
Thx
Matt

Re: OpenCPN Release Candidate 3.3.2430 Released

Happy Seagull, I like this "Shipping Lane" idea, and would add a couple of others. The illustrations are pretty good.

A. Safety zone" tangents drawn where arrival radius is modified ..and maybe show some practical difference between Arrival On or arrival Off.

B. Fat Route Lanes. A Wide route.

C. WP -Use of Arrival Radius and Use of offset distance from bouy.
