1. The first show-stopper:
CM93, quilted, course-up, auto-follow mode with GPS (or simulator) input is broken. Discovered by Hjalmar, after testing at sea. Verified by me. Has been broken for some time, actually :whistling:
So, there will be another Beta before the RC.
2. Related question:
The averaging period for COG-up calculations defaults to 15 seconds, and may be changed by hand edit of config file. Hjalmar suggest that 15 secs is too long.
Maybe we need Toolbox edit field for this parameter. We are running out of space on Etc. panel, so I suggest to put it on the GPS page, along with the filter period.
gotta shift my bum outta this chair and onto some cold hard cockpit
so Forgive me if I thought the "Filter NMEA
and course Data" was already doing this per refresh periods COG...Maybe that needs a more explanatory label.(I only have a gps)
...There looks to be lots of room in GPS tab and it's the place I've already looked for such a thing anyways.
15 seconds is too long a time even in a sailboat and I would crank it up until I saw a bad effect per processor or display anyways.1 second is too much-I'd fear a (computer)freeze at the wrong moment.5 seconds would seem about cruising speed coastwise...I'll definitely play with it if you stick it in!
