If the "little" red dot is small on your laptop
, you should change your resolution to a lower one (eg. making everything bigger).
The "red dot" own ship symbol is far to big when zooming out and to small when zooming in. Well, not to small, but smaller than what it should have been.
Adding two more pictures.
First at zoom 200, second at 1000.
Look at the lenght of the vessel (it,s set to 8 meters in the config)
First it reads 3,9 meters (scale 200), second it reads 15,5 meters (scale 1000).
This is totally wrong.. It should meassure the same size (with meassuring tool) no matter what scale the chart is, but it does not do so.
Look at the size of buoys and lights, these scale like they should. Own icons and own vessel does not.
Own vessel is 13mm long on my monitor
(1680x1050) no matter what chartscale i'm in.
When it comes to accuracy, I can more or less follow the land contour with maxsea
and the contour would maybe be 2 meters away from my vessels side both visually and on the chart (CM93 Aug.2011).
I would say this is accurate... But in OCPN the boat would cover the shore, due to the size of the icon.
I tried to import
many of the previous fishing
spots (marks) I had, but it got so crowdy that I had to remove them to se the chart...
and olex, no problem... Own vessel and own marks scale as they should...
I don't know another way of explaining this issue.
It has been posted a few times in flyspray as well...
If it's a bug or not... It's a greyarea... A bit of both.. Bug and feature request...
