My suggestions relate to the way I use the opencpn
in my 28' sailboat: mainly for planning, uploading routes and waypoints to a gps
that I use on the cockpit
1) printing of route
info. I print a list of route
waypoints, reporting points, bearing, distance, etc., and put in a plastic document holder. The current
route menu does not have a printing feature. Exporting to openoffice/csv would be grand.
2) Allowing the marking of some (ctrl-click, shift-click) or all waypoints when exporting to a gps
3) web page publishing/export of the dashboard info. With any cell phone
we could check the data from a bunk, for example. It could work with apache (linux) if a file is created, or an ad-hoc mini http server could be developed (for windows).
4) The measuring tool could be remapped to be used in piloting, if the bearings/distance labels and lines stay on after every click.
5) The idea of custom icons could lead to icons that are compatible to the ones used in gps devices.
6) I support the idea of fewer clicks access to properties of waypoints, route segments.
7) It would be nice to have pop-up data on track points. Right now I have to open the track properties and do a kind of binary search to get to the one I care.
You guys are doing a great job!
