Re: saving wpts on OpenCN

I have been experimenting with doing some manual soundings in the river.

Interestingly I have used the MOB contrl space, as it time stamps the mark, which I think will be useful, when I criss cross earlier soundings, in this session so I can edit out the mob and turn its name to the corrected depth, without getting confused.

Unlike garmin another mob doesnt delete the first, most useful.

Tap the space bar. That will drop a waypoint where the boat is.
