Terry..

I hope Greg also remembers to add distance between the waypoint as well as total sailed distance.

And to make manual photo entries possible as an option. Having altered the original date/time/location of a photo,it still can not be entered.

Terry.

Greg explained to me that Bungee uses the last modified data/time to activate the photos of an imported track. The use of Bungee pre-supposes that there will be no change in the downloaded photo since it was snapped. I find this very impractical as you quite often wish to modify/enhance a photo,after which it becomes un-readable in Bungee.

As there is no way to override this in order to insert the original date/time of the photo,it will not match the corresponding waypoint and Bungee just creates an error message.

I think Bungee should follow the ORIGINAL data/time of the photos rather than the last changed data/time in order to avoid a lot of time consuming date/time alteration which in some cases can destro the photo making it un-readable.

Globalstar SPOT's Adventure module for example has two optional ways of importing the photos. One is automatic,where the original,existing data/times are used,the other a manual insertion of the photo icon using the mouse to drag it into the required position.

Another point I mentioned to him is a feature to display the direction,speed and waypoint number of each leg by the use of a mouse over movement,similar to that in OCPN.
