First observation, the heading predictor length number is "1" every time I start ocpn
second: I don't see the line (home pc test with bluetooth gps) I do get the COG line
edit>what was I thinking... a gps
only gives a COG and no heading. But since my ship also only has a gps I even stronger want an infinite COG vector!
Third: I think I may have asked for the wrong line (not a native speaker...).
What I would like is an "infinite" COG line, after-all the COG is where the ship is going, the heading is only what you see in front of the bow... And on this infinite line I would like a marker that showes where I am in x minutes.
Because want to know if I'm sailing in the right direction to a far away point and I also want to know where I will be in 15 minutes. I can't imagine that I'm the only sailor who wants to know both without having to go to the settings menu.
