Here's a hypothetical situation;
I'm NOT using OCPN as a direct chart plotter.
I'm working with NOAA Chart 12270 (on OCPN) and setting a "Route" between buoy R "84" to R "84A".
When I use "measure" to see the compass
direction it says "008" degrees. The figure of 008 degrees doesn't take into consideration the Variation of 11 degrees West. The correct compass
course would be 19 degrees.
How do I reconcile this so that if the Route
was followed by using a compass I'd reach my destination
of buoy 84A?
Is there a way to automatically add compass "variation" into OCPN?
