I am using OCPN 4.6.1 and tried last cruise
to use the logbook plugin with the automatic timer, auto distance and auto course triggers set.
Made following observations which I am not sure if its a bug or just some settings I missed to adjust:
1. SOG data come from GPS
and show a ever changing value of 0.01 - 0.3 kt even when not moving!(Have now verified thsi also when at home on land) Sounds to me like no damping is on the calculation from the coordinate changes.
2. When I loose the GPS
signal a 00.00.00 coordinate pair is received and in the logbook this gets interpreted as some useless distance traveled. When correct signal returns same value is again added to the log.
Has anyone else observed this behavior? - I think it is a bug in the calculation of the distance traveled, as obviously useless coordinate pairs should be ignored. (I shall try to attach a screenshot)
3. I noticed the option to hold many crew members and have only the onboard ones visible. Would be nice to have also many boats in some database/file. Also for the crew list an entry for skipper license
nr etc and SRC details owuld be great as in Europe
such data are typically required - shall I add this 2 requirements as a feature request?
