The new tracking is way smart. Run a route
by using the VDR with tracking on, and using the different settings. Zoom in and you will see the feature at work
, in real time, behind the boat
, as the tracking algorithm is selecting and rejecting track points. Only points contributing to the track are allowed. If you want to see the nitty griitty code of the details have a look at navutil.cpp line 2285.
The old pure time- or distance- based options lead to huge track files, with unnecessary track points. Think time-based track, when not moving, or distance based when the track is a straight line.
I tested this feature quite a lot when JesperWe developed the whole thing, and became convinced that it does work
. Using the high setting you will get a a much better track than you, probably, ever need and a small size footprint when saving the track.
The simple interface hides a very smart feature.
But as I said, test it yourself with VDR.
