Hi all, Hi Cvetan !

It seems that I have a problem with the black dots (changes of course)... there is a gap beetween the indication of zezo and the localisation of these dots on the map... Usualy the dots are on the border beetween 2 wind areas in the way to give you the ETA to this border and the new heading from this point...
But since few days there's a gap...

Somebody else got this problem ? is that normal ?

Thanks for your answer : )

Black dots are exact only for the 1-day simulation. They get displaced with longer predictions and with those fast boats the difference can be huge - 20 miles in the worst case.

Ok so if I don't play with the 1 day predicted track duration I have to anticipate the dots.
What about the ETA ? is it correct or do I have to anticipate also ?

The ETA is also rounded to longer intervals.

If you need exact times just place a destination 15-20 hours ahead on the 7-day track and switch to 1-day period.

It would be better to implement smaller steps for the first day of the longer tracks, but I did not think about it at the time, so it's hardwired in too much places and will require a major rewrite to fix.

The black dots seem to work for me but I can find no method of adding BLUE DOTS. I can display anybody else just by entering their boat's position, but this makes an entirely different screen. How do I enter any "friend" onto my own screen (i.e. a BLUE DOT )???

it´s not possible! It were automatic before when you could tap in your boatname...

I should probably update the documentation. But then I have some ideas to make it work again.

Hi zezo,
is there a way to get (automatically) coordinates (longitude & latitude) of black dots (in XML format for exemple)to generate a VRTOOL route for exemple.
Thanks in advance for your help.
