Since 3 days the labels attached to the Black squares on all tracks drawn on the map do not include the usual tag ( wp / hdg / h-wp / .
Is it a Dashboard temporary bug .... or VR Message do not provide this data since that date ?

What was the meaning of the h-wp tag ?

It's both - VR no longer sends tags in the fleet message. Dashboard uses track info from the fleet message for your own boat. But VR still sends track info for your own boat including the tags in a separate message.
I'll fix this soon, in the next update.

The messages don't contain explanation of the tags but they are more or less self-explanatory.

Thanks Hardtack

For your information I saw that tag for the 1st time on my ownn track this afternnon ...... but my boatname was replaced by Me !

Still pending the meaning of the tag h-wp ... and why not all the tags used by VR ?

Thanks a lot Hardtack

I understand this topic may be hot !
Do you have an idea why VR does not transmit anymore these very useful tags ?
Is there a direct relation with the Topics island's coordinates which put in evidence that VR does apply the same rules to all of the payers !

For info ARYLLA the RORC600 winner missed buoy#2 according to accurate Dashboard tracks available on my computer(copy available)

The dashboard doesn't have access to any secret or mystical information. It simply intercepts and displays some of the data exchanged between client and server. Maybe VR has been sending more detailed tracks for a while, but now they don't. The tags were included by accident I assume.

The tags were back in the VR Message on the Tara Race ( my check at 8:30 this morning )
