Title: slight problem, need a little help
Thread Modes
#1
We have a race using fixed points each Thursday night.

This was the first time i used INAVX on my IPAD. It worked great, but...

every 30-60 seconds it would recenter the map on the boats position, and i could not see the way-points i had designated as the finish line. Our finish is between 2 channel markers, and seeing as i could only follow the vector to the mark I designated as the finish. I sailed to the wrong one, (basicly i was trying to go between the wrong 2 markers) It cost me 5 sec and I ended up as second place. I am not upset about the second place. (better than i have ever done)

My question:
how do i keep the map from re-centering on the boat every min or so, also even when we would scroll the map out to show the entire course leg it would zoom back in.

these are the settings i i have active in instruments, and on the chart page

instruments:

Vessel Name
Digital Only
BSP
BTW
COG
DTR
DTW
DWN
HDT
SOG
TDD
WPN

on the chart screen these are the settings:

Hi Harry,

Have you tried changing the first setting ("Pos. Icon Loc.") to "None"?

While the position icon location is set to "Ctr", the chart will periodically center the boat's current position as you described.

Hope this helps!
Jon
