  2. Port to Blackberry Playbook

    Blackberry Playbook is ready and waiting for this app. It has both GPS functionality, and a magnetometer, as well as wifi and bluetooth. Marine charts would be a big improvement. Thanks

  6. allow editing and annotating Points of Interest.

    I sail on an inland lake. All the markers and bouys are shown as POIs with no other info. I want to be able to add naming info such as the marker number and to be able to add a description.

    This is a good idea and one that we’re hopefully close to implementing with our universal ID system so that you can append comments on both the app, web-site etc… Not sure when this will happen, but we’re working on it.

  7. Add date stamp for shark locations in the awesome SharkNet app. I can't tell if a shark is moving towards or away from my local surf spot. T

    This is actually somewhat tricky as the app isn’t intended to be an early warning system for shark avoidance. There’s a whole lot of liability that we could never assume in doing. That said, the idea is intriguing…

  8. "Harden" the GUI for use on a bouncy boat/rough water

    The #1 problem I have with EarthNC use in general, is using the interface while the boat is in motion. The boat is bouncing and rocking - buttons and stuff hard hard to get at. Some of this is unavoidable (like route planning or doing stuff in "settings"), but other operations could be improved with ... I don't know ...maybe some sort of "gestural" mode.

    The biggest of these issues deals with zooming and GPS mode. So in particular - when I'm cruising on the water, I often leave the GPS *ON* (obviously), my-position-centered, and the mode where it rotates…

  9. Modify the vessel icon with line-segment extension to hint speed/direction

    It would be useful to add a line segment radiating from the current location in the direction of travel. The length of the line segment would represent the distance that would be covered in X minutes at the current speed (programmable). This way one could easily judge the time before reaching a mark or hazard, independent of chart zoom. The line segment would also serve as a better indicator of heading than the current arrow head.

    The speed and heading could be filtered to avoid erratic line segment.

    We’re working on a separate ruler function. Right now, you can drop a waypoint and select “guide me” and it will measure the nautical distance, but we recognize it could be easier. Stay tuned.

  11. give users the ability to change location icon.

    Let the user change location icon to a car, boat, or plane. Not just an arrow.

  12. give the user ability to update/change coordinates

    Once a pin has been dropped and saved, it would be nice to have the ability to change the coordinates on a pin all ready on the map.

  13. display the Positon

    Once the pin has been dropped and the name has been changed, there is no way to see the Coordinates The position could be displayed on the screen or in setup.

  14. give the ability to change pin color.

    When pin is dropped it becomes blue. I would be nice to have a couple of color options, like blue, red and green.

  15. Add a way to edit the lat/long of saved waypoints.

  16. Mississippi River

    Is there any way you could make the Mississippi River charts available at this link available in EarthNC for iPad?

  17. What Inland Rivers are included? I don't see any?

    The literature states that some USACE River charts are include. I am looking for the Arkansas, Mississippi and the Tenn_Tom and don't see them?

  19. Google Maps KMZ Import

    People send me KMZ files via email. When you click on one, you get an "Open With..." popup allowing you to open it with various apps which support it. It would be nice if EarthNC could open them, and import these files as routes.
