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.lburgau303 commented
I too would like to be able to measure distances between points so I could estimate my gas needed to make a trip, and then use this information to develop a rout. Seems like they could work hand in hand. I need to know distances because I have to travel across large areas of open water where fuel is unavailable.
Good call Chris. Looking into it.
A great idea – makes a lot of sense. There’s a number of ways we might approach this. Where this item is, in the list of things to do is unclear, but we’ll start thinking about it. As an fyi, we’re working on user accounts such that boaters can create and edit waypoints & routes on either their mobile device or their desktop computer (via our Online Viewer) and then have it all be sync’d automatically. We’re also working on nexrad radar weather animation. We’re close.
