New for Weather4D

The last update of the three applications Weather4D (Lite, Routing, Routing & Navigation) several user-requested improvements in the display of meteograms. But what is less obvious is a big work on the charts display in the Routing & Navigation, to better streamline the tiles overlay at different scales, during handling of zoom and slide, and to remove “black areas” sometimes subsisted on less efficient old generation devices.

Regarding the display of data, changes include :

  • Display time of arrival and departure on the meteogram (Routing, R&N)
  • Display of arrival time and distance in "Simulation and Routing" (Routing, R&N)
  • Display directions (wind, waves and currents) and periods (waves) on the meteogram (All)
  • Date display in full screen mode (All)
  • Adjustable units to the direction of waves and current (All)

Added to this is, as usual, some bug fixes and various cosmetic improvements.
