automatic boat position plotting

Post by sailfurther » 18 Oct 2011 17:02

Hello, I'd like to thank the developers of this program. I think it is my new favorite GRIB viewer. I was wondering if there are plans to add automatic boat positioning to the program like in Viewfax. Namely:

"You can enter your boat’s position, course and speed, and the software will advance your position as you step through the forecasts and display the forecast wind speed and direction at each step for your projected location."
