Your Mom SA Posted May 16, 2016 Share Posted May 16, 2016 (edited) It looks like the App can only set scheduled maneuvers on the hour, not by the minute. Correct? It looks like the App can only schedule future maneuvers for straight lines, not TWA. Correct? When I have scheduled maneuvers on my desktop computer, and then I try to update my plan on the App, the App shows all of my pre-scheduled maneuvers with a direction of 361 degrees, so I have to start over instead of updating my original plan. Is this expected? I was doing very well in the latest leg of the Clipper race. I was among the boats that are now running in positions 4 through 10. I was in very good shape to place in the top 20 or better. I used the App to make some course changes on Saturday, but I did NOT turn Autosails off myself. On Sunday, I got back to a desk and set a careful route, and then I raced my real boat that afternoon. When I got back online that evening, I discovered Autosails had been turned off and my boat had been running at TWA 130 for 7 hours. The leaders were working to get out of the middle of a weak High, so the 20 miles I lost during that time quickly built to 30, then 40, and now it's about 80. The race is ruined. Two weeks of hard work to stay with the leaders were ruined. All because I had to use the App for one day. Does the App turn Autosails off somehow? I'm certain that I did not turn it off myself. If you add up all of these points, it seems that most of the options you can pay for are useless on the App. My conclusion is that I should NEVER pay to do a race unless I'm certain I can be at a desktop computer regularly from start to finish. This is really unfortunate because I enjoy these races and I was really enjoying this Clipper leg until this disaster.
