This function has been designed for navigators to be able to generate routings quickly and precisely. By making playing on the various exploitable parameters, routing is studied in a very exhaustive way, helping you to make a decision wittingly. So, to go from a Point A to a point B, you can make vary:

– boat’s speed

– wind’s speed

– wind’s direction

For the wind speed for instance, you can compare the weather forecast data to the feeling you have on the water. You can decide to vary from 70% to 120% the wind’s speed.



Variables’ scan is a help for decision making in solo or crew navigation. This function helps you visualizing your routes, the obstacles and the good conditions you will meet in the days to come.
