I’d like to understand my options for setting and adjusting the app’s understanding of wind direction.
What I understand so far is:
1) Immediately after the start, after some stable sailing, the app assumes you’re on Stbd, and sets the wind at 45 degrees to the stable course you’ve been on…. again, assuming you’re on Stbd.
2) You can set the wind direction manually using a compass display.
Are there any other ways to set or adjust the app’s understanding of TWD ?
There are 2 issues here for me.
1) My typical race does not start on a line that’s square to the wind, and does not start on a starboard tack close hauled course. After sailing a while, we end up on a close hauled course, but starting on Port tack (going out a channel). So…. I need some other mechanism for setting the TWD.
2) As the race proceeds, is there some way to alter the TWD to match changes in wind direction, or make corrections to the TWD being used ?
