Hi Duncan, if you save the file as .txt instead of .csv then the export works well. What I mean is that it puts any multiple sails in the one column.
Cheers, Will.

Which charts are you trying to load?
I think the issue might be you downloading the iso files. These need to be decoded by a dvd emulator.
You should be downloading the zip files and extracting these to the relevant directories as described in the help file.
Cheers, Will.

I've had a bit of a look around at other Android Wear 2.0 watch alternatives. I found
1. Casio Pro Trek WSD-F20    50m https://wsd.casio.com/us/en/
2. Nixon Mission 100m (10 ATM) [url=http://www.nixon.com/au/en/smart]http://www.nixon.com/au/en/smart

Not cheap but look pretty good. Any thoughts/ knowledge of these watches?

Nice Work Shane. I don't know much about Android Wear 2.0. A couple of questions:
​I guess the connection is via Bluetooth?
​Can you have one to many: ie multiple watches receiving data?
​Are you able to send the udp via wifi if you have a wifi watch?

Thanks,
Will

Hi,
So, I am already thinking about the ''next book". I have a few thoughts:
1. A book that is a full manual about navigation which contains much of the information you need to know. It would cover fundamental navigation knowledge and techniques along with modern methods. I guess I hope it would be like the textbook for a theoretical course called Yacht Navigator Ocean. This would be at the bottom of the knowledge pyramid I was talking about earlier, so would hopefully have the widest audience.
2. A high level book about Performance Analyses and Route Planning which would include historical weather analysis techniques. (This would be right at the top of my knowledge pyramid so probably a very small audience).
3. Second Edition of the Modern Race Navigation book with new chapters and updated information in all chapters.
I am interested in what people think would work and they are interested in. So far my books have a very small market so the return on effort is not great. I was hoping that a book like number one might reach a wider audience though book two is the stuff I am really interested in.
I welcome your thoughts.
Cheers,
Will

Hi, re the audience for the new book and the difference between book one and book two: My first book is closer to the top of the knowledge pyramid. The target audience is navigators looking to improve their skills. Many readers asked for more of a 'how to' book. So this new book is targeting down the knowledge pyramid. It is for those starting out with Expedition and wanting to learn the program in some logical manner. I hope that many more people than just navigators will read the book. However, it is NOT a book about how to navigate. It is just a book about learning Expedition. Hope that clarifies.
I am trying to turn the latest book into a hard copy due to some requests. Turns out though, that I have to redo EVERY figure as the resolution is not high enough for print. If anyone has any ideas on making screen shots higher resolution, Id love to hear them. At present I think I have to buy a higher resolution 4K monitor to help sort this out. So, it might be a while till it gets done as I have some more sailing to do.
Cheers, Will.

I have recently gone over to the 4D charts for sailing in Australia and the Caribbean but still have most of the world in the old CMAP max format. I have both versions of Expedition loaded and so just open the standard version if I want to access my old charts. It seems to work fine, for now. As I upgrade my charts I will slowly switch over to 4D versions. Cheers, Will.
