I wouldn't discount using heel as a performance parameter, as you start to understand where your optimal speeds and angles are, heel is a good indicator of wind weight, too much heel = too much power and leeway etc, too little heel not enough power etc.

I've never met a 'True' hand bearing compass...

Your best bet would be to contact CMAP directly, they are very responsive.

Install on the new PC and request a replacement key. Copy over your settings from the Data folder etc.

Depending on chart type, copy these across seperately.

I suspect our language is not that far apart, but Splashtop doesn't appear to require the internet to work in a boat situation; it only requires that spanning networks.  It does require the boat LAN to be working - assuming the remote device and the host are on the same LAN, as would typically be the case ... I think.Correct me if I'm missing something.
I'm not technical enough to think through the ramifications of having them on different networks in the same boat .... my head hurts.

It does if you are using android.

Hey Duncan / Zee Zee,

I am not sure that I understand your problem correctly and I may be off base here but this may be an answer to your problem using Spashtop when out of contact with the internet.
I always use Splashtop in a "closed network" or "local mode" (that is, never on the internet) using a tiny TP-Link usb-powered router as an access point.
1) Set up the router and put the boat's PC and the tablet on that network.
2) If you are logged in to Splashtop on the internet
3) log out then
4) click the underlined text in the lower right of the screen used to enter your Splashtop account then
5) follow the prompts.  
You may need to set up a local password to access the boat's PC on the local network but you can set the app up to remember it so that you will be quicker to get back in after the link has been broken. 

No problem for an iPad, but Andriod splashtop does not allow local mode/closed network.

Thanks for your clarity ZZ, it is a pity Mr MS and his/her elves were not so clear!
We (i.e.me) have -after 3 days of racing - decided that Splashtop is The Way to Go.  As a bonus, one may have windows on both remote and host open.
And now the kicker .. as Splashtop relies on having an internet connection to validate the joining, what happens when internet doesn't work because it is over the horizon?
Cheers

That is a limitation of splashtop....iirc not on iPad.

Agree with Cambell.
I use a W10 laptop for Exp and an Android tablet or phone running the Microsoft remote desktop app.  This is a super stable configuration.
From the various apps I tried I by far prefer the MS remote desktop app as it gives you the better 'touch screen'  feeling.  Only disadvantage is that as soon as you take over the desktop on the tablet,  the PC gets logged.  Next time when you are in the nav station and want to use the PC itself you have to login again.  
 

I use a simple password, I.e. 1, or a, or q etc, then it's just two keyboard presses...

It is most probably a router issue - what are you using to create the wifi network? here is what I would try:

1. Try a different wifi channel
2. Try 2.4 or 5 gHz
3. Remove all encryption/security
4. Set fixed IP's for all devices

Security is not really an issue since no-one could connect to your PC without knowing your PC usename and password etc, even if they could figure out your IP address range.

The B&G and GPS are on separate comm ports? Can you verify the data is actually being transmitted?
