No, as the wind shadow follows the apparent direction, not the true one.

When thinking a bit more about it it would also be good to have a variable “apparent wind direction on opposite tack” to judge if in or out the dirty air of a boat to leeward and behind when expecting both to gybe simultaneously.

Hello,
is it possible to add a variable to Expedition showing the apparent wind direction?

On a downwind course I'd like to be able to check with a handbearing compass if we are already affected by the wind shadow of another boat parallel to windward.

Thanks!
the Open WRF is higher resolution (both temporal and spatial) than the RTOFs. But it is automatically coming together with wind data. Is there a way to run a routing with Open WRF currents but let's say ECMWF wind data / without using the Open WRF wind data?

Hello,
which current grib files (source) do you recommend for the Rolex Middle Sea Race?

Technical Q&A » Decimal places of Exp. remote channels on H5000 » 6/18/2021 1:06 am

Hello,
Is there a way to change the decimal places of the expedition remote channels that are displayed on the B&G H5000 graphic displays?
I‘m sending mark bearing via Expedition remote channel through Ethernet to the H5000 websocket.
In Expedition settings / Channels the decimal places are set to 0. Mark bearing inside Expedition is shown correctly without decimal places.
But on the cockpit displays Mark bearing always shows 2 decimal places. So for example a bearing of 200deg is shown as 200.00.
As the number gets quite long it’s scaled smaller on the display wich makes it harder to read.
2deg is shown as 2.00, which from a distance might be read as 200..
As I already set the decimal places to 0 in Expedition this might be a setting to make inside the h5000. But I haven’t found a way to change the decimal places there.
Did anybody experience the same and found a solution ?

Hello,
1) When I select "Leeway from heel and bsp" in Exp. Calculations. Which K-factor is taken?
Under "Exp Calibration" I can enter a number for Leeway in a 1x1 table. But the description below the table says "TWA across table, TWS down table" which is a bit misleading.
Is this where the K factor has to be entered?

2) If I understand correctly under Exp Calibration I can calibrate for example my BSP for heel and speed correction if my instrument system is not capable to do so.
So I filled out the table there and set it active.
I tried this in a simulation where I have Deckman running in simulation mode and DfW2Exp sending the numbers to Expedition - the closest I can get to simulate an instrument connection without being on board. I expected the Expedition BSP to differ from the DfW2Exp input BSP by the numbers in the table, but it doesn't. Is this a pure simulator issue or am I doing something essentially wrong?

Hello,
this might be an easy one to add.

So far routes can be shaded by TWS, wave height, rain, air temp and sea temp via drop down in the route drawing options.

Another helpful shading would be TWA.

Is there a way to hide the rainviewer image again once downloaded and displayed?
