My Places – Navigation
This option is available through Maps. You need to register first to be able to access Maps and all information regarding my favorite places.
If you choose to take weather forecast data by choosing any favorite places saved in My Places, then there is a great saving of data usage, as the map is not opened again to make the site selection.
Furthermore, the application remembers the last weather forecast and you can still see it even if there is no internet access. After six hours the Marineforecaster® application will automatically renew the weather forecast for your last search, providing there is an active connection to the internet and will continue to do so every 6 hours until you close the application.
You have the possibility of sliding your finger from right to left on the name of the place that you saved, a delete button appears (“Delete”) before you can delete it from the list.
In the menu “Maps” application has the following options:
- Button for exporting My Locations in CSV Pressing the CSV button to send email triggered to anyone we want recipient, even so, our email, with attachment in CSV file for further editing or sharing with others. The file contains the name, the coordinates and the date it was to save to the file.
- Button for weather for marine weather forecast for this place we have stored.
- Button with a map. This option gives us the opportunity to use our device and with the use of GPS that each mobile device uses to navigate to where you have saved. When pressed on the map it shows the world map application with 4 different indications:
a)The point I am at this moment, on the map
b)My favorite spot on the position marked with a pin
c)An indication in units chosen through settings option of the distance that separates us from our position at this time to our favorite spot. The two points connected by a line between them. Each position change increases or reduces the distance between the two points.
This option was created to mark in it the fishing places we use for snorkeling, long lines, nets or simply to mark a point that we want to return to again in the future.
The Navigation Application has other uses, such as the possibility, after some disaster of the onboard navigational equipment, we can mark on the map the place where you want to sail by saving it use the navigation option of the application to get there. In other cases, an absolute knowledge of the cruising area and shallow is needed.
