  1. Hello,
    La fonction de transfert des traces vers un site internet « Navigatio » semble exister. however, I cannot connect to the site. You must create an account on the Navigatio site ? comment ?
    This function would be very interesting to view your browsing after the fact on your Mac..

  2. Hello Francis
    Weather 4D will it evolve in the short term in order to offer, for example an automatic logbook, history of having an even more complete record of our navigations !
    Thank you and bravo for this blog !

    1. Yes, it's been in development since last year. Le livre de bord fera partie d’un ensemble plus vaste sur la base d’un « cloud » privé qui permettra un enregistrement automatique des données partagées associées aux traces sur une page personnalisée d’un site web. Ces enregistrements « au fil de l’eau » seront exportés à chaque connexion internet (Wi-Fi, cellular, ou Iridium GO), in real or deferred time depending on the case. We will be able to replay our cruises, analyze performance with data graphs, share tracking with loved ones, print the logbook, and many other things afterwards. A test version has already been distributed, the data sharing functions being already implemented in Weather4D Routage & Navigation.
      The development was put in place this fall due to collaboration with Virtual Regatta and development of the’application Weather4VR on the occasion of the Vendée Globe.
      However, although it is a long and complex job, we can hope for a realization by next summer.

    Sincerely. JMP
