Odd temperature scale on overlay data
« on: December 30, 2018, 06:25:12 PM »
Hello, I just bought a new Helix 9 Mega SI unit.  I've been watching videos to get it set up.  The overlay data shows the temp in my garage from 1-323 degrees t.  Yes, a lower case t.  If I put the data in the box form, it reads 22 degrees F.  As I scroll through the views about 3/4 of the views show the temp in Fahrenheit.  The others show it in t.  I'd rather not use the boxes as it takes up screen space.  Not a big deal, but anyone have some insight?   Thanks, Sam

Any Chart view replaces Temp (xx)  with COG (t)  ...

COG is beneficial in showing which way the boat is navigating as compared to a 360 circle where  ...:

0/360 is due North
90 is due East
180 is due South
270 is due West


HB programmed the Chart view overlays with COG because it is common for a boater to need to know which way the boat is navigating any time the boater is using a Chart view  ...regardless if the boater can or cannot see landmarks to orient North, East, South, West  ...

Thanks.  So, am I stuck with this instead of temp on a few of my views?  Thanks for the help

The actual temp shows up in the box tho.  Switching to overlay is goes to the t units.  Seems like something isnt quite right.  Can I turn COG off?  Im not real tech savvy, but this seems odd.

Overlay data cannot be replaced nor individually shut off  ...

COG in overlay is hard coded for any chart view  ...

HB feels if you are looking at a Chart view = you need to see COG  ...

Thanks, I was a little slow on the uptake on this.  Makes sense, finally.
