I was watching your video on OpenCPN Basic Plotting Tools and my OpenCPN does not have that range ring option when I drop a mark. The only way I can use range rings is from the boat under Settings. I have the latest version of CPN on Windows 10.

The difference seems to be that i am using the latest beta version 4.1.1108, which is also available there as a download. I just checked 4.0.0 and it does not have the range rings option.

For versatile chart work and indeed for use underway these range rings are very important. We can do a neat trick with them for interpreting radar images, for example.

Seems this will evolve into v4.2 very shortly. Thanks for pointing this out. I had not known this was one of the improvements.

David: when will the Inland Navigation Course fully transition to using Open CPN? I would like to retake the course once that happens. I took the navigation course a loooong time ago.

We have in a sense done this already. The only thing left is to make a BSB version of 18465TR. Getting closer on that each day.

By the way, to get back into the course you just need to update your webcard. Your tuition purchase does not expire.
