New safety features
When preparing any route, one of the key components is knowing the depth of an area. Safety Route Planning feature allows you to configure the settings of your boat's height and width so that when preparing a route you can know in the simplest of terms if the route is safe or not. As you can see in the first image below, the green color code indicates that the selected route is safe, however, the red indicates that you will need to find an alternative route.
However well you may have planned out your route, it often only serves as a guideline as and when you end up straying from the path. This is why the Security Cone is so important. Configure in your settings the parameters of what you want your Security Cone to detect and be told in advance when a potential hazard presents itself. The alarm will alert you in real time and save you from disaster.
A route wizard is displayed when a route is created offering a calculation for the optimal route based upon tides and currents (optimal departure time, arrival at high tide, etc.)
