# Feature Beschreibung Status

2Axis descriptionStats graphs need labels on the X and y axesdone - V2.25
3Engine hoursEngine hours for multiple enginesdone - V2.25
4Cumulative mileage overallCumulative mileage overall, with option to choose starting mileage or 0done - V2.25
5Multiple fontsOffer font choices on PDF output filesdone - V2.25
6Track directionAdd a possibility to identify the direction of the track drawn in the map in the exported PDFdone - V2.26
7Map picturesAdd tool to map existing images to an existing logbookdone - V2.26
8Restrict track timelyTrack in map shall be optionally restricted to a defineable timeframe instead of showing the whole logbook trackdone - V2.26
9Apple WatchSupport for watchOS 3 with complication and without glancedone - V2.26
10Overall mileageWith regard to the log of miles, what would be great is if the app gives you the running total so that you don't have to manually add it together. done - V2.26
11Autorecording to fixed timesTimely logs to full hours. E.g. all 15 min, all 30 min, all 60 min. but at xx:15, xx:30, xx:00 and not xx:07.done - V2.26
12Access the address bookWhen entiring details about the crew it shall be possible to choose people from local address bookdone - V2.27
13GeocodingPossibility to provide improvements to the community for the reverse geocoding featuredone - V2.27
14TimezonesSupport for different timezonesdone - V2.28
15Daily checksAdd daily checks for battery, bilge, etc.done - V2.28
16CurrentAdd possibility to log currentdone - V2.28
17CurrentSupport Current, Course to Steerdone - V2.28
18NMEAGet data from local NMEA source instead of internet loadingavailable - V2.30
19UnitsAdd other less common units like km/h instead of knots. available - V2.30
20Engine hour clockA watch for engine hours for the case a vessel has no engine hour clock
Additionally info: Yes the timer would work fine but why can't you have the app add the engine hours automatically after the timer is stopped. This would make it seamless and stop problems where the operator forgets to add it manually. The more automated the better.
Info 2: Chip log should log continuous nm traveled, adding to the preset start number, updatable manually if needed. When I start an engine we should be able to designate which one, a timer should start and add to the preset counter until we designate that engine off. Also updatable if we forget to log it on or off.
available - V2.30
21PDF redesignRedesign PDF export and make it adjustable for future releasesavailable - V2.30

30Record to mapPossibility to go from a record to the related map part. Vice versa is already possible.done - V2.36
31Logbook default metadataWhy not have the facility where, as default, the skipper and boat is automatically entered with every new trip. It is a pain and unnecessary to add this every time as I have my own boat and always be the skipper.

+

Crew List section – Have a crew list that can be added to (database), and then when you start the trip, you are able to add crew from the list. That way you would be able to send a Personal Log to each member as well as have the overall Boat Log. Good for people that are new and would like to maintain crew data, for qualifications etc…. Nice memento for guests as well.

+

Store for the Boats key documents… Insurance, VAT, others etc. Store for the key boat information, like engine type, key serial numbers, hull number, sail number etc.
done - V2.36
32Enter coordinates with NumPadAlternative to enter coordinates with NumPad keyboard instead of number picker view.

+

Things such as not being able to tell what year you are in the time/date selector. Correcting/adding to an old trip with info that you forgot is very difficult.
done - V2.36
33Chose EngineFor switching to status engine it is already (optionally) possible to select the engines each time. This should be possible when switching tow motor-sailing as well.done - V2.36
34Map filterShow the date/time in the filter view and not just the amount of records.done - V2.38
35Import / exportPossibility to add logbook to the existing database when importing (instead of replacing the complete database)done - V2.38
36FuelShow fuel in percentage OR liter/gallons/etc

+

Fuel Usage calculation. Lt/hour set in the settings and then tank reduces over time while engines running.
open
37New stateWhat about two more status options (for motor and sail): A) Adrift (under way but not making way, no engine, no sail, not moored, not anchored, not aground ;) I do this a lot. Heading out in the open gulf for some miles, switch off the engine and relax in the sun while being “Adrift”. Fisherman do it as well. B) Aground / Beached “Aground“ to meet the ColRegs and for a bit of fun. “Beaching” is popular with power boaters. open

62Track color based on statusAlternatively color the track log on map view not based on speed but on the state (engine, sail, ...)open
63Days runStats are noon-to-noon, not midnight to midnight. For example it is common practice to keep a record of noon-to-noon 24-hour run. Possibility to have this option in settings, either calendar day (as now) or noon-to-noon.open

81MOBOption to initiate MOB from Watch including re routing to MOB positionopen
82Copy Paste RecordI often forget to start the log until I am underway and would like the ability to go back to the last entry and make a copy of this so I can just change the date and time and the position will stay where I was so I don't need to change that.open
83Free text space...at the end of the logbook some free pages, for free text, maintenance stuff and so onopen

89PDF ExportIt should be possible to export the PDF also without internet, even if maps are not embedded in this case.open
90LanguagesThe default language is the one chosen in IOS, however it is possible to override this with english language but not with the others (German, French, Spanish, etc.) This should be also possibleopen
91Apple WatchIt would be really great to be able to configure the companion app on the watch to show data you might like? Eg I would probably get rid of the temp (as it’s not really useful and I don’t have the sensors on the boat anyway) and replace it with NMEA depth, which would be amazing while anchoring as I. open
92Statistics movement distance mooredHours moored is largely irrelevant to most people as it’s usually when the boat is on its home birth. Ideas: Have a moored and home state and/or have the ability to toggle moored or home on and off in the stats.... Reason being that for most boaters the moored is going to be a huge number compared to the others which makes the graphs sort of pointless as you only see moored as 99% of the donut.open
