We were out sailing our new-to-us J/109 when I realized that neither of the default screens on the plotter or TZiBoat showed position. Pretty standard these days…and oh so wrong. Imagine a person overboard and we need to radio for help, but first have to dig through a bunch of screens to find our position. Two minutes to fix (above photo), but worth thinking about.
I thought if you press MOB button it would show position?
Maybe, but which is the MOB button? Would you know on a new-to-you boat when your loved one had just gone over the side. Also, most show the way back to the POB, not sure they show a lat and long. Bottom line, in my view lat and long should always be within view.
