I really like the MOB function (for safety and peace of mind while sailing), but on some of my devices it is too easy to get a double-tap instead of a single tap... and I end up with a long list of MOB points.

I think it would be great if there is a confirmation question after a double-tap is registered. This should not compromise safety and prevent unintentional MOB points.

Hi, .... +1

Completly agree with JNT ... I got also lots of MOB wpts i did not want with wrong double tap !
Small confirmation message should be very useful.

For exemple :
"Do you want to save this MOB Wpt ?"
"Yes" "No"
More, possibility for TB to understand "No" after 3 sec without touch answer, should be perfect !

@JNT, what do you think about that ?

I think safer would be to autoconfirm after 3 secs, rather than to dismiss.

@Kruch,
Yes, you're right ! But 3 sec autoconfirm "yes" or "no" was not a problem for me if i know before ! Wink
The most important is to get control for MOB Wpts. Smile

There are arguments for both auto confirm and auto dismiss. Both would work. MOB point creation must be a deliberate (and simple) effort by the user. Personally I would prefer auto dismiss. And a countdown message to confirm.

Double tap.
Message : "big OK button" to confirm (in 3, 2, 1, 0) seconds
"smaller Cancel button " to dismiss immediately.
No action : dismiss after countdown

Otherwise it will still create unintended MOB points.

(my 2c's worth)

My first feeling was also auto-dismiss. Smile
A double choice in settings should be the solution but maybe too "heavy" for a simple function ... Wink

Hi,

There is not only on map screen that MOB waypoints can be created ...

It's possible also to create them on CMS/Compass screens and it's too easy to create unfortunately lots of MOB Wpts with unwanted touch when using other tactile functions of CMS/Compass screens ... Sad
Areas limits are not easy to learn with precision ! Wink

Reason why confirmation message should be really useful ...
