Re: Garmin GPS 72H and VMG?

Stu

Instead of doing that time-consuming task I hope to upload all required waypoints and routes from my PC once I get a copy of the data from a friend who already has them on file (or upload them from his PC). That's the easy bit.

The issue I was pursuing (and what led me to this thread) was how to get accurate VMG to the current mark (as I'd read elsewhere previously about the different VMG's), which is a critical issue for us sports boat sailors using asymmetric kites downwind. Does heating up the AWA for a speed gain improve VMG to the mark, versus sailing deeper but slower - especially in lighter winds?
