Re: New online trip planner and largest POI base on map
You're right Roger. There's certainly more to add and we need to handle European standards in a better way (European power too).
There already are filters that we've built into the website - Markers/Settings. You can do a fair amount of things with fuel and pump out as well as sort by slip pricing, etc. There's much more possible there. Right now almost no one uses that capability but that might be because it doesn't do what's needed.
I'm learning as each part of this gets implemented too. There's a major new capability coming for use while underway with GPS support and some ways of using your route and the marker database that haven't ever been done before. I think that might be a more usable way to access the info you want quicker. That'll be better when you know where you're going and want to see what's around. It will always take some basic looking around to figure out where you want to go in many cases though. Much of that requires looking at the reviews where real experience give more info than database data in many ways. For example, it's one thing if a marina has showers. It's something much different to know whether they're clean or disgusting.
