I am a sport angler (no kill - I adhere to the principle of catch and release) and I have a bait boat. This is a specific boat because it is used for baiting.
It is important for anglers to always bring the bait to the same point.
Arduboat allows you to set several points but these are always the points through which the boat flows towards the last one.
The owners of bait boats need each point to be independent.
We have a lake on which I set 10 points after scanning the bottom.
For me it is important that I can choose I want to go to point 7. The boat goes to point 7, opens the flaps (using a servo), drops the bait ball and returns home. Reloading the boat I choose point 3 and the same situation drops the bait ball and returns home.
There is no such option in Arduboat. I talked to Randy Mackay and asked me to set up a new forum topic.
Around the world, people fish sportily using bait boats. Unfortunately, the most important points in fishing are always treated as a single point to which you should go.
The best solution would be to choose switch on the transmitter to allow choosing the waypoint.
Here’s more or less what the movie looks like before I shoot my movie.
APM Planner 2.0 is very good but for making a map of the lake, e.g. using a deeper fishfinder. However, the possibility of choosing a single GPS point from the transmitter or using APM Planer is the most important thing with bait boats.
The lack of this option, unfortunately, cancels the use of arduboat. Which I regret very much.
Of course, points would have to be saved permanently. So that I could come to the lake in a year and choose exactly the same point
Thank you in advance for your comments.
