I am very excited about this option, but can't figure out how to plot bearings. For example, if a contact is reported to be at a bearing of 30 degrees. There is no tool to plot that other than a visual guess. Am I right?

Yes, we need a tool to measure bearings on the map. I hope the devs add one ASAP.

Yes, but it doesn't really help because the other tools - ruler, compass, are in the regular map screen.

Bump for more tools on the map.

Completely agree. We desperately need a protractor, or something that can mark a contact's bearing on the navigation map.

It would be very nice to be able to draw a line from your ship in the map down a bearing of 073, knowing that the line you just drew was indeed at 73 deg. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
