On the map a waypoint has two numbers next to it. I can figure one is the distance, but the other one stumps me. It cannot be the time of arrival, math doesn't work out. Cannot be the number of hours to travel, also math doesn't work. What is it?

It is the time it takes to get there from your current position based on your current speed. Thus, if your running around in high compression it will change a lot becuase your sub's constantly changing speed slightly.

Actually it IS time of arrival, and the math DOES work out.

It stumped me at first, also - until I realized that the distances are in KM, not in nautical miles. I knot = 1.8xx KMs, so 10knots is about 18.xx KMs.
