Latest Enhancements

Local Chart ID Numbering

In Tablet v1.6.14, we have changed the way that the chart ID is assigned to local, non-uploaded charts on the device.  This number is created based on the date and time that the chart was started on the Tablet.  To distinguish the local chart ID on non-uploaded charts, from the permanent PRID on partially uploaded charts, a thin vertical green bar is shown on the left edge of the chart to indicate that it has been partially uploaded.
