Distance to Destination on Simrad NSE/NSO
Is there anyone that can tell me if in a Simrad NSE/NSO system is it possible to show the “distance to the end of the route” and the “ETA to the end of the route” of an active route with several waypoints in the instrument bar on top of the screen? Please note I am referring to the end of the route and not to the next waypoint. I am not able to answer this question looking to the manual only. It seems that also in the Raymarine EW series is not possible to have these info in the data bar but only going inside the route menu and searching in “route info”. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. ;?

I have an NSS8 and I know those top bar(s) are programable. They have many entries that can be added or changed. Have you looked in that area?

Should be able to under the navigation tab, steer panel. See customizing your system in your manual.

Yes, I see in the manual I can customize the data bar, but I cannot see if the data I need (Distance and ETA to final Destination of the ruote) will be available as a choice; I am sure I can choice the distance (DTW) and ETA to the next waypoint of the route but not sure if the distance and ETA to final destination of the route will be available. Unfortunately I have not any NSE/NSO installed so I cannot play on it.

This info should be available on the Steering screen. Look for TTD (Time to Destination). I'm guessing if it's there, there's got to be a way to add it to the instrument bar.
