There´s something funny as you reach the most eastern part of the map, and want to put the dest. on the west side... you get greatcircles in both ways... the western becomes a straight line, and you get the isocrones all mixed up... the courseline will only be dots and no line between them...

I also noticed that the 180 degrees Long meridian is numbered 120... don´t know if that´s an displayissue, wrongnamed or if it really has something to to about it...

Sorry, if you zoom to the max 180 is 180...

Now I´m over on the west side, and all I get is the great-circle, no courseline at all... what am I doing wrong?

W of 179W30 to 180 it must be something corrupt... after I passed it, it works ok again

Yes, you can not cross 180. There are few bugs in there.

And the world chart should wrap around to show you the result, but it does not.

... cue the story about F-16 jet fighter flipping upside down after crossing the equator with its early avionics software.

Good thing I don't work for Lockheed Martin on NASA ;-)

That would have been interesting 4U... ! and most likely good for them... :)
But we´re happy that you work for the fun with us...!!

It´s fantastic, but I managed to cross 180... all on my own!!!

While attempting its first overseas deployment to the Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan, on 11 February 2007, a group of six Raptors (NEW USAF F22) flying from Hickam AFB, Hawaii experienced multiple computer crashes coincident with their crossing of the 180th meridian of longitude(the International Date Line). The computer failures included at least navigation (completely lost) and communication. The fighters were able to return to Hawaii by following their tankers in good weather. The error was fixed within 48 hours and the F-22s continued their journey to Kadena.(131)
