Is it possible to maintain distinct destinations for 2 boats in the same race? Even running these boats on different browsers (Safari on Mac, Firefox) what happens is that the routing, when switching browsers, maintains the last refreshed destination for the other boat. This is easy to reset for one boat as the destination is NZ, but a bit more awkward for boat 2 as the destination is an ever-changing island (for an alternate race).

What's curious, and obvious, is that boat names are different, but it is not uncommon for the names to switch when the browser is switched. I would have thought that cookies would be distinct and maintained separately by each browser.

Thanks to all in advance for insight.

Not that I have been able to figure out.. I can get it to keep each boat on separate tabs, but when clicking "get" it gets the info for the correct boat, but changes the destination and zoom level to the previous boat's. If you Refresh the page, you get the last zezo loaded no matter which name is in the box.

Exactly. Must use computer's IP address rather than cookies.

It uses cookies, but the session state is also passed in the address, so if you copy and paste the link into another browser you end up with the same session.

I t looks like this

If you change one of the numbers in the address it becomes possible to run two boats within one browser.

A quick solution would be to open incognito window - this should get rid of the cookie and get you new session.

WOW, I love it! separate destinations! separate zoom levels! separate forecast days! Zezo YOU DEF ARE THE MAN! lol. That just sealed the deal for my donation this year! Maybe if everyone donates enough, Zezo can quit his job and program the router to show top 3 routes with branches over an adjustable degree angle. It would be very cool to: Set the router to show 3 best routes within a 60 degree range of heading, with a minimum of 15 degree between each route for example. This way, you could watch the end points and see how the weather is affecting each side of the degree range, and many other possibilities. Sure sounds easy doesn't it?!?! LMAO Thanks a ton Zezo, this was a great tip! I love my Zezo.org love hate relationship!
