I suggest the wind angle rose at the bottom right of the screen change colour according the effect wind has on the sails for example; red could represent bad wind force and approaching sail irons, yellow could be in between green and red with green representing best wind to sail angle. Comments?
A standard map navigation tool is a compass rose. It will be a nice addition on the main maps and help the maps look authentic. Simple Nav tools like maps scale, distance calipers or some other measurement tool will be nice too. A line or path direction that could cross over from map to ship showing course\off course deviation is another suggestion. Lat and long are a couple of maps guides with marine navigation too. Just a few suggestions. Here is a link to Nav charts if you want to see what real life marine charts are like. http://www.maptown.com/canadiannautical/pacific-coast-interior-british-columbia-nautical-charts.html I'm not suggesting you use all modern Nav aids but a few can be added to give your map a real life feel to it. Of course a period compass and rose of that era can be a cool idea, you may consider.
