I also have the SiTex Metadata B. Have been running it for 4 years. Interestingly, the way it displays on the chartplotter has alot to do with the chart plotter's own processing software. For example for two years we ere running it using Open CPN software and it showed all the intersects such as time to closest approach and the distance at closest approach and such information on the screen. Recently we have been using Coastal Explorer now the main screen shows the contact's course and speed, but a separate tab has the CPA and the TCPA. We like the CE approach better as there is less clutter. CE software is better at filtering out targets with low risk.
