Waypoint ID, Latitude, longitude and speed fields in Route manager should be editable. In the present form, specially when making a longer route using cursor is not very accurate and difficult as well. It will be a lot easier to enter waypoint data directly in the route manager table form.

This task depends upon

I assume that gurang means editing Route Properties table, not Route Manager. Definitely +1 for a Route Properties enhancement, making it editable, as it's one of the few basic functionalities still not implemented in OCPN. As it was stated, when planning routes many days long, the only way to have a usable information about the route is being able to input a start date and diferent speeds for each leg, and obtain a real Day-and-Time of arrival for each leg and for the whole route, far more useful than the actual ETE provided, and with only one overall speed. Beeing in front of an expensive pc, running an otherwise beautiful piece of navigation software, it´s not logical to go back to a calculator to know the date of arrival. Also, when you have a list of written waypoints, the easiest way to build a route from them is through the route properties table, so you can input them consecutively and keeping a good overview.
