Ability to add avoid area with visual and audio warnings when nearing the area. For example: certain Rocks/reefs are not marked on small scale charts but are when u zoom in to a larger scale, I would like to be able to mark these rocks with maybe a waypoint marker, but have a warning radius around it. the waypoint would need a radius amount and warning/description message and checkbox for audio warning. on boat entering the warning radius area audio would say "Danger Warning" (or similar) with description/warning dialog also popping up saying whatever the user has created e.g. "ROCK AHEAD, avoid to EAST"
