Mapchart - lineconnection east to west issue



Have the next question. Am using a map chart where I run in to an issue.

Since the world is a globe and the spotfire mapchart is a flat picture I see next behaviour when using the line connection option to draw a line per ship.

I have a multiple ships and thats why I would like have this option enabled. The consequense is that when my ship is going from longtitude 180 (east) in to direction of west - 178 for example its drawing a line all over the map from east to west.... which is visuallly not the best and its like the ship travelled over land.


Does any one dealt with this issue before or has some clever idea how to resolve it?

Many thanks for your time and inputs.
