Auto track has 2 ways to cross between the 2 maps (Europe and Africa/Asia), but some may not know the 3rd and 4th.
So here it the 3rd way to cross.
You can sail around any of the islands but the green line is my preferred route because you do not have to click so much.
(ok so I can't draw a straight line... but you get the idea.)
You can not cross where the red lines are... those passes are blocked by icebergs.
you will need to click on the anchor icon (much like entering a city) to pass between the maps.
[you can in fact over sail the map entrance]
Here is the 4th route over Northern Asia/Russia...
The "anchors" that transfer you to the other map are located approximately along the green lines I have drawn:
They are not in a "straight line but vary in coordinates. The first number ranges from -637 near land to -650 near the top of the map. for the European map side... they differ slightly if you approach from the Eastern side.
You can easily over sail the anchors if you are approaching from the European side.... there are fishing shoals that can be accessed east of the "line of anchors".
I suggest if you plan to use the crossing regularly you "memorize" the coordinates of one (well, 2) of the anchors and sail directly to them... get numbers for sailing each way.
