Saved my boat Anchored with my family on our 37 foot yacht. Alarm started going off in the middle of the night. Wind had come up and we were slipping. We were able to pull up anchor and move to another location because this app alerted us of imminent danger. Thanks!!!
Lollipop Worked well with Android 4.4 stopped working with 5.0 Lollipop. Been out for the last 6 mo. and really miss it on my phone ( Nexus 5 ). Could you please fix it? !!!!
This app is buggy. Both of my tablets behave the same. Would sometimes loose the anchor setting. The anchor distance would regularly show a much larger number and then return to the correct distance. In the middle of the night the screen would light up for no apparent reason.
Looks like a good idea. Tried it on a recent sailing trip. There is a math error such that the longitude comes up negative (-82 degrees for Florida). This is minor if consistent. My real problem with it is that I would enable the alarm, but every time I went back in to check it, the alarm was off. It never made a sound even though we did drag the anchor that night. And it didn't make a sound as we left anchor the next morning. I need to experiment some with this, but I think it is a bit rough yet.
Best I've found! Far more versatile and useful than most. Allows manual inputting of position. Tracks accuracy of GPS and alarms if GPS degrades past a point YOU set! Awesome feature! The alarm will wake the dead. It has saved us twice when our anchor didn't set well. Now, if it had mapping with a drift circle, it would be perfect!
This app works well and is very simple. If the alarm won't sound, it's settings, probably media volume. If the GPS doesn't work, it's prolly off too.
