It warns about dangerous approaches between boats, boats and swimmers and fixed obstacles such as buoys, poles, pylons etc. Primarily designed for rowing, it's also perfectly suitable for sailing, small motor boats and yachts.
RowingCAS also offers live tracking e.g. for Search and Rescue support.

RowingCAS has been tested on phones, tablets and smartwatches. It uses the GPS, the compass and requires a mobile data connection. The mobile data amounts are very low so that it is perfectly reasonable to use it even while roaming.
