The Fast Track app is a powerful tool for outdoor and sailing activities.
It provides you with:
- Waypoints, tracks and routes in GPX format
- Offline and Image Maps
- Weather Forecast
- Voice notifications
- Route and waypoint navigation
- Proximity alerts
- Navigation analysis
For sailors the fast track provides:
- Sailing specific indicators as: VMG, Bearing, Course, Deviance, …
- Leg comparison. When choosing a destination The Fast track app will automatically
determine the theoretical wind of direction as upwind or downwind from your current position. Each time the boat crosses this direction, The Fast Track app will assume the boat's tacking or gybing. And creates a new leg. You can also enter the current wind direction.
- A time to line tool, synchronized with the regatta chronometer, keeping you informed with estimated time to the start line. So you can make a perfect start!

Before sailing The Fast Track app, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the app in the simulation mode, where you will be provided with the necessary buttons to simulate your boat's speed and bearing.
We recommend you to use a bluetooth external GPS antenna to enhance the accuracy of the application and get the better results.
