Carp anglers commonly use expensive handheld GPS devices while fishing on big lakes to save promising spots in the water, allowing them to find spots quickly again while carp fishing. Now, the Carpigate GPS app for your iPhone makes GPS easily accessible and affordable for carp fishing.
Especially designed for fishing, this GPS app allows you to save and locate GPS position points and coordinates of your fishing hot spots via the GPS functionality of your iPhone. This app easily navigates you back to your saved hotspot, allowing you to lay your bait in the exact location of a previous bite. When you are nearby your saved spot, you are notified by vibration or tone alarm.
This app ist also fitting well for all anglers who want to be right on the spot when casting. If you have leaded your swim for example with a marker rod, clip your line and count as normal with the help of distance sticks your number of rod lengths. Afterwards go into position, tap on the button for entering your rod lengths and turn your smartphone in the casting direction.
From these informations the GPS coordinates of your spot will be calculated which you can save then. When you cast next time, the direction and the number of rod lengths is shown in the app. Also if you have to cast from another position, always the right direction and number of rod lengths is calculated based on your actual position.
If you also save your camp via GPS, this app can navigate you back to camp at night, during bad weather or when visibility is low on big lakes without the need to set up a light on shore.
You can save an unlimited number of waters containing an unlimited number of spots. Use significant names for your spots and add optional annotations for example "works best in autumn." So after years, you will still know if this spot was the plateau, the sloping edge or the bed of mussels.
From now on, you can copy all saved data of your spot with one tap and send it to your friends via SMS, E-Mail or Whatsapp. Therefore, you can easily share your feeding grounds and alternate feeding responsibilities with your fellow and be confident that they will be able to find the exact locations.
If you investigated your waters via Google Earth or Google Maps, you can now save interesting areas with a longer tap on the map or by entering the coordinates manually. Once on the water, you can easily locate these areas for a more detailed look.
Save an unlimited number of pictures to your spots, for example special caught fish, the casting direction, or maybe to highlight an overhanging bush.
Of course, this app is useful for all boat anglers too. Finally found the location of pikes, zanders or perches while spin fishing or trolling? Use this app to save the hot spot and you will not have to start at the beginning next time.
Especially interesting for predator and trolling anglers, you can record complete trolling routes. Likewise, you can also create routes out of your already saved spots and navigate back to them. If you drift away from your recorded route, you will be notified by an alarm tone.
