Official app for the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard – The Coast Guard SafeTrx app allows you to register your vessel and plan your journey on your Android.
Registering vessel and journey information couldn’t be any easier. Follow an easy to understand registration process to register your contact and vessel details within the application. Once your registration details are saved you may begin planning your journey. Using built in maps, select a starting point, an optional waypoint and an end destination. Add to this an ETA, the type of trip and the number of persons on board your vessel. Once this is completed simply press the ‘set sail’ button when you are ready to start your journey.
Pressing ‘set sail’ will register the journey details with the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard computer server and will activate position reporting in the app. At regular intervals the app will send a position report to the server and the Coast Guard will be automatically alerted if the journey exceeds the ETA.
At any stage during the journey you can end your trip, revise the ETA, number of people on board or the destination.
Requires Android’s OS 4.0 and above
