StartStar is designed to help you:
• Tack on the shifts
• Count down to the start
• Know your distance to the start line
• Check your speed
• Save your routes on your phone
• Post routes to Facebook
• Animate many boats on Google Earth
• StartStar is hands free. It can speak to you so you don’t need to take you eye off the sails and other boats to know your speed, time or distance to the start line
As StartStar uses the GPS in your phone, it is cheaper than dedicated electronic compasses or starting aids for sale in the chandlers, in fact not only is it FREE, it does more too.
This is the first version of the app. if you find a bug please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This displays you heading. You can select between course over ground and the electronic compass. It should be noted that many Android phones do not have great electronic compasses in any cases the course over ground option is recommended. Indeed this is preferred by many sailors
The app uses Google Play Services, please download the latest version to your phone for best results.
