Anchor Watch / Alarm

Anchor Watch / Alarm


This App will allow you to fix your boats location and to set a maximum scope that you want the boat to drift before triggering an alarm. YOu can elect to run in silent mode with just a warning message appearing when the set scope it exceeded or you can elect to use the default alarm sound.

The distance drifted and bearing to the set anchor point are shown.

There are settings options to enable you to choose whether to use feet or metres and whether to allow the app to run in the background etc

NOTE: For those people who don't understand, GPS does not work indoors and it uses up your battery. This is NOT the fault of any GPS based App. Also the alarm will not work if you have your phone set on silent!

Works but tough to shut off The app doesn't show up in the sweep down menu so if you exit the app you have no idea if its running. Also it allows multiple instances running at once with different distances. Very confusing. Make it show in sweep down and only allow one instance and it might be 3 or 4 stars.
