Needs track uploading status saved and logged I love the app but agree with Jeremy. We did a regatta this weekend and half the boats tried to upload on wifi in the club after the race the phone did nothing and now I'm doing a forensics job on the phone trying the hack the .csv so I can upload it to the site manually. if the home screen showed "Tracks" and showed the status of each upload with "uploading" " failed" and "upload" with the ability to retry uploading a track that failed to upload for some reason (even days later). That in my mind would be a huge improvement for this app. I assume that the IOS version suffers from the same issue. I hope this feedback is constructive. Thanks, Ryan

Has major problems that need to be fixed! This app has great promise, but it has huge problems that need fixing. 1) It will record tracks just fine, but the options for saving that track are "upload", there is no save-to-phone feature so you can upload it later. This is a major flaw in my opinion. 2) If you hit "upload track" when you're done recording a track and for any reason you do not have data-service at the time (common enough when you're on the water), the track is LOST FOREVER. This is horrible. FIX THIS. I have lost several tracks already because when the race is over, I hit "upload" and the app can't upload. Instead of simply saving the track to a file on the phone, it literally vanishes into the ether. This app again has great promise, but the track uploading needs to be fixed, give us the OPTION of saving the tracks to the phone so we can upload them LATER.

Great for tracking your races Great app for tracking your races. Simple to use. Make sure GPS is on and click 'start' - then at the end of the sail click 'end' (or finish). Try and orient your phone so the top is facing towards the bow, so that the orientation of your boat is captured correctly. You can now preview your track when you get back to the boat right on your phone. Or go to the website, and use the 3D viewer and compare your speed and course with other raceqs users. We use it to track our practice days with our F18 fleet.

Does not work When phone locks the data recording stops The screen lock is required for company MS exchange email. The app records and shuts off after a mile or two.

If you race get this app! it really is extremely cool – as close to America’s Cup graphics as we’re ever going to get for everyday races. We use it in our J24 races and it really shows how boats win races. Even after 4 or 5 weeks I am still discovering ways to use it!! The polar plot is a a fantastic way to see how well you are steering. I love the preset start time feature - you don't have to worry about starting the app during the pre-start sequence. We show replays at the bar after the race and everyone stays inside to look. Highly recommended!!
