Works well but Used it for the first time yesterday. Big graphics and loud start time beep. Turned off screen to save battery and also will not open up saved gpx track. Keeps crashing but would think an update will fix this easily.

Tracks in .gpx format very useful for sailing review Simple program but sometimes quit recording the track. The email transfer of track data failed with no attachement. However, Bluetooth transfer works fine. Much room to improve to handle the track data and visualizing them. Battery seems running out sooner than expected. Thanks to the development team! Keep up the good work!

Good Beta Try I've tried to use this in a club regatta twice now, with limited success. I have a couple of observations and suggestions for improvement. First the observations; 1 - building a race course doesn't seem to be as straight forward as intended. For example, when on the course, pointing the device and assigning RC & Pin for start line is a good idea, however distance is subjective. I have not yet had a race comittee send me coordinates for any race as of yet... Another issue with creating the course in the app is the "From bouy database" doesn't work. I get the "Bouy with specified name already exists" warning when I attempt to select and save. 2 - my location is NEVER in the correct place. when I select "map/chart" view, it opens 90 or more miles from my current position. As for the improvements; 1 - a compass with sighting through the camera / viewfinder would be great for sighting and marking pin & comittee boats. 2 - having some apparent wind overlay would be good 3 - having a "time to line" meter would be great too. By the way, everyone I've shown this to at the club loves it! Thanks , RG

Works pretty well. Is there a way to disable GPS quality notifications in the app? It just spams me with notifications when backgrounded.

Sailing Tactician Like the app, easy to use. sometimes the screen is hard to swipe, but that is likely my phone. The GPS tracks keeps crashing- biggest down!
