Sailtracker Polar AIS NMEA

Sailtracker Polar AIS NMEA


Sailtracker is an application that collects NMEA data in real time from network electronics navigating of a boat through 3G/WiFi or Bluetooth, allowing you to record and export the information obtained during the session, the route and the polar.

You can use it in combination or alone with he internal GPS of your Android device to get position, speed and heading instead of using the data from the ship, as proof mechanism, or if you do not have an NMEA data connection onboard .

Sailtracker also allows display NMEA AIS information received by the AIS transceiver of your boat.

Sailtracker shows the position coordinates, Speed over ground (SOG), Course over ground (COG), GPS Time, True Heading, Magnetic Heading, Apparent and True Wind Speed and Angle, Depth, Temperature, active Waypoint, VMG, ETA ...

Record waypoints and calculate target distance, VMG, and estimated time of arrival at the destination or regatta mark.

Sailtracker compute polar based on angle and true wind speed, calculated from apparent wind and boat speed obtained by GPS (COG).

Sailtracker includes NMEA depth alarm and anchor, and a countdown timer to output regattas.

I wanted to like it, I really did... ...but it was a resource hog. I was running this on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014, which is no slouch when it comes to processing power. It was sluggish. Then, I thought I would just get out of the application, but there did not seem to be any way to exit it. Hitting the back button asked if I wanted to exit, but it continued to run. How do you kill this thing? Finally, I had to kill it in the Application Manager and that was when I uninstalled. Too bad. It looked promising.

excellent Very nicely done and thought through. Unfortunately missing important setting to select TCP or UDP. Please note this as a feature request. Cheers. Feb 2014 - UDP support! Eee-ha. Will get a PRO version. Thank you.

Doesn't work in southern hemisphere My nmea gps clearly says S and I'm in Sydney Harbour, but the map has me off the coast of Japan! I think somebody is assuming northern hemisphere
