“Anchor Watch” uses the GPS on your smart phone to monitor your boat‘s position. If the boat moves outside of set limits, the program will alert you immediately. Alerts include phone calls, sound, vibration alerts, pop ups or email.
There are no more sleepless nights when you worry about whether your boat is dragging or not. Keep the phone next to where you are sleeping and a quick glance will assure you that all is ok.
If the boat drags out of the predefined areas, it will alert you in any way you decide. Flashing text, sounding alarm or even call to another phone.
Anchor Watch sophisticated filtering allows for GPS errors, which can occur every now and then. The settings panel is fully customized allowing a number of different alarm types.
Of course it fully supports iOS4 and runs in the background too (but you can tell it to conserve battery and update only in foreground) which allows you to pursue other activities on your phone while Anchor Watch is on guard.
Anchor Watch is available for iPhone and iPad. Both versions are device specific implementations so you will get the best experience out of every device.
