anchor alert….. good night!
As fellow boating enthousiasts we know. Enjoying nature, the silence, the peace and the space. What can make anyone more happy. A beautiful day on a lake or in a bay behind the anchor. Enjoying the view, the sun and the water. Swimming, diving a great day with family and or friends. Even at night it is fantastic.
Still there is often some anxiety. Will our anchor keep? Are we not on the run? Right now there is the perfect solution. The Anchor Alert app for iPhone. Nothing is more simple. Just input the radius of the area to be watched and tap on the start button. When the device, and therfore your ship, is moving more then the set radius the alarm will go off.
Attention: The Anchor Alert app is using the GPS functionality continous. This can lead to battery drainage. A fully charged battery of your device is strongly recommended. Better yet, put your device on charge when using the Anchor Alert app.
Second, in some cases it is difficult to obtain a good GPS precision when the device is inside the ship. In almost all cases the precision increases strongly when the device is placed near a window. You will understand that a good GPS reading is essential for a safe an comfortable stay under a starry sky.
