Anchor!

Marie Hullo
Be alerted if your anchor drags with a simple yet full of features app :
- Easy to use: Click once to set anchor position, touch the alarm circle on map to adjust alarm radius and you're ready.
- Easy to set anchor position:
-> a button to set anchor at your current position
-> choose a position on the map: relocate anchor with drag and drop.
- Easy to use with standard map gestures (zoom, scroll ...)
- Remote mode : check your position and get alerted on a second device
- Enhanced track recording: The boat track is recorded and a time - colored path is displayed on map. You can identify at first glance whether your anchor position is drifting or not.
- Track management: enable, disable and reset the track. Export it by email in CSV format or GPX format.
- Possibility to choose the ringTone
- Works offline ! You still see your boat position relative to the anchor, the anchor position and the alarm circle. Once offline the map is replaced by a graphic.
- 3 alarms methods :
-> Attention catching visual alarm with a blinking black/white screen,
-> Accoustic alarm,
-> In background: accoustic alarm with a notification.
- Mail alert
/!\\ On some iPad models, you'll find Mute in the Control Center. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Control Center then disable Mute.

- Easy to adjust alarm distance:
-> either set a value in settings
-> or adjust it directly by touching the alarm circle
- Vertical map scale in feet or meters as you prefer.
- User interface darkened to help preserve night vision.

- No add
- Strictly respects your privacy: we do not collect any of your personal information, ever.
