Anchor watch & gps

I have been using chat plotter to monitor my anchor but now I would like to have an app on my android phone.

Can anyone recommend the following app for me as there are many choices?
Anchor alert
Boat GPS

Thanks in advance

If this is an option, Vesper XB-8000 AIS has built-in anchor alarm. It works great!

Drag Queen is my favorite.
There are rumors that a new version is coming up with even more and better features.

But c 800 for an anchor alert does seem a little excessive! An app would be rather cheaper.

Re: Anchor watch & gps

Maybe it's just me but if I search for Drag Queen on the App Store nothing comes up ! Is it purely for Android ? There is "Drag Alarm" but no Drag Queen ...

Yes, an app would be cheaper but you wouldn't get all the features that the Vesper 8000 unit gives you for that price - AIS, wifi, app controllable unit and the anchor alert

And a way to pass NMEA data to your PC navigation application...
