iPad/iNavX/Anchor alarm


I am using my iPad with iNavX as a back up navigation system. The last two nights were the first time I tried to use it as an anchor alarm (we are sailing up the east coast of New Zealand).

The anchor alarm works perfect when I test it and for some length of time (a couple of hours), but when I left it on overnight - when I really want it to work! - I get up in the morning and it's off, the iPad is still on but back to the home page with all the installed apps. I have tried it 2 nights and it's the same problem. I have not let it run while I'm awake to see how long it takes before it shuts off, but I will.

I do have it plugged into 12volts so it is 100% charged.

Re: iPad/iNavX/Anchor alarm

Hello Jim. It's too bad you haven't received any help on this one... I would be interested knowing if you finally had your Ipad app anchor watch working properly!
