Thank you JBP, most helpful! I have filled the column for My Anchor Watch App now in my survey chart and the update is available at https://trimaran-san.de/anchor-alarm-apps-overview/.

Two empty columns still to go...

Cheers, Mathias

The original 7" helm installation has now expanded to two 9" MFDs so that I can display both a chart and a radar image concurrently at the helm, with the original 7" MFD to be installed at the nav station below.

Whilst it's wonderful to have all that information so readily available I have yet to find an anchor watch function on any of the new gadgets. I know they are probably there and one of these days I will set aside a week or so to locate it on one of them but until then, she's OpenCPN on the tablet.

Dropping a waypoint at the vessel position and assigning it anchor watch with OpenCPN is so simple and practicable I may never be able to overcome my affinity for it even if I do discover how to set an anchor watch and audible alarm on the MFD.

Would you mind checking My Anchor Watch against the feature set I have as rows in my chart and let me know the outcome? I can then complete that column.

Thanks so much! Mathias
MAW - my favorite app.. The pro version is NLA sadly.. (still have my old pro version though!) Still the best app.

Thanks for this link! With this I have now also found it on Play Store. Bit embarrassing, but ok...

Cheers, Mathias

Re: Anchor alarm apps - a comprehensive survey

Added SafeAnchor for Android to the overview. It has quite some features, but a rather unusual way of defining the anchor radius and anchor position, which takes some time getting used to.
