Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hello,


I have just re-activated the swipe between screens and I have added a top ruller to ease the lateral menu access.


Hope you will prefer ... Let me know.

The best of both worlds. But I can't swipe back once I get to the Settings screen

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hello,


Thank you for the feedbacks.
In fact I didn't manage to activate the swipe on this screen (due to vertical scrolling activated here). I hope I will be able to solve it but it seams that I am not alone in this case

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hi Fred,
Thanks for providing such a wonderful app! You are a genius!

As one of the less-talented in app matters please clear up a few things for me:
*Does this app require data from other sources or does it just depend on its own built in GPS connection direct from satellites?
*Is there a minimum version of Android and minimum memory required? I am looking at buying an inexpensive new tablet for it.
*Are you likely to produce an app that can be used on a laptop in Windows? If not can you suggest a similar app that works well in Windows?



Your English is great and thank you again for sharing the result of your talent and hard work!


Merci beaucoup!



Rotten Ricky.

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hello,


SailfreeGPS runs on devices since Android 4.0 with few capacities and only uses GPS.
I plan to add other functionalities like Anchor Watch for which SMS will be suitable to inform the owner of the sailboat...

You can figure it out for yourselves. Just disable internet connection or turn off Wi-Fi on your device, and you will found out straight away "Does this app require data from other sources or does it just depend on its own built in GPS connection direct from satellites?".

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hi Fred,
Nice work!
If you plan to develope the app further I would like to propose that you add a function to send GPRMC messages following the OpenGTS[emoji769] standard. Then it is possible to send logg data directly to a server. /Petter

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

A friend of mine just used your app during a race weekend and loved it. Any chance of a version for those of us handicapped with an iPhone?

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Great app I will be using this during our night passages as I do not need my glasses to see the big graphics, much better than my Garmin 76

Thanks a million
