Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

I just installed it on my phone. Wow! It is very nice. But I had a hard time turning it off when I finished playing with its features. I look forward to using it after I launch in May.
Cheers 😎

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Thanks for a great app Fred! A couple of us have been trying it out on my boat and it is working great, and is super easy to use.

Thanks, Bruce

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Well done app, thank you!

FYI, I couldn't get "Landscape presentation" to work on my Samsung S8 Active, or Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016), but that's not a show stopper.

I look forward to trying this while sailing!
