Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hello,


I have published yesterday a new release with new settings layout and :
  • the possibility to dismiss magnetic compass display (to save battery)
  • in the MOB screen, you can now switch between : bow up and MOB up
Let me know if there is a problem

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hello,


Now the MOB button is available from every screen.


PS: I hope you won't have to use it too often

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hello Fred, your app is really excellent. I have used it this weekend and I am really happy with it. I even used your MOB feature as a kind of anchor watch.
I know this is probably asking too much but there is something that would make it truly stand out: the possibility of connecting to the boat's wifi and receiving NMEA info, basically AWS and AWA.

Congratulations!
Juan

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Here it is ...


I have just published the release 1.2.1 containing maps from google map. It is not as helpfull as Navionics or OpenseaMap but it will be fine to see our tracks.


You are already more than 15000 to use SailFreeGps and I still haven't used it on the sea !!!
It will come by the end on june...

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Fred, I tested it this morning and it works OK! Very nice to see your track on Google Maps and being able to zoom in and out.

Good job!

Hello masonc,


Il will investigate deeper but I think there is already "caching" included natively with Google Maps.

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

There is an "ADD Button" in the top lelf of the map screen.


and you can move a waypoint with a long click on it.
