SailFreeGPS : Sailing application now on iOS

Hello,

I took the opportunity of this winter to release SailFreeGPS on iOS !!!

Some functions are not yet available but it already contains:
  • SOG, COG, max speed, average and trip
  • MOB function
  • You can add Waypoints and activate GOTO (VMC and ETA will be calculated)
  • 2 graphs displaying SOG & COG history
  • your track is displayed on a map
    • save your track to GPX or KML and share it
    • use divider tool to calculate distance
  • you can use anchor alarm
  • you can use course control alarm
  • and there is also a regatta departure line feature with countdown
You can find this app here: https://sites.google.com/view/sailfreegps/download

Hello,


It's now also possible to import waypoints from GPX or KML files...

Re: SailFreeGPS : Sailing application now on iOS

I've been using this app for about a year now and can vouch for its usability. Only issue I have is when my phone goes to sleep it stops recording. I'm not sure if that can be fixed by the dev though as it may be a security thing. Beyond that though, absolutely love it! The ability to work with gpx and kml is invaluable.

Hello,


Some Android devices decides, in order to save battery, to prevent some app to work when they are in background.
In such a case, you need to add SailFreeGPS in the list of app to keep alive when they are in background.


You just need to add SailFreeGPS in the list of apps that should not be optimized, in your battery settings.


Fred.
