Now I see Predict Wind
has that option But I dont intend (cant afford) to be running the Pro version and/or the Iridium
Go all the time (although definitely for passages).. alot of our travels will be coastal and probably within cell reach.
Soooooo.. what Cell phone
apps are out there to send a daily location update to a web page (either my own or one that can be embedded)
Any ideas options welcomed!..
Navionics can record
tracks while navigating.
If you have AIS
class B transceiver, "Marine Traffic" , "Vessel finder" , "Find ship" may help you out.
For long term tracking try Noforeignland.Com, registration
and usage is free, it uses AIS
or manual location updates, with a patreon pledge you get automatic satellite
tracking via Garmin
InReach and / or IridiumGo, friends and family can follow you then without costs anywhere and it has tons of information for free about other cruisers around you, anchorages
, places and service reviews
, chats and a rudimentary forum.
