You need to review Anchor Watch. The biggest advantage is you don't have to be at the bow, with an IPad, while you are busy dropping the hook. After you've settled down, you simply tell it how far in front of you it is by a tap on the screen. With a 3G signal, it will download a satellite view of where you are as well and show your location. If you dont have 3G service, it will still work the same without the satellite view. It then plots your location every min or so and draws a persistence trail, so you can visually see if you are dragging or just swinging around the anchor. You can also set the alarm range as wide or tight as you want it.
