20 minutes is long enough for tracking but not long for currents on a 2 day trip. It would be nicer if it was 24 hours.
I didn't imagine SailFreeGPS could be used for so long time !!!
I just imaged it could be used to help to trim the sails ...

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

Hello,

I was developping the new "Setting Screen" but I Think the old ones are better.

Which one do you prefer ?

Re: New Android Sailing App : SailFreeGPS

speaking of navigation software.....

I think a comprehensive data logging feature would be very handy. All I see now is the track. A track might only show you had passed in "safe water".. at some point in time.

What would be useful is the ability to click on a location on a track... and get the following information

time vessel was at the location
depth
boats speed
SOG
wind speed, true and apparent
wind angle, true and apparent
actual wind speed and direction

This would require lots of memory.... and sample rate would have to be limited.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
