The Tactical Data You Need To Win!

All the functions you need, with minimal interaction while racing!  

Main Screen: All your common functions in one place plus start timer.  All interaction is with taps or long-press of buttons.  Screens don't swipe well when wet!

Course Setup: Quick and fast course setup after the committee announces your course.  You can long-press any mark to set the location to your current position.  You can also save courses by name for future use!

Start Mode:  The Heads-Up info you need during your start sequence. Includes a start timer, with either tones or VOICE audio.  Shifts to 'Race Mode' automatically at the start so you don't have to touch anything!

Race Mode: The info you need for your current leg, plus what you will need after you round your mark.  And with 'AutoRound', the display advances automatically after rounding each mark.  No need to touch anything!  Keep your focus on your helm!  Now in Text or new Graphical Modes!  Here, mark 'A' is 67 degrees to starboard.  And the 'Orange Dot' shows relative bearing to the following mark.

Charts! Supports NOAA and S63 Charts (S63 is a licensing standard.  Such as Admiralty Charts in the UK).  Shows course and marks, including highlighting of current leg, and bearing line to current mark.  Shows NOAA AND Admiralty TotalTide currents to help you plan!  Tap a current arrow to see upcoming current speeds for weeks in advance.  And Range Rings to help judge distances!  Also has option to show past track, color coded for speed!  Many options, such as removing 'safe soundings' (settable depth) to declutter screen.  Chart preferences available right on chart by tapping center button.  Info available on marks and NavAids by simply tapping.  Add a NavAid as a Mark right from the chart.

VirtualMarks: Where the heck is that mark?  Lost in the dark/spray/sun?  Use your camera to find out where it's supposed to be!  Choose which set of marks to show, or just use your camera as a bearing compass.  Here, we are headed to the start line, because the 'current mark' is in yellow.  Other 'course marks' are in green.  Mark 'G' is getting closer because the lines above and below it are getting longer, until they go all the way up and down, when you are right on top of the mark.

Night Mode: Save your night vision!  Colors chosen to minimize pupil constriction in the dark.

Manage Marks: Add, edit, delete, set locations.  Supports regular marks, as well as 'Gates' like a start and finish line.  Import and Export to/from CSV (Excel), GPS (Garmin and GPS Devices), and KML (Google Earth).

Settings: Configure things the way you like.

Full Help: Does not require Internet connection.  In fact, none of the app needs an Internet Connection.
