This is a serious application for the recreational sailor.
This app uses the windows phone platform to implement a digital nautical bearing compass. Its capabilities go far beyond those of traditional bearing compasses.
Anyone who was traveling through a dense traffic sea area wished many of these features.
Special attention was paid to the handling on board; on deck of a rolling yacht, even at night and under adverse conditions.
The app covers all uses of a bearing compass, in particular:
• Identifying risks of collision (CBDR- constant bearing, decreasing range)
• Obtaining a fix through 2,3 or 4 bearings, or as a „running fix“
• Transiting channels and fairways
• Determining relative speeds during a race (“is he winning?”)
• Taking bearings through phone camera
• Saving the bearing along with the camera picture
• Evaluation of up to 10 bearings as a series to achieve higher precision
• Automatic calculation the mean value of a bearing series
• Automatic elimination of outliers
• Keep up to 4 series in memory with recall function for every bearing and picture
Use the free trial version to test the functionality of the app on your phone.
