    Anchor watch alarms

    What apps do you all use for anchor alarms? I’m feeling like it could hurt right. So far on windy nights I just listen and get up and check a couple of times.

    myself, I dont use an app...I use the one that is in the gps unit.
    my lower helm gps is on all the time im on the boat so I can see immediately what my depth is, which is important to know if you've drifted while on the hook. (when in fresh water, its also nice to know the water temp with a glance at the screen)

      Similar to Centerline: I drop a “pin” on my plotter application (Navionics). Just unlock the phone to see if your where your supposed to be.

        Anyone of them will work fine. I use the one in ISailor on m Phone when I go to bed at night so if I wake up I can check on our location. I also use “Anchor” because I can set my phone to remotely monitor my iPad when I go ashore. The iPad stays on the boat and sends out the location to my phone using cell service

          I am not sue if Rick still producing these anchor alarm. I have been using my alarm for 5 yrs and it has been flawless. This unit is stand along, can be carried into the bedroom or area of your choice to monitor potential drift. This unit doesn't rely on cell connectable.

            I use the anchor watch alarm that is built into my GPS plotter. I also use the Depth alarm on the same plotter, so two sources of data for the alarm.

            To make sure I get notified I have an external buzzer in the ceiling of the master berth.
