Yachting Magazine: "The best dollar you've ever spent" Description: "Anchor Watch" uses the GPS on your iPad to monitor your boat's position. If the boat moves outside of set limits, the program will alert you immediately. Alerts include phone calls (only in foreground), sound, vibration alerts, popups or email. There are no more sleepless nights when you worry about weather your boat is dragging or not. Keep the phone next to where you are sleeping and a quick glance will assure you that all is ok. If the boat drags out of the predefined area (no limit on radius), it will alert you in any way you decide. Flashing text, sounding alarm, mail or even SMS to a phone. As only anchor guard app for iOS, Anchor Watch allows for the manual adjustment of your anchor position, by touch, bearing/distance or lat/long entry. So if you were busy with other things then setting the alarm, you can adjust for the drift. And if you anchored both stern and bow, Anchor Watch offers an unique course alert when a minor drift can still mean your boat is turned from the pier. Anchor Watch sophisticated filtering allows for GPS errors, which can occur every now and then. The settings panel is fully customized allowing a number of different alarm types. Of course it runs in the background too, which allows you to pursue other activities on your phone while Anchor Watch is on guard. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Available as an in-app purchase is the functionality to download and show offline maps which you can use when you don't have a data connection (or don't want to use it due to roaming charges. Or live nautical maps when you do. The maps available are based on the http://www.openseamap.org data. Check for quality and availability on their website, it is under rapid community development. You can also send in your maps and they will be added to the server for the benefit of all. Anchor Watch is under constant development, so if you have any remarks just drop an email or write a feature request in the comment section and we will get straight to it. Known issue: enable Alerts in iPhone->Settings->Notifications to receive audio alerts in the background

I do a lot of anchoring so I downloaded this app so I could monitor my anchor without having to leave my chart plotter on. The app does what it says but the real annoying thing is the map display doesn't rotate with the compass rose so you can get a bit confused when looking at where your anchor is in relation to land. Also the degree numbering on the compass rose can be a bit confusing as well due to an extra character or line after the number.
We use it every time we anchor, which is often. Makes for a much better night's sleep.
I didn't like how the rich email sent a snapshot at such a high scale that it wasn't particularly valuable if your boat was drifting. So, I sent in an email asking for an improvement and within hours he was showing me how the next version would do what I was asking for! Very impressive. I've been using this for years and it really is the best anchor watch tool on the market as I've tried several. Getting the email notice allows me to leave my iPad on the boat to "watch" the boat while we go somewhere on land. My iPhone then gets the alert and I know what is going on.
This is a great tool that will let you sleep soundly while at anchor! You can set a circle around your boat and the alarm will sound only if you drag beyond the circle. The alarm wil not sound just because the boat swings on anchor as it would if you used the anchor watch on a chartplotter. And the developer is very responsive. Version 2.4.6 had a problem with the display orientation when used in ladnscape mode. I emailed the developer and he fixed the problem and issued Version 2.4.7 within a couple of days.
It seems to give excellent coverage for Europe but is extremely limited for the United States. I went to the suggested website to check on chart availability and downloads, and it is extremely poorly done and after 20 minutes I could still not determine what if any charts could be downloaded. Until a better version comes out with US charts, I do not recommend purchasing this app. It will be a waste of money at this time.
