description

There are a few nice sailing apps already, but this is yet another one... =)

This app has
- Race Timer with ISAF starting sequence support
- Cruise view with speed, bearing and other valuable data
- Laps view

In Cruise mode, you may see at one glance, actual speed, bearing, max speed and avg speed for last 10 seconds. Also, there are a set of helpful indicators, like GPS status, recording status and actual speed vs avg speed, which is very useful for sail trimming.
Moving average of bearing for last 10 sec. could be helpful in long-distance cruise.

In Race Timer mode you may see remaining seconds till start, actual time and speed. You can also adjust countdown timer by one sec up and down, and down to next minute.

In Laps view laps data available - max speed, average speed, distance and time for last 20 laps

Waypoint mode is under development.

usage

- In any view press and hold UP (over 2 sec.) to get access to the main menu.
In main menu you may choose
-- switch to *Race Timer* mode
-- switch to *Cruise* mode
-- switch to *Laps view*
-- change settings: initialize countdown value for Race Timer, change Background Color and enable/disable Auto recording

In Cruise mode
- press start/stop button to start/stop recording. This option available only if GPS signal strong enough (GPS indicator yellow or green)
- press back button to add a new lap. Laps statistic available in *Laps View*.

- DOWN subtract one second from the countdown timer
- BACK round timer to nearest minute down

After countdown ends, the app will automatically add one lap (if an activity is recording) and switch to *Cruise* mode.

In Laps View you can see data from last 20 laps. This data stores permanently, even if you close the app and start it again, laps data will be on place
- UP shows the previous lap

  • When will this app be available for Epix Gen2 ? Since this is the only app that I use with my Garmin for sailing, I’m looking forward to it. I saw that it’s available for Fenix 7 series, but why not Epix :(

  • They have different screen resolutions so unfortunately it’s not able to use the code designed for the 7X, suspect it’s being worked on 

  • I have been using this app on my Fenix 3 since the app came out. I introduced to all my sailing friends and they all use it. Please add Forerunner 55 as compatible device. It has the same screen resolution as the Fenix 3 and there should be no compatible issue.

  • When loading routs the yet sailing app send a loading error code -2 how I can solve it?

  • This code means the device Bluetooth isn’t working/available , can sometimes be solved by closing and opening the connect/IQ apps, and checking the connect/IQ app permissions in your phone to ensure Bluetooth is allowed and connected

    the watch doesn’t have an internet connection and uses Bluetooth to download the files using your phone’s internet connection

  • the YA-SailingBot don't performs "DELETE", "RENAME" and "LIST" commands.

    Please can you fix it ?
