SET THE ANCHOR
Anchor Pro allows you to set the anchor location directly as you are setting the anchor, or specify the location of the anchor later by providing distance and bearing to the anchor. More advanced users can also specify the coordinates of the anchor.
SPECIFY ALLOWED AREA
You can specify the allowed area to be a simple circle around the anchor location, or opt for a more advanced area by providing two different distances at specific angles.
MONITOR THE MOVEMENT
The application provides you with enough data to keep you on top of every movement of the boat. You can review all the data from the main screen or graphically check position on the map where you can also see how the boat moved around — perfect for analysis if the anchor is holding or dragging.
GET ALERTED WHEN NEEDED
The application allows monitoring of the position, GPS reception, and battery level. You can get alerted when any of those metrics reach certain thresholds.
When you are not on a boat you can leave the phone there and get alerted in the event of an alarm. You can be alerted via instant message using a Telegram app or via an email message. With Telegram, you can also request the status of the application at any moment.
You can use the Apple Watch app to always have distance, bearing and battery level available in real-time — from your wrist.
EXPERIENCE ANCHOR PRO FOR FREE
The basic functionalities of the application will always be free to use and you have a possibility to test all of the premium features for free as the subscriptions offer a free initial trial period.
Anchor Pro is ad-supported. If you choose to purchase an Anchor Premium subscription to remove ads and get extra features, payment will be charged to your iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. Subscription automatically renews for the same price unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your Account Settings after purchase. The current price for Anchor Premium is $4.49 USD per year and may vary from country to country. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable.
Anchor Pro uses background audio and location update modes to keep you alerted when the application is not in the foreground.
Please note: Continuous use of GPS will cause the battery to discharge more quickly.
