Anchors Aweigh is here for your safety. It is a tool that continually monitors your position and will alert you if you drift too far from an anchor point.

It uses the new advanced capabilities of iOS 4 and multitasking to alert you *the very moment* that you have drifted too far. You no longer need to check in with the app - it sits in the background and will tell you when the situation has become dangerous.

Boaters, have you ever set your anchor - only to wonder a couple hours later whether you have drifted perhaps a little too far? Sure you have, we all have. But it's sometimes hard to tell if you don't have a reference near by or with a mix of drinks and sleep. Worry no more. You can tell the app at what depth and scope you have set the anchor, and it will tell you if it thinks you're dragging! You will be notified immediately so that you can take corrective action immediately.

Everyone else, this app makes for a great position keeper. Have you ever lost your car in a parking lot? No more. Just set the location as an anchor point and you will know where the car is on a map, and how far you are from it.

The background mode is only supported on iPhone4 and 3GS devices. It can also be disabled if you need to conserve battery life. If you disable it, you will still be able to track the anchor point by running the app.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Works Great! Simple to use

Really simple and useful app.

I use this app as a backup alarm for my chart plotter. The great part about this app is that I can keep it by my bunk when I'm sleeping. I find that the chart plotter is too far away and I always worry that I won't hear it if/when the anchor drags. Hopefully I'll never need it, but it really helps me sleep better!

I bought another app that was more expensive before OS4 came out. It didn’t have the background GPS and was a pain to use, but this app lets me use the phone while I have the alarm set. It's also way cheaper and I love being able to see where my anchor is at on the map.

Great Job!

0/5 stars


On my iPhone 3G(3.1.3) when this app alarms, there is no sound; only the screen blinks. The support page just has the marketing blurb on it and the email I sent to support hasn't been answered. Other minor dislikes: it didn't show a track of boat movement and there was no way to modify lat/lon of the location.

3/5 stars

Simple but too simple.

Easy to use, but does not take into consideration the anchor circle. If I have 50 feet of anchor line out, then I could arc around a 50 ft radius of the anchor position. I want an app to allow me to set anchor, set the amount of anchor line, set my direction, and calculate the arc around the anchor. If I move outside that arc, give me an alarm.
