About Sail Expert - Navigation, Instruments, Logs & NMEA

The Sailing Expert application supports navigation, racing, helps sailors to keep their logbook accurate and
up-to-date, keep maintenance log for different boats.

The device's sensors are used to fill the log (location, COG, SOG, temperature, pressure).
If a WiFi NMEA provider is available the boat sensors will be used instead.

Supported NMEA Sentences:
GGA, GLL, GNS, RMC - Positioning
HDG, HDM, HDT, VHW - Heading
VBW, VHW, VTG - Course, speed
VLW - Trip log
DBT, DBP - Depth
RPM - Engine revolutions
MDA, MHU, MMB, MTA, MTW, MWD, MWV, VWR, VWT - Meteo/weather conditions

This application does not require an internet connection nor any registration for its function.

While sailing you can use routes to navigate, fix a concrete bearing or target point of interest (POI) you want to sail to. The application will tell you the target course or alert if you are off course, calculate the remaining distance and estimated time of arrival (ETA).

On regattas the application helps you to cross the startline on time and with optimal speed and time.

While on anchor the app monitors your location and alarms you if drifted outside the set area.

Scanned maps can be imported and setup up as a map source for your trips. Custom map servers can also be used with this application (OpenSea maps, OpenStreet maps, etc)

Trips or their parts can be exported to CSV, GPX and PDF. Logged data can be synchronized with https://sail.expert where it can be viewed and edited.

See https://sail.expert for more details.
