  14. Hello, Sailor for 30 years, last November, I was making my first transatlantic!! Fantastic and how many memories... But during these 15 days, I would have needed an app to see if the action of a trim (sheeting, easing, bending the mast, digging the sail, raising the tangon, ...) is positive or not. So back, I created an Android SailFreeGPS App for smartphones or tablets that in addition to displaying COG, SOG, Compas, Position, displays graphics with speed and course history; You can thus see if the new trims are positive or not (despite the waves, gusts or calms). play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.frederic.sailfreegps Moreover, since the values from the GPS are too fluctuating on our smartphones (while we advance to 6 kt stable, speed fluctuates from 4 to 8 Kt), I added a "filtering function" (average of a number of points that you can adjust). You can also adjust how many past you want to see (from 30s to 6h) I also added a MOB function (I would not have expected to go to water in the 4-5m swell during the transatlantic) and a night mode. You can see your past track on a map (google map), add Waypoints and activate goto function. You can save your track to GPX or KML file and share it Share waypoint by SMS, E-Mail, ... and import it into SailFreeGPS from received message (by copying it into the clipboard) Record your TRIP and Max speed. You can activate a night mode Bref, you can enjoy !!! and do not hesitate to provide me feedbacks or suggestions : sailfreegps@gmail.com Sorry for my bad english
