The application will automatically track your sailing route in a configurable interval. Time to time you will be reminded to make a manual detailed log containing weather conditions, engine status, sails and light configuration among others. A trip can be paused and resumed any time. For faster and more detailed log entries, shortcuts, i.e., engine, weather, sails, lights, narrative, and photo, are available on the home screen or in the drawer. This will create a partial log entry keeping your logbook detailed.
This application does not require an internet connection for basic function.
While sailing you can fix a concrete bearing or target point you want to sail to and the application will tell you the target course. An alarm, if you are off course can be also set up.
The narrative section is for log relevant events on board. It helps you to create the narrative section in your log book and create entries "diver down", "assistance required", etc.
The help section contains some useful information for sailors. This includes, among others, COLREG 72, ICS, NATO and RNCS flags and Beaufort scale.
