What’s New

Polar Log feature – this feature allows you to record polar data based on the wind axis you entered at the start of your session, to later obtain a plot of max speed vs wind angle on a PC / Mac. To use this feature first go into the main menu and enable polar logging. The instant log, records max speed Vs angle off the wind, every second without filters, and as a result, if you preform fast tacks / gybes / you will have unsustainable speeds recorded against some of the angles. The Average log reduces this by adding 5 seconds of recordings together, and averaging the resulting vector out. And by ignoring all speed values that occur when the heading is not steady. </p>

Thanks, - as always, if you have any suggestions pass them too me. Next on my agenda, is to enable a polar plot on the watch face, that will appear at the end of the session as you exit.

Fantastic functionality, great support from developer - the most useful app for sail racing on a Garmin watch

I would not have purchased a Quatix 5, if I had not learned about this app! The app is proving to be very versatile and intuitive. It is a useful tool for quick assessment of boat position relative to marks/waypoints. Helps to determine position relative to laylines and whether one is on the favored tack or gybe relative to the waypoint. Updates seem to be coming fast and furious.
