Unbelievable app! Best sailing app yet! Except why won’t it output speed in the activity review? I only get elevation, HR and temperature. Could you update to output speed in the activity report? Or if it does for you, help figure out how to see that part of the data? Great app really loving it! If you were to make additional improvements: 1) VMG, would be great to see that somewhere. I think you have everything you need to calculate it, would be the best thing to add if you could. 2) speed history. If you look at the app “tackingmaster” it shows a simple graph of speed over time. This is a great tool for see how small changes in trim, direction etc affects your speed over time, would be a great add as well. Honestly, best app and would love to see those small changes. Telling everyone about this one. Thanks, Codie
