This app is useful for passage races. I use it together with Velocitek which gives me COG & SOG and the watch gives me bearing to the next mark. The app would be even better if it would follow the course so that it would automatically switch to the next waypoint when you reach the waypoint.

Latest version works well when racing as you can now keep the order of the marks as you enter them, or find more quickly. I use once underway alongside Garmin Sail Race for managing the start. The VMG to the waypoint is the most useful function when racing. Not a replacement for full on racing software but excellent for the basics whatever position you are on the boat.

Great sailing app. I use it for river and offshore racing, which wasn't really its primary application but it is very useful. It is stable and gives a good amount of information on various screens / topics. Handy that you can switch most screens on or off. It is quick and easy to use while you are sailing. Battery usage is good.

Tengo un gamin foreruner 735. Me he instalado está aplicación y me ha bloqueado el reloj si no pago 5€. Lo considero una estafa por que no avisa que hay que pagar y por que me bloquea el teléfono sin avisar.

Hello sir, you should read the app description before leaving a bad review, it's not blocked, you only have to push menu button to access menu

Best sailing app on Garmin watch so far. Count time timer, VMG to way point very useful for regatta and club racing. This app will earn another star if possible to incorporate start line information with the count down timer on the same screen (may be it's there already, just can't find it myself). Great job, Cheers

This is extortion. Just downloaded this “free” app and have to donate 5€ to clear my watch-screen so that I can use it again. Now I cannot uninstall and I cannot use my watch unless I pay up. RUBBISH

Why import gpx waypoints does not take the name? I have plenty of waypoints but need to manual type the name. For the rest the app is great

This app may or may not work. I could not get it to function and when you try switch to another function it goes to a request screen asking for a 5 euro " donation" before you can leave the page. The only way to leave the app is by turning the watch completely off. Perhaps it has been compromised by some sort of malware but this should never be downloaded for any reason.

Hello sir Can you read all the description please ? The menu button is the middle left, and with the menu you can exit the app

Diese Software hat sich in der Praxis sowohl auf Binnenseen als auch Offshore hervorragend bewährt. Ich habe so manchen neidvollen Blick von Mitseglern erlebt "Oh, wo gibt's denn so was? Das will ich auch haben!".

Super appli, très complète et bien faite. Je m'en sers des que je suis sur l'eau. Par contre j'ai un problème : l'enregistrement se met sur pause au bout de quelques dizaines de minutes systématiquement alors que la montre est verrouillée (même après mise a jour de l'application). Une solution ??? Merci Julien

Very nice app - I'm using it for sea kayaking - easy to input new waypoints - much easier to use than the clunky waypoints feature on my DSC VHF handset! Nice auto start / stop feature for recording motion

Great app! Using it on a Quatix3. I create routes in the "isailor", save them as gpx files and then load them into "Sailing waypoints" using the free app "r.485". Easy and quick and then I can check my VMC towards the waypoints on the watch :) The anchor watch also alarms directly when drifting outside the area which allows time to take Actions before stranding .....

Great app. Excellent support. The new timer function works well. To newcomers, be sure to long-press the menu button to access the app's optional features or Exit. To access GPX data I auto interface all Garmin activities to Strava and pick it up from there; is simple, easy and consistent.

App works properly. Good assistent for sailors. Way Points can be planned via connect App. Support is good and very fast. Just the track saving should be improved. Why do I need in the iPhone with r.485 a second app. The tracksaving is not working good. Sometimes tracks are missing or it takes long, until you see the activity on connect. After improving this I would rate the app with 5 stars

The application maybe works fine but I can’t stop and return back to my normal screen. I need power off and on again. There is a message , you can pay 5 euros it is not much to disappear the screen. This is a hijack of the watch. So I uninstalled

Cette application me parait excellente, il faut juste se familiariser avec son fonctionnement et comprendre qu'on ne peut ajouter ou modifier des waypoints qu'avec Garmin connect et ne pas oublier de cliquer sur save, tout à la fin de la liste de waypoints.

Bonjour Olivier On peut ajouter des waypoints ou en supprimer directement sur la montre. Pour l'ajout, c'est uniquement à la position actuelle (tu ajoute ta position comme un nouveau waypoint, et le nom est automatiquement donné)
