Version 6.2 for iOS has been available since April 17 on the AppStore. As usual, the version for Android will follow in a few days with a planned release on the Play Store (Google) around April 28th.
This version continues the great Avalon Offshore fairing started with version 6. This time, we are improving the NMEA screen.
The new screen allows a much more synthetic reading of navigation data. The 12 side indicators (on shelf) are fully configurable. We have reduced the number of indicators from 12 to 8 on the phone to maintain good readability while sailing, for those of you who prefer to use a phone in the cockpit.
The 3 small “cleats” around the compass indicate:
- The direction of the wind (from) in blue
- The direction of the current (to) in green
heading towards the target in yellow.
If you are currently in the Avalon Offshore (free) test period (see here: https://www.avalon-routing.com/en/avalon-offshore-test-offer/ , you can update your test version and continue with this new version.
To update, go to the STORE module and click on “Update”
Happy sailing…. and make the most of your sailboat with Avalon Offshore!
