The Android app Transponder version 1.0 is now available for use with SailTracker and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. The app is configured by entering the code for the racing event provided by Sailtracker.net or the race coordinator.
First, get and install the app:
Click on “Settings” and enter the configuration code provided by the race organizers or Sailtracker.net and click on “Configure”.
If all is correct, the app will respond “Configuration successful.”
When ready to start tracking, go to the main screen and press “Start”. The screen background will turn black when tracking is started. When “Connection” reads “GPSOK” the app is actively tracking on Sailtracker:
NOTE: It is highly recommended that the phone be connected to external power as GPS use decreases battery life substantially.
It’s also recommended to place the phone in a location with the least amount of material between it and the sky (particularly metal objects) to optimize GPS signal.
