The next generation iRegatta has been released.
The original iRegatta app was launched back in the autum of 2009, before the iPad was on the marked. It has always been a focus point not to introduce features than couldn't also work well on an iPhone.
In iRegatta 2, this has changed. It's an iPad only app taking advantage of the bigger display. It's been rebuild entirely from the bottom, focusing on a more flexible user interface, where the user can customize the layout to serve his needs.
Update: the beta program is full, no more beta testers needed.
iRegatta Second Generation is about to be ready, and I'm looking for users willing to beta test and report back bugs or shortcomings.
I'll pick the first 10 who sign up.
-iRegatta 2 only runs on iPads and require iOS 9.3 or newer.
-Preferable you get NMEA data over WiFi and/or use a Bluetooth anemometer.
Please send a mail to info(a)zifigo.com if you are interested in becoming a beta tester.
From version 4.33.0, iRegatta supports the wireless ultrasonic anemometer from Calypso Marine Instruments. (https://calypsoinstruments.com/shop)
This little brilliant device is a lot more than just an anemometer. Besides wind speed and direction, it also works as an electronic compass and delivers pitch and roll angles as well.
It's solar powered, has no moveable parts and is IPX8 rated, which makes it perfect for small boats and dinghies as well as bigger boats.
