Problem with iRegatta on iPad 1

Since the release of iRegatta 3.35.0 users with iOS versions prior to iOS 6.0 experience crash after startup.
This is often seen on iPad 1's, cause it cannot be upgraded to iOS 6.0.

I'm quite surprised the upgrade made it through Apples approval procedure with a fault like that!

I'm currently working with Apple on how to restrict devices with iOS versions lower than 6.0 from downloading iRegatta 3.35.0, and again make the previous version available for iPad 1 users - hopefully we will come to a solution pretty soon.

iRegatta 3.35.0 with Pebble 2.0

Version 3.35.0 of iRegatta is upcoming, including these new features:
- Import of existing track files (csv format), good if you want to use the newly added "Post Race Analysis" feature on older tracks.
- Post your tracks on facebook, including duration, distance and max speed directly from iRegatta.
- Extra features in the Pebble interface.

Version 3.30.1 for iOS

Besides bug fixes, the new version has bigger buttons in the iPad version and generally higher contrast on the button ikons. This should improve the user experience when using iRegatta in bright sun light.

Android update

A new version is now available for Android, including the In-App purchase for Post Race Analysis, that iOS users got some weeks ago.

Along with the new feature, this version also has an update on button graphics. They are now at higher resolution and better contrast.

Post Race Analysis

In version 3.30.0 of iRegatta, there will be the option of buying a new feature called "Post Race Analysis". Below there is a brief description of how it works:

With this in-App purchase you'll be able to analyse your racing if you have tracked it.
Based on tracked wind information and position/course and speed, iRegatta will split your track into up and down wind legs, and each leg will be devided into starboard and port tacks.

Pebble and iRegatta

iRegatta now supports the Pebble Smartwatch.

Starting from iRegatta version 3.20.0, you can get iRegatta data onto your Pebble, and you can control the start view from the Pebble.
Race View will display COG and SOG from the iRegatta race view, and also the lift indicator. At the bottom you also got your trip max speed.
Start View will display the countdown and the distance to line. You can start, pause, sync and reset the countdown using the Pebble buttons.
Start line View will let you ping the start line ends using the Pebble buttons.

NMEA2000 and SeaTalk support

I'm currently adding NMEA2000 and SeaTalk support for the iOS version of iRegatta, using the DMK box, and NMEA2000 using SeaSmart.net.
Actually the current version of iRegatta already supports NMEA2000 from the DMK box and SeaSmart.net, I just didn't advertise it because it needed a little more testing. So far all basic input for speed, position, heading, wind etc. seems to work, but NMEA2000 AIS information and waypoint information isn't added yet.

Slight simplification of the Start View

Version 3.14.0 has brought slight changes to the start view.

The idea was to remove some buttons and make it easier to operate the most common task.
So from now on, simply tap the numbers to start the count down. If the count down is running, tap the numbers to sync to nearest minute. These are the most important tasks with the count down, the numbers are like a bigger button.
