iRegatta now supports the Airmar DST810 Bluetooth multisensor

With iRegatta2 version 1.14.0 and iRegatta/iRegatta Pro version 4.43.0 the Airmar DST810 Multisensor can now connect directly using BTLE to provide Depth, Speed through Water, Water temperature and Attitude (Pitch/Roll) data to the app.

If you have a NMEA2000 system you can hook it up to that, but even without, simply supply the DST810 with 12V and you can get the data into iRegatta using BTLE.

Use the Airmar CAST™ app to calibrate the sensor, and after that, you're good to go.

New "Race Control" feature in iRegatta2

The Race Control feature will allow several iPads to connect and let a Race Committee remote controll the participants start count down, share wind information (if the participants don't have NMEA wind data) and even set out a race course boundary, as you've seen it in the Americas Cup or the SailGP series.

Read more about it in the users manual.

Map flickering finally fixed

With iOS 13.2 Apple introduced a problem for apps like iRegatta and iRegatta2 that use third party maps. When ever overlaying graphics like bearing og laylines updated, the underlaying map tiles where flickering/reloading.

With the resently released iOS 13.4 this problem finally has been fixed.

New map option for iRegatta2

With version 1.05.0 of iRegatta2 comes the option for an alternative Wärtsilä map, if you have a wärtsilä map subscription in iRegatta2.

Besides the existing maps (Wärtsilä Auxiliary), that have been available so far, comes "Wärtsilä Main" as an alternative. Go to settings to switch between the two, and find out which one suits your needs the best.

Improved Watch App

With iRegatta/iRegatta Pro version 4.38.0 comes an update of the iRegatta Watch App. The main change is that iRegatta now handles your sailing as a workout session.

There are a few advantages to this:

iRegatta 2 released

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.
