Installing Orca in your boat
Getting started with OrcaSubscription
Tools and functionalityCartography
Stop worrying if your anchor is dragging and if you are drifting away from your anchored location. Let Orca take care of it, activate the Anchor watch in your App, and enjoy peace of mind while at sea. The Anchor watch will monitor your position and it will send off an alarm if your boat leaves a predefined area on the map.
At a glance
Automatic position tracking system and monitoring with auditive alarms.
High flexibility to define a geofenced area to adapt to the topography of the area.
Visual aids to help you identify where you dropped your anchor.
Set Anchor watch
Easily activate the Anchor watch mode by opening the main menu and pressing on the Anchor watch.
Before setting the anchor location, you may define the security area. If the boat leaves the security area, an auditive alarm will be activated. Press Lock to boat location if your anchor location is right below your boat. The security area will be centered around your current position.
If you think there is an offset between your current position and the anchor, you can move the security area by panning the map. You can see in the map breadcrumbs of your past locations to help you identify the position of your anchor.
You can also define the shape of the security area by modifying the following parameters:
Offset - Add or reduce the offset between your current position to the anchor location.
Radius - Define the maximum distance you allow your boat to move within the security area without activating the alarm.
Drop angle - Define the orientation of the security area where you allow your boat to move.
Cone angle - Define the shape of the security area. The shape is defined as a cone that you can expand it into a full circle.
Anchor watch alarms
Once you have set the security area, press Set anchor location to activate the Anchor watch. As soon as you activate the Anchor watch, the security will turn blue indicating that it is active.
If your boat leaves the security area a two-stage alarm will be set off.
The first one will notify you with a red screen and a mild sound. If you do not take an action, after 30 seconds the sound will increase, raising the alarm level.
You can stop the alarm by pressing Stop on the Anchor watch mode.
