Android Development Path
I have been looking for weeks for tactical racing software and had been looking at Sailclever for PDA's - unfortunately it looks like they are out of business. So I was delighted to stumble across iRegatta! It looks absolutely fantastic and just what I need.
So now I'm planning to acquire all the hardware to run it. I have never been an Apple fan and would prefer to run it on a Samsung Galaxy note. This helps because the hardware (Tacktick NMEA + Serial Bluetooth Dongle) is cheaper than that require to run the iPhone (Tacktick NMEA + WiFi Multiplexer).
The problem is that it looks like the iPhone App is far further along the development path. I especially like the ability to capture a waypoint using photographs!!! It will be really useful where course marks are moved during or between races.
I note that the Android version doesn't seem to have this (and a few other features). So I was wondering if you intend to add these in later releases? Also, is it possible to record all the NMEA data from the instruments for analysis on a PC later? - I am especially interested in Strip Charts for True Wind Speed True Wind Angle, Mean Wind Direction, Boat Speed, Leeway, and heel angle and hoped that I could somehow record them..
Maybe you could post a comparative feature list or something?
Anyway, really looking forward to being another customer and thanks so much for devoting your time to this project. Very impressed.
