iRegatta

iRegatta is a tactical Regatta application as well as a crusing navigation application for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. (Devices without GPS only with NMEA input via WiFi, Android devices can also get NMEA input via Bluetooth - see below).

Read the Users Manual here for iOS and for Android.

The build-in GPS unit and the unique graphical possibilities of these devices, makes them ideal for such an application.

iRegatta vs iRegatta Pro
The two apps have the same capabilities, but iRegatta is for free and can run for 4 minutes for evaluation, before it stops receiving GPS and NMEA data. With In-App Purchases you can buy access to the parts of iRegatta you need. iRegatta Pro has the Basic, NMEA and AIS features enabled. Other In-App purchases are available in both versions.

Features
If your boat has other instruments (GPS and wind instrument) and a device that broadcasts these NMEA informations over WiFi (iOS and Android) or BlueTooth (Android only), you can now use these informations instead of the phone/tablets build in GPS. And this way an iPod touch or iPad without GPS can be used as well.

The following hardware has been proved by the manufactors to work with iOS devices
