If you have good iRegatta polars for your boat, send them Let's Create and we can make them available to all users for download.
iRegatta on Android has finally been tested with Wifi Ad-hoc UDP.
As far as I can see, Android still doesn't support Ad-hoc in version 4.0.4 (might be hardware dependent), but with a hack I managed to make Ad-hoc work on Android 3.2 on my XOOM tablet. With that I was able to test iRegatta with the "DMK box" with success.
Don't ask me for tips on how to make Ad-hoc work on your Android device, cause I'm absolutely no expert on that - it took me a week to find the right approach on my tablet, but there's plenty of articles about it on the internet...
WiFi NMEA input has been added to the Android version 2.60.
You can choose TCP or UDP WiFi in the settings.
Due to limited test facilities and lack of a test device with Android 4.0, this should be considered Beta.
It has only been tested with infrastructure WiFi TCP, not with UDP and not with Ad-Hoc WiFi!

A new version is on it's way, and it has some great new features.
A new "Trim" button in the Statistics View, let's you trim/uptimize your polars.
In the sample below only a few values have been typed in for the one side of the polar. A tap on the Trim button an values have been mirrored and interpolated - also interpolated across windspeeds. This will make it a lot easier to get a valid polar.
It's now possible to save temporare waypoints
... for approval, expected available within 2 weeks.
New features include wind history graph
Setting to chose magnetic or true NMEA compass heading
Next leg preview when navigating a route
Import/export has become free
Minor bug fixes
Keep an eye with the App Store for updates.
Version 2.30 has been released, and with that the polar import/export feature has become available.
2.31 will get released pretty soon, and will also include waypoints and routes import/export.
iRegatta for iOS has an In-App-Purchase where you can import and export polars.
A new release has been submitted to Apples App Store, and with a little luck this should be available around christmas.
In this new release you can also import and export waypoints in the GPX file format from the In-App-Purchase. This feature is located in the lower left corner of the statistics view (when version 2.70 is released).
The big news in this version is the ability to receive NMEA input via BlueTooth.
This allows you to get wind, GPS, depth, compass and other instrument data into iRegatta to improve the quality of your data.
iOS and Android devices kind of compliment each other in this matter.
On one hand Apple restricts the use of BlueTooth, which makes it impossible to receive NMEA data over a Bluetooth connection. But if you have a device that establishes a WiFi network, you can make an Ad Hoc connection and get your data using the TCP or UDP protocol.
