Boatspeed 1.8.4  comes with a new tracking - handler that consumes less energy  and provides new modes:  Regatta - mode stores your position every 30 seconds, while the distance to the last position must be at least 10 meters. The location is not stored if the accuracy is not alt lease 10 m. By this a lot of data is produced and a lot of battery consumed, so this mode only fits for few hours. It uses the system-tracking handler as before.

Use this mode if you want just an overview for your trip or if you are sailing far from the coast. Further on  speeded up the routes creation  in navigation we. We  c
