  1. Please consider adding speed to audible tone. It would make me a better sailor and be good for blind people too. Even better if you could set the speed range for your 'octave' say 4-7 kts for my boat. You could then make sail adjustments and 'hear' that it worked. I'd love that!

    1. Thanks for your comment. Your right that one must not hear the borrin announcement "speed zero knots, speed zero knots" all the time when the boat is not moving, I'll fix that. Your first point - having some kind of emphasis in the speech as I understood - seems to be a little bit difficult to make but also to understand for the one who uses the app. Do you have a example how this could work?
      Thanks for your comment and greetings.
