Once the MOB alarm is triggered, it gets increasingly pressing with each second that passes, even if your device was on silent. In addition to an alarm, your phone or tablet will vibrate and flash its camera strobe light. After an alarm is confirmed, the app then guides the user back to the MOB’s locations, requiring zero input.
The screen simply displays an on-screen vessel image and the icon moves relative to your boat, steer it dead ahead and the green icon will increase in size as you approach the victim. There’s no map reading involved. The CrewWatcher has been tested to perfrom 30x faster than an AIS beacon and is small enough to fit anywhere on a sailor’s gear. The CrewWatcher boasts an incredible battery life, lasting more than three years even with regular use. At just 89.99, with no subscriptions fees and the app included, you can’t put a better price on peace of mind and safety, especially when offshore.
