Hi, All,

I'm looking for an iPhone anchor alarm (iOS 12) and am fine with paying the App Store a few bucks for a good one.

Many thanks for recommendations.

Me too. I looked on my phone because I knew I had one. It's called Drag Queen, but it seems it won't work with iOS12 and hasn't been updated in quite awhile. I just deleted it.

I ve used DragQueen for years until it became obsolete. Very crude though without graphics

For the last 3 months I ve been using the buikdnjn anchor alarm in Aquamap. Excellent, reliable and unlike DragQueen it runs in the background even when the phone is off

I only use aquamap in the Bahamas where it uses Explorer charts. Much more accurate than Navionics. There are dozens of spots where Navionics will get you aground down here. The limited US section i have looks pretty good

Check out Drag Alarm or Anchor Time.
I haven’t yet checked out but one of them claims it sends a msg if the boat drags and you’re ashore.
