The iPhone app iFindMyShip helps to localize and head to an anchored yacht, e. g. with a dinghy. The app helps to find the ship when it is out of sight, e. g. when returning to the yacht by night.
When leaving the yacht, the anchoring position can be saved by pressing one button. When the position of the yacht is saved, the app points to the ship (in degrees), displays the distance to the ship and shows your own direction of movement (if the iPhone is yawing).
When starting the program, the pointer view is shown. In case a ship position is saved, this position will be used immediately – the position is also saved when the device is turned off – if the operation system of the device is iOS 4 or higher. The saved position of the ship can only be cleared when erasing it manually.
