To use the app in a meaningful way, You must be a member of the Swedish JordenRuntSeglarKlubben, "Around the World Sailing Club".
You can send positions to JRSK with the app in two ways.
* Manually, interacting with the app whenever You wish.
* Automatically, once every 24 hours approximately. You decide for how many days maximum this can happen before the app must stop sending them. You can turn off this function whenever You wish of course. The automatic position updates work regardless of the app being in use or not and the app draws no current at all between the position updates.
If Your device has a network connection the app sends off the positions immediately. If there is no connection - as is the case most of the time at sea - the app saves Your positions and sends them all when a network connection is established. No current is drawn waiting for that to happen either.
Inside the app You use the password you have saved in "My settings / Boat's position" at the website. Note that this is a unique password for positions only and not the password You use to log on to the website!
Developed by Tom Bakken from an idea and a request of the crew of "Lilla Anna III" with thanks to Jacek Palka for technical cooperation and to Gunnar Bulukin who made it possible for many members of JRSK to use the app.
