My boat drags the anchor often in the grassy bottom and windy conditions where we boat. I set the alarm on a fixed Garmin at helm and I can hear it in the cabin ... but my boat is small and I sleep with one eye open. It works exactly like rwidman described it above.

I also experimented with AnchorAlert app for iPhone/iPad. It works more like your Nobeltec where you set a perimeter. There are other similar apps out there. You do not need cell coverage for this to work (after you load the map of that area), just decent GPS signal in your cabin, or wherever your iPhone/iPad is located.
Best ... Richard
