I appreciate all the useful discussion. I just don’t see why folks wouldn’t like a visual of an anchor on their device that shows that their anchor is set and staying set. I am a mechanical engineer and long time boater. I have teamed up with an electrical engineer to design the electronics. I have designed the deployment mechanism which is simple and foolproof. Within cell cover the system is simple and a bit more complicated for remote locations without cell cover. Is a couple hundred dollars for a reliable, positive indicator of anchor movement (distance and direction) really out of reach for most boaters? Certainly for new boaters without the years of experience some have this might be a useful add to their safety systems. The cost of a good meal in a nice restaurant for a boating family puts it into perspective.
