Feature request automatic man overboord alarm
#1
Would it be great to have automatic MOB alarm and waypoint in opencpn.

I do not know anything about the programming that would be necessery to develop it.

The idea is to have a Bluetooth tag [Image: fc750d727baec3c0b5af26de509a85f5.jpg]
For every crewmember. It needs to be waterproof model. And when the Bluetooth connection is lost, a crew member is overboard, an alarm sounds and a waypoint is set.

I think thats a great idea !  Big Grin

It could wake up crew,
If attached to Autopilot then bring boat head to wind 
possibly send out a recorded MayDay message after a short time gap 

Just needs someone to do a bit of software  to link to systems

Sorry I can't help there  Sad not upto that

Cheers

Keith
