Main Page

This is the running page of AnchorWatch where you see:

- the Home position. The position recorded when you last pressed the button Set Home

- A line where you can set the allowed distance from home.

- A selection line where you can choose between setting the limit in meters, kilometers, yards or miles.

- Your current position.

- Current distance from your home position, direct by air.

(The last line goes green when you press the Start button. It goes red when you go above the Radius Max Distance from the home position, and back to green when you are within the limit.)

 - A map with a circle where the Green marker is your home position and the blue marker is the current position. The green circle is the max drift before the Bell will chime, if you have pressed Start.  


If the bottom right button displays Bell a bell will chime when you are above the max allowed distance.

Bells and colored warnings will only chime/display when the Start/Stop button displays Stop.



This page has 7 buttons at the bottom. 


- “Set Home” Will set your home position that the app calculates your current distance to.


-“” will bring you to the home page where you can find the manual, our other apps and details about us.


-“Start/  Stop” Will start (or stop) the warning part of the app and also start/stop the background operations for when sample your device is in your pocket. On later devices if a “1” displays on the app icon the app is running in the background.


-“1.0” Displays the current version of the installed app Radius Limit.


“Manual” brings you to this page of the Radius Limit manual on the website.


-”EN” this button indicates the language AnchorWatch is currently displayed in. Pressing it will cycle through the different languages.


-“Bell / NoBell” Displays/selects whether the app will play a waning chime when the set max distance limit is exceeded..


A long press on either + or — for distance limit will result in 100 being added/subtracted.


A new Home position can not be set while alarm monitor is running (Stop is showing on Start/Stop button).



The volume of the chiming is controlled by the normal volume buttons of your device. Press volume up on your device then press the 3 dots and adjust the volume for “Media” (second from left) to desired level.


To ensure continuous background running on later versions of Android you will have to open; Android Settings - Battery and device care - Battery - Background usage limits - Never sleeping apps - and add MCA AnchorWatch to the list. Else the OS will quickly kill the background process that does the alert chiming.


WARNING: This app is completely dependant on your device, should be used for information only and is not to be depended on for the safety of yourself or your vessel.
