Can I just set my anchor coordinates?

It seems really useful to me to be able to input the coordinates of my anchor. It doesn't look like that's possible with this app. Instead, I can just mark the anchor at my current location. The chances of me pulling out my phone and running this app while I'm dropping my anchor is zero. I'll typically drop a waypoint on my chart plotter, though, so I have the coordinates.

Developer Response ,

Hello, you can set the coordinates in the Anchor Plus version. You can drop the waypoint when setting the anchor, thereafter enter the bearing and distance from the vessel to that waypoint into Anchor Basic when setting the anchor alarm.
