Calcul depth for speed under nominal speed for many divers including Dipsies and JetDivers and also new linear computation for Copper lines
Dipsy Troller is an app for smartphone to interactively get the length of trolling line initially for the Dipsy Troller de Luhr Jensen and some others divers from the same company.
As fishermen, we have all opened our fishing box to find that the user data of the divers have been soaked and is unreadable or that we can't find it. It happened to me and to my fishing buddy, so I decided to write this app. The truth is also that to find the right length considering all the factors: the size, the ring, the line, the plates... while driving the boat, putting lines to the water, trying to not hook ourselves, looking at the sonar, trying to get the thermocline depth, adding waypoint when seeing fishes, listening radio for other reports is difficult to say the least. 9 years ago, smartphones were only starting to be in all fishermen pocket but now it is clearly in all pockets.
Dipsies have a very simple data table, while the two values per cell, with or without the ring, make it clearly more difficult to read. But some of the other divers have larger and more complex data tables with tens of columns and rows and even many pages. Now that apps are omnipresent, it was the right time to do another version with more divers.
Version version 2.0.5b21
We got a request about lower than nominal speeds.So it's true that by design the app doesn't compute the speed under the minimal speed given by the manufacturer. We have added an option, disabled by default, to add this function. It will calculate the speed under 2MPH for all of the Dipsies but also JetDivers, Dreamweaver, BigJon, Chinook, Copper Lines, DeepSix, Slide Diver, TripZ and TruTrip. As usual it is utterly dependant of the buoyancy of the lure itself.
In the mean time, we find out an inconsistency between the narrative of the Copper Line help and the calculator. The documentation of the copper line usually states a simple linear algorithm which looks like the lead line: 8 feet depth for 50 feet of line. Some manufacturers think that the copper line doesn't go straight down but as with a parabola. It's our thinking too but we added a new parameter to give you the ability to choose your best bet.
Ratings and Reviews
Would be a great app if the could get it correct.
Lines lengths can not be shorter the Dept’s. Favorite feature doesn’t work.
