DragQueen is a simple anchor alarm. It provides distance and GPS accuracy alarms along with an alarm delay. The alarm is quite annoying and is the perfect thing to waken you at night if it detects anchor dragging to your specifications.

Never use DragQueen as the sole source for any type of navigation.

The source code will be made available for DragQueen in the hopes that others will take it and enhance it. The app was written in Adobe AIR providing iOS and Android versions from the exact same code.

DragQueen was developed by the developers of ActiveCaptain.

This app works well and is very simple. If the alarm won't sound, it's settings, probably media volume. If the GPS doesn't work, it's prolly off too.

Lollipop Worked well with Android 4.4 stopped working with 5.0 Lollipop. Been out for the last 6 mo. and really miss it on my phone ( Nexus 5 ). Could you please fix it? !!!!

Best I've found! Far more versatile and useful than most. Allows manual inputting of position. Tracks accuracy of GPS and alarms if GPS degrades past a point YOU set! Awesome feature! The alarm will wake the dead. It has saved us twice when our anchor didn't set well. Now, if it had mapping with a drift circle, it would be perfect!

No Alarm Drag Queen works except for the Alarm. It never sounds.

Depends on your boat On my boat, gps reception in the cabin is intermittent on my Samsung Droid. Makes the drag queen useless. It depends on the thickness and materials of your hull and cabin.

Requires that Adobe AIR be installed separately.

Great app, a feature that would be great is to have an alarm option that would call or text the alarm so you could leave the boat and get the alarm on a different phone.

A sure battery killer! I don't know how to exit the app. And it never seems to stop the GPS.

Froze on the instructions. Unuseable.

Sleep soundly It's trustworthy. Thanks so much for the great app. Yeah, it'll kill the battery... leave your phone plugged in upstairs. The alarm is LOUD. If the alarm isn't sounding, you aren't setting it right. Takes some messing with before bed time because the usability is a little lame. After you figure it out, it's priceless. Used it all summer.

Does What it Says, But Not What I Want I already have GPS and AIS based anchor drag alarms. They work fine and are on equipment intended for marine use and are on all the time away from a dock anyway. What I want is an anchor alarm that lets me know when I have swung out of a particular sector. Perhaps they'll add this eventually and perhaps someone will come along with a android device built for use in the marine environment. Tired of having to keep my android stuff in a box.

Saved my boat Anchored with my family on our 37 foot yacht. Alarm started going off in the middle of the night. Wind had come up and we were slipping. We were able to pull up anchor and move to another location because this app alerted us of imminent danger. Thanks!!!

Failed alarm test. Not reliable. Alarm set for 100 feet, but alarm sounded at 940 feet. Reinstalled with no improvement.

Looks like a good idea. Tried it on a recent sailing trip. There is a math error such that the longitude comes up negative (-82 degrees for Florida). This is minor if consistent. My real problem with it is that I would enable the alarm, but every time I went back in to check it, the alarm was off. It never made a sound even though we did drag the anchor that night. And it didn't make a sound as we left anchor the next morning. I need to experiment some with this, but I think it is a bit rough yet.

Requires additional software to run I down loaded it but then I was told to download Adobe air to make the app work. No thanks. I'll delete the app.
