In the 2018r2 release, any adjustments to the ETA, people on board, waypoint and destination will be texted to their emergency contacts.A new safety feature has been added to Flotilla Event. Rescue boats will now be visible to race organisers on the SafeTrx Flotilla map.

Improvements have also been made to Flotilla Event; the Flotilla event code entry is now clearer and displays in bold so that it stands out to the end user.The SafeTrx team is interested in any feedback users of the app may have, so users now have the ability to rate their experience with the app via Google Play and the Apple App Store review stars.
