How to use Nebo (15)

If you would like to make your own weather notes in your log, it is easy to add or edit weather observations in Nebo.

Nebo’s weather is sourced from Dark Sky which is one of the most accurate sources of hyperlocal weather information. However it is sometimes nice to be able to add real-time local conditions.

If you would like to edit or add your own weather information, here’s how:

  • Standby > Prepare for voyage > Start >
  • Click on the ‘pen icon’ above the map. Here you can write your own log notes.
  • Click on the ‘Weather’ tab and you can also edit the auto-populated weather and/or add your own weather observations.
  • Click on DONE, your weather notes are recorded and you are taken back to the map screen.

Sometimes it’s necessary to add multiple skippers to a boat. If you share ownership of your boat, it’s great to have Nebo automatically report on usage.

If each skipper uses Nebo, your Monthly Report will have a section for each skipper, showing their hours, distance traveled etc.

In order for Nebo to correctly report of shared usage, it’s important that your vessel is ‘created’ in Nebo only once. Additional skippers can then be registered to that boat.

Let’s presume you’ve added the vessel to Nebo, and that you now want to add a new skipper.

  • First, ask the new skipper to create an account in Nebo, but to skip the boat registration step.
  • When they’ve done that, tap Other > Profile > My Boats on your device.
  • You’ll see your boat in the list. If you don’t, you can add your boat by tapping the “+” icon.
  • To add the additional skipper, tap on your boat name, scroll to the bottom of the screen, and tap “Edit users”. Next, tap the “+” icon at the top of the screen.
  • Enter the new skipper’s email address. Note that this must be the email address they entered when they created their Nebo account.

That’s it! When the new skipper restarts Nebo, they’ll be able to start a voyage using your boat, and you’ll both receive a monthly report detailing boat usage.
