There’s an app for that: Intelligent Maintenance offers an iPhone app for man overboard situations.
Touch the MOB button, call the Coast Guard with the coordinates of the position displayed on the screen, and follow the arrow that shows the direction to the MOB point. Of course, the boat must be in cellphone range for the app to work.
Download it from the App Store for $1.99. www.intelligentmaintenance.com
