Whenever there is a new alert, a 'red dot' will appear next to the 'Alerts' item on the main menu
For SOS (Emergency) Alert:
- A red coloured, attention grabbing SOS widget will show up on the user's screen - irrespective of which tab he is viewing. This widget won't get dismissed until user clicks on 'View'.
- A pulsating ring of circles will also show up around the boat's icon on the map until the SOS alert is closed.
