Just installed. Initial conclusion: Kinda disappointing. Negatives: unable to add launching point as a place in " my destination." The current weather data supplied did not match NOAA or weatherunderground. Kinda makes me wonder about the tidal data presentedLotsa leads to various articles on boat maintenance. Not sure how useful when on the water. Positives: "request a tow" in large red tab top center. Boat information similar to mmsi data. Can apparently register more than one boat.

Not sure if a zero star is possible...but thats what I would give it now. Version 4.6.5 does NOT work with Android 10 software. Prior to this change the app was very good. Not sure when it was changed, but it should have been tested first. Only location you can set for tides, weather, etc. is "current location"...period. Good luck trying to figure out how to make it relevant.

Terrible. The app kept crashing and redirecting to a website to log in, which repeatedly froze. After rebooting my phone I logged into the app, which resulted in a popup asking me if was enjoying the app. I clicked on "No" and was sent to a page with a 404 error. My first impression couldn't be worse.
