I bought a newer AIS receiver to work with my Galaxy S6, it didn’t work. I contacted BoatBeacon and explained the problem; and after a few e-mails back and forth they had a free update available on Play Store within an hour after the solution was implemented. I used BoatBeacon on my Galaxy S6 with my old AIS receiver from Panama to Texas and was never concerned about ships or commercial vessels passing too close to my sailboat.
Vessel photo? Used to be able to see a photo of the vessel. This feature no longer seems to work. Five stars when this is reinstated. Otherwise, great..latest update fixed problem, five stars.
Bogus!!! No charts included!!!!! Should not call this marine navigation if after buying it you need to pay extra for charts good job tricked me in to buying it. Get navionics.
Best app out there!!! I use this app daily. It has only messed up once for me and there support was fast on it. Great job!!!!
Great customer service Had an issue with app loading when changed phones. Got good and quick customer service over email. Thank you
Works great and much cheaper than an AIS receiver!
