Great app for armchair sailing and on the boat Loaded on my Samsung tablet, also runs with my phone. Haven't used on the water yet but it looks like it will work, especially as a backup or second display. GPS tracks position without data connection. Can tether to my phone to download a chart for a harbour enroute so long as I have a data connection. The price of the app is equal to one paper chart. Great value. UPDATE Used frequently for cruising off Vancouver Island. Terrific app and value. Can plan the route at home and open it up on board.
Really like the app and have it on my phone and tablet. I compared it to other apps and prefer this one. Compared to the chart plotter on my boat, it acquires and maintains satellites better and uses less power. I would really like it if i could click on features for more info, but maybe in later versions. For this, i would have given it a 4.5, but rounded up.
DANGER Great program but missing critical charts In Canada Ontario charts are missing! Critical high resolution charts for that Georgian Bay Small craft route and The Trent Severn Canal system and possibly more! You can be travelling along in bad weather and then find the chart is not supplied in an area full of rocks and shallow water. I brought it to their attention last year and it has not been fixed. Be aware North of Britt on small craft route you will need an alternate program or paper charts to navigate.
This is an easy to use accurate navigation program. The auto follow feature is great and the app is intuitive. I had a slight problem with the charts and got great support to resolve the issue. Works great on my tablet and well worth the money.
App is OK, but support seems to be lacking, I used it on a boat trip last year and again on a cruise this spring, but now I wanted to download some new maps and it seems to have lost the activation key and will not download. .and I seem to lost my emails from purchase and asked for them to resend but apparently are being ignored. .. asked both via their website and via email .. both ingnored. do not buy if you expect any support and service. If your comment below is true, why was this not put on the info and explained before the purchase, rather than let purchasers believe that this was a longer term purchase. ... possibly because they would not then purchase!!! so what must one do. purchase the entire package again, surely a second subscription should be severely discounted.
Good navigation app I used it on a trip to the Broughton Islands this summer. Very stable on my Motorola xoom. Could have better place name descriptions, like island names and towns.
