Superb app without doubt the best out there for UK charts in my opinion. Had an issue with zooming (my issue, not mx mariner's), Will sorted it and the comms from him was amazing. Not often you get this level of support especially when you see how many downloads this app has had - I'm impressed, I really am. I think the initial purchase was value for money and the further purchases of local charts was about the same cost as a pint of beer, pretty damn good I'd say (especially as I love beer!).
Great, simple charting app that I use for fishing and navigation in NY and NJ waters. I chose it over navionics and iboating because of it's use of raster charts showing greater details and specifically vessel warning areas that the other apps seem to leave out. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because while navigating the app leaves out one important piece of information - ETA to your waypoint. If the developer adds this, along with a larger display of speed/track/heading, this would be a 5 star app.
Good value Basic but very useful chart plotter. Very good quality charts for the UK and Ireland (UKHO). Fast and works well at sea. After trying a few other ( more expensive) apps, I think this one deserves a five star rating.
Updated review..Been using MX Mariner for a year now and time for a reassessment. I think my decision to go with this app, after trying out six or seven chart plotter programs, was the right choice. The developer is very responsive and helpful. The app is is stable and fast. I am running Android 4.4 on my original model Nexus 7 and 6.1 on my Moto G3, no problems. I am not much interested in marinas but the new integration with the Active Captain database will be nice for those that are. It looks like you don't need to have Active Captain and Adobe Air installed on your tablet at all; MX downloads its own copy of the database. Since I started using MX in 2014 a number of updates have added useful features including the ability to insert, delete, and move waypoints and routes. The included utility allows one to easily make up a BC "region" with Canadian BSB3 charts for those who need them (everyone?). Highly recommended.
Reliable coastal navigation Been using this app for two years as a supplement to an on board gps chart plotter. In some cases the downloaded maps were more useful than the charts available in the on board devices (the carribean charts were excellent). Very easy to download map regions. Definitely the best deal for Android device. Only wish I could display vmg on display.
Love the app, been using it for many years. Only thing I could think of to make it better would be an AIS overlay. Any chances of this happening?
