WHY USE THIS APP?

Save money on very expensive fuel and get to your destination faster by planning your trip using tidal currents.


TRIP PLANNER OVERVIEW:

• After selecting the date for your trip and your boat's cruising speed, you’ll then use the map to click on each Tidal Current Station map marker from your starting point to your ending point. As you click on each Tidal Current markers, you will see that station being added to the trip plan located above the map. After you have selected all your tidal current stations, you’ll click “CALCULATE TRIP.” (see screen captures below)


• And now for the power of this app… You will be given a few choices on what time you should leave and what time you will arrive based on the tidal currents from the start of your trip to the end. Pick the quickest trip and save time and money on fuel!


• The results will show you multiple times when you should start your trip and will estimate how long it will take you.


• The tidal currents are plotted and displayed for you to verify the results. This helps you to fine-tune your next boating trip.

I give this app zero stars. The closest current station it gives me is 3900 miles away.

We have apps for each coast of the United States (East/Gulf/West/Alaska). You need to purchase the proper version for where you use your boat. We try to describe which coast each app is used for in the full description.
