  • Charts Will Not Display

    By DrRalphC
    I upgraded to new iPad and loaded app restored my purchased charts (multiple times). The chart screen remains totally blank (black) with no charts. I have tried their support email to request help. No replies. Did not have this problem before
  • Great App - Needs improvements

    By No one 123456890
    Works great. However, it needs an option to allow location access when not using. I use anchor alarm when on anchor and it won't alarm unless the app is open. I might want to do something other than look at the chart while I'm on anchor but do want to know if I start to drift. Also, MPH would be nice to see. Only options are Km/h, knots and m/s for speed.
  • Mr SDracer wrong!!

    By Capt. Bingowings
    Check out other apps etc. !! The price is right and great support. Charts are reasonable priced and updates FREE ! Howbout that? I have been using this app for more then 4 years and very happy cruising in the caribbean and med. Actually using it! Thanks iSailor
  • Expensive

    By SDracer
    This looks like an in interesting program. Unfortunately, one could spend well over $100 on 'in app purchases' just getting started. To bad.
  • Not Impressed so far

    By Sting63
    We purchased this application since it suppose to work well with our Vesper 8000 AIS we just purchased before we head to the Bahamas for the winter. We purchased the maps for the Bahamas also with the apps and there are areas that we cruise in the Exumas that are data just note (Dredging 2 meters)....these are area we sail through and use the Garmin Blue Water and Explorer Chartbooks to seeing this blank area on the apps made me wonder if there were anymore out there. I contacted the APP maker and they validated the omission and said it would be corrected in the next release but no specific date when that would be. So overall....I guess it's a decent apps but recommend you have backup valid charts or applications.
  • Amazing Nav App - Why bother with a chartplotter??

    By ThomasWeissJr
    One of the best Nav apps out in my opinion! I use this each time I go sailing and have no complaints. One feature I would like to see added is a depth alarm feature that will sound whenever GPS places you in water that's charted under a certain depth.
  • Good app but charts are off

    By TheIrish33
    I've been using this app for the last month now I love the UI and the functionality. I use it for rec and fishing charts on iPad Air 2 in miami. Still wish it had a few more features but that anchor alarm is perfect I love to see a real sharp graphic of where I drift. Beats my gps for a millionth of the cost. But chart depths seem to be off from my other charts and avg readings. I boat in the bay a lot avg 5 to 12 ft deep but chart avg 1 to 6 ft. I guess that is better then the other way around. Just worries me sometimes in new areas when it states 0ft when I'm in 4 ft.i wonder if it's based on a deeper keel as I drive a 23 hydra sport and not a sailboat. If so would be nice in boat settings to be able to adjust that to reflect on charts .
