  • Excellent App

    By SV NoRush
    I sail around the cost of South Africa and have found this to be an excellent app to back up my navigation - my iPad and this app have become my chart plotter at a very affordable price. The only issue I had was when I upgraded and renewed my subscription the information wasn’t to clear on how todo that but now that it is installed and running I am very happy and can confidently recommend this app to others.
  • GPS good / Maps pretty good

    By Jeff slotto
    Not all Lakes marked in some states but support works with you and adds them in updates. This mainly applies to areas that have been flooded for a decade or longer - Midwest. Gps and map functions are very good.
  • Gps works great and follows along in decent time

    Is a great marine gps, kept us from getting lost many times
  • Love this for fishing!

    By DontResistTheSuit
    Linked to my iPhone for gps the real time tracking works Great on the Hood Canal in Washington. I am able to chart the path that I want to run my downriggers through and use the depth finder as a secondary tool. Does exactly what I was hoping it would do.
  • Effective, cheap, easy!

    By Team Strain
    We boat in multiple locations from Delaware watershed and Pennsylvania lakes, to Hampton's, to Atlantic City, Virginia Beach, occasionally in Northern California... Usable simple maps, obtained as downloads after app purchase.... I have been very pleased by the ease of use, quality of tracking, and ability to download decent quality maps to remote areas as we reach them. My family agrees that excellent bang-for-buck. Having compared to standard nautical charts, is perfectly adequate for routine navigation. Wish List: - that maps could be automatically downloaded based on boater's location - automatic centering of your location... can require re-clicking in screen to re-center your location - advanced information on docking locations and communication channels imbedded in maps... But really happy I can grab my iPhone in a waterproof case and navigate almost anywhere for a couple of bucks!
  • The best cat-fisherman solution

    I dont have a boat, because this app very helpful to choose deepest place to fish from the bank.
  • Great app to pre plan boating excursions

    By CPSJeff1
    I have been using other mapping apps (designed primarily for road use and land measuring) to manually calculate distances on water and estimate fuel consumption. I accidentally discovered this app and tried it out. I found the mapping features to be fairly intuitive and the ability to store routes, waypoints, and their respective time and fuel consumption values to be a great resource and time saver. Basically You can plan/chart a course at your convince (away from the boat's plot charter) then navigate the course and let the vessel's plot charter record the course. Or you could use the app to plan, plot, and navigate without needing a plot charter on the boat if you have adequate cellular service.
  • Boaring: Nautical/Marine Charts...

    By Loving Seagull
    Seems to me very difficult to use. Very deceiving and, from my point of view, not worth a dime... and certainly not worth the money I spent for it. I just don't recommand it and I wish I find a way to be totally reimbursed right now since it seems that their after-sale service seems about impossible to reach... Marcel Prince Very deceiving
  • Super!

  • Needs fixing!

    By Russell Mic Dec
    So after being intrigued by the simple but elegant app logo I was greeted by a prompt to download maps as there were no maps installed and after tapping yes I thought everything was fine. I spent about 1 minute trying to figure out the apps features when the app just crashed and I was sent back to the home screen. As I thought it was because the app couldn't handle me navigating through the map too quickly I tapped on the icon again and was greeted by the same prompt (would you like to download any maps) and after tapping yes I tried to figure out more about the app for the second time. But again the app cashed about 1.30 minutes after the prompt . This happened repeatedly till I lost all hoe in using the app. Definitely a thing which the developers ave to fix. By the way I am on an IPad 4.
