Still Needs Post Google Map Loss Update
This app was awesome for shallow water navigation in the FL Keys. However, after Apple dumped Google Earth satellite maps, the areas in the North side of the Keys and reef areas became "grayed" out making the satellite maps nearly useless. The app needs a setting to allow the use of Google Maps vs the worthless Apple one. It also needs the ability to see waypoint labels in MAP (satellite) view. It also needs the ability to pick up a route and continue at any point in the route. Currently you have to select the route and "step" to the desired starting point to pick up a route mid way through.
Have used this program on my iPad2 with a Bad Elf plug in GPS antenna. ( no need for wifi ) As a back up to my chart plotter. Sailed the FL. Keys, last year gunk-holing. Charts where as accurate as as Raymarine chart plotter. Nice to look at two chart showing boat position when traveling in tight & shallow places. There are a lot of NOAA charts to choose from. I find it a very good program, with lots of options. My biggest complaint is, moving from chart area to the next consecutive chart in route. It doesn't jump to the next chart. I would recommend this app.
Great for the serious navigator
Great App for the serious navigator who wants up to date NOAA charts at their disposal. The weather apps available for in App use are fantastic.
