Great free app for holiday use

Bertie 51

I downloaded several free apps but this one was by far the easiest to use. I quickly worked out how to plot a course and track progress, which is all I needed for short distance cruising whilst on holiday with a small boat. The free tile also covered more area than I needed so that was a great bonus. Will definitely use again on next boating holiday.

I liked it.

kinematographer

I’m new to these devices so bear that in mind, however...I found it very accurate on an iPad air1 and the free grid covered a lot I needed. Compared to the I Ray charts it seems very similar which is a very good thing. It took me a little while to post courses but it’s all logical. We compared results to a farming onboard, perfect.

It compensated for the charter boat system

KS Bento 1st

The app has enabled us to navigate around Croatian coast, Hvar etc.
I'm still unable to plot a course with way points, giving up each time and just running the live map instead.
It would help if I could be emailed a set of simple instructions to print out and study alongside the system which I use on my iPhone.

You can reach us at support@gpsnauticalcharts.com.

1. Tap on menu/overflow button (on lower right for iPhone, ) and select "New Route"
2. This would show show route editing controls at the top. The route editing control is initially in pan mode.
3. Tapping on the center button(it looks like ad directed route) would switch it to route creation mode.
4. Tap on "New Point" to drop a route point that you would follow in succession. (Some people like to call it asway point). If you want to create a point that is not exactly on route but anavigation aid, use "DropMarker/Pin" (second button from left).

5. When you are done creating the route, tap on "Save Button" to save route
