Distinct advantages

This is a very good navigation app. I bought it specifically because it offers Explorer Charts on a non-subscription basis but I was presently surprised at how well tides, Active Captain and waterway info is integrated. It also provides much better detail than Navionics in shallow areas. I do find the download and chart purchasing process clunky like having to buy through iTunes - really. Also it is not as smooth or fast at transiting scale as other navigation apps and seems to lag at times. The zoom function I find worthless on a phone and wish I could make that button disappear. All in all though a good app with distinct advantages.

Great features

I was looking for an alternative to BlueChart mobile since Garmin has again decided to take a good product away from us just as it became popular on the market. Blue chart mobile now lies in the huge graveyard of other discontinued Garmin products. But that is ok because this App is one of the very best on the market, at any price. It has lots of useful features with all the detail of the US coast that the most expensive electronic charts have. Can’t believe it’s free! One negative is the lack of coverage in the Bahamas. My understanding is that the only charts with detailed coverage of the Bahamas are the Explorer charts.

Pretty good Nav map

This is a pretty good marine Nav map for a gps equipped iPad. I wish it had an option on minimum font size, since it seems to always scale some type down so small I can’t read it.
That plus show AIS on the map, if you’re in internet range would be nice.
