Unlike many other apps, Aqua Map is designed to use at the best the battery power. Its Battery Consumption Monitoring will stop the track recording when the battery is too low, in order to ensure the phone is still usable at the end of your navigation.


Like any GPS, the signal quality can vary very much depending by the amount of visible sky, weather condition, etc. GPS is not reliable indoor.

The continuous GPS usage, also in background, can drastically reduce the battery life.

Better than free version?

Unclear to me how the Pro version offers anything better than the free version. Additionally, it appears Garmin has blocked the use of Active Captain with this product.

Developer Response ,


the main difference is in the limited number (1) of areas you can download and in the number (3) of Markers, Tracks and Routes you can store in the Free App, whereas you do not have any limit in this Paid App.
Currently ActiveCaptain is fully working on the App (Garmin has not blocked the use of it). If you are having any trouble in using ActiveCaptain data please let us know ( and we will solve it.

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.

Great Cruising Ap

Got it mainly for Active Captain and found it to be much more! I use it for planning and as a backup for my Garmin chart plotter.
