Active Captain missing data


I use this app primarily for access to Active Captain. It seems like a good replacement for Blue Charts which is no longer available. It works very well for finding Active Captain reviews - the charts are clear and nicely detailed, it's easy to use - unfortunately, not all the Active Captain data is displayed. For anchorages, it is missing the ratings section and the sections called Dock, and Services. If it had the missing data I would give it five stars.

Developer Response


thanks for your comments.
Please notice than from May 23rd Garmin (current owner of ActiveCaptain brand) has changed the data format and content. As you can see on the ActiveCaptain site ( Anchorages do not have anymore Ratings section nor Dock and Services section.
We are sorry if you do not like this choice but the ActiveCaptain service it is not managed by us. You could probably report your concern to Garmin.

Best Regards

Better UI than iNavX but weak chart coverage


I was hoping to use this as a backup chart plotter and have heard good things. The UI is snappy and more obvious than iNavX but unfortunately there are no charts for my cruising grounds (Pacific Mexico and the Sea of Cortez). I hope Aqua Maps partners with Navionics, et al, for global chart coverage.

Needs AIS integration


I could easily adopt Aquamap as my primary nav app if it would accept the feed from my Vesper AIS. The chart display is especially good for cruising inland rivers but I need to communicate with the tows and see their activity as I can with SeaIQ. Hoping AIS is in line as an upcoming feature.
