Get Your iPad on Board
Get the same feature-rich and highly accurate BlueChart navigation available for your chartplotter right on your iPad. View shaded depth contours and inter-tidal zones with spot soundings from home. Plan your trips around marina points of interest and slipways.

Overlay with Weather Data
Acquire weather through cellular-based Apple devices and see weather conditions, temperatures, dew points, wind direction/speeds, radar and cloud cover overlaid on the chart.

Easy-to-use
BlueChart Mobile gives you the same object-oriented data and seamless chart presentation you’ve come to expect from your networked chartplotter. Interact with the map on your iPad or iPhone by using the radial menu to mark waypoints, establish a destination for your route or learn more about the features on the map. Search through BlueChart services and ActiveCaptain™ marinas for a marine service point and find the phone number, hours of operation, and amenities and services available. With the touch of a finger, view tide station and current prediction information.

When on board, wirelessly connect your Apple device to your networked chartplotter and transfer your routes, waypoints and tracks between your iPad or iPhone and chartplotter. Once underway, “follow the boat” along its route on your iPad by wirelessly sharing the GPS location from the marine network. This is the most accurate way for passengers to see the boat’s progress and position from anywhere on the boat when the Apple device’s assisted-GPS is unavailable.

ActiveCaptain Real-time Content
Use BlueChart Mobile with ActiveCaptain, a web community that provides real-time content generated by mariners. Read and write reviews about marinas, shared local boating knowledge, anchorages and hazards. More than 200,000 boaters write reviews and update the information on ActiveCaptain, with more users joining all the time.

¹Weather data can stream wirelessly to GPSMAP® 8xxx/7400/7600/8x0/10x0/7x1/5x7 series. All other BlueChart Mobile features are also compatible with GPSMAP 4/5/6/7xxx series through the optional Garmin Wi-Fi® Adapter Kit.

²Weather features vary by region. The GPSMAP 8000 series requires the Wi-Fi Adapter Kit

Great App But Could Use More Features

For a $50 in app purchase and up to 1 GB of memory this app will give you detailed marine and navigational mapping for everything between the top of Alaska and the bottom of the Carribean - a great value. You only have to download the portions you need and other maps are available. The only down side is that the menu is highly restricitive compared to Garmin Marine nav system hardware. The vessel size is too large and not configurable, it doesn't project the vessel direction so you can see where the boat is headed one or two hours out, it doesn't provide any data while underway other than speed and heading (e.g. no distance or time remaining to your destination or intermediate way points). Therefore, it is more like a really good and compact chart book with the benefit of seeing where your vessel is on the map than a true navigatgional tool like a full feature Garmin hardware device.

What happened? Death by update!

Used this app for 3 years and loved it on my iPad. Sailed from Florida to Maine and back using it (and a Garmin plotter with a RayMarine backup) and saved a hundred anchorages on this unit as the prime route planner. Fatal flaw of not being able to download the hundreds of points now that something has frozen the app on startup. Epic failure if this is truly now dead on my iPad. Program starts, then fails but leaves a partially open, but frozen, screen at my last known location. This app is now dead on my IPad.

Do no waste your money. What was a great app has become a total failure with latest revision. All routes and information lost as the app will not open.

With this update, Garmin has reached into your pocket and made the money you paid for the app disappear.
