The power of a color chartplotter for a fraction of the cost.

Excellent Chart Plotter with Free Raster Charts from NOAA
I've used this app while cruising on a 36 ft sailboat all along East Coast for 6 years. It is not my primary Chart plotter but an excellent back up and even better for planning routes and exploring options for anchorages. All NOAA raster charts are free. To put this in perspective my primary Chart Plotter from Garmin costs $900 and requires $250 per Chip just for the Chesapeake Bay region. $50 for is a bargain. Don't pay attention to reviews from people looking for free or 99 cent apps who don't understand the power of a full chart plotter.
I'm very pleased with this app. While I wouldn't make it my primary device for location, I've found it quite accurate. Fun to pull it out of your picks on a friend's boat and use the instrument function. And on shore, nice to have all the charts on hand when pondering where to head tomorrow.
Just be aware it only allows and draws sailing through orthodromics, even on a meridian and you will not be able to change to loxodromics
In my opinion, not useful for Pros activities
