Customer Reviews

Excellent for planning

Although the iPhone app may not be accurate/safe enough for real-time navigation, the disclaimer makes that clear, and the details and technology of the app are excellent for information and planning. The technology and route planning is more sophisticated than many chart plotters, for a fraction of the price. I am a big fan!!!

4 Stars

I use this app in the Pacific Northwest, including the Columbia & Willamette rivers and so far I'm very impressed. I don't really have much to compare it to, but the charts are very detailed and (so far) extremely accurate.

The plotter page is wonderfully intuitive with easy tap-to-place waypoints and very professional speed, BRG, dist next windows. You can input your boat's specs to anticipate leg-length and fuel consumption.

It even has a massive search database for locating fuel and any written info on sections of your voyage.

I'm astonished, frankly, to be the first person to write a review here and if I'd seen others, I might have actually rated it a 5.
