What's New in Version 22.0
Optimizations and bug fixes.
I bought this app to use as a plotter for fishing around the bay and coastal areas. Wow is it great. I downloaded the NOAA maps for my intended fishing area (so that I can use them when I am outside cell or wifi coverage areas.) and it works fine. The maps do take up a lot of space on your ipad so you need some storage. The settings for downloading the maps are a bit ambiguous but in a nutshell, the farther apart the sliders are on the download page, the more you can zoom out/in. You should see what i mean when you try to download the NOAA maps. You do need to use a cellular capable ipad to be able to use GPS as the wifi only models do not have the GPS chip in them. Also, the ipad screen is not very bright in sunlight and you need to look pretty closely to see some of the smaller objects but for such an inexpensive app it does a great job as an economy or back-up plotter.
Great but flawed! So close to the best!
I used to use this for long distance when I had very few waypoints, but ended up having to go with a different app. I've had this app for well over a year and have been waiting on what would be the most crucial update...WAYPOINT customization and a few other additions.
The blips, almost cartoon like, clutter the screen especially when your in an area with a bunch of way points together. It would be great to change the size to either a small dot or just something smaller. Additionally an option to not let your waypoints bunch together when zoomed out. Much like a kmz or kml file works with Google earth add a way to tap to turn on/off waypoints in the navigational panel on the left would be quite a feature as well, especially on the fly.
I would even pay more money to add these features. And of course, the most amazing feature for tactical guys would be the screen snap shot and save as file, with option to transfer, email, etc. Route creation and storage along with the easy to turn on off on the navigational pane.
So close to being an amazing app but dropped the ball. Really still hoping they make these additions as an expansion pack... I would drop 15 bux on this easilly. Devs if your reading this, your so close man...
Excellent App – So many customizable options!
I love this app! You get so many map options: Google, Bing and Apple in Road, Terrain, Satellite and Hybrid versions. It even has the NOAA Marine map as an option.
You can also easily measure the distance from any point to another point (while also getting the latitude & longitude for each point, plus the direction/heading in degrees).
You can setup as many waypoints as you want, and then organize them into as many folders (which you name yourself) as you want. I have 100+ waypoints organized this way.
AND it lets you record the tracks/routes of trips (by car or plane) you made, recording along the way many custom variables, including, for example, your speed (average & maximum), altitude, total ascent & descent, distance travelled & time. It also display the track you took on the map. Like the waypoints, you can setup as many tracks as you want, and then organize them into as many folders (which you name yourself) as you want.
Overall, an excellent app. I give it five stars.
