Simple Charts provides a simple easy-to-use chart plotting solution for your iPhone and iPad. Simple Charts is a full resolution seamless marine charting app compatible with both the iPhone and iPad. Simple Charts makes for the perfect marine charting companion for the cruiser, sailor, fisherman or anyone on the water. Save your fishing hotspot or any point of interest to return later to and / or share with a friend easily.
NOTE: Though Simple Charts will function without a GPS device as a chart reader, a GPS enabled device is required for point to point navigation (iPhone / iPad 3G / iPad 4G). Bluetooth GPS units are available to enabled GPS for devices that do not include a GPS receiver. For offline use where no Internet connection is available charts must be pre-cached while still on-line and connected, any charts downloaded while online will be available for offline use.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
