  • Disappointing

    This app was my main source for wind forecast and worked for years. However, recently weather (wind and tide) stopped working even though I have two subscriptions up to date. Have contacted support but it takes forever to get responses while live chat is never available. I ended up having to delete my app and download again in attempt to refresh those features but none came back and I lost my marks and tracks. I still have hope to get it back as I use it on my Garmins plotters in my boat.

    I’m a pro boat captain. I originally paid the one time fee for this app. It’s not ok to renig on our deal and wipe my charts. For those paying annually, you could find yourself at sea and your charts suddenly wiped from your device at expiration. Happened to me. This is a safety issue and is unethical. I’ve since discovered there are other great chart apps.
  • Great for cruisers in the Caribbean and no wifi needed!

    We used this app for navigation throughout the Caribbean and LOVED IT. We downloaded the app and the charts while we had wifi and then never needed wifi or cell signal again for this app to work. Even in the most remote places the app followed us just like a full fledged chartplotter would. We also love the tracking feature. Easily track yoursel so you can follow your track back out of tight spots!
  • It used to be 5 stars

    It worked superbly before. Now it boots you out after clicking OK on the agreement to terms. It needs an update to fix bugs so it can be 5 stars again.

    Gives you the speed you are boating. Allow you to track your trip and save it and use it again if taking same trip. I use the same track to get to a island and never had problems. Obviously if you lose connection because too far from land will not give you the speed or else.
  • Autorouting NOT WORKING

    You have to pay 1.99 to upgrade first to the NAV MODULE and then 3.99 for autorouting. Then you find out that AUTOROUTING DOES NOT WORK
  • Saved my bacon in BVI

    I rented a powerboat while in Virgin Islands, but it did not come with GPS or depth sounder. I used this app on my iPad exclusively when I navigated. The GPS always kept up with my location, and was very accurate. The other plus is that it works on GPS only and does not consume data unlike other applications. For peace of mind this app works excellent. Honestly, the best $10 I ever spent. also, I'm not sure about the prior review about Tortola being blacked out. I didn't have any issues with that.
  • Perfect for BVI charter

    I returned yesterday from a week long charter in the British Virgin Islands with Sunsail. I do not understand some of the negative reviews - I used this app and the iPad (recommended) app every day and they worked perfectly. Seriously, these apps are perfect for a charter. If you have a bareboat charter coming up, buy the iPad app. If you want a backup device, buy the iPhone app. Don't wait. Trust me. You won't be disappointed
