  • Dock to Dock

    Great app for charts. Dock to Dock on an iPhone 6+ does not seem to work at all. Tried Chart viewer on MacPro laptop with no luck either. Only get a “No route found” message. Chart viewer frequently changes language also. Tried to Chat and get “No chat available in English” message

    I’ve used this app professionally, and for pleasure. I’ve navigated safely up and down the east coast, and the west coast from USA to Panama and in the Caribbean. It was great, now it is less intuitive and has an annual expense. After every upgrade it is always a disappointment, sometimes loosing chars. I use to recommend it to everyone. Now I’m looking to replace.
  • A good resource with some big annoyances

    By Pablo of Issaquah
    The is my chart plotter and basically a good one. A big annoyance is that while panning with one finger the screen arbitrarily zooms. Very very frustrating. I went to the Help section of the app and on the bottom there is a searchable web option. However, as soon as the keyboard appears, the keyboard disappears. Very strange behavior.
  • Good app

    By Hunt tree
    I Dishley get this app one star however after restarting my phone the version I purchased became up-to-date with full information and depth charts. The water levels are fairly accurate just adjust the depth if you have higher low water for the year.
  • Best money can buy

    By Capt Michel
    Absolutely wonderful I have been running boats for 35 years And I have used all programs And believe it or not I always end up using this app and gets Best Infos fast simple inexpensive. Highly recommended.
  • Not OK

    By Pw henderson
    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.
  • Feature Request

    By CaptLT
    First of all, this is a great app. Very user friendly and accurate. Run it on an iPad independant of all other electronics. Love the sonic charts when in tricky passages. Requests: 1- Would really like to have an option to select Magnetic Headings mode. All other equipment operates in this mode. 2- Secondly, would like to be able to shut off the function whereby a screen touch automatically creates a route waypoint. This is very irritating when touching the screen for other reasons ( even a longer activation delay would do it ). Love this product and stake my 54’ yacht on it !!
  • Does not support Apple Watch.

    By Dhjennings
    Excellent app but does not support Apple Watch. Spend a few more dollars and get auto routing. The community editing feature is great.
  • Excellent charting software

    By Capt. Ron B
    I use your Boating US and Canada as an avid boater throughout the Great Lakes and Florida. Would like to see AIS functionality incorporated in future. I use this app as a redundant charting tool with my other Navionics based charting instruments.
  • Do NOT download

    By Widudjwnaiq
    They removed free access to automatic routing! A sleezeball move to get more subscribers and screw those of us who enjoyed functionality after buying the app.
