Potentially great

I have started using this app on my iPad to replace my HDS8 unit (I am just using the sonar screen now). If the developers can introduce an auto track (record) start and a latching heads up default I think we have a winner! At the moment you must manually reset the heads up each time you do anything on the screen and the record must be manually activated to see your track.

Thanks guys, please keep evolving this app, it is the future.

Great App

I love this App. Very handy and easy to use. Maps have good level of detail and weather, wind and tide info also handy. Loving the auto-route feature. By far the best App for Navigation, regularly updated maps and a bargain compared to buying charts on a memory card.

Very happy with Developers responses to my questions thus far.

Would it be possible to add a switch in the Map Options to bring up the Console to show speed, heading, distance and time information even when not following an active track.

Loast all my charts because it made me download the new app

Happily navigating my way around the canary islands ( very secluded area of the world )
Am told by the old app to download the new one . As it says, all your data and charts will be transferred to the new app.
So i do this, next minute i open the new app and there is not one of my charts ( $200 worth as iam in the middle of a yacht circumnavigation around the world) not to mention leaving me stranded without navigation aid?? I have these charts on 3 different devices as back ups. All 3 decided they didnt want to show me the purchased charts anymore. Yes i could have spend more money and downloaded the chart i needed at the time.
But what the hell?
