The Marine Rescue App is a must have for all NSW boaters.

The free app allows you to Log On directly to Marine Rescue NSW, the State’s official volunteer marine rescue service, to register details of your next boating trip.

The app is simple and intuitive to use and once logged on will prompt you to enter details specific to your journey that are submitted to Marine Rescue NSW:

- Image of your vessel
- Number of people on board
- Number of hours on the water
- Your planned journey location

Once you’re back on shore, it’s just a matter of Logging Off to record your trip as complete and incident free. If you don’t Logged Off as expected, the App will alert us that you’re late and possibly in trouble, enabling us to swiftly deploy a search mission.

The App also comes with a safety tracking service for added peace of mind. The optional feature, which you can elect to turn on, records your location every 30 minutes, so in the event you’re in an emergency we can complete a targeted search mission.

MarineRescue is a great addition to your maritime safety toolkit.

Persistent Bugs

I’ve used the app a handful of times and find it frustrating. The last time I logged on I elected Pittwater as the destination from my history. Marine Rescue immediately contacted me to say the lat and long was actually Bermagui. I explained that it’s the app that’s at fault as the app supplies the lat/long when the user types in or selects from the map the destination. Another problem is that the option to choose from map is at the end of my (destination) history and as this is now a long list sits under the keyboard of the iPhone and can’t be accessed. The transit box is ghosted but for the new user or unaware appears as if it’s already ticked. Hats off to Marine Rescue for always phoning to clarify with us when information is unclear but the app really needs rectifying for both MR and users’ sake.

Battery Sapper

I used the previous version and thought it was great.
Went out today and it prompted me to update so I did. After having to go through all the registration details again, trying to log a trip was not as easy as previously. Also after a couple of hours on the water my phone went into low power mode, it had killed my battery with the usual tracking mode.
Bring back the old version.

Much easier than radio

Works extremely well despite some comments here. Have been using since it came out. Has worked perfectly except for two times. I know that if has a fail safe feature to let you know if there is any chance you have not logged on successfully.
