No tide data for Pacific coast

Cannot get any tide data for south west coast (Vancouver) area. App says “no data available, please check your connection” even when I’m online with a solid signal.
Also, app should keep you logged in or at least remember your login info so you don’t have to scramble to look it up in an emergency.
Except for those 2 things I’d give the app 4.5 stars.

Can’t even login

App needs some work. Can’t even login to my account. Just sits there and does nothing when I username and password and hit ‘login’. Hard to rate the app with that kind of start.

Be careful

Very questionable operators who are well known around the marine industry for employing the bottom of the barrel. And they will use any loophole or reason to get out of their obligations.
