Great free app for holiday use

I downloaded several free apps but this one was by far the easiest to use. I quickly worked out how to plot a course and track progress, which is all I needed for short distance cruising whilst on holiday with a small boat. The free tile also covered more area than I needed so that was a great bonus. Will definitely use again on next boating holiday.

Very handy guide for a river / estuary going cruising dinghy.

I have yet to determine compass / heading accuracy . There seems to be a discrepancy in the indicated heading created by the route planner and an Imray /Admiralty chart.

Preliminary tests aboard a motor cruiser seem to be there or there a-bouts but Motor Cruisers don’t rely on the wind for power, obviously.

With the combined use of a good old fashioned compass, good planing with traditional paper chart and the convenience of a talking route map gives me multiple points of reference.

Best part is I can plan my estimated tacks by heading and distance according to predicted wind direction whilst allowing for variance, backing and veering.

Just listen to the voice prompts then tack on to the new heading.

Multiple potential scenarios can be pre-planned and shared across my portable devices including my non cellular iPads. An onboard 4G mini wifi keeps me in touch with the GPS function.

Bottom line for me is that I feel that it is unwise to rely on one type of media. My Garmin GPS 78s Chart plotter is a piece of over priced cat crap with no compatible interface with desk top software. Not to mention the cost of maps that you need a microscope to see.

This app gives me good flexibility and pretty accurate map folio for a very reasonable price. It suits my needs for cruising up and down the river Medway and Thames estuary.

Good for a dinghy, then good for a yacht or motor cruiser.

With a valid subscription good

Feel misled by the app. If subscription expires you can not download the same chart as part of your original purchase, I’m not referring to updates which I appreciate is valid for one year only.
It should be made clear that when you make a purchase it is not like a physical chart, you don’t ‘own’ a copy of the chart you have purchased.
I would use this app in conjunction with paper charts which I keep up to date hence don’t need the latest chart version.
