NavLink is compatible with all Digital Yacht's wireless NMEA devices such as the iAIS, WLN10, WLN10HS, NavLink, iNavHub and PilotLink that stream wireless AIS data to your Apple device.

potentially excellent, but worryingly slow on updates - eg the stonking great new breakwater at the entrance to Cowes is still not shown - Navionics got there months ago

Greatly improved performance

I tried several marine navigation apps and this is my favourite in terms of ease of use and good looking, easy to read charts but it suffered from slow chart drawing and panning. Looks like the developers have listened and the charts are now drawing really fast with this new version and the detail is better than Navionics. Thanks.

This is a great app. AIS display is excellent. Great for crossing the shipping lanes. Display of cpa allows you to interpret if you will pass ahead or astern. I have it linked to a Vesper AIS engine & I think it's a better visual guide than other AIS displays. Great that it supports GPS data from AIS nmea data, only software that does this and I think more accurate than IPad internal GPS.
