Navtex should be a requirement to any mariner, hobbyist or professional, regardless the type and size of vessel as it offers important Navigation Warnings that are safety-related while at sea.
Nearly 200 NAVTEX Radio Stations across the world form a global coverage network transmitting messages either in 490kHz, 518kHz, 4209.5kHz, 424kHz and 486kHz.

At sea, safety is everything so our Navtex App will fetch the latest NAVTEX messages issued by the several official entities and present them to you whenever you want.
You don't need to connect your iPhone/iPad to any HF Radio. Only an internet connection is required. Synchronize and within seconds you have the worldwide updated Navtex information in your pocket.
You may select any of the available NAVTEX stations in the App and check their transmission schedule, frequencies, local data and latest important transmitted messages.

In Brazil, Australia and New Zeeland Navigation Warnings are not broadcasted via NAVTEX. However, this App will still fetch the latest Navigation Warnings from those regions and show them to you.

Additionally, you can also subscribe to APRS weather that is broadcasted by ham radio enthusiasts all over the world. It is a good backup system to gather weather information in case of failure of the vessels's primary systems.

This app relies on public domain information available on the internet from the NAVAREAs official co-ordinators. With such, the presented Navigational Warnings will not relieve Masters and Captains of the requirement to receive Navigational Warnings via IMO/IHO approved broadcast systems.
Most common Navtex Receivers available on-board will not operate on 4209.5kHz, 424kHz and 486kHz. In those cases the Navtex App will be even more valuable. Our safety at sea is priceless!

I can’t get this thing to work at all

Downloaded the App, paid for the Navtex subscription and that’s about as far as I can get this thing to work.

The “Help” button leads to a blank page, there is no setup instructions and it keeps directing me to select a Navtex station, which I do and still get nothing!

Not very user-friendly.

This app is a scam

This app does not deliver what it claims. It simply directs you to information available elsewhere using third party available data and charges you for something you can get via the web. A scam that ought be stopped. I would like my money back please..

RIP off app avoid

This is a pure ripoff app. It doesn’t access Navtex warnings at all, and only shows warnings from publicly available websites by opening those websites in safari.
Avoid at all costs, this is a scam, dishonest and should be removed from the App Store.
