The free version includes all our navigation and trip planning tools. High resolution vector charts are available by In App Purchase (IAP) with free chart updates for a 12 month period.

Vector charts provide many advantages over traditional raster charts. Buoys, Lights, Bridges, Depth Contours, Depth Soundings, Rocks, Anchorage areas, NOAA Weather Buoys etc. are all selectable and have real time distance, bearing and detail information. Turn off layers to de-clutter the display and only show what is important at the time. Tides, moon and sun times and weather are also all available at your fingertips.

In-app tools let you measure distances and bearings and record waypoints on routes to sail. When you are out at sea, the app’s Sailing HUD shows your position on the route, Course over ground (COG), Speed over ground (SOG), Vector Made Good (VMG), Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA), Distance and bearing to next Waypoint. Waypoint reached alerts, auto-routing to the next waypoint and flashing collision alerts (with AIS).

Unique AR view mode (IAP) allows you to view buoys, lights, ships, waypoints, route and track overlaid on your iPhone or iPad live camera view. With "AR LockOn" you can select a target on the chart and then be guided to it in the AR camera view. You can also see at night and in the fog with the FLIRONE Infra-red camera.

It works

Withdrew a bad review ... It is slow to scroll on an iPad but if you are sailing well you don't go that fast .... So it is a good app

Now ‘embiggened’ for iPhone X!

With the app now making full use of of the larger screen of the X iPhones, with the added weather detail, it’s even better! With AIS plotted as well, this app has much to offer with charts fairly priced too. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s going to be added next.

Developer Response ,

Hi Mark, Thanks for the great feedback. We have listened and the new version of SeaNav now supports full screen on the iPhone X. Its a free update. The latest version also adds an amazing animated weather view showing wind, waves, rain and pressure out to 10 days time.

Revised rating

Initial set up problems had me struggling with this app and I’d just about given up until contacted by the developer who got me up and running. Great customer service and I’m going to enjoy using this new found wealth of information in the bays and inlets of the Western Isles. Thank you Steve Bennett, much appreciated.
