Great app with great customer support

I have been using Aqua Map for about two months and am very impressed with the many features in the app. Previously I had been using Transas Isailor, Sea IQ, and Open CPN. All three of these programs are good, but I am finding Aqua Map to be much more user friendly and feature rich. As important as the features of the program are, the EXCELLENT customer support provided by The Aqua Map team is essential. I had a problem connecting my external GPS and AIS data to the app. My NMEA settings for these features worked on my other navigation programs, but no matter what I tried I could not get it to work with Aqua Map. After two email exchanges with Pietro from Aqua Map the problem was resolved. Pietro’s responses were accurate and timely, and I came away with the feeling that these guys really care about their product and reputation. Thanks again for your help, and please continue to make your application the best navigation software in the marketplace.

The best of the best

I love Aqua Maps. I can’t say that enough. I have been accused of getting a kick back from Aqua Maps because I tell everyone how good it is. I have personally turned over 20 people on to it. I started out in Lake Michigan over a year ago and wanted to use ActiveCaptain for our up coming trip. We had been using it for years and I have a lot of reviews on it of our old cruising grounds but then all the issues came up with Garmin. Three days before we left to head down Lake Michigan I found Aqua Maps. This is one great chart plotter. We use it for all our route planning and as a second chart plotter in the cockpit. The charts are spot on and have not let us down in over 4 thousand miles of ICW to Bahamas cruising. Works great and at a very reasonable cost. We still let everyone know about it. Would not be without it.

Love It

I guess I’m a bit strange but I’ve always loved maps! This app rocks! It lets me take trips before I actually do it for real! So awesome!
Now we finally got our boat and I’ve been using this each time we have gone out. It’s invaluable to have when sometimes the water level is so low and if you are not paying attention to the map, you can run a ground. Many times it’s not about staying the middle of the ICW, you have to pay close attention to where you are at!
I love this app and how I’ve been able to plan all our trips making sure we are safe and enjoying the waterways!
I”m also very impressed that anytime I’ve asked a question, I’ve gotten a real answer, not a bot sending me links.
Great job!
