Great for Navigating the Hudson
Looking for a navigation app to help me on my first trip on the Hudson River. I have a runabout without any electronics so thought I’d try finding an app that would be fun to try and hopefully be of some help. I used it for the first time on the water and it worked flawlessly in helping me keep in the main channel. Seemed to be very accurate in marking the hazards and all of the channel markers that I saw along the way. Worked great for me and made my trip much more enjoyable and I believe, safer.
Great For Checking
While I generally use dedicated chart plotters as the primary means of navigation, I do use this application to double check my primary systems. I also frequently use the application for planning trips using it’s access to active captain. I have a large memory capacity on my Iphone6s, and have 8 gig of charting data stored on the phone. The application seems to manage this large data base without any issues.
OK not great
Use the app for Explorer charts. While the price for these charts is good, the detail leaves a lot to be desired since the charts are Raster scans instead of Vector. This means you are restricted to meter depths and no additional detail when zooming in. The Explorer data is good for suggested routes and locations of services cruisers are interested in such as anchorage data, grocery stores, dinghy docks, etc. The app interface is also not intuitive leading me to go through the tutorial often to find how to perform simple navigation tasks.
Buy the app for the chart data, not the interface.
