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!

Best one. Fast. Free. Easy. Low Battery Impact

Basic plotter I use in Mid-Chesapeake Bay. And I tried a bunch of them. This is the best by far. Even works ok on an old iPhone 6 Plus. I wound up paying the $4.99 for an extra map. Some won’t have to. Otherwise you have to delete and download the next area if on a long transport. I spend lots of time where two map grids meet so I really need two areas. They give you one area of a map grid at a time free. Total bill: $4.99 for the plotter I use more than anything. Again, the one free map you get will work for most people. Best money I’ve spent boating... if there is such a thing!
