Dont waste your money

Downloaded the free version and there were boats to watch even though i know theres many ships in my port…. bought the upgrade figuring i would be able to see more of the ships and more info and the only ships we can see are over seas…no American vessels available waste of money

Works great for me

As a sailboat owner in Southern California it’s nice to know where the bigger ships will be ahead of time. This works well. Unlike others I have no trouble zooming down to a detailed-enough level.

maps used are highly inacurate

using port everglades as prime example. maps do not reflect actual harbor layout of either everglades or dania port areas. large tankers shown inland by 300 meters when they are actually in water at that same location. docking 1 thru about 16 are totally not shown and the line that is shown is highly inacurate for up the icw to other small and major harbors as well. same for miami.
