Has some annoying bugs

App requests feedback too often, the pop-up interrupts me when I’m trying to use the app. When creating a route the auto zoom out is very annoying, if I zoom into an area I want it to stay there while I create the route. When tracking a route and trying to zoom in or out you have to hit the recenter button a couple of times to track your vessel movement, it should stay tracking your vessel movement while you are able to zoom in and out. While tracking a route the option to look ahead rather than keep the vessel icon center in the screen (like most chart plotters) should be available, I don’t need to know what the map looks like behind me, I’d rather see further ahead.

Professional Guidance Needs Professional Tools

As a professional running a guide service in the Inland Northwest, the importance of accurate and reliable navigation tools cannot be overstated. C-Map has proven to be an effective and valuable part of my daily operations, however, its functionality could be expanded to better serve professionals in the field. The app’s current reliance on the built-in GPS of tablets and phones can be limiting, especially for professionals like myself who depend on the superior accuracy and reliability of external GPS units. The addition of support for external GPS devices would greatly enhance its usefulness. Equally important to me, as a professional, is the ability to use NMEA data from my boat’s internal network. Incorporating the ability to utilize this data would allow for greater interoperability with existing systems, as the coordinates from the external GPS are broadcast in NMEA format. Despite these areas for improvement, C-Map continues to be a reliable app that I frequently use and recommend. I hope that in the future, developers will consider these enhancements, thereby making the app an even more indispensable tool for professionals in the maritime industry. In its current state, I would rate C-Map at 3.5 out of 5 stars, but with these improvements, I am confident it would easily earn a perfect score. Until then, I will continue to utilize and support C-Map, eagerly awaiting these crucial upgrades.

Beautiful. Fast. Intuitive. Free!

I spent considerable time this past week trying out C-MAP and other marine navigation apps like iNavX, Navionics, Wavve, etc., in an effort to find the best one to run on my iPad while sailing. C-MAP was the hands-down winner so I felt compelled to write a review and let people know how great this app is.

First of all C-MAP stands in stark contrast to competing marine navigation maps because it’s uncluttered and the maps are super snappy and run butter-smooth on my iPad Air. You get intuitive options for distance/time estimating, mapping out routes, basic weather/wave/tide data, your GPS coordinates, even points of interest in the area... and it’s completely FREE! If you choose to upgrade (for just $19/year) you can even see more detailed weather forecasts and AIS traffic on-screen.

As a tech CMO and recreational sailor I have to tell you, this app has every single thing I was looking for and nothing that I wasn’t - some serious thought went into C-MAP, from its design and feature set to its user experience. The only other marine app I use (and don’t really need) now is PredictWind, just to get really granular on wind speed and direction. I happily deleted all of the other marine apps on the iPad. If you’re searching for a boating/sailing navigation app like I was, give this one a try. There’s really no need to look elsewhere.
