Ratings and Reviews
Finally, reliability and portability with IOS
I purchased the radar after my previous 29 year old Furuno was laid to rest. Wanting to have dual stations for my radar was my first priority. Second, was looking for something to run on the iOS platform, allowing me to access the radar without the expense of purchasing a monitor or two, and having the ability to have the clarity that my iPhone and iPad screen offers. After several voyages, I can honestly say they I would trust the images through pea soup fog or dead of night voyages. I highly recommend the radar and app. As for previous fears of not being able to see the screen in sunlight, I clearly read the I images even with my polarized sun glasses on!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
