Very cool app but VERY expensive add ons - and crashes a lot

I don’t doubt this is the best ship tracker out there, but after you pay for the app suddenly you find you get sucked into paying more and more, and it is not cheap. At first it was .99 cents to add satellite tracking - okay that’s fine - paid for that. Then for density traffic, I didn’t know what that was but paid a bit more for that. Then I realized you are limited to 5 saved ships - to add more the minimum is add 50 for about 100$ a year billed every year or it is included in basic plan which is about 200$ a year which didn’t add stuff I wasn’t very interested in. Middle plan was about 600$ a year and pro plan 1,200$ a year.
If I could add 10 ships to the fleet for 20$ one time I’d do it. But the recurring payments are a bit much unless this a very important hobby for you. The high cost turned me off from adding anything else just out of principle- I’ll just have to make due with 5 ships-
Also on my iPad mini the app crashed all the time. I mean ALL the time- it is frustrating.
Great app otherwise.

Developer Response ,

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about our mobile app. I want to clarify that absolutely no functionality or access has been removed from the app. As before, you have access to all positions received by coastal stations included within the app. As has always been the case, accessing positions received by Satellite is an additional service. Before the most recent update, app users could make an in-app purchase to access satellite positions for all vessels, on a recurring subscription basis. For the latest release, we have created the Access 24 Plus service, so that Mobile App users can now choose precisely the vessel they want to get satellite information for, rather than buying an add-on for the global fleet. We strive to improve our app with each release, to enrich the experience for everyone and to give you access to the information you need in the easiest way possible.
Further to that, please be advised that for Basic users, A Fleet of 5 vessels is free. Should you wish to extend your Fleet, you can subscribe to our Fleet service of 50 or 500 vessels. We also want to hear from our users when they feel like we have done something wrong, so I appreciate your feedback, and we will build on it going forward. I hope that I have clarified the issue for you, but if you have any questions feel free to contact us here:

I just sailed from Chesapeake Bay to NYC. I don't have AIS on my boat, and was concerned about boat traffic in the C&D canal, the Delware river, and Ambrose channel into the Hudson. I DO HAVE cellular service on my Ipad. We remained within 10 miles of the coastline at all times, and this app identified all the freighters, both near us, and I could also look ahead and behind us. I was then able to hail them and discuss course and direction with them. There were a few times we needed to adjust our course a tiny bit, and avoid issues well in advance.

This app was a life saver for our voyage. Even when I upgrade to onboard AIS, I will still use this app to see the freighters that are outside of the VHF line of site range to predict CPA.

Thanks Marine Traffic!!!!

Information is only accurate half the time

I have had this app for almost a year now. My husband works on offshore tug boats and got to to be able to track where he is. It doesn’t track the boat past a certain point once he’s far from land and often it doesn’t even correctly say when he has artifices at his port. I have a basic account but I did still pay for the app and it should at least be able to properly give his position. That’s the whole idea of the app! A very good example is I know for a fact he had been docked at his destination port for over 24 hours now and this app still has him underway using engine near the Bahamas. It does say they have received more information in the last 24 hours and for .99 I can get it. Are you serious?!?!? Much of the time my saved fleet just disappears as well.

Hello Kim, thank you for rating our app. We would like to clarify that, on one hand, all positions received through our network of coastal stations are available to all MarineTraffic users., while, on the other hand, the positions received through satellite are available through our satellite services. Based on what you have mentioned, we assume you are referring to the service Access 24 Plus, which unlocks SAT positions for one vessel of your choice for 24 hours. In your case, we would suggest SAT Flexible, which allows you to see positions received via satellite for specific vessels (01, 03, 05 or 10 vessels) for a month or a year, depending on the billing period you choose for you subscription. We would love to help you find the most suitable option for your needs, and we would also really appreciate to learn more about the issue you have mentioned regarding not seeing your Fleet and assist you further. Please don't hesitate to contact us through our Live Chat or Email at
