* What is Sea Drive?
Sea Drive is a marine and boating application focused on charting, navigation, route building, track recording, tides, currents, and more! Our goal is to provide the best user experience for boaters on and off the water.
Sea Drive provides FREE US charts! We believe that everyone should have the tools on the water to feel safe and know how to find their way home (or pull up to a restaurant).
* Who is it for?
Sea Drive is for all of you who love the water! If you spend time on sailboats, fishing boats, bowriders, wakeboard boats, kayaks, or canoes this app will quickly become your go to co-captain
* What are the features?
Sea Drive is meant to be used on the water and in the real world, that means cell service won't always be available. Charting, tides, currents, routing, tracks, GPS, compass, and more are all available without internet!
** Free Chart Data (US)
Currently only US charts are available (and will always remain free thanks to NOAA and your tax dollars). As Sea Drive improves we will be adding other chart regions for free or as low cost as possible.
** Tides and Currents
Tap a tides or currents icons on the chart to view offline predictions (for years into the future) at over 3000 locations.
** Build and Navigate Routes
Build routes with easy to add waypoints, drag waypoints, delete waypoints, and give waypoints custom names. Export and share your routes with other boaters. Activate a route to see bearing (magnetic or true) to waypoints, estimated time to waypoints, and ETA at destination among other metrics.
** Record Tracks
Review and playback previously recorded tracks.
** Create and Share Markers
Add notes and measure distances to markers.
** Basic Features
Location (GPS & Compass). Caliper tool. Display settings for custom chart options. Vessel details for hazard avoidance and route planning. Satellite and road map chart overlays.
* We love feedback!
Sea Drive is built by boaters for boaters. This is just the start of our journey and we would like you all to be a part of it with us! Please provide any and all feedback!

Ratings and Reviews
After review, the developer contacted me and invited me to try out the test pilot updates and give feedback. So far I am very pleased with the updated versions. No more crashes (phone is now iPhone 12 Pro). Works very well. Updates are solid and developer quite interested in feedback.
I got a free chart after installing the app. on my iPhone SE2.
Every time I try to download the chart the app crashes without the download. Getting rid of app. There’s lots of charting apps out there.
Developer Response ,
Hi - We are sorry to hear about your experience with Chart Downloads. We have a new release on the way that addresses this feedback and provides even more tools. As a new company we value your input as we work to make the app better. We hope you try Sea Drive out again.
Narrowly missed an iceberg in the North Atlantic thanks to this app! So clean and a great resource for all sea navigators
