The visibility of vessels in this application depends on AIS signal availability. If a particular vessel is out of our AIS coverage zone, VesselFinder displays her last reported position and updates it as soon as the vessel comes into range.

Needs fixed

For a few months the app won’t say what the boats name or anything about it is. Needs fixed to be a good app still

Fantastic App!!

I was recently in Savannah & LOVED watching the gigantic container ships/cargo ships/tankers going by River St. & I kept asking everyone I’d meet there asking them how do you know when they’re going to pass by & a worker at the visitor center finally told me about this app & I downloaded it right away & haven’t missed a vessel yet!! It is the answer! It is perfect. You can zoom out to Tybee & beyond to see specifically what is coming & going. You won’t be disappointed. And it’s free. Thank you so much, VesselFinder Lite!

Happy with update

The new update is great. Important info is easier to access. Also seems to use less memory. I was beginning to look at other apps, but not anymore. Thank you.
