Excellent Aqua Map Integration

As one of your first users of Aqua Map many years ago I am writing to thank you for your wonderful application and its integration with and continuing relationship with Aqua Map Charts.

Hopefully with the ease of integration more and more users will take the opportunity to provide crowd sourced information for anchorages and marinas!

I hope and implore all Aqua Map users to actively provide updates to Waterway Guide through Aqua Maps! Let us all make both the invaluable tool for updated information while cruising.

Best Boating App on the market- bar none

We are new to the boating and sailing community but our family has already taking a liking to it during covid. This app has proven to be an absolute LIFE SAVER. From the marina information to the skippers handbook we use it every time we go out now. We already got the Atlantic ICW and will be adding to our collections soon as we venture further south. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

App stopped working this morning

Sorry, but you get two stars when I pay for the $179 subscription and only have three days of using the app before it completely dies. I’ll change the rating if/when this gets fixed but until then you’re gonna get a bad review. My husband and I deleted and reinstalled the app on both of our phones, (yes, our phones are updated with the latest iOS), and all we get is “Something went wrong. Please try again.” Extremely disappointed. There’s nothing we could find online to see if was something on our end, so not quite sure what to tell the devs at this point.

Developer Response ,

Hello Hlb1980, I'm very sorry to hear about the troubles you encountered! There was a brief server communications issue the morning of November 20th that likely caused the problem you saw. If you are still seeing issues, though, we would be happy to help! Please reach out to support@waterwayguide.com and we'll get you up and running again.
Thanks, Waterway Guide Media
