Main Features Include: + NOAA Raster Nautical Charts (RNC) + NOAA Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) + NOAA Weather Map Overlays + Trawl & Non-trawl RCA fishing overlays (West Coast) -- RASTER NAUTICAL CHARTS -- NOAA RNC charts are full-color, geo-referenced, digital images of NOAA paper nautical charts. All maps are available for download. Weekly updates to the RNCs are done on a 'best efforts' basis. The timing of their availability is not guaranteed. Since complete ENC coverage is available in all U.S. waters, vessels required to use ECDIS may NOT navigate with NOAA RNCs. RNCs are approved for use by IMO ECDIS mandated vessels only if adequate ENC data is not available. NOAA RNCs DO NOT meet USCG chart carriage requirements for commercial vessels. The NOAA RNC are intended for navigational use. NOAA RNC are not intended to meet federal chart carriage regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. NOAA makes no representations that the RNC Tile Service or the RNC Tiles provided thereunder meet federal chart carriage regulations. Users should consult the Code of Federal Regulations for current federal chart carriage requirements. -- ELECTRONIC NAVIGATION CHARTS -- Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) are vector data sets that support all types of marine navigation. ENC Charts Include: + Buoys, Beacons, Lights, Fog Signals, Radar + Natural and Man-Made Features + Services and Small Craft Facilities + Seabed, Obstructions, Pipelines + Depths, Currents + Port Features + Traffic Routes + Special areas NOAA updates the ENCs for Notice to Mariners on a weekly basis (timing of their availability is not guaranteed). Although NOAA ENCs are intended for navigational use, the data displayed in this app does NOT meet federal chart carriage regulations for regulated vessels. -- NOAA WEATHER DATA -- + Weather Radar + Sea Surface Temperature + Significant Wave Height + Wind Speed & Direction + Air Temperature + 12-Hour Rain Probability If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com. Enjoy!
This app is terrible. You loos all charts when you zoom in to see detailed channels and depths. Wast of money
Not worth the 8.99. Seller ask for you to text him if you have trouble downloading. I guess he knew and did not fix. The maps are layers of Garb. Really!
As I pan around, it’s taking my iPad Pro a really long time to render a particular screen. This slow tile-by-tile rendering of the image repeats every time I zoom or move around on the map. It’s so painful as to render the app unbearable. I tried downloading all of the maps, too (which, as an aside, was a very frustrating exercise ... you should be able to just tap on maps in the list to start the downloads and let them progress concurrently ... the three modals per download meant that I had to sit down in front of the iPad for ~20 minutes to download all of the maps) and that didn’t solve it. This app has plenty of data available, but it’s unwieldy. - - - In the developer response, he says “after downloading the maps, the tiles load instantly.” But downloading multiple maps is a clumsy affair. This should be streamlined, getting rid of all of those modal dialog/alert boxes. So thank you for taking the time to respond, but I’d suggest you revisit this downloading process. It’s really quite cumbersome (esp if you want to download multiple maps).
The map should zoom in to current location , it doesn’t. The overlay disappears if zoomed in too far. You have to manually adjust map when underway or the position indicator goes off the screen. Map DOES NOT reorient to course changes, which makes this app unusable while underway. Very disappointed
So far so great. So much to learn and info to learn. Is there a tutorial video?
The price said 8.99 but I was charged 14.99. After I complained the charge disappeared completely. Will see if it comes later. Developer wrote to say GE does not set price-Apple does.
App crashes, doesn’t open
Downloaded the app and southern Bahamas is not available and crashes on iPhone on opening!
Tons of content and ability to download for use offline. Overlay of weather conditions. Thanks.
I dig this app. It has yet to crash on me. I use it to periodically check my position while sailing and to research where to go next. It would be nice if it had a speed and course indicator, but I still give it 5 stars.
