AIS Unavailable

3
Not sure why I can’t get AIS data on other vessels around me. They don’t even appear on the chart for me at all. Disappointing to say the least.

Purchased charts are incomplete

1
Purchased a chart for eastern seaboard which is suppose to include CT waters but it doesn’t include fishers island sound and little Narragansett bay which is a HUGE omission. Don’t waste your money.

Great app!

I’ve been using this for years while sailing in the Chesapeake Bay and off the coast of Spain. Some of the features require some practice to master but it’s generally very intuitive and has lots of great features. I highly recommend it.

My Go-To Backup

5
This program has been great. The user interface is simple, but does everything I need it to do. Having a separate data set on charting information is invaluable. Since I have Navionics charts on my main chart plotter, having that chart data repeated on my backup device is a waste, these charts are a different data set, and looking carefully at where they are different is a valuable input. The subscription model for charts is perfectly reasonable. I mean, come on guys, if you want updated charts you have to PAY for them! If you are happy with old, out of date charts (why would you be???), just cancel the subscription and keep using the old ones.

Subscription Service Fail

1
Bought a lot of charts before you switched your terms of service so you can make More profit. Sad when you don’t care about the customer that’s been loyal for years. I’ll find a different chart program THAT VALUES US.

Your updates are hard to understand

3
I really liked ISailor. Gave it 4-5 * without hesitation. When we cruised from Chesapeake Bay to Lake Champlain, I couldn’t have been happier. Now I can’t figure out how to buy charts to go from the Bay to FL. & Operation is confusing to me. Help!!
By Lottsburg

Bait and switch

1
Really annoyed by the move to a subscription maps model after I had purchased maps at full price before the policy change with the expectation that I would not be nickel-and-dimed for maps I had already paid for. Those prior map purchases should have been grandfathered. Such is life. I’m switching to QTVLM anyway, so sayonara.

Excellent marine charting software and support

5
I am professional mariner and use iSailor every day at work. It is easy to use, intuitive, and a powerful piloting tool
By Monarch Navigator

Got my money once but not more

1
Very disappointed that I can not update charts that I already paid for. This was a very bad business decision on your part. Bye.

Great app, love the subscription model

5
I have been using this app for 2 years now. Great app ! Some folks have commented on that subscription as a problem, but i love it! other sailing apps charge over 80$ for their charts. With iSailor you can get those same charts for 2$ a year. Let me see.... 80$ in app purchase, vs 2$ a year in app purchase. I love the 2$$. Thank you iSailor !!
