Navigation, plotting, MarineTraffic data, anchor alarms, man overboard alert, this unit does it all, love it on my iPhone and iPad, and very reasonably priced! I’m a believer!
Paid for app to use AIS Share functionality with Navionics. After installing, was disappointed to discover AIS Share required a monthly/annual subscription. This was not clear in app info pre purchase. Also, not clear why a subscription would be needed to share data already available in app with Navionics. This was a big (only) selling point. Very disappointing.
We use Boat Beacon all the time to track boat traffic on the Chesapeake Bay, even for our our boat sometimes! The visuals are easy to read and the site easy to navigate. It’s wonderful being able to easily see where other boats are on the water. Also, customer service was terrific....quick response and appropriate and easy fix the one time I ever had an issue. Highly recommended!
Been using this app for a while and it’s great for route planning and a back up chart plotter. Had an issue with the AIS transponder and the guys worked with me until the problem was resolved. Great value for the money and the addition of windy weather integration is pretty nice as well.
This is a useful app. If you don’t have AIS budget, get this.
I am a commercial fisherman in California an have 40’ state of the art fiberglass troller/crabber. I have 10s of thousands of dollars of navigation equipment onboard - I pretty much use none of it - Boat Beacon pretty much makes all that stuff obsolete for an obscenely low price. I can see where the competition is fishing complete with their track lines any where any time. Customer service is outstanding - email them and they get right back to you. Boat Beacon simply is the best!
Seems last optimized for iPhone 4 or similar
I contacted the supplier with a problem. Response was within a day. Problem was fixed!!!!
