Very nice app with one thing missing

Vesper AIS support would be wonderful.

Very good Chart Plotter

Have used Sea Pilot for a year now, ever since Garmin stopped supporting their iPhone plotter. Tried most of the other apps, and paid for several only to find that they were not adequate. Sea Pilot is very good. Charts are accurate and seamless. Very easy to plot a course and edit as needed easily. Thanks for a great product that was desperately needed.

the fact that Lake Okeechobee is missing from the Florida map, is a bit disturbing

Forgot my Password

I forgot my password. There is no way, in the application, to request a reset. A new account can not be created because my eMail address is already in use. Maybe this review will get developer response.

This app looks pretty decent until you find out that it cost $40 to access the AIS Internet data. They are other apps, maybe not as sophisticated, but are free.

Great App

This APP is really cool...received as a promotional gift at the Miami Boat Show. Downloaded the APP to my I phone and used it right away over on the gulf great and you can set it up to show what you want to see or not. I feel this is a great way to backup your chart plotter just in case...
