What's the best tides app for the eastern seaboard of Australia? I am using Android.

The tide feature imbedded within the Navionics app is pretty good and includes all published primary and secondary locations.

Thanks so much. I will look into it. I have Navionics with Australian charts but have not used it much. See the tide information there now. Will need to do some experimentation to see what carries over offline. Any tips?

Re: Best tides app for Australia?

While I do use Navionics tides if I have it open at the time,my goto app is DGS Tides. It's far better!

Re: Best tides app for Australia?

For tides on the QLD coast, I prefer the Bureau of Meteorology table as republished by the QLD govt in pdf:

http://www.msq.qld.gov.au/~/media/ms...tidetables.pdf

Or, for particular ports, see: Queensland Tide Tables (Maritime Safety Queensland)

Re: Best tides app for Australia?

I've used Navionics for tides all over the world. It's great because I don't have to open another app for tide OR wind information. It's all right there overlaid on your chart.
To access tides and/or wind just click on menu at the bottom, click Weather and tides when the menu pops up.



then you'll see a box with 4 quadrants pop up. (YOu can set the location of that by clicking "edit" in the upper right corner... you can add multiple locations for easy access.)




Then click on the bottom left quadrant where tide information is and you'll see tide information graph on the bottom of the screen. You can scroll through it and get detailed info by clicking Details in the bottom left.



If you want to do a wind overlay just click on the top right quadrant where you see the wind vector.

I have been using the tide predictions system which comes with OpenCPN on the Queensland coast for a couple of years now. I find it particularly handy for anchoring.
