Thanks, this is a very useful topic.
For others, like me, who are outside the US, it's worth nothing that a number of the apps mentioned here are US only. iNavX
seems to have only US marine charts
; AyeTides XL says it has global tides but tidal streams in US only, and I can't find tidesplan 12, dragqueen, tidegraph or boat weather
in the UK iTunes appstore.
Windfinder does seem to be global; WindGuru is another app with very similar functionality. Anecdotally it seems to be more popular in Asia
but I don't really know why.
Navfree looks like a great idea but doesn't seem to have reached Asia
yet. As far as I can tell, Australia
is the only country covered on this side of the globe.
SFHD looks great - thanks for the recommendation.
I also use WunderMap for weather
mapping. I was using Navionics
for marine charts
but haven't repurchased it since I switched from Android to iPad
- maybe I'll wait and see what ActiveCaptain is coming up with!
Any other recommendation for tide map apps that might cover south east Asia? All the ones I can see in the app store have really poor reviews
, or only cover UK/US.
