IPad, Bluecharts, Active Captain login fix

FYI in case anyone else is having this problem....

If you try to login to Active Captain from Garmin Blue Charts with the latest version of iOS it will fail.

If you switch to portrait mode and try, it will work (!?!).

I did not believe it when I first read the work arounx, but it does actually work.

Thanks again. Caught us by surprise. Karen seigel told me in an email to hold it in the portrait style but I thought they would just appear. I didnt know I had to hold it that way to log in. Whew, I just downloaded all the new AC information. It took about 10 minutes so make sure you are on a good wifi and not data. Thanks again.

Strange, I have the latest version of iOS (9.0.2) on an iPad Air and have no problems logging into AC on GBC whether in portrait or landscape modes.
