Now that we are in the Inland rivers - Illinois, Mississippi
, Cumberland, Tennessee, tombigbee. I've found the Corp of Engineer
charts to be of limited value as they only show over 9ft, or under 9 feet, nothing else, so working into anchorages
and inlets they have no data. Meaning any app using those charts is not really usable other than staying in the main channel. Navionics
seems the best choice as it has excellent depth
information for most, but not all of the river sections.
Lastly, iboat purhased 2 months ago for canada
was 120 feet off on my laptop
and my phone
vs Open CPN
and polar navy
. I reported it via email
and they NEVER replied. I was also very difficult to use due to it poor design. It was worthless, but perhaps a new Rev might fix.
In hindsight, of the 6 programs I purchased, Navionics seems the best at 25 bucks per region per year per tablet in the US.
NOAA charts, I like polar navy
for its active captains integration.
