What is the best App for an iPhone or iPad with ActiveCaptain or other cruising community information?

Re: ActiveCaptain for iPhone

Well it depends on how much of a cheap skate you are...

I downloaded the Garmin iPad planning app WITHOUT charts. Thats free. And it takes Active Captain, and has the real time GPS tracking. So if you kninda know where you are and can deal with the basic outline of the land only then thats a good one... good for a test.

I also have Navamatics with USA east coast charts. Thats OK but not as good at iNavX. iNavX will not take Active Captain.

Thank you. Have you compared iNavX to Navionics App, neither takes Active Captain.
