Best app for Map of harbors/anchorages

We're going to be sailing on Lake superior for two and a half months this summer and sailing in the areas that we haven't been in before. Can anyone recommend the best app that might show a map of anchorages and harbors and the services available at each place?

Thanks

For Android- MxMariner with Active Captain extensions.

I have Garmin BlueChart mobile on my iPad, I use it with Active Captain overlay. It is a excellent source for reviews from cruisers and local boaters on anchorages and marinas.Click image for larger version

Re: Best app for Map of harbors/anchorages

Last time I looked at active captain it had very little to say about the north shore of Superior. I'd say you're far better off getting a current copy of Bonnie Dahl's guide: Superior Way.

It would probably be worth joining the Great Lakes Cruising Club. They have a huge database of harbor reports and anchorages.

And maybe Jeppeson's Plan2Nav as well. MX Mariner is raster charts, P2N is C-Map vector charts, and we find both format useful in their own way. Both have AC extensions, but C-Map charts also include their own marina data too.

I think there's an iVersion of P2N as well.
