Disclaimer : I'm working for the small team behind the GeoGarage website
I have roboforms password manager installed, I assure that is not false positive. Site instantly tried accessing/copying the default location roboforms password file. Is/was malicious code. Could be in a module or 3rd party code that is used, could have been from server being enslaved by hackers, could have been not so innocent... No way to tell.

There is no way to tell if this malicious code was removed after staff saw my thread... Google would give clean bill of health.

I like the features of the site but I will never ever ever ever visit again.

If I owned that site I would shut it down immediately until the malicious code is quarantined, removed and I implemented whatever security necessary to prevent in future. While this might not be intentional, it is a very serious threat to site visitors.

Unsuspecting web visitors assume sites that they are visiting are secure and not running malicious code to steal their personal information.

I repeat - this is not a false positive!! I am positive that your site was phishing for roboforms default password folder. If my security wasn't better than the hack... Someone would have all of my banking, credit card, identity information just because I visited the site.

Thank you for addressing my Serious concerns with this site. If you have not found the malicious code you should look harder.

Hopefully noones identity has been compromised from using this site.

I still caution, I cannot recommend.

Areas for tides are marked by a T in a diamond. The easiest way to find them is to use the search and look under category.

Wind is displayed by going into the menu and turning the forecasts on

Navionics charts are available for iNavX. This includes Canada for very reasonable price..

Or as others have noted the more expensive official CHS raster charts...

As you can imagine, we take very seriously the privacy of our website users and the security of their personal information. We took part of the weekend to do a professional grade web security audit and not any web vulnerabilities was found.

Concerning third party, do you use the Garmin Communicator Plugin ?
For example, If you visit this web site :
Garmin | Communicator Plugin Test Page
are you notify also about a malicious website ?

Thanks,

This is way off topic so last response about this. No, it's not a mistake. No websites ever try to copy my password folder ever. This is not a misunderstanding on my part. I have cautioned CF members, you are aware of the issue. I am done.

I am glad that you are looking into it and the site appears to you to be secure. This raises a huge red flag because if it were compromised by someone not on your team whoever was running the hack would still be running it... You would easily find it. It seems as though they knew right when to shut it off... That's the innocent version.

Best wishes. Please don't pursue me in this forum anymore. Please please make sure that the website is not attempting to collect users roboforms password and personal identity as it did to me.

This issue is closed for me! I will not recommend. Whether accidental or intentional, all of my banking, credit card and personal information was nearly compromised... Just for viewing your site. This was the most aggressive and straightforward assault on my system ever. I make my living (PASSIVELY) 100% online... This didn't happen without understanding basic things like when a site is maliciously trying to steal my identity.

Re: IPAD2 Navigation Apps - What Rocks?

A hardware question if I may ask, what is the best way to go with a GPS for the ipad?
Do the 3G units just get a fix off phone towers?
So is it best to get a plug in GPS receiver like the Bad elf?

The tides and currents are built in, as is the ability to overlay google earth type satellite pictures. Navionics is really worth the money, and I own almost ALL the charting programs. IMHO, Chris

BTW, I hear Navionics now shares info with your onboard chart plotter in some cases...

Re: IPAD2 Navigation Apps - What Rocks?

The iPad 3G does not require a cell or WiFi connection or subscription to get a GPS fix. However, if these services are available it certainly will take advantage of them. The other option is to use external GPS. Several are iPad compatible.

Re: IPAD2 Navigation Apps - What Rocks?

I downloaded the navionics app and all the charts I need for cruising in the PNW. Its fantastic and I'm happy with it. I have the iPad2 wifi only (no 3G) and so assume that once out of wifi range I will not have gps (or triangulation from cell towers). I thought I read a post by Active Captain that the wifi only version DOES have gps. Does anyone know for sure? Cheers,
Bill

Re: IPAD2 Navigation Apps - What Rocks?

So will a 3G unit be able to get a fix out in the middle of the ocean where there are no phone towers or can it read satellite signals?
Looking at the Apple site makes me think not.

Re: IPAD2 Navigation Apps - What Rocks?

Only iPad 3G and iPhone 4 have an independent GPS receiver. What information on the Apple site makes you think that a cell or WiFi connection is needed in order for the iPad 3G or iPhone 4 GPS receiver to work?

it's probably the term "assisted gps".

The "assisted gps" allows the phone/pad to apprximate your position when you are out of sight of the sats. it also helpe the initial fix as well.

Re: IPAD2 Navigation Apps - What Rocks?

"Assisted GPS" means it will get the initial fix faster if it can triangulate using cell towers.

The iPad2 with 3G will work in the middle of the ocean, just will not get the initial fix as fast.

I purchased the 32gb model, because a few members here were navigating with the iPad1 with 16gb loaded with charts and said they would up the memory to 32gb next time.

With those recomendations, iPad2 for offshore navigation will cost $729
