Re: Which iPad Navigation App is the Best?

I used to use MaxSea Timezero for the iPad. Then an iOS update broke it, and it took half a year for MaxSea to bring out a fix. A plotter from one of the major vendors, where the OS and the software comes from the same source, only running software from that source will be more reliable. I doubt General purpose computing devices will ever be as reliable as a dedicated plotter.

it perfectly charged from 12v, just need little bit more power 1A+, You can change car charger or install something more waterproof like blue sea charger or any other sealed charger.

add to the list of program - SEAiq Open - good alternative to OpenCPN on iPad, may be on of the most advanced program.

Is that SEAiq running in the photo?

I have Navionics and have been happy with it for coastal cruising.

Re: Which iPad Navigation App is the Best?

I am going to try out SEAiq USA.

I have read for hours yesterday and today and will give it a go. (things change so fast these days by the time I download the chart for my area the whole shebang could be out of date!!)

I don't get out much these days but when I do I will try it out. Also, I am strictly local to Central West Coast Florida right now.

We shall see.

Who knows what is next.
