Sailing Apps

Any suggestions on navigational apps for an ipad?

Pros cons vs a GPS

Re: Sailing Apps

isailor gets good reviews... I have installed it, but not figured it out yet.

Navionics also decent (but no night mode with red backlight like isailor has). Navionics have a bit of a rep for refusing to update older versions and making you pay for a newer version... not very friendly...

These are the two that I have.

I don't have a stand alone gps (save for the display on my vhf) so can't comment.

The ipad is mounted in a lifeproof nuud case and attached to pedestal via a ram mount. Works fine (bimini provides shade to make screen readable even in direct sun).
