Best Apps for Navigation

Hi all,

I'm looking at getting some navigation apps for my tablet so that I can plan routes. Any recommendations on which are good and kept up to date with charts, yet easy to use?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Best Apps for Navigation

I use Nobeltec's TimeZero Navigator on my Surface Pro with a GPS dongle. I've loaded CMAP charts into it. We have Garmin software on our chartplotters. I have a handheld chartplotter with CMAP charts loaded into it. Our cell phone has Navionics (which is useful when in our dinghy; we've only used the charts and not exercised any navigation on it). Sometimes, we refer to Aqua Map on the phone (but just for seeing the charts).

Use the google search option and you will find decent past threads. Here is one from earlier this year...
