Main Features Include: + NOAA Raster Nautical Charts (RNC) + NOAA Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) + NOAA Weather Map Overlays + Trawl & Non-trawl RCA fishing overlays (West Coast) -- RASTER NAUTICAL CHARTS -- NOAA RNC charts are full-color, geo-referenced, digital images of NOAA paper nautical charts. All maps are available for download. Weekly updates to the RNCs are done on a 'best efforts' basis. The timing of their availability is not guaranteed. Since complete ENC coverage is available in all U.S. waters, vessels required to use ECDIS may NOT navigate with NOAA RNCs. RNCs are approved for use by IMO ECDIS mandated vessels only if adequate ENC data is not available. NOAA RNCs DO NOT meet USCG chart carriage requirements for commercial vessels. The NOAA RNC are intended for navigational use. NOAA RNC are not intended to meet federal chart carriage regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. NOAA makes no representations that the RNC Tile Service or the RNC Tiles provided thereunder meet federal chart carriage regulations. Users should consult the Code of Federal Regulations for current federal chart carriage requirements. -- ELECTRONIC NAVIGATION CHARTS -- Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) are vector data sets that support all types of marine navigation. ENC Charts Include: + Buoys, Beacons, Lights, Fog Signals, Radar + Natural and Man-Made Features + Services and Small Craft Facilities + Seabed, Obstructions, Pipelines + Depths, Currents + Port Features + Traffic Routes + Special areas NOAA updates the ENCs for Notice to Mariners on a weekly basis (timing of their availability is not guaranteed). Although NOAA ENCs are intended for navigational use, the data displayed in this app does NOT meet federal chart carriage regulations for regulated vessels. -- NOAA WEATHER DATA -- + Weather Radar + Sea Surface Temperature + Significant Wave Height + Wind Speed & Direction + Air Temperature + 12-Hour Rain Probability If you have any questions, please email me at Enjoy!

    So far so great. So much to learn and info to learn. Is there a tutorial video?
  • Overcharged

    By Seminarian
    The price said 8.99 but I was charged 14.99. After I complained the charge disappeared completely. Will see if it comes later. Developer wrote to say GE does not set price-Apple does.
  • Doesn’t open

    App crashes, doesn’t open
  • Unsatisfied

    By Dckboater
    Downloaded the app and southern Bahamas is not available and crashes on iPhone on opening!
  • Excellent content and value for boaters.

    By Mdjsull
    Tons of content and ability to download for use offline. Overlay of weather conditions. Thanks.
  • Well done

    By discern
    I dig this app. It has yet to crash on me. I use it to periodically check my position while sailing and to research where to go next. It would be nice if it had a speed and course indicator, but I still give it 5 stars.
  • Great maps. Needs to be able to mark location and track routes.

    By Azionhzmilton
    Love the maps and the offline mode. But lacks ability to drop a pin or record my route.
  • Terrible for boats under 10ft draft, great for big boats

    By ewizard0990
    The maps are wonderful where they work the problem is that there isn’t really any coverage under about 10ft of depth so if you are in a river with sand bars or even a local lake that’s 200ft deep but has some 5ft areas, there’s zero coverage at all. Requested a refund after finding out that some places that are well covered by other apps are 100% missing from this one.
  • Missing Maps

    By Warrior5Delta
    I thought with the high ratings the would be an excellent app. After paying the 8.99 I am not happy one bit. It’s missing one major map that I need. Tennessee. We have tons of lakes here and none are covered
  • Doesn’t cover lakes and inland areas

    By captainj3systems
    Was hopeful this would cover lakes and inland areas but it doesn’t. Additionally the user interface could use some work. Not super User friendly.
