Re: Which Smartphone for Sailing

Windows Phone is sadly a little light on sailing apps. It doesn't have a Navionics port for instance or iNavX, or anything quite similar.

On the other hand it does have the "Nautical Charts" app, which is a phone version of the website. It requires data access but is extremely useful for planning and checking tides. That website and the phone app have my favorite view of tides and currents by far.

I like my inexpensive Nokia 521 quite a bit, and by being inexpensive insurance was also dirt cheap ($20 for 2 years, which includes replacement if I get the device wet). That is pretty handy for sailing.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
