You should try Geowake and EarthNC Lite....both are free. I use them on my Android phone.

Some aids to navigation are labelled incorrectly.
Marina services are incomplete as are many of the other searchable services.

It will not replace a a chartplotter which has an antennae external to the cabin. It will also not replaced paper charts and "real" navigation.

Other tools that might useful:

Passage weather
Buoy weather

Internet access to NOAA, etc..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
