Hi,
I have found vthe following helpfull.
Tideapp
Marine Weather
Sundroid
Saildroid
Windfinder
Magic Seaweed
Tide Prediction
AIS Marine Traffic
GPS Essentials
Google Sky

ALL available FREE in the MARKET PLACE,

CAUTION ...MY GPS on the phone does NOT work beyond 10-12 miles out at sea.
PLEASE DO NOT rely totally on the phone as your only marine aid.

I have two independant GPS systems that function beyond the 10-12 mile range they are Garmin H72 handheld andf I have an ASUS 10.5" notebook with 10hrs battery that has bluetooth GPS electronic charts.

I also carry full paper charts for ALL the areas I sail and always will.

Safety first :-)

Kindest Regards

Will

Passsage Plan, Plan It. Plot It. Check It. Add Some Bolt Holes ...Now Check It Again.
