Looks like Navionics charts are back up on the Android Market. However, they seem to have consolidated their coverage areas. No more "British Columbia", for example, just "US & Canada" now. I'm assuming there would be nothing in the former that is not now included in the latter...

Thanks Adam

That may take up a lot of memory.

Hello
For Android, you have MarineSecurity with MarineSecurityMap in complement.

The first have 2 features:
1- Anchor alarm when you are on board
2- Watching against the theft when you are not on board. It sends you SMS message on an other phone with location when the boat moves.

The second, MarineSecurityMap, converts the SMS messages received, in points and traces on a google map view.

Vous can have more info here Marinesecurity : News or here Android Market

Sincerely
Cyril

Re: Sailing Apps for Android

I use EarthNC, the paid version ($9, I think). It functions really well as a chartplotter on my Droid Bionic. The paid version allows you to download large chart areas before you go out. Then you can use it in an "offline" mode - in other words if you've lost all data connectivity it still functions as a live chart plotter since you've previously downloaded all the charts you want. I also really like that you can set this app to night-vision mode and the chart goes to a red screen.
