Clay, I recommend you use the search button here on Sailnet.
BVI chart/nav app

I realize tech changes, but not that fast

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

This 'List' is too dynamic..people come and go. And with recent Xmas..Ipads are probably more abundant with individuals looking for or have already just recently have some experience with the latest (Nav) apps....

Re: Nav app for an Ipad

I just got my iPad recently so I haven't actually used it on the boat yet. I have downloaded a few navigation apps though- iNavX, Navionics, and EarthNC Marine Charts. I like EarthNC the best: EarthNC.

I use iNavx and Navionics extensively. iNavX is by far the best, IMO, with amazing customer support. iRegatta is also quite good and while oriented to racing, is useful to the cruiser ( specifically the layline feature)

Charts & Tides. It's a basic nav app, but great for backup. Also has Active Captain cruising database offline, which is an incredible resource. Better than their website, in my opinion, as you see an actual chart location and approach for each point of interest.

Re: Nav app for an Ipad

I use Motion X GPS...the app developer set records on the Transpac race TWICE using it. If it gets them to Hawaii in record time using it exclusively for the navigation, thats good enough for me to get to Catalina and back.
