Sanderling, I just downloaded the SouthAmerica portion into wife's iPhone. I'm astonished how brilliant and detailed the maps shows for our homeground. It's almost the same Navionics we use on our E120 !! (at 20x cost difference ) I think our local Raymarine representative are doing a nice job updating/editing the charts, and regardless your mad price strategy, I must admit this is the best one I've found for my area. I'll spread the word .....

Have navionics mobile gone mad?

Thx Negrini, glad u like Navionics mobile. You are not the first to comment on the pricing. And it would be disingenuous of me to claim charity for economy weary boaters. A couple reasons amoung others for the price difference:
as cool as the Iphone is it is a smartphone and not an E series so it was felt we might be seen as gouging were we to solicite mobile purchases from existing customers who are btw our best advertising. Further we want new customers like every company. For us new customers may not today own a plotter or even a boat!! And these folks (iPhone users) we feel expect their apps to be free or inexpensive.

iPhone Apps

I just mentioned on other thread that I use iNavX. It is very good to use as a reference, but constant access does drain the battery.

Apps that require a brief visit, like tide apps, are really helpful.

There are free apps that proffer limited info or just data bases of info to search through, but few that provide fast access to information. AquaLights is another example of an app that gives you fast access to critical info.
