Re: iPhone Sailing

guys... you responded to a technology thread which is 2 years old. Heck, it's already obsolete

Re: iPhone Sailing

Hi These are some of the apps that I think are very useful while on a sailing boat (both for apple and android products)...
For navigation and chart purposes I like:
  • chart and tides
  • navionics

Also, when planning your trip, these apps might be useful:
  • tide app
  • NOAA Buoy and Tide data
  • magnetic declination
  • weather underground
  • predict wind

Other apps that I put on my smartphone are:
  • anchor alarm
  • marine traffic
  • ship finder
  • signal flags info

If you want to keep a “how to sail” and “how to race” manual on your device check out:
  • boater’s pocket reference
  • RYA Handy Racing Rules

I love to improve my knowedge of stars and planet. For this purpose, I love:
  • Star walk

Re: iPhone Sailing

TropicCat, thank you for advising me about the age of this post. Even though it may be two years old I was not aware of this age because I am new here. However I did find it to be very interesting to me to Share newer technology as it becomes available. 15 years ago I was carrying around a huge tower and monitor. Now I carry a laptop. My job demands that I carry my navigation equipment from boat to boat as jobs arise. The smallest technology becomes very inviting as long as you don't give up any reliability. As anyone knows a good Marriner never relies on just one form of navigation anyway. Thank you. captg
