Main Features Include: + NOAA Raster Navigational Charts (RNC) + NOAA Weather Map Overlays + Trawl & Non-trawl RCA fishing overlays (West Coast) -- RNC CHARTS -- NOAA RNC charts are full-color, geo-referenced, digital images of NOAA paper nautical charts. All maps are available for download. Weekly updates to the RNCs are done on a 'best efforts' basis. The timing of their availability is not guaranteed. Since complete ENC coverage is available in all U.S. waters, vessels required to use ECDIS may NOT navigate with NOAA RNCs. RNCs are approved for use by IMO ECDIS mandated vessels only if adequate ENC data is not available. NOAA RNCs DO NOT meet USCG chart carriage requirements for commercial vessels. The NOAA RNC are intended for navigational use. NOAA RNC are not intended to meet federal chart carriage regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. NOAA makes no representations that the RNC Tile Service or the RNC Tiles provided thereunder meet federal chart carriage regulations. Users should consult the Code of Federal Regulations for current federal chart carriage requirements. -- NOAA WEATHER DATA -- + NEXRAD HD Radar + Sea Surface Temperature + Significant Wave Height + Wind Speed & Direction + Air Temperature + 12-Hour Rain Probability If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected]



  • Pretty good for what it is

    By BubbaPhattt
    Was jet skiing in some costal waterways while on vacation and wanted a way to see the navigation charts with gps over lay for periodic location and depth checks. Did well. The one feature that would be nice is to have a find location button to make finding your location when opening the app easier. Otherwise get the intended job done well for a reasonable price.
  • Great App, great support

    By 🌚Kitty
    Nice that you can download charts to use as backup to GPS plotter. I navigate the inside pass between WA and AK, so I have a the security of offline viewing of NOAA charts that I am familiar and comfortable with. Excellent support, developer emails promptly when I had questions. Nice to know someone gives a hoot for customer experience and service, thanks Will.
  • Just maps

    By rick239853
    No location info or ability to save a location. Should have researched it better before buying. Waste of 9 bucks
  • Buy this app. Totally worth it

    By Glide2277
    This app is great and hopefully marks the beginning of the end of the 25 year chokehold Garmin and Navionics have held over the boating world. Every American has contributed to the costs of NOAA putting together map databases. And for years the big companies fought to keep the raw data out of the hands of the public. So now it is finally available but predictively difficult to manage downloading and using the RASTER maps. This program does the hard work for you so now you can use all of the NOAA maps for free, forever, for only the cost of this program. It still lacks the ease and functionality of the big players but the app will get better and better as more boaters use it. Really fun for loookingbst digital charts of far away waters without paying extra for more charts. Have fun.
  • Couldn’t download any other charts

    By Nuvue
    I couldn’t get it to work on my two year old I pad. Does okay in my location, but other charts wouldn’t download.
  • Not impress

    By shellybabs
    Not very user friendly.
  • Charts are updated and good. Needs measurement tool

    By mmmmmiiinnnttr
    Need a measurement tool for measuring distance between waypoints. Also need the ability to store waypoints. Charts are great but pretty useless if you cannot log waypoints and measure distance between them
  • Well Designed App

    By Rich Collins
    The app does a great job of stitching together the charts as you pan and zoom. Offline mode is essential when you’re offshore. Nice additional features like wind and waves.
  • Rockfish Conservation Area overlay

    By Kevin McCeney
    This is a great app. It has the best charts out there. The developer recently added an overlay with the west coast non trawl rockfish conservation area. He tells me there’s more to come.
