I just sailed from Chesapeake Bay to NYC. I don't have AIS on my boat, and was concerned about boat traffic in the C&D canal, the Delware river, and Ambrose channel into the Hudson. I DO HAVE cellular service on my Ipad. We remained within 10 miles of the coastline at all times, and this app identified all the freighters, both near us, and I could also look ahead and behind us. I was then able to hail them and discuss course and direction with them. There were a few times we needed to adjust our course a tiny bit, and avoid issues well in advance. This app was a life saver for our voyage. Even when I upgrade to onboard AIS, I will still use this app to see the freighters that are outside of the VHF line of site range to predict CPA. Thanks Marine Traffic!!!!

I was excited to pay for and download this app just to find that the 16$ I paid for it doesn’t do much. For example I bought a plane tracker app from a different company and the cost for life was 4.99$ which gave me an unlimited number of favorite planes and allows me to track planes wherever they are anywhere I’m the world. Not with marine tracker. Once a ship leaves a coastal area and moves into satellite range (which I think is about 20 miles off the coast) you have to pay 1$ per ship, per day). So say you want to track 3 ships for a month - 90$. You can pay for a monthly rate but only for each action the app does and those but add up pretty fast. For example to add more than 5 ships to you favorites would cost approximately 100$ a year at their best price of 8$ a month billed annually. What about larger packages. Those will cost you in the hundreds of dollars a year. The “pro” plan costs $1,200 a year. I would strongly suggest looking into what you want out of this app before dropping the initial 16$. Very disappointed in this app. It feels like the devs are just trying to milk every dollar out of me they can.

After using the desk top version of this I decided to download the app. I almost didn’t after reading reviews stating you had to pay for info on each vessel. After downloading I ran into the same issue, HOWEVER there is a super simple fix to see the vessel names/basic stats. For some reason the app does not default to this; but if you go to settings-map options- you will see “vessel names”, you just have to toggle that on and you will be able to see them for free. A few took a few minutes to update but overall it is working just as the desktop version does.

Right now I am using this app to track a single vessel on which I will soon be taking a cruise. I used to be able to filter out all other vessels as a default. Now with your recent update, while I can still do this, it doesn’t stay that way and all vessels keep on coming back. This clutters up the map a bit, and it is annoying to constantly have to go back and reset this filter. Other than that this is a great app and I enjoy it very much. Thank you.

I have had this app for almost a year now. My husband works on offshore tug boats and got to to be able to track where he is. It doesn’t track the boat past a certain point once he’s far from land and often it doesn’t even correctly say when he has artifices at his port. I have a basic account but I did still pay for the app and it should at least be able to properly give his position. That’s the whole idea of the app! A very good example is I know for a fact he had been docked at his destination port for over 24 hours now and this app still has him underway using engine near the Bahamas. It does say they have received more information in the last 24 hours and for .99 I can get it. Are you serious?!?!? Much of the time my saved fleet just disappears as well.
