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.
If you’re on the fence, jump off and DL this app. It’s better than the description implies. If you have a question about it, email the developer. I did, and got a response within an hour. The app is easily the best $$ you’ll spend today. You will only have to spend it once, no subscription for updates like similar apps. I got this as a backup for my onboard plotter and paper charts.
So I have a paper chart on my phone, I believe that these are open source charts, so anyone can download them and share them. My problem with the app, isn’t about the money, it’s the fact that you cannot navigate using this app, the interface between the charts and true gps data is very inaccurate, sometimes off by over a half a mile. That makes it dangerous at best. And you can’t really navigate from a digital chart either, because you can’t lay a compass over your phone, so ,,, hmmm, it really needs work. The overland mapping by Gaia is spot on, even in the mountains, to within +- 10 yards, maybe even better.
No longer a need to carry the fold ups in the boat. For the price of 2 maps, I’ve got the whole coast. Good use of technology. Really appreciate the ability to download the chart for use outside of cell phone range. Good for weekenders like me who can’t flip the $10k for a name brand monitor assembly. Plus - no ads getting in the way of the data. :-) Developer is responsive to inquiries.
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.

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.
