Thanks for the instruction. Can I ask what the fractions represent on the tide and current symbols? I imagine they represent speed, but I'm not familiar with the way they're represented there. And the difference between a red current symbol and a blue one.

Thanks so much. That's exactly that I meant. I love this app and just want to make the most of it. Cheers.

If you mean the subscripts those are tenths of a unit. So 1 subscript 8 is 1.8 for current. 16 subscript 4 means 16.4 feet of water here: https://youtu.be/7rOE07_Rhhg?t=25 . I've seen this notation a lot in charts in meters where fractions of a meter matter but decimal points are difficult to see. Red indicates more dangerous than blue. Specifically: the red tide level bar indicates a falling tide; a blue bar means a rising tide. For current red means a strengthening current; blue means a weakening current. Thanks for asking this question; you prompted me to dig into what I now know are useful colors :)

I have heard that some boats have been written off due to lack of information regarding incorrect reef depth on some islands.

Detailed surveys are not always available. Belize is one such location: https://youtu.be/0ZPWZiE1MCQ?t=32

I deliver boats up and down via the East Coast ICW... I use this app on my Android tablet and it is FANTASTIC for REAL-TIME Navigation despite all their negative vibes in fine print against doing so. Don't believe me? Try it in parallel with your other electronic charts and tell me it's not as good or better. No I'm not a paid rep for these people. This video shows the NEW auto-routing which is worth every penny. You still need to punch in a few waypoints to guide the auto-routing so it keeps you in the ditch but it's not a big deal to do.

By the way, you can plan the ENTIRE trip ahead of time, download the map areas and work OFFLINE the ENTIRE trip. VERY special product... hooked BIG TIME.
Is there a way to set the chart to "North Up" regardless of your direction of travel?
SavvySalt (1 month ago)
Yes. You tap the toggle arrow in the lower left hand corner until it gives you the correct orientation.

What is the difference between the Navionics Chart and Sonar Chart and why do they show different depths/contour lines for the same area?
SavvySalt (1 month ago)
Sonar charts are crowdsourced charts compiled by Navionics. Navionics charts are compiled from professional marine surveys. https://www.navionics.com/usa/charts/features/sonarchart

Nice video thank you. Can you or any one else tell me please, does the app work out a course to steer taking the tides into consideration?

+SavvySaltcool thank you for answering
SavvySalt (2 months ago)
It does not. You can look up the current set and drift in some places. But it won't do the trigonometry for you.

I thought the App works like my on road gps, but the map doesn’t move with me and I Have to keep moving the map. Is there a setting to make this automatic
SavvySalt (7 months ago)
If you click on the button in the bottom left that looks like a cursor it will center on your position. Until you click something else it will keep your position centered. Though I have noticed it doesn't seem to work if you switch out of the app or turn off the screen; I'm not 100% on the rules.

I've especially bought a 8" tablet to use this app, as I already have it on my phone, but would like a bigger screen. And a message comes up that this device is not compatible with this app.!!!??? Not good enough!!
Rafi K (6 months ago)
Which tablet did you buy ? I bought galaxy tab 4 for the same purpose and it works just fine.

How do i keep the boat curser on the screen at all times. When i am using navionics app the boat goes off screen and i have to scroll to catch up with it. Thank you.
George Canakis (9 months ago)
SavvySalt ok thanks i will try it cheers.
SavvySalt (9 months ago)
the arrow (triangle?) in the bottom left corner of the screen. It doesn't always work if I don't keep the app in the foreground.

Looks interesting. Most apps I have seen only use US waters. Are maps/charts available for Japanese waters?
SavvySalt (11 months ago)
When I zoom in on Japan it says I can buy detailed charts for Japan and China sea for $21.99. You can always confirm for yourself via the free version.

Question. Can this work without cellula internet data and wifi?
Chase Mixon (4 months ago)
+Chris Hax Thanks Chris!
Chris Hax (4 months ago)
Chase Mixon GPS is free and every smart phone since 2010 has it. Most have a compass built in as well which runs off magnetic north and since GPS is in space above our heads we can rest assured it will always have a reliable connection.
Chase Mixon (6 months ago)
how can it track you without cellular or wifi?
M-STYLE HAYNES (1 year ago)
Thanks brother i'm getting it right now. You've been a great help
SavvySalt (1 year ago)
Absolutely. As long as you download the charts to your phone's local storage beforehand. When you first install the app it prompts you to select charts to download. You can download additional chart data at "Menu" > "Download Map"

How the He** do you rename a route? I look, I try, and your logic sucks!!! Why do we have took for such simple things? Please put a college educated person in charge of writing an adequate help file!!!

Bill Roberts He was nice enough to make a basic how to on Navionics, and you’re and idiot for not being able to figure out how to rename a route.
