Download it here. The app is searchable in the Google Play Store under Sailboat Owners.
Sorry iPhone/iPad users, we are still waiting on Apple. :(Click the X in the upper right corner to make this go away
This is overcome by acquiring a stand alone gps reciever. I prefer these due to more precise readings and I can connect all my redundant devices (phones and additional IPads) to it. There is a lot on them in flying forumsOnly iPads with wi-fi + cellular have a GPS, necessary for navigation apps, built-in. The wi-fi only does not have built-in GPS. A good friend made this mistake.
+1. Sandfly - it sounds like you are using the app, but for things like searching I think you’ll find just using your phone’s browser and going to forums.sailboatowners.com works well. The website is very responsive to screen sizes and fits nicely.is the search box not showing for you? It’s at the top of the app page right next to the Sailboat owners logo.
I do too. The chartplotter is my primary navigation tool but I’ve found myself looking at Navionics on my phone more and more. It’s a small screen but having quick access to auto-routing, Active Captain, and more responsive panning and zooming makes it very handy.Anybody else finding the phone in their pocket is becoming more useful?
It's actually a good suggestion as doing the search on a phone does not work as well. I can attest to that. Doing the search on a computer works much better in my experience.Suggestion someone uses a search feature is fine, telling someone to "get on a computer" is a little rude, but I guess that's subjective.
OK, I'llSandfly said:Suggestion someone uses a search feature is fine, telling someone to "get on a computer" is a little rude, but I guess that's subjective.
Then use a computer, please.
The real issue is Reading Comprehension 101.Otherwise, I guess you missed the word "please" in my reply
I'm not so sure about the "safe to sail around Maine" LOL - but for sure don't buy electronics that attach to your boat. That world is exploding at warp speed! It's getting really interesting!This subject is moving at the speed of light.
AI (artificial intelligence) will soon beam out of the cloud to our boats. You'll be connected to world and your boat will drive itself, around buoys and rocks.
It will finally be safe to sail the coast of Maine.
Don't invest much today in nav gear, especially stuff that 'mounts' to the boat, it will be obsolete tomorrow.
