Apps for navigation

Postby Julian Porter » Wed Sep 18, 2019 10:27 am

Has anyone experience using qtvlm or Marine Navigator?
These android apps can use Admiralty charts from visitmyharbour.com
Other options are Navionics or Wartsila iSailor but the charts are more expensive and can only be used with that app.
Any recommendations?

I’ve always used Navionics on iOS.

I use VMH and Marine Navigator. It's cost effective, simple to use, has loads of information and I meet quite a lot of others who use it too.

I recently used Navionics for a week sailing in the North Ionian ( not in a Cape Cutter, sadly) as the charts for that area were available by subscription on this app. In the UK I use Memory Map which uses the Admiralty charts, but can also display OS charts so is useful for hillwalking or looking at the land from the sea. I bought it primarily to display the excellent Antares charts created by Bob Bradfield which give up-to-date detail on many of the interesting little anchorages on the west coast of Scotland. Bob has 'trawled' these bays with modern GPS positioning and depth finding equipment to give better information than is on many Admiralty charts. For example, parts of Lochboisdale were last surveyed over 100 years ago with a leadline!
