A very nice app Has everything I need for a navigation aid. I first tried the free version and was impressed enough to upgrade. Has many great features and its been fun figuring out how they work. Its also great to be able to use the huge range of New Zealand linz charts. Even has some for the southern pacific islands. Well done on a great app. Asus memo pad 7

This is a super app! I use it as back up for my boat electronics. I often find myself using it instead of my Raymarine electronics to chart my course, set markers, waypoints and check up on my dead reckoning. It is soooo fast and easy! I have it installed on multiple devices and they all work great; Nexus 7, HTC One (M7); Samsung S5. Awesome, awesome, awesome! Seems like many of the folks having issues simply do not know how upload/activate charts and properly use the app! Thank you!
