MX Mariner - Marine Charts

MX Mariner - Marine Charts


MX Mariner is a basic mobile marine navigator / chart plotter featuring quilted offline raster marine charts.

Raster marine charts published by NOAA (USA), LINZ (New Zealand) and Brazil Navy are available to install from within MX Mariner as free, downloadable regions. Once downloaded, each marine chart region is available for use offline. When online, a road map or satellite image map is alternatively available.

UK chart regions are available for the United Kingdom, Ireland and Channel Islands as in-app purchases. Each UK chart region in-app purchase gives you 1 year of free chart updates. UK chart regions in MX Mariner are "derived in part from material obtained from the UK Hydrographic Office".

Please see http://mxmariner.com/charts.html for more details on offline marine chart regions available for download.

MX Mariner is useful for marine navigation featuring a simple heads up display showing speed and course. You have the ability to drop waypoints, record tracks and create routes. Routes can be activated and the heads up display will also show bearing and range to next waypoint below speed and course. All waypoints, tracks and routes can be backed up as GPX files. GPX files can be imported and exported to other programs.

MX Mariner also has configurable units of measure for bearings, position, speed and distance. Bearings in MX Mariner can be shown as true or magnetic. Magnetic bearings use the world magnetic model published National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. Speed and distances can be set to Nautical, Statute or Metric. Position can be set to degrees, degrees-minutes or degrees-minutes-seconds. Navigators can also choose to use their device internal magnetometer or gps course to orientate ship on the marine chart. Optionally, heading and course predictor lines can also be shown on the marine chart. MX Mariner also offers configurable back-light levels suitable for daylight to off-shore night conditions.

St Joseph's Bay Region 8 Downloaded NOAA Region 8 maps and St Joseph's Bay maps are not showing up. Active Captain markers show up on a plain blue field all the way to max zoom. Cannot find a way to contact MX Mariner about the issue from their app or their website. Hopefully they read this and fix it.

Lost charts mysteriously I uploaded the app on my smart phone, which has a GPS, to use it as a back up chart plotter while sailing. All was well for a while, but I then found out whilst sailing that didn't have the charts anymore (and the apps is useless without them). I took me a while to figure out how to download them again, and even more time to download them again as they cover a huge area, and therefore use a lot of storage.

Absolutely Love it! Accurate, convenient, does a great job tiling and zooming seamlessly among the NOAA charts. I used this app for a 1 wk cruise of the PNW San Juan Islands in August 2013. It was easier than the RayMarine chart plotter -- quicker to pan and zoom. My first mate was so impressed he bought the app too. Best seven bucks i ever spent. Update Aug '15 - four more weeks of bare charter sailing trips haven't dimmed my admiration for Will Kamp and his app. Only wish it were available for iPhone so friends could get it.

No reply from dev As with others I purchased a chart and then had to reset my phone and now it doesn't recognise that I have made the purchase. No reply from them to emails asking why. Best not touch it until Will does users the courtesy of replying to emails.
