I want to begin by saying that this is my first review on an app. People are winning about this app not living up to their standards, but what you are asking for costs the price of all the other apps about nautical charts on the market > 7.99..... the fact that this is free already deserves 5 stars. Is it slower than paid apps? yes. does it download maps flawlessly? No. BUT IT'S FREE
Better than my 50 dollar subscription
Great charts and multiple settings for easier access.
The Free Nautical Charts is a very good thing to use so that you can see depths in the water in real time!! The app allows you to plot routes for your boat. When you get this app it is important to know the draft that your boat has, especially if she's a sailboat!! You definitely don't want to run aground and hurt the keel!!! Overall, this is an awesome app that is worth downloading!!!
Easy to use
I think this is the best ever !!!!!!!
Does what i need it to do !!!
Best app I met so far for land, sea and air topographies!
Overall it's a good app. It would be better if you could store multiple routes.
I like this app but it really needs to show if the soundings are in feet or fathoms at a glance preferably at the top right of the screen. It is also a must to be able to download maps for offline use. Looking forward to these improvements thanks.
Great maps integrated with phone's GPS. Fantastic, but... No legend for map symbols, and instructions to use features is sorely missing. If they would provide instructions (or a guide), I would have given this app a strong 5-stars.
Super simple and easy to use. For a free app without ads it works great. Even has route planning. I wish you could save each route but for a nice clean free app it's great.
The app is great for what it's designed for. I haven't been able to get the location sharing to work, not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if outs a glitch in the app. Not enough of an issue to even take off one star though
Great go to
Great for navigation
Good to have onboard when needed
Nice features and graphics for navigation.
Does what i need it to
Nice chart app. Good distance tool.
Very helpful app for navigating. Like the way point feature
Excellent preplanning navigation. Great backup to my onboard chartplotter. O
Simple but works well if you have cell reception.
Well thought out. Extremely useful.
This shows winds on the great lakes. Nice to know if one is planning a trip to the lakes.
Awesome! Having chart with map overlay is incredible. Great app.
Awesome app when planning on plotting a course very easy to figure out round trip and if you know your vessels specs you can figure out fuel consumption love it hope it does not change
Nice app for the price. Aborts on my Nook occasionally, but I can live with it.
This app is indispensable for me to plan my trips on the Chesapeake Bay in my boat. I can know the depths for the areas I'm going to, shipping lanes to avoid, check distances to points of interest, and much more. A definite enhancement for the safety of my small craft.
Whenever I leave my home (and internet access) and reopen the program on my boat, it won't work. Can't figure out how to get it to work independent of internet - out at sea.
Must have when navigating unfamiliar water at speed, depth is in feet when compared to depth finder. Know if you are in the channel when traveling and out of the channel whe. You want to anchor big thumbs up.
Looks like a good App but not useful for me as there's no maps for Georgian Bay.
It will not work it searches for my location but doesn't seem able to use GPS and won't work at all.
Doesn't find my GPS for some reason but shows everything I need and is free!
I was running through all these types of apps trying to find a decent one and this one came up, looked good, and I can't find anywhere where you have to pay for anything.

Could you please add a legend. Would held some D A's like me
