    I have 35 routes around Savannah, Georgia which I use on a motor boat at 25 knots. Easy to follow. I just completed a 900 nm passage from Tampa, FL to Savannah, offshore in the Gulf and Atlantic. All the planning and onboard navigation was done on an iPad with iSailor (with considerable prudent backup that was unneeded). This included three unanticipated ports of call which required rerouting while at sea. Excellent accuracy, even in tight quarters. (However, pay attention to expected GOS accuracy). The skipper said “the nav job was fantastic.” There is a reasonable learning curve to iSailor because this is a sophisticated, prosumer-level product. There are numerous app-purchase chart packs and instrumentation add-ones. If you just want to go around the lake, the app is overkill.
  • Problem with new IOS WiFi

    By Kyaw P
    Hi, I’m using this app with iPad air2. But after I updated IOS to 11.1, the AIS sensor in the app could not connect to PILOT TECH V3 WiFi AIS. So, please I want the solution for this problem. I just bought the iPad Air 2 only for this app.
  • Fantastic

    I've used iSailor for several years and have never had ANY issues. I've never had it crash. It's very stable. I export my routes to my wife when she stays home. She knows exactly where I've been during the day. It's easy to use. I recently purchased the "Weather" part of the app and love it. Tells me everything I need to know; tides, wind, pressure, wave height, etc. Don't look any further, this is the app you need for boating and sailing.
  • Horrible customer service

    By mccudy
    I got a new phone and only one purchased chart showed back up through my iTunes, I purchased 3 for my area and one one showed back up no help or anything getting it back. And all my ais wasn't uploaded back up either. Horrible customer service.
  • Best price Best app!!

    By Jeremy_ak
    I bought this app when it was .99 cents! I'm still using it today! I work at a Lodge and we use it for our skiffs that don't have any electronics and it's fabulous! I've used about 10 different map apps and this is the best! Love iSailor!!
  • Excellent App

    By Eladsgarr
    Use it all the time at work.
  • Fantastic!

    By Pulsar747n
    I am amazed at this powerful well designed application. It does everything I expected and more! I will give it 6 stars if I could!
  • Works great

    By J.Eaton
    I use iSailor to navigate my Alberg 35 from Baltimore on the Chesapeake. I've been using it for a couple of years and find that it's easy to create routes. I like that I can go back and forth between my iPhone 5 and iPad mini. The in app purchases (tides, AIS, marinas) are reasonably priced and the charts get updated. I've tried some other low cost navigation apps but this is the one I come back to most times.
  • AIS connection

    By wave1runner
    I purchased the AIS sensor module, I cannot get it to connect on IPad via the Lowrance NAIS 400 transponder. Customer support team offer no help.
