    The best navigation software available for portable devises. Profession Yacht Captain here and go nowhere without ISailor and my Dual XGPS.
  • Beware!

    If you purchase charts, they will unilaterally shrink coverage and try to sell you more. My purchase of “Pacific Coast” recently became California only, and I lost the rest of the coast. To regain the rest of the coast will be very expensive. DO NOT BUY!!!
  • All saved trips gone since “upgrade”

    Have used this program for years...works great. Actually love it and rely on it. However, after the automatic update ALL my saved trip plots are gone. I now need to re-plot everything. If you knew this would happen why would you first not offer us to save our routs somehow? Very disappointed....
  • Terrific value, overall, but with a caveat for the tides plug-in

    I have used this app everywhere, from Biscayne Bay, to the Adriatic, to the middle of the Caribbean. It can get a bit cluttered, but overall it’s great for basic route planning and tracking, and generally pretty intuitive to use. When sailing a thousand-mile passage in the Caribbean, it was great to be able to pull my iPhone out of my pocket at any time, day or night, and see our heading, COG, speed, and distance to waypoint. But... I recently bought the tides and tidal currents plug-in, in order to plan a voyage in the Pacific Northwest. The currents really rip, up there, so it’s critical to have down-to-the-minute accuracy on tides. To ensure accuracy, I compared times in the app with times on the Canadian government’s official tide tables, and found that the times were waaaay off. They weren’t event close. I soon realized that I needed to set the time zone in the iPad (I’m on the East Coast) to the time zone where I was planning my voyage (British Columbia). After doing that, and adjusting the Canadian tide tables for daylight savings time, the times were much closer. But close won’t count when crossing Seymour Narrows.
  • Excellent navigation aid

    I’ve been using iSailor for a few years now on both my iPhone and iPad. I’ve had literally no issues! I admit that I often don’t read documentation as I should, but that’s precisely why I chose to write a review. It is a very easy app to learn and to use, which allowed effective use from the very start. So rather than studying the documentation to begin using the app, one turns to the documentation only to bring in more of the advanced navigational features as desired. Highly recommended!
  • Lost all my electronics

    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.
