Navigational App

Publish date:

Seapilot’s Social Boating Facebook integration lets users see friends who have attached their Facebook account to an AIS target, and search for their boats. In addition to real-time weather data from AIS, users have access to a five-day forecast from MeteoGroup. For sailors, polar files can compute the fastest course for race planning. Charts are downloaded directly to an Apple or Android mobile device, so Internet access isn’t necessary. Annual subscriptions are $39.99 (iOS) and $37.99 (Android). Seapilot (True Heading), (786) 747-9812.
