App Description

Professional marine navigation used to require an expensive GPS plotter. Now, same technology used in merchant shipping is available for the iPhone.

Seapilot lets you navigate like a pro with vectorized S-57 chart data from National Maritime Administrations. Seapilot uses the iPhone’s built in GPS, so it works even when there is no mobile network coverage. This is the first navigation app to feature Automatic Identification System (AIS) and AIS weather in real time, when within a mobile network. Charts available as In-App Purchase.

A wonderful portable accessory for boating enthusiasts, kayakers and even long-distance skaters. Use it to navigate, to plan tomorrow’s boat trip or reminisce about yesterday’s. (PS. Even works in your sofa at home.)

Seapilot for iPhone features:
• Professional navigation based on merchant shipping standards for ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System)
• S-57 chart data (In-App Purchase) and AIS data from National Maritime Administrations
• AIS (Automatic Identification System) for real-time tracking of vessels equipped with an AIS transponder.
• Weather in real time via AIS from national weather stations showing wind speed and direction, air pressure, temperature, etc. (At present only in Sweden. To be extended.)
