The Waypoint Nautical Almanac

THE WAYPOINT NAUTICAL ALMANAC

Tired of cursing at your cumbersome, hefty tomb of an almanac when coming into port and the pages keep blowing over? Wish you could have that data with your wherever you go so you can passage plan from the office? Now you can with this ingenious Nautical Almanac app!


It contains a marine directory (using some very wizzy Augmented Reality technology), tide data, in-depth nautical weather forecasts and much more, rolling lots of functions and data all into one exceedingly useful app!

Boat Beacon AIS App

Boat Beacon AIS App

This clever little app will act as a pocket AIS, showing all vessels, their heading, their CPA (Closest Point of Approach), MMSI and lots of other useful information you would expect from a full AIS system (the only caveat being, you need to be on the Internet, which when coastal cruising is rarely a problem these days).


Whilst I have the fine NASA AIS on board my little Albin Ballad, that requires diving down to the chart table, Boat Beacon allows me to see at a glance what the ships in my vicinity are doing.
