PVcat's Review of Seaiq

Reviewed on 9/20/19 1:57 PM

I have been using SeaIQ for 2 years now. It was used to sail from fort Pierce to the Bahamas loading all Explorer charts (Raster). Then later loading all my vectors charts used on OpenCPN we sailed from the Bahamas to Cayman, Guatemala. Just had some issue with some S-63 charts - but I have the same issue with OpenCPN. The app is very intuitive and easy to learn. We are using it more now than our laptop and as a substitute to our Navionics chartplotter where some charts are unreliable. So far it is the best app for navigation. they could get all stars if I could use better Pacific Charts or my old CM-93 charts that are better than what their charts suppliers are selling!

Miserable chart downloader

Cooper-4-1-6's Review of Seaiq

Reviewed on 8/20/18 1:27 PM

Downloads, at least from the NOAA site, are excruciatingly slow in comparison to direct downloads from the site. Plus the app needs to be on screen with the iPad awake for downloads to complete. Any switching away can cause one or more chart downloads to fail, and you, rather than the app have to retry the update to pick up the missed charts. Lazy software design yields a poor user experience. The premium features would be worth the money but presumably the quality of the free version matches that of the paid version so no thanks.

My new favorite navigation app

I love this app, especially for their NMEA as AIS features as well as showing a data bar on the map. The only feature I'm missing is VMG.

CM93 NOT SUPPORTED???

I have been using SEAiq open for a few years now. I rely on free charts from NOAA for sailing in the USA, and charts from Chartworld for other areas. The app has proven to be very reliable, integrates with Active Captain, and Aye Tides data and others for complete offline use. Highly recommend the app S/V Cormorant

I am still searching for THE iPad navigation program. Someone recommended SEAiq to me. Without paying a cent, I was able to try it out and easily loaded my existing CM93 chart library onto my iPad. Very cool. To see below 50,000:1 chat detail, you do have to pay, but a reasonable price. Thumbs up for the try-before-you-buy capability. Have not actually navigated with it yet, but will soon.

Great app, .....

Egsellix's Review of Seaiq

SEAiq is the best chartplotter available for the iPad for use by recreational cruisers in areas that low cost digital charts are available. In other areas the cost of chartworld and primar charts are excessive for recreational boats, when other chartplotters can use charts as good as the chartworld and primar charts at 10% of the cost, and 1% of the aggravation. If SEAiq can fix this inequity, I would give it 10 stars, not just five.

Nice Navigation Program

Old comm guy's Review of Seaiq

Reviewed on 11/27/18 12:39 PM

Have used a lot of navigation programs on laptops. Use mostly CM93 charts of the world, using Open CPN on the laptop sailing all over the world. If SEAiq no longer supports CM93 charts, well when I loose the version that works I will no longer use SEAiq. That was a LOT of money to waste for no support. S/V Selah

Works with CM93 A-OK

kiltym's Review of Seaiq

Nice. Now I can use the same charts on my iDevice as I can on OpenCpn, cm93. I installed the entire world on a iPod Touch 4. Rendering can be a bit slow/choppy when starting out, but seems to cache some information as it gets a bit better when viewing areas already viewed previously. Would be nice to get GPS data from a TCP/IP source instead of only built in GPS (since mine does not have one). Will also conserve battery life if the internal GPS can be disabled. I could see this product be a great companion to OpenCpn as new features are added to the product. If the developer could provide a good integration/complement to OpenCpn I think there would be lots of interest. Add some pages to repeat NMEA data and you could easily have a repeater for your Nav system as well (assuming they offer TCP/IP support for nmea data). Well done so far, and looking forward to updates.
