Garmin has released the BlueChart Mobile App in the iTunes Store.
The App will turn your iPad or iPhone with iOS6 or later into a Marine Navigation system. It also gives you the opportunity to let your current Garmin ChartPlotter “work” with your iDevice if you have bought the Garmin Marine Network Wi-Fi Adaptor.
The App is free but if you want any usable maps – they cost money. And only with paid options do you get Tide and Current information.
The BlueChart Mobile App is a direct competitor to Navionics and Jeppesens similar products. Navionics has had a great run – where Jeppesens Plan2Nav has not gotten much attention.
We will be back with a full review and more updates later. Watch this space. In the meantime you can check out the full description on iTunes – Garmin BlueChart Mobile
