Did I miss something... I tried out the free demo a week or so ago. As far as I could work out all that you can do with this is VIEW the charts (OK only demos at present) but the s/w has no navigational functionality at all???

Not sure why I'd want to buy additional copies of charts just to look at them

They're out now...

I know I'm a bit late on this, but the Navionics electronic charts on iTunes are out now.
The free viewer gives you a chance to see all new features to the App, like taking geo-tagged pictures and sending them by email, and you can do the same with tracks and routes.

Have you had a chance to check them out?

iphone nav

Best money ever spent.
If its planning a trip around a table, wondering where you are on a european crossing or you just want a backup to your paper charts (which you should still have aboard) then this little application is top class.
Costs a little, but if you buy apple and like your iphone, it is not a big stretch.

My advice...... go for it.

Same here. I have written at length on this one on YBW (where they are all afraid of things that are not paper and rubber boats are all trendy tenders )

I have down loaded this app and is very good. Only thing is when we are at sea the chart does not seem to follow the boat, i.e chart stays still and does not follow the boat. Is there a setting I need to look for?

Graphics info etc fantastic.

Cheers

Jon

Hi Jon, I think you need to click on the GPS button then it will move the chart to suit.

Jon, did it work activating the gps button? I usually am prompted to activate GPS when I start recording a TRACK. Have you tried doing that?
