Its Battery Consumption Monitoring will stop the track recording when the battery is too low, in order to ensure the phone is still usable at the end of your outdoor's day. ► iOS BACKGROUND MODE Aqua Map works also when in background, you can receive/make calls and messages while the track recording is running. ———— Like any GPS, the signal quality can vary very much depending by the amount of visible sky, foliage, weather condition, etc. GPS is not reliable indoor. The continuous GPS usage, also in background, can drastically reduce the battery life.



  • Use with IPad

    I bought this app for my iPad thinking I could use it as a substitute for a chart plotter. The maps are brilliant, lots of reference and way pointing set up is a snap. However it doesn't track when I use my non phone iPad and portable hot spot. (Wi-fi only) Evidently you need the built in phone for tracking?It's does work on my 6 plus but that's a challenge for old eyes. If anyone knows related information please post as this product would be great to use.
  • Not bad

    By Fishfreak32
    The map detail is just so so but it is accurate which is a plus. I was looking for the navionics app but it was unavailable at the time I bought the app I know have both apps and don't really use this one but it is a great back up.
  • A waste of time!

    I spent 2 days trying to work this app. Oh sure, it's great if you are using an iPad and that's it. I was trying to share the kmz file it produces and not only goes my garmin sw not open it, neither will google earth or anything else. I even googled, "what opens a kmz file?" And tried 3 different sw's and none opened it. So, if want to share the files it produces, forget it!
  • Love it!

    I use this and Navionics. This one has Active Captain capability.
  • So far, so good

    Just added this app. Will be using during an upcoming trip and compare. Having Active Captain is a great plus.
  • Issue with new version

    By Kyussxl
    Original version was great. It does not open since Aug 26 update.
  • Does not work

    By gmb9000
    Poor app. Now will not open with OS 7.1.2 No instructions or help only a brief demo.
  • Not worth the price

    By Saraths89
    Average map app. Not very useful. But only available offline marine map that can track & record marine route. But defiinetly worth shelling out unless you are an avid boat rider/marine traveller. But app is neat with simple interface. Has nautical charts for fishing and sailing.Good design and interface.
  • OK

    By TJSynkral
    Seems like a nice idea but it's very annoying having to download map tiles one by one, and the map data is not fully fleshed out.
  • Nice

    By TychoX2
    An excellent nautical GPS map that can be used for any number of outdoor activities, including fishing and sailing. One word to the wise, use a waterproof iPad case!
