  • Missing ships

    By katherine salter
    If you offer a service make it accurate!
  • don’t waste your money

    By Dont waste$$
    was not able to get much tracking info on the cruise that my son was on recently
  • I don’t think so...

    By TGFBV
    Usually seems accurate. At the moment I am near Cleveland, and allegedly there are two vessels. One going from Sault Ste. Marie to Two Harbors (eastbound no less) and one going from Rogers City to Cheboygan (eastbound). WRONG!!
  • Where did the NOAA charts layover go?

    By workonthewater
    I have used this app for months and loved it. It is a valuable asset for doing my job. I especially loved the NOAA chart layover. Yesterday, when I wanted to use my app all of a sudden the NOAA charts were gone. Restoring purchases didn’t bring them back, reinstalling the app didn’t do the trick and I don’t see any option to select the NOAA charts layover as I was able in the past. Please help!
  • Disappointed

    By CJunette
    I wish I hadn’t of purchased this ap and the live view—- it doesn’t show anything “live” it’s historical views apparently and I e wasted $4.99 x2.
  • Didn’t work

    By Daily reader no more
    I paid for the fancy version, and I should have just stuck with the marine traffic free website.
  • Worst app I ever had!

    By markarz
    This is the worst app I ever had! I purchased upgrade and it charged me says restore is successfully and never works. Even after Apple upgrade this morning. Nothing! The worst app I ever had!
  • Wasted upgrade

    By Chris from Wisconsin
    I have used this previous years with success. This time it wasn’t working (there were no boats in off the coast of southern Florida), and so I figured I needed to purchase the offered 4.99 upgrade. Still no boats.
  • Stopped working

    By ship watcher in astoria
    I have used this app happily for more than a year. Today it stopped, showing no ships even as I watched a car carrier moving up the Columbia river. Contact support? Nothing. I paid for an upgrade last year. Do they want an annual fee? A notice then would be helpful instead of a blank screen.
  • Piece of garbage

    By Binkiss
    This app has no capabilities at all. It's merely a scam to get you to pay for the Pro version for $7.99, and who knows if that works?! Don't waste your time, effort or money. This thing could track a cork bobbing in a toilet!!!
