We have been working hard to ensure Apple Watch versions of all our marine apps are ready for you as soon as you get your new Apple Watch. Boat Beacon, our signature app, now gives you collision alerts directly on your wrist with CPA time and distance information and a map overview. Check your next waypoint wherever you are on your boat with a compass view, cross track error (XTE), distance and ETA on our SeaNav watch app. Spot nearby boats, track your ferry or a boat of interest and get arrival and departure alerts with our Boat Watch app on Apple Watch.

As ever – ship photos to help you identify it.
And the great news ….. the watch apps are all free upgrades to our existing apps 🙂

SeaNav now has official Canadian charts available provided by the Canadian Hydrographic service (CHS) covering the whole of the Canadian coast and main inland waters. Includes the Northern parts of the Great lakes, St Lawrence River and Seaway, Vancouver and lots lots more. Before now this complete set of Canadian digital marine charts would have set you back a few thousand dollars. Now you can get them all via a $29.99 ( 34.99 CAD) In App Purchase (IAP) in both our SeaNav US and SeaNav HD apps for iPhone and iPad.
Here is a map showing the chart coverage (outlines in red). You can also check the coverage in our app before you purchase . The Canadian charts will be outlined in blue and marked with CA.
Here is a screenshot of the new charts covering Vancouver – loads more detail when you zoom in 🙂
