Publisher Description

This interactive book provides a step by step guide to using Navionics and Marine Tides Planner, specifically for route planning on the iPad. With supporting iPad screen views showing how to add, insert and otherwise manage waypoints and co-ordinates within new or already existing routes it provides step by step operating information, far beyond what is covered in the official Manuals.


It takes, as an example, a route from Portland to Christchurch, Dorset in a 27 foot, bilge keeled, sailing yacht, and uses the difficulties that might be encountered as a context within which to explain the workings of the Navionics and Tides Planner Apps.


It shows, step by step, how the data required for making safe and efficient sea passages for small boats, using the tidal currents to the best possible advantage, can be derived from the iPad.


It also outlines a suggested system for producing a laminated ‘Routelist’ style passage plan and a 'screen grabbed'  route ‘Chartlet’, for hard copy use at the chart table or in the cockpit.


Marine Tides Planner App tools are also explained using a practical example of an overnight stay in Christchurch harbour.


Many interactive illustrations are used to visually indicate exactly what to expect from Navionics or Marine Tides Planner on the iPad, when you are using it for passage planning or managing your existing routes.

Terrible

Sadly not the useful book of tips & tricks to getting the most out of Navionics on your iPad that I thought it would be. In fact there isn’t a single thing to be learned about how to use any of the useful features this bit of kit gives you. The author is stuck in the past and uses the whole book to try and show off knowledge of how to work out set & drift etc using the app. Not what it’s meant for!
