This app seems to consume the processor, as zooming in / out and moving the map around takes several seconds to respond, and battery life is short when its running. It was the only app I could find to show GPS position on a NOAA chart, but it really needs work to make it more responsive.

Excellent navigation app!
I use this app every time I sail. It is accurate, has many great options and has a very detailed help section. I reported a minor issue and a new version with the fix was released within a few days.
I purchased both iSail and iHike apps this year and they are both TERRIFIC! They were easy to download and easy to used. I sailed both offshore and inside small harbors in New England and found the iSail app to be incredibly useful. I chartered a sailboat this year and the chartplotter mounted on the boat was old and lacked detail. I found the iSail app especially useful when going in and out of small harbors, which required knowing precisely where I was relative to the shallow areas, which I needed to stay away from. It was no problem holding my iphone while steering the boat. I still brought hard copy maps and used the boats compass, but this app greatly enhanced my ability to safely navigate, especially in tight places. iHike performed just as well when I went horseback riding on 80 miles of unmarked trails in Colorado in a area that was "off the grid" (I gave a separate review on the iHike site). Thanks for making such great apps!
Constantly fails when downloading charts. Do not buy!
Doesnt work for me
There are no maps for the Tennessee River, I want my money back.
Sorry that I bought this. Slow. Unworkable map loading even on wifi!
I quit using it
It seems to be an OK sailing app. but I couldn’t get past the way it stitched the “paper" charts together (there seemed to be trouble at the seams, and loading the charts when I needed them, etc). I have SEAiq on also and ended up always using that instead. It’s $10 so also a good value. I wish I hadn’t have spent the money on iSail because I never use it now.
