App Store Description

Maptech iPlot - Real Time Chart Plotting App

The Maptech iPlot app is simple to use chart plotter app that utilizes many of the same routing functions that Maptech uses in their digital software. The iPlot uses the same NOAA nautical charts you are familiar with from Maptech chart plotting programs such as Offshore Navigator, Chart Navigator Pro, Sea Ray Navigator and i3 Navigator. Plan routes, place marks, and easily zoom and scale charts with your fingers. The iPlot features a smooth and fast chart quilting engine that makes going from one chart to the other seamless. Once the app and charts are downloaded no data connection is required for operating the iPlot app.

The Maptech iPlot App purchase includes all US small scale planning charts which can be downloaded from the Chart Download page within the app. To accurately navigate with the Maptech iPlot App you will need to purchase a region of charts for your area of interest. These chart regions can be download from within the app itself from the Chart Download page at an additional cost of $9.99 each. All charts are updated every January and neither the app or the charts require a subscription fee nor will they ever expire.

If your iPad was purchased with the ability to subscribe to a data plan from your provider, it already has a built in GPS and does not require a Wi-Fi or external GPS to navigate with the iPlot app. You can tell this easily by looking at the top display bar to see if you have the indicator bars for cell strength, if you do then you have a GPS built in. If not, your iPad does not have a built in GPS and you will need to turn on location services and Wi-Fi capability to receive your location to navigate with the iPlot app. However, if you plan on using this outside of urban areas where there is no location services network, you will lose the ability to track your position. It is highly recommended that if you plan on using the Maptech iPlot for real time navigation and your unit is one without a GPS that you use it with an external plug in or bluetooth GPS. We recommend the Bad Elf GPSs. We also recommend Snow Lizard Products iPad cases which have optional Bad Elf GPS receivers built in.
