App Store Description

SeaPal is an App for sailors and other water sport fanatics that support the skipper in his tasks for navigation, route planing and logbook keeping. The central view shows a map with the current position and forward line. Waypoint and routes can easily be created, distances and courses can quickly be determined and documented in the logbook. The touch interface allows for fast and intuitive interaction.

Online maps are available from Apple, along with satellite view. With these a trip can easily be planed and documented. In navigation the offline operation and the precision and depth of detail is of special importance. Thats why digital sea maps for selected areas can be downloaded and used offline.
Charts are available for the coasts of USA incl. Great Lakes, Argentina, Brasil, The Netherlands, German coasts of North Sea and Baltic, New Zealand. Inland Waterways of Germany and Netherlands.
For the area of Lake Constance, Bavarian Lakes and Mecklenburg Great Lakes excellent sea maps provided by the IBN publishing house are available as extensions. Further areas are in preparation.

The application was developed particularly for the iPad in a cooperation between the IBN publishing house and the HTWG Constance University. The specific advantages of a mobile device and the touch interface were taken into account just as well as the special requirements of sailors and skippers. As a result of this cooperation, SeaPal is made available for free. Extensions and sea maps can be purchased and loaded according to your area and needs.

This cooperation is open to further extension. Should you be interested to develop or provide further extensions, please contact us.

The application runs on the iPad and with reduced functionality on the iPhone. An iPad with 3G or 4G and GPS is recommended. For longer use an external power source (like a USP port of a radio) is required.

Warning: SeaPal is a valuable addition to your navigational equipment, but no replacement. Always use official sea maps in conjunction. All positions are provided so that a transition to paper sea maps is simple. The responsibility for the proper use lies with the skipper. The manufacturer of SeaPal assume no liability.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
