  1. increase the online viewer area.

    The actual chart area is very small in the online version. Can this be made larger?

      • give the user ability to update/change coordinates

        Once a pin has been dropped and saved, it would be nice to have the ability to change the coordinates on a pin all ready on the map.

            Not sure why our user docs are disappearing after 10 minutes. Can you describe the situation further. In the meantime, we’ve tried user-supported wiki docs and we found ourselves doing more editing than just creating the docs in the first place. A shabby excuse, but sometimes its better to simply do it oneself. We’ll keep at improving it. FYI, the docs should always be present in the phone / ipad / android device so let us know what’s happening there.

                      Hi, we’re more or less forced to keep up with the OS updates as Google and Apple provide them. It’s nigh impossible to support old versions of the app because there really isn’t a way to easily track thy myriad of OS updates in the course of a year (usually several). Have you thought about upgrading your Android? If you can’t / prefer not to and are otherwise stuck, please let us know and we’ll work on getting you a refund.

                    • Support for RayMarine SeaTalk? I know there are adapter that convert them to NMEA 0183.

                      Support for RayMarine SeaTalk/NMEA0183? A few of us on the Sailboatowner.com AskAllSailors forum have been talking about streamlining our electronics configurations and going to tablets with WiFi. I have your product on my cell phone which is awesome, but the display is a bit small for me. I know there are adapter that convert SeaTalk (the protocol that Raymarine uses for my wind, depth and speed log instruments. Raymarine has a SeaTalk to NMEA 0183 adapter, but then there would need to be a method for displaying data from those instruments as well as from my rudder angle indicator.

                      • Access chart panels offline

                        When you're not in cell range, and no wifi signal, the app will not refresh the downloaded charts as you move off the endge of the downloaded map. If the app could draw from a set of charts on an SD card, you could truly use it as a moving map/ chartplotter. Would be good to have course, speed, etc functions as well.

                          Loading charts via an SD card or removable media is something that we could implement (via Android, not iOS) once we have the right security technology in place – which is non-trivial. What we are focusing on right now is increasing the download region size per download so its a less onerous process. We’ll keep optimizing that process and see if that doesn’t resolve the problem at large.

                        • give the ability to change pin color.

                          When pin is dropped it becomes blue. I would be nice to have a couple of color options, like blue, red and green.

                              Is this on the iPhone or iPad or Android? Dealing with “clutter” is an on-going issue – no question and some form of waypoint sizing controls might be one way to at least allow users to customize the way they like to see things. We’ll keep thinking about this.

                            • Integrate the 'Active Captain' program into the EarthNC software.

                              Take a look at the Active captain website to see what it is and how it works, there are already a few other charting programs that have taken advantage of integration.

                                Creating routes on my laptop is a great use of your program - would be nice if the map size could be expanded to fill more of the computer screen.

                                  Hi there, if you click on the four arrow button on the top button panel, the screen goes to full-size taking up as much room as your browser / screen will allow.

                                • Cached Google Satellite maps in the Android app.

                                  Its easier to see some narrow or unmarked channels when you can see the water color changes on those images. Very helpful when flats fishing. Would be great even if its not overlaid with NOAA map data.

                                    Blackberry Playbook is ready and waiting for this app. It has both GPS functionality, and a magnetometer, as well as wifi and bluetooth. Marine charts would be a big improvement. Thanks

                                        • Where is Canada???

                                          I am most attracted to your app of all I've looked at. But I will be on Canadian west coast as well as US West coast.
