Very satisfied with it, good route planner and it contains an incredible amount of information. Nice that the lights are now also included, even more complete 👍🏻

Great app, route planning is very easy. The app is full of current sailing information and other maritime necessities for safe planning/sailing. Once again a fantastic app


Lots of information. A lot of information, occasionally I have to look for the time when the bridge is currently being operated, but nowhere is a better collection together.
