Ipad and information on boats

Recommended Posts

Some of us use iPads in our full time line of work. With Watershed bags, you can take your iPad out onto the water and have access to weather, coastal watch, our Navionics app and more. And, it is bigger than your phone.

I bought this app earlier this spring and it has never worked out on lake Ontario. Any suggestions?

It works at my house and cottage, but it just can't find me out on the lake. I use a Verizon mifi. My cell service is Verizon and I have know problems.

If it works at home and at the cottage, the GPS receiver is turned on. Since it is not working out on the lake, could something be blocking the GPS receiver? A drybag or something?

Here are some excerpts from our troubleshooting page:

http://www.navionics.com/MarineFAQs_Pla ... egoryID=13

The Android phone calculates your position using its internal GPS, as well as any additional available signals i.e. Wi-Fi and/or cell signals. The Navionics Mobile app does not require Wi-Fi nor cell signals to function. Only a GPS signal is required to determine your location.

With the Android phones, location technology is built into the device. Your approximate location is determined using available information from cellular network data, local Wi-Fi networks (if you have Wi-Fi turned on), and GPS (GPS not available in all locations). Once you have downloaded Navionics Mobile applications to your Android phone, they are resident on your device and are a reliable tool to access charts even when not in cell range.

The newer apps are all inclusive for US. Go to the android marketplace and search for Navionics. Older versions were More regionally oriented.
