Aqua Map for Android

>>> Aqua Map for Android >>>

About a year ago, Aqua Map released their mobile navigation app for iPhone and iPad with ActiveCaptain support. This week they've added an Android version to their product line. And it too has ActiveCaptain support.

We love the Aqua Map developers and their products. They are excellent offline chart navigation products. They keep ActiveCaptain offline and synchronized so no internet connection is needed while underway to access any ActiveCaptain data.

There are different versions of Aqua Map Android based on the geographic area you're interested in. Make sure to carefully examine the product before purchasing it.

There are versions for a single US state but you can also purchase the full US version. Since their introductory pricing is so great, it makes sense to get the full version. For example:

Full US version: $3.90

Canada version: $3.79

They also have European support - here are some examples:

UK & Ireland: $15.34

Germany: $10.97

These early versions support basic navigation, tracks, markers, and GPS. They'll be adding other features to make it identical to their iOS product. But this is an opportunity to buy it at these low introductory prices and get the free updates.

Aqua Map / GEC has also made a web app and they have some incredible product development capabilities. We have some projects with them coming up in 2016 that we can't wait to tell you about too!

For more information about the Aqua Map product including their iOS version, see:

If you have questions about the product, please write to them for help:

Dylan and Dee Dee are short timers here in Castine with their time in Maine quickly slipping away. They have been weathering many changes this summer as we all prepare to leave our land-based home behind. But soon they will be back onboard ready to find their next adventure. You can look in on their final week as landlubbers by checking out their blog:
