  • Overpriced and hidden fees

    By Around a bit
    This App uses the same AIS data that other free apps do. And then, even when you do buy it, you must pay a yearly subscription fee if you want to track more than 5 boats. The subscription for this is over $30 a year. I feel tricked into buying an app that won't have basic functions unless I pay 30 bucks a year.

    There are better apps for free. Absolutely lags in showing vessel movement compared to other apps. 4-6 hours behind.
  • It works

    By Sammy Chanae
    Good app. It is fairly accurate. Sometimes it can have a bit of lag, but could be due to the location of the vessel itself.

    AIS is slow to respond updates are late up to 30 hrs please monitor our area. It is very hard to update customers. Thanks
  • Waste of money

    Bought this to track a family cruise since they were in the Caribbean ahead of the hurricanes. The data doesn’t refresh frequently enough. It’s hours out of date. I found better data on free sites online.
  • No longer what it used to be.

    By noodavid
    With the new updates you can no longer see the name or details of vessels. In the past you could. I use the app to track of cruise ships have ported. I no longer can use this app. Now they want you to pay a huge amount per year to access this information. Horrible.
  • Tracking Made Easy!

    I’m an old Navy Radarman from before everything was computerized. This software has revolutionized the ocean shipping industry as far as being able to keep track of vessels of concern. I know we could have used this as an additional tool that would have proven itself in short order. I live in Belize and like to track the vessels coming down here from Florida so I can keep track of where items might be at that I’ve purchased and shipped down. It makes for a fun hobby too - kinda like train spotting used to be.
  • Very useful

    Beware, you may get an unauthorized charge $150 charged to your account. When you dispute it they will not remove it. Who wants to pay $150 for an app?
