Celebrate the summer solstice with great chart deals

by Sail-World Cruising on 22 Jun 2013
Sailtimer App .. .
Some people will find any reason to celebrate, but passing through the summer solstice is as good as any for Sailtimer Inc to offer some great deals to sailors in the UK and in the USA, and Sail-World Cruising is happy to pass them on to our readers:

For UK sailors, there are low-cost low-cost marine charts to go along with Sailtimer's free app and wireless anemometer.

You have never seen prices as low as this for UK hydrographic charts. You get all of England, Ireland and Scotland for under £6.

Here's how to do the in-app purchase in the SailTimer app (or Charts Edition of the app). Under Options\Marine Charts, you can do an in-app purchase to download the charts right on to your iPad, iPhone or iPod.

You have a choice of streaming charts as you move the view around, or downloading all resolutions for the area in view.

You don't need to download the entire region all at once. Once cached, you can use the charts with no internet connection.

On the Marine Charts panel, there is also an option to put high-resolution insets for harbors on top to see on the main chart in view, or below to zoom down into.

...and then, for sailors around the USA there are low-cost NOAA US charts - a free App and 99¢ charts: From now until June 30th you can get the official US hydrographic charts in the SailTimer app (or Charts Edition) for 99 cents!

Don't have the App? Get the app in iTunes. Under Options - Charts, you'll see the NOAA charts for all US waters, with large regions to choose from.

Even their regular price for large US chart regions is a steal, compared to traditional prices for paper charts and cartridges. But it is pretty hard to beat a free chartplotter App, advanced sailboat navigation functions AND huge chart regions for 99-cents.

The SailTimer App is a full chartplotter for your iPad, iPhone or iPod. It will overlay your optimal tacks on a chart, and calculates your Tacking Time to Destination. The app is FREE in countries where we have hydrographic charts available (where it is called the Charts Edition).

Get it in https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/sailtimer-inc/id326309854!iTunes.
