GPS navigation on iPhone/iPad just got easier for sailing America

With the updating of the boating app 'Simple Charts', navigation that is easy-to-use and affordable has never been so available for America’s Boaters - or for sailors just visiting.

There are 12.5 million registered boaters in the USA, and that doesn't include the visiting boats. Derek Trauger's Simple Charts combines an always-available mobile chart plotting solution, regardless of whether you have an Internet connection (charts must first be pre-cached), with a truly clutter-free interface.
This handy navigation app offers full resolution seamless marine charting and is compatible with both the iPhone and iPad.
With just a few simple screen taps, boaters can view all NOAA Raster Navigational Charts (RNCs) that automatically load no matter where you are in the U.S. Using the handy in-app purchase users can now add charts of Brazil, with more areas to be added.
Simple Charts is available as an iPhone/iPad app download for just $9.99, still the most affordable, full-featured GPS charting app currently offered.
It is also available for Android phones! You can download the program by clicking http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/simple-charts/id451093694?mt=8#!iTunes.
