Description

Wärtsilä iSailor is an easy-to-use marine and river navigation application for amateur seafarers. iSailor provides a clear presentation of navigational information, electronic charts and additional content. TX-97 vector charts supported by iSailor are recognized worldwide as one of the most accurate and reliable sources of navigational information. Check out the chart folios available for purchase on our website: isailor.us Chart folios can be purchased and downloaded in the iSailor Chart Store utilizing the standard iTunes Store payment/purchasing procedure.

  • One of the best interfaces around but disappointed about subscription

    By Mitulica
    Update January 2019. The change in iSailor App to a no-discount subscription model for the expensive charts is not welcome. I use both iNavx and iSailor since I also want to have access to NOAA electronic charts, but am often flummoxed by the iNavx UI. iSailor’s interface accomplishing tasks like building a route easier. Now if only an iPad could work in the rain or in bright daylight!
  • Very disappointing change to annual subscription

    By Alfiebelly
    I’m giving this app a 1 star rating due to the forced change from outright purchase-type to a subscription-type service. I initially paid what I thought was s premium price for a product on the justification that this was a one time payment for charts with an un-expiring update service. Now suddenly, I am required to pay annually for the same service that was already included in my initial purchase price! I can understand if they wish to do this for new customers, but to do this to the very customer base that probably contributed to the success of their business, is a very poor business decision indeed. They could have considered “grand fathering” in the existing customers. I have had no response to any of my service requests which is also suspect. There was never any difficulty in getting a response before. It’s almost as if they’re embarrassed and don’t know how to respond. Very disappointing. I’m sure most of their old customers will now be doing a fresh look at the competition.
  • Top app / Transas customers disappointment

    As a career professional mariner, instructor and active recreational boater I would say that this was a top application. Very useful and fair. The motivation for the change is evident and unless they somehow revert to the way that the charts were managed I am afraid that most customers will delete it from their devices. I think that the changes have not been communicated effectively and long time Transas customers will be very disappointed.
  • Extortion

    By Dopplarguy
    Wow this sure was a great app before you decided to extort your entire user base. I used to use this to teach my sailing classes basic navigation, but I won’t be paying a mandatory subscription for updates. I advise you to change it back and save your app while you still can, because these reviews won’t be getting any better.
  • Rif off by Wartsila switch to SEAiq

    As soon as Wartsila bought Transas they decided to migrate from iSailor to Wartsila Sailor and the rip off subscription service. Just deleted the app and will be using SEAiq USA where the digital nautical charts are free from NOAA.
  • I did love this app....... NO MORE!!!

    This used to be the best app. I used it because I work as a master sailing for a large commercial company and they use Transas so I am familiar with the charts etc. Seems they are getting away from pleasure craft business...... unfortunate. Guess I’ll have to revisit that upgrade I was pushing towards to get us up to full ECDIS capable aboard our vessels.... not if I have anything to do with it. I have paid a fair bit of money for the charts in the areas I run for work (to have as a backup) under the premise that they would be up to date. I WANT A REFUND!!!!!!!

    Oh my .... New owners.New name. (A silly name) New business plan. New price model. Seriously? This went from my favorite app. ... to crap. Imbeciles! I strongly suggest to start looking elsewhere. Take a look at Savvy-Navvy. Maybe even Embark.
  • Ridiculous since new update/owners

    By Just two stars
    Nice app untill the new subscription came in. Paying for chart folios, AIS subscription etc the way it was before was fair but now with the new update/owners it’s ridiculous. Prepare for losing a lot of users of this app. Good thing there are other thrustful similar apps out there for a better offer. Shame on you iSailor!
  • New Charges!?

    By Drossi21
    Being charged for updates on purchased maps is ridiculous!
  • New owner backtracking on paid subscribers

    By user-app99
    Have used this app for years. It had now changed hands and the new owners now charges for chart updates; just as much per annum as the original charts. Drop the app and go for another option like opencpn on android. Opencpn is a good app with high quality vector charts at a fair price. AIS overlay is included in the price.
