Transas iSailor Navigation and Charting App

Application: iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch
Function:  Marine Navigation and Charting
Cost: App is free, charts are $4.99 per region
Rating:  ***

I am like a kid in a candy store when I am searching the iTunes App Store for new boating, sailing and navigation apps.  Today I found one that I had not run across or heard of before.  iSailor by Transas Ltd. has updated it's app to version 1.2 as of December 2010. The new version looks promising.
I had never heard of  the company Transas either but after a little research I found out that they are a world wide developer and supplier of navigation systems to the commercial shipping and aviation industry.  Their headquarters in in St Petersburg, Russia with international offices in Cork, Ireland.
The iSailor app is touted as an easy to use charting system for amateur boater. It has the basic features of a GPS navigation and charting program but comes up short of being a full featured program.  I guess I should not be so critical of a free app but I would rather see the company charge a little bit for it and add the features to make it a great app.


Features:
  • The iSailor app is free to download from iTunes
  • Chart sets are purchased for $4.99 to $24.99 each.
  • Chart positioning can use internal GPS or cellular location.
  • Charts are provided by Transas's own vector chart format TX-97
  • Charts are downloaded from within the app.
  • Chart orientation can be changed by twisting you fingers to orient the map anyway you want
  • Panning and multi touch capability are utilized to move around the chart
  • Soft keys on bottom of app include GPS, Info, Measuring, Record Track, Routes and settings
  • Monitors Lat, Long, Course and Speed on a overlay on top of the screen
  • Day and night chart coloring

Pros:
I liked the app but there are a few things that I found lacking when compared to some of the other apps in this class.  The bright spot with iSailor are the charts.  I am impressed with the look and feel of the charts themselves. Depths are shown in gradients with different colors.  There seems to be a lot of detail with lights, wreck and points of interest both on the water and shore.


One tap to the screen brings up the soft keys which allows GPS tracking, an information feature, a measuring feature, a track recorder, routing and settings. Tapping the GPS shows the users location on the chart.  The information features brings up a overlay on top of the screen that shows latitude, longitude, course and speed. Page to the right shows just course and speed. Page right again and it shows the active route.
The measuring feature worked by tapping and holding the pinpoint. The indication of distance and bearing is shown on the display. Track recording is turned off and on by tapping the track soft key a REC indication let you know when the tracking is in record mode. 

The routing function works by tapping and holding your finger to create a new point, continue tapping and holding to create additional points in the route. In the saved routes it also has a handy fuel consumption calculator. You can set your cruising speed and fuel consumption and it will calculate how much fuel will be consumed during that route.

Cons:
One thing that was missing was the ability to create and name a waypoints. This seems like a no brainer but maybe I am missing something here.  You can create points in a route and view those but there seems to be no way to rename them as a waypoint. It does have the ability to save and rename a route.  Within routes you can view the points but you cannot rename them.


I downloaded the app and bought a map region to give it a try. I like what I see so far but hope the authors will add additional features to build on an already slick looking app.

  1. Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the review. You are right: iSailor is the pilot app for Transas on iOS platform. We are trying to apply competence and technologies that we accumulated from professional marine market.

    Could you please express your opinion: What functionality should be added into the next app versions?

    Many thanks,
    Eugene, Transas Technology Ltd.

    PS. Thanks for your note re waypoints naming.

  2. Eugene, I will run through your app again and come up with some recommendations for future enhancements. Any other readers of the review, please feel free to list what you would like added to the app. Transas look like a large company with alot of resources, this could be good!

    5. MOB, man overboard feature.
    6. Ability to add notes to charts
    7. POI points of interest in the area

  4. Dear Mark,

    Thanks a lot for your suggestions!

    I would not give any promises right now but we will definetely put this into consideration.

    Dear all, please do not hesitate as well.

    In turn, if you have any questions to us please ask them either here or via the product web site.

    All the best,
    Eugene

    PS. The ability to add (and insert waypoints) exists!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I was able to add what you call waypoints in a route but there was no way to rename them. I suppose you could make a route with one point and rename the route. You do allow renaming routes.

    Most apps have the ablility to just make a waypoint at the current location or at a point you select on the chart. I did not find that functionality. I might have missed it. Is there a users guide out yet?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Mark, we had an impression that it's better to avoid users guide need for iOS application. However in that case if it's not obvious for the user means that we should improve the usability.

    I guess the problem was you have to enter route editing mode again (in the low toolbar), select "Edit current route". Then you can either add or insert waypoints.

    Waypoints renaming is absent - You are correct - to be implemented.

    Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at i-Marine Apps. I posted a comment to the author about this above. They do not allow creating waypoints yet but are working on improvements.
    In iSailor you can create a route to your waypoint using the Route icon second from the right. Just start tapping on the map to create points in the route. Go into setting with the far right icon) and Select Routes to view the Route. It does allow you to rename the route by tapping on the name field.

    Have fun

  12. I'm also a great fan of the app! I've installed it on my
    IPhone. 2 days ago i tool some friends for an
    evening cruise on the bay, an I was very impessed
    with the app - it's very handy with a plotter
    in you pocket

    I have on small question: how do I transfere
    the maps that I've bought to my IPad?

    Kind Regards,

    ReplyDelete
  13. Gunnar,

    I have the same problem. I bought the iPhone version originally and then bought an iPad. I installed the app on my iPad and no maps. Since they are an in app purchases I don't think you can transfer them. Maybe Transas could help us out. I will look into it.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have iSailor for the iPhone. It looks promising, and the charts are comparably cheap. However, I'm not very happy with a few basic things:

    1. Is there really no way to enter coordinates? I want to add a waypoint to a known harbour.
    2. Nor can I find any way to search for a name. I want to find 'vinga' and navigate there. Most likely by adding a waypoint.
    3. Missing compass direction for selected or next waypoint. Now, I've not used iSailor at sea, does it show up when close enough to a route? This is crucial!
    4. Zooming out does not use retina display, but switches to larger blocks of graphic too early. Very annoying.
    5. Names disappear too early when zooming out. On a larger scale you can't read even what a city or bay is called.
    6. I bought the Baltic North chart, but it does not contain Mälaren, the whole water district west of Stockholm. There was no way to see this from the chart store, because the preview is too small and the text not detailed enough. Now, this is where I'm going, which makes the app pretty worthless even if it was comparably cheap.

    Features I'd also like:
    1. Way made good. I.e the speed and distance for the target vector, compared to actual course. Very informative for sailing.
    2.Bridge clearance displayed.
    3. Satellite picture overlay

    The software is simply not finished yet.
    Regards

  15. These comments apply to version 1.4.0.

    After using SeaClear and raster charts for a couple of years, I decided to try out the iPad for navigation. I downloaded iSailor and purchased the chart for lake Saimaa (Finland) yesterday on a whim, thanks to the free software and very reasonable price of the local chart, and I must say that I am very impressed.

    iSailor offers some pretty nice features, such as basic navigation data, useful route planning with import/export, POIs, chart rotation and route up navigation. It does not have the exhaustive navigation data and instrument features of SeaClear, but it satisfies my needs perfectly.

    I would like to see some improvements to the POI feature, such as the ability to create a new point based on coordinates (as pointed out previously) and showing the coordinates of the selected point live on screen during point creation. Also, it would be nice to have a seaparate menu item for POI's and the ability to use them for route creation.

  16. Dear Gunnar and Mark,

    Starting from version 1.4.0 the procedure of getting charts on both devices has become even more simple. You have to download Transas iSailor app on your second device, press the "Restore" button.
    You will see all your previously purchased folios in the category "Already paid". Press the "Download" button and install these folios on your device. You will not be extra charged (important! use the same iTunes account).

  21. Hi Mark,

    thanks for this informative blog!

    I am currently evaluating options for a chart plotting app to take with me on our cruise in the Argolic gulf. iSailor looks very promising to me, and the charts are probably sufficient for our "hobbyist" purposes.

    Has there been any announcement from Transas regarding a feature release schedule? One of the most important use cases iSailor is obviously not supporting in its current version, is entering waypoints by coordinates. Successfully entering the correct waypoint via touching the chart involves too much luck, I think (especially taking into account my not-so-slim fingers and the movement of the boat!). Importing waypoints from a third application is too complicated, unless you intend to follow a fixed itinerary very strictly.

    Felix

    ReplyDelete
  22. Felix,

    I totally agree with you. I like iSailor too by the way it handles waypoints is not good. It is difficult to create the waypoint where you want it and I have not found a way to delete the waypoints or edit the coordinates in any way.

    In Routes you can rename the waypoint and move it around in edit mode but you still can not change the coordinates by typing them in.

    Transas has made some great improvements since I reveiwed it. I can only hope they add the ability to edit the coordinates of the waypoints. Eugene from Transas, if you are listening we want the ability to edit the coordinates of the waypoints.

  23. Hi Mark,

    Sorry for the delay, I just noticed your message.

    The new version supporting manual coordinates input will be available very soon - it's ready and awaiting Apple's approval. I hope it would take 1-2 weeks not more.
    I will keep you updated.

  25. Thanks Mark!

    The version 1.5.0 is available in AppStore for download.
    What's new:
    - Completely redesigned interface with multiple layouts;
    - Free cursor / Locator tool;
    - Waypoint monitoring: XTE and ETA parameters are added;
    - Additional Electronic Range and Bearing Line tool referenced to own ship symbol;
    - Support of long time track recording;
    - Manual input of coordinates for Waypoint and User info objects;
    - Support of GPX for import and export;
    - The problem with chart disappearing due to limited device memory space has been fixed.

    For sure we will continue further enhancements and new features are already in our plan since iSailor is a full ahead ongoing project for TRANSAS.

    Many thanks and Best Regards,
    Eugene

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hi Eugenie,
    Your 1.5.1 is a big improvement thank you. We tested it today in our yacht and while it is more useful there is one more improvement which needs to be made. The ETA assumes that the yacht heading is the same as the bearing to the waypoint. This is not always the case especially for a yacht which is tacking into the wind. This could be improved if you take the cosine of the angle between the bearing and the heading and apply this to the calculation for the ETA.
    Regards

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Dear AI,
      Thanks a lot for the positive and constructive feedback. The only correction I would mention that the cosine should be taken between the bearing and the COG. Anyway personally I agree there is a common sense. We will check and fix the behavior in one of the nearest updates.

  34. I have just started to look at iSailor and it does look promising.
    I have Imray Charts app which has some nice features but in my opinion is seriously flawed because it uses raster charts which would be fine if it could seamlessly join them. Navigating around the charts is rubbish. So Vector charts are better and isailor's appear to be good. Immediate thoughts. NMEA input via WIFI or blue tooth because one of the big problems with built in GPS is the battery drain and putting an ipad in a sealed case makes external power difficult, and maybe being able to stream AIS data through WIFI would be fantastic. How about a compas? Certainly agree with AL that ETA to waypoint must be a true ETA based on the speed of approach not the SOG, bit of a no brainer.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Richie,

      You are right, vector charts have many advantages over raster charts. Take a look at my other iSailor review of version 1.5. Transas has made many new improvements making it a real contender.

  39. I would really like to see this on Android. I am cruising Saimaa in Finland this summer and from a previous comment you obviously have charts for that.

    All the marine apps on Android seem to just support the NOAA charts which is fine if you live in the US but what about the rest of us.

    Android is now 3 times bigger than apple on phones and is about to overtake them on tablets. Android should be a priority for you given the market.

    Does anyone else have suggestions for apps with Saimaa charts on Android?

    On that point i will also jump on the android bandwagon as It will be a whole lot easier for me to use an android tablet cost wise providing I can utilize my paid for maps.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hello Slam,
    Thank you very much for the kind words and a good question.
    Sorry for this and I fully understand your frustration however all iOS app deveolpers are forced to follow Apple policies and restrictions. With iOS7 introducing Apple issued new development tools those you have to use for publishing new apps with no choice, and these tools are not compatible with old iOS versions and devices including iPad1 accordingly.
    We consider launching Android version in mid 2014 - not within recent season in Australia. During this season we definetely issue some new versions of iSailor for iOS with additional and essencial features.
    If you'd like to jump to Android anyway, I'd suggest to stick to some well known and widely used brandname and up-to-date hardware since it has much more chances to be supported and regularly tested by us when launching iSailor for Android. Do not stick to any noname and low-end gadget.
    Hope this helps a bit.

  49. Joan,

    Welcome to the blog! iSailor does allow import of kmz files through email or through iTunes. Check out the user manual here http://isailor.us/faq/i/Transas_iSailor_User_Manual.pdf

    It sounds like you are doing it correctly. Try deleting the app and reinstalling the latest version, there appears to be some issue with the app.

    Contact iSailor with the issue if it persists. Good luck.

    Mark

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hello Mark, Hello Joan,

    You're correct.

    Most probably the kml file contains no routes and tracks but only isolated waypoints information that is supported starting from 1.6.0 version. The version is already under Apple approval recently.

    Please liaise with iSailor support (you can do it directly from the iSailor app, Settings/Feedback) and attach your kml file for our verification. We will check that in new version your waypoints are imported properly.

    2. Hello Mark,

      In case your kml file contains track or route data - it's imported properly.

      If it contains only isolated geo points (waypoints, POI etc.) - those cannot be imported in 1.5.7, only starting from 1.6.0.

  51. I rarely comment or post on blogs or anything but I wanted to chime in say that, after WEEKS of exhaustive research (with alot of help from this blog) and experimenting, iSailor is DEFINITELY one of the best Marine Charting apps on the mobile market. The charts are fantastic, as good as any Navionics (at least here in South Florida), the charts are constantly updated from within in the app. No bizzare third party websites to separately buy charts and subscribe to "data services" (you know exactly which one I'm talking about).

    ISailor definitely does it right, combining all the good of in-house apps by the chart company themselves (like Navionics) with all the actual GPS functionality of dedicated charting apps (like iNavx and SeaIQ). Absolutely fantastic.

    I'm still getting the hang of all the ins and outs (I found it hard to create a route) but definitely super pleased with this app. Its stunning because it isnt mentioned NEARLY as much on all the blogs and forums as the other big 2 (iNavx and Navionics) yet I think it is truly better than both. And the app itself is free and the chart for my area was 5 friggin dollars!

    Navionics native app would be a definite contender if it wasnt so lackluster in actual GPS functions. iNavx would be the supremo if it weren't so bizarrely complicated and obscenely expensive. This is THE dark horse in the marine charting wars, poised to easily become the best as it goes on.

    Definitely going to need to be able to import Waypoints as simply waypoints (as opposed to just routes) but thats already coming in 1.6 (which is out soon apparently according to Eugene). After that, the sky is the limit. So so so pleased with this app, it's a crime so much attention is paid to those other 2 while this one is so often over looked.

    For the record, I think SeaIQ is another fantastic app if you want to use NOAA charts (better at it than iNavx).

      Thanks you for you comments. I too have been a fan of iSailor since I first reviewed it over 2 years ago. They have come a long way and have added many new features over the years.

      The developers continue to add functionality. They have been active and helpful on this blog answering questions and providing comments. Thanks Euguene! I have other reviews of some of the versions over the years. Simply search for iSailor in the Search this Blog box in the right column.

      Your comments about the charts are very true. Make it easy to purchase, download and update. Keep it simple, KISS!

      I am sure iSailor will be around for years to come and I expect development will continue. I will do my best to keep you all updated on the new developments.

  53. ISailor is excellent. Have used it for journey to Madeira from UK and it was the best chart software we had. Better than Navionics on Raymatine chart plotter as much better screen info on IPad and easier to zoom and position ship on screen so can see what's ahead. Please continue to develop it and Android version would be wonderful.

    1. Ed,

      Thanks for the feedback and welcome to the site. It is always great to hear from boaters who are using it on an everyday basis rather than just testing It out.

      The comment above by Eugene from iSailor says that the Android version is in the works and will be out by the end of the year or early 2015.

      Thanks for your comments and please share the link to my blog with all your sailing friends. Spread the word to help support the site. Become a follower to keep up with all the latest posts.

  54. Hi, when in the fifties as I am, I need reading glasses to see that incredible small characters showing depth and so on. This information is saved on it's own layer in vector charts I understand. Why isn't it possible to change the character size as a user?

    Regards
    Lars A.

  55. Hello Lars, noted - I will discuss with the team. Meanwhile please try a workaround - change system font size in iOS accessibility settings, this shall also affect spot soundings text size. Best regards, Eugene

  56. I have been trying to connect my Xgps150A with iSailor nav software since 2 days ago but has not been succesful till today. The problem with iSailor is that its did not allow gps data transmitted from a bluetooth gps transmitter to connect to it software.

    Appreciate if Transas could rectify this so that iSailor users using bluetooth gps can have more option in chosing gps device that they want to use to get their position more accurately.
