Back up charting app C-MAP Embark

Post by PeterM » 09 Oct 2018, 15:21

In my browsing I came across C-MAP embark which seems to be a free charting app for inshore that I've downloaded to my phone.

Appears to give half decent back up charting for phones etc if it all goes wrong

Anyone else use this , seen it or want to use it ?

I've used it on a trip up the Tay in the F-Rib, was pretty accurate and gave me a clear view of the deeper water channels to avoid running aground - quite easy to do if you ignore channel markers - which in places are a long way between them, you don't need to be far off line to hit a mud or sand bar.
