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.

  • Great app, love the subscription model

    By walrusmcd
    I have been using this app for 2 years now. Great app ! Some folks have commented on that subscription as a problem, but i love it! other sailing apps charge over 80$ for their charts. With iSailor you can get those same charts for 2$ a year. Let me see.... 80$ in app purchase, vs 2$ a year in app purchase. I love the 2$$. Thank you iSailor !!
  • Don’t bother

    By Nope$
    New owners are rent seeking. I had the old app which worked perfectly. Haven’t updated to the new subscription based app and now it no longer shows my position on the chart. Deleted the app and moved on to a better product.
  • Pesimo Servicio

    By R'bicrual
    Navegue Durante años con él isailor gratis, intente mejorar y me suscribí al AIS PAGANDO esta suscripción, desde ese momento desapareció de mi iPad el icono del buque y no puedo navegar , he enviado solicitudes para solucionar el problema y nunca me responden, el GPS interno dejó de funcionar , definitivamente no puedo hacer nada , pésimo servicio y me robaron el dinero
  • High cost to unlock features make this a professional’s tool

    By Chris 423
    Has a lot of good features but must be unlocked by purchasing. Just to get navigation, wind, and AIS from my own sensors costs $88.91. The cost of the annual chart subscriptions is on top of this. Not sure why Wartsila bothers with the App Store.
  • Loyal Customer no more

    By Super343
    Customer for years, good ap good value but no more. Please reconsider....all my map payments gone? Send all my hard earned cash back, total extortion.
  • Very Disappointing Subscription Model.

    By Zanclod
    Used to like the App. Not anymore. A lot of legalese to hide the provision of less service. Ratings show more dissatisfaction among remaining users.
  • Best nav app out there

    By todd.h
    Compared to a standard horizon chartplotter and inavx (which I used to use), iSailor is a dream. My favorite way to navigate by far! I can pan and zoom so quickly I feel that in tight nav situations it's a significant safety feature. Compare this to inavx or the chartplotter where panning and zooming are slow and cumbersome and take your attention away from operating the boat.
  • Very disappointed.

    Météo I paid for that. Does not work.
  • Amazing app

    By A Storm Fan
    Used this app as primary navigation on a 1,000 mile sailing delivery through the Caribbean. Amazing accuracy!!!!
  • Missing tides

    By Capt'n Paul
    Nice app, haven’t tried integration with AIS. A few suggestions for improvement: 1. tides (tidal data) 2. Weather - couldn’t figure out why it’s not displayed on a chart 3. Watch app - doesn’t seem to work at this time
