    • It would great to see coastal towns and landmarks marked up on the augmented reality

      I love the ability to see marinas via my phones camera, however it would be really helpful to see coastal towns and major landmarks...well it would settle a few arguments onboard anyway!

      • News/Events, Compass, Profile, Favourites & Settings need Tutorials

        There doesn't appear to be any help topics under some areas, e.g the compass; I'd like to know what the 'GPS' button does.

        • Shipping forecast 'Issue time' disappears too quickly

          Weather > Shipping Forecast > Shipping forecast Issue time disappears very quickly. Ideally this should always be on the top/bottom of the forecast.

          • Somewhere to store access codes for marinas

            I often forget the pontoon gate code at my home marina, I think it would be really useful if I had a place to store my codes in the App.

            • Make App take up the full screen on the iPhone5

              I have a new iPhone5 with the slightly longer screen, are you planning to make the App work in full screen mode for my phone?

              • More ideas for the reference section

                I'd like to see a few more nautical basics in the reference section (e.g beaufort). The COLREGS section is very useful and additional educational info would be useful for a relative newcomer to sailing like me,thanks.

                • Make Tides have its own icon on the home screen

                  Tides > I would suggest taking tides out of the Almanac and make it a top level item on its own.

                  • A Back to home menu on some of the Reference and Almanac Pages

                    Would it be possible to have a quick link back to the home page from every level of the menu? It's not a big deal but having to work back through each submenu takes a few extra keystrokes.

                    • Sounds should have the actual noises when pressed

                      In the Sounds section part of the rules of the road, it would be really great if when you tapped the speaker icon the noise such as the bells or horns actually sounded.

                      • I like the flags/codes section but would like to see more

                        It would be very handy if you could add a few more flags such as racing signals and famous sailing club burgees to this section.

                        • I would prefer it if I could zoom all the way out on marina map

                          On my iPhone the map seems to snap back to a smaller zoom level when I'm searching for marinas, I would like to be able to zoom around multiple countries.

                          • I couldn't seem to find a way to see further knots past the first one...

                            Tapping the side of the screen didn't show the next knot nor did tapping the circles at the bottom. Any ideas?

                              Is there any way I could be able to switch off the automatic weather pop up? As when I'm sailing for the whole day I don't need to see the overall summary of weather every time I want to check an item.

                                  I wasn't sure how to set the compass to night mode and when I did the blue bar with white text was still present, which would still affect night vision.

                                    • Rename 'Navigation News' to 'Notices to Mariners' and only show info that is of interest to me

                                      Navigation News - is in fact Notices to Mariners - the ability to specify which areas you're interested in would be useful.

                                      • Incorrect round turn and two half hitches knot

                                        The round turn and two half hitches is wrong, the hitches should not look neat, but should both go the same way.

                                        • Using iPad zoom view causes some text on the Colregs page to be lost
