Best results:
The accuracy of this speedometer is subject to the accuracy of the GPS
on your iPhone. Our GPS accuracy indicator helps you quickly see when
you're getting a good signal when the green light is on. The following
general rules will help you quickly get a good GPS signal:

• keep the unit in the line of sight of the sky
• try to stay close to the same position for a few moments
while the device gets a GPS lock
• even with a good GPS signal reading, the unit may take a
little bit of time on startup to get a GPS lock on especially when you
are moving fast

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

The one and only Tide app that you've been waiting for iPad and iPhone. Use TideTrac daily for info on tides, Moon and the Sun. It downloads your tide data and stores them locally for later offline use. Fast, accurate and easy to use. Note - TideTrac supports coastal US Stations only.

Not only does TideTrac tell you when a high tide and low tide event occur on a given day, it is the only app that can tell you the days of a month when the tides are highest or lowest in one quick glance with a graphical visualization.

Swipe the graph to the right and view a four day preview of tide graphs. Add multiple tide stations to your favorites list and switch between them easily. Any station marked as a favorite will have their complete tide table downloaded automatically for the entire current year and will be available for offline viewing. Great for taking the phone with you and lookup tide data at anytime even when you don't have internet connectivity.

On the first launch, TideTrac will automatically select the nearest station closest from your current location. But if you need to pick a different tide station, pick one easily from browsing the map visually!

Advanced feature - TideTrac lets you lookup tides by hour of day (currently available on the iPad version only). For example, if you are interested in visiting the beach at 7 am for a walk, TideTrac can tell you on what days the tide are lowest and highest at this hour. Plan your visits or travel using the easy lookup table.

TideTrac comes in a beautiful interface and also tells you the sunrise, sunset times, moonrise, moonset times.

Whether you are going sailing or just planning ideal times to hit the beach or interested in finding the best times for viewing tide pools or finding the best times for fishing, knowing the tide level at any given time and day becomes essential. TideTrac presents all of its data efficiently without over-complicating the user interface. It is extremely easy to use.

With the convenience of offline viewing, users can take TideTrac to remote locations and continue to view the tide predictions.

What is not included in TideTrac is information on currents and local weather. Before purchasing the app, please take a look at the list of supported tide stations from http://www.tidetrac.com/stations/

Features

+ Includes thousands of tide stations in United States (coastal US stations only).
+ View all tide stations plotted on a map for easy browsing and selection.
+ Add tide stations to 'favorites list' with one simple touch.
+ Offline viewing of tide events & tide graph enabled for all favorite stations.
+ Lookup tide predictions until 2021 (more will be added as available).
+ View high and low tides for the selected day.
+ View tide data for a whole month.
+ View highest tides of a month & lowest tides of a month.
+ View tide graph and using a time slider find the tide level for any time.
+ Quickly shift from month to month or move from day to day and watch the tide change.
+ Requires internet connection only the first time a tide station is selected.
+ View Sunrise, Sunset, Moonrise and Moonset times.
+ Accounts for daylight savings time and different timezones.
+ Includes a Moon calendar with different phases of the moon displayed.[iPad only]
+ Includes a tide look up table to lookup tides by hour of the day [iPad only]

DISCLAIMER - Tide data displayed in TideTrac are based upon astronomical tide predictions and does not take into account the effects of wind, storm, rain, freshwater runoff, floods and other meteorological events. The tide graph rendered uses the predicted high tide and low tide events of the day and the segments between these tide events are approximated. Do NOT use TideTrac for NAVIGATION purpose or any other purpose that may result in personal injury or property damage. Use it at your own risk.
