Active Captain Update

Many users have contacted us because there was some confusion with ActiveCaptain's announcement of support for them in version 2.2.0 of SEAiq. Their announcement incorrectly indicated that ActiveCaptain support would not be a premium feature (require a paid upgrade). In fact, ActiveCaptain requires a paid upgrade in version 2.2.0 of our apps. Update: With all the interest we have received about ActiveCaptain, we have decided to include ActiveCaptain for free in the next version of our apps, available sometime in the next month.

We are pleased to announce SEAiq version 2.2.  In addition to fixing all user reported issues, this version now supports the ActiveCaptain Interactive Cruising Guidebook (  You can download and display the entire ActiveCaptain worldwide database of marinas, anchorages, local knowledge, hazards, etc and access that data from SEAiq while offline.  The current version does not support submitting new entries/reviews within the SEAiq apps (this will be added in a future release), but you can visit the ActiveCaptain website to do that.
