Receive location coordinates from a variety of sources:
GPS directly from your iPhone or from iPad 3G/4G devices
This data is assisted by a mobile network connection for the initial location, but it does work independently and can lock onto to GPS satellites anywhere at sea.
These receivers are paired to the iPhone or iPad through Bluetooth and the GPS data is received by the Charts app.
There are significant iPhone and iPad battery advantages in using an external device as power drain from the GPS hardware in the iPhone or iPad is significant (five times that of the screen).
NMEA. The app is also compatible with location data received from an on-board GPS receiver on the NMEA bus.
