Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Ship Finder and Ship Finder HD?
Ship Finder 2 is an enhanced iPad version of Ship Finder - our original iPhone App. Ship Finder HD is built on a whole new technology platform and includes a global map and search capabilities.
Why has the data feed for my area stopped working?
Sometimes feeds are turned off or not available. pinkfroot have no control over the internet feeds used by the application. (Where possible we use feeds from more than one source).
Can I use Ship Finder HD for navigational purposes?
Definitely not. Like all AIS internet feeds Ship Finder HD must not be used for navigational purposes.
Do I need to physically be in a chosen location to see the ship data?
No, you can view the ship data regardless of your physical location and can switch between the feeds we have included.
Why do I get the odd spurious image?
We use Google image search so returned data cannot be guaranteed.
