User Manual – Nearest Light


Nearest Light is an informational aid for boaters in U.S. waters that shows your current location and details on all nearby aids to navigation (buoys, lights, etc), including those affected by Local Notices to Mariners. This app downloads the weekly U.S. Coast Guard Light List and Local Notices to Mariners for your district, and then shows the aids within your Area of Interest.

Privacy Notice

Nearest Light does not request nor retain any personally identifiable information.  Your location, and your test location, is used to provide you with a localized map and location-based data (aids to navigation) from the U.S. Coast Guard Light List and Local Notices to Mariners.  No data is transmitted to the developer other than what Apple provides in crash data reports and app services.
