Does anyone know of a program that will predict tides either by using GPS coordinates or by clicking a location in OziExplorer.

G'day
I use a program called Fishing Log
I dunno about being exactly what you asked for but using the program I can load the tide charts for selected area of Australia and select by clicking on the desired location , this will be by area name
The supplier and program writer is
Ken Fox
he can be contacted at
kfox@ozemail.com.au
or 1800350045
cost last year $25.00 per year
I have no connection apart from having used the program for many years

Hi , when we are going away I just type( Google) in Tide times for South Aust ( or for you state) and then go to the place you want , they are listed for the year , in weekly pages and I then print off the weeks that I need and they seem pretty accurate,
Have been doing this for 5 years and cant fault it.
Cheers Des.

I have a tide programme that works all over the globe. every city in OZ as well. It is fairly accurate and works for me.
I think it was a freebee from somewhere. You can print out a day, a week or longer easy.
Let me know if you want it. 1.6 meg Zip file.

Michael, tides are calculated for official tide stations and its these the tidal programs display.
Tide by GPS coordinate would be nice but AFAIK its not reality at this stage. You have to interpolate times (& heights) from the nearest official tidal station. As you perhaps know, local tides can vary greatly if they are influenced by the topography of the coastline.

I have not yet seen a tide table in OziExplorer but then I did not look for one there. I get tide info of a free tide program or of the chart plotter in the boat.

Hi Michael,

Try this site

Its free software that you can download and I have been using it for several years and found it to be fairly accurate.
