Was not made clear that you can only download lakes you own for a year.
App was working better after the latest update but now it is ridiculously slow when trying to view charts. Constantly freezes when zooming in / out to the point it’s un-useable. Hummingbird makes great units / maps but they seem to struggle in the software department. This app has had major issues since it was released and no sign of improvement. Also performing the software updates they release for their units is a 50/50 chance of you having to return the unit because of the update. They really need to start paying attention to these complaints before Garmin completely shuts them out.
Could be a great app but will not sync with chart select. This is apparently a known issues with humminbird they say they are working on fix but no fix date is given. Should not be charging for maps until fix.
The maps expire after a year and then can’t be restored without purchasing again.
I was really hoping that Humminbird would have an alternative to loading updates and maps directly on my 3 units from my phone instead of SD cards. However, every time I try to do what should be simple, straightforward functions - connect to units, update software, upload a ChartSelect map - something goes wrong or it just doesn’t let me do it. I have given up on this app.
This entire system between Fishsmart and Chartselect is garbage. I purchase maps on the app and then I cant download them. I have an account set up in Chartselect, it only lets me sign in via the Fishsmart app; cannot save as a bookmark and access, have to go through the app. It doesn’t recognize my email. Customer service has zero understanding of the scope of complications. This thing is an absolute dud!
Purchased a map of a reservoir near me, charge went through and I received the Apple receipt, but went back to the app and the map doesn’t show the download icon. It wants me to buy it again. Got the app because I just bought a Helix 10. Very disappointing. Refund???
I’m wondering if there are plans for adding lake of the woods (Minnesota) to the available list? Appreciate the info. Matt
Slowest and most expensive lake map app that I have ever used. Takes so long for the maps to load that I had to switch to my much cheaper navionics app to get set up before prime time. Yes I have full service. As of now I’m kind of disappointed that I bought maps..
I’ve bought several maps and now they are gone.
