Needs a few minor improvements but still the best in my opinion

Please allow users to set waypoint names that show as something other than WP0001 and etc. I can put in a description but the waypoint names are meaningless.

Terrible, dated, hard to use

This app looks like it hasn’t been updated since iOS 5. It doesn’t even support retina screens. The map is unusable, it never renders a high definition version like in the screenshots and you can’t zoom in close enough to make it useful for boating. Maybe this is helpful for crossing the Atlantic but for general coastal boating this is completely useless. LOOK ELSEWHERE.

The Good and the Bad

I’ve been using the Navx software for over a year along with another navigation app. While I would agree that the app has some serious flaws, after reading many of the reviews I think that some users misunderstand the app. There are some notable features here. Here are the highlights as I see them: - Can display most ships instruments and gage readings on the iPad - probably more than any other iPad program (hardware required). - Can allow an iPad to be your plotter, including controlling the autopilot on a route that you create. This is a huge feature considering the cost of a traditional plotter! - Can overlay ships AIS on the map (with ships WiFi). This can be a money saver as well! - If available can use the ships GPS for improved accuracy. - Wide choice of worldwide charts available for purchase. - Very good support available including youtube how to videos as well as email. Where the app is lacking: - Instrument display is not so easy to read as is displayed on a small strip in same size monochrome font. Though each item can be turned off if desired, this is fatiguing after a couple hours. - Navionics charts are much more expensive here than at the competition with the same name, who apparently owns the rights to the charts. - Route creation is not very intuitive and tedious, even when using the shortcuts shown on the YouTube video. I have sent in suggestions for improvements in the usability of the app but for whatever reason the developers have chosen not to make the changes that could make this app exceptional.

Ugly and limited

I wish I hadn’t wasted my money. If you are already a subscriber maybe it’s worth it, but if you are not don’t bother. The app is very, very limited without that subscription and it’s poorly designed.

Maybe it’ll work if you want to circumnavigated the globe. Smaller lakes, ice fishing, bass, walleye - get something else. Should’ve stuck with navionics

Not user friendly

The old navionics was far easier and better in my opinion. You could just tap and draw a line between waypoints and get all the information you needed. This app is so complicated just to do something simple like measure distance. It’s not at all intuitive and almost unusable.

INavX iPad

Terrible program for an iPad. Beware purchasing this app/subscription for Alaska/BC/Washington. Old Navionics worked great and very practical. Garmin altered the program so route planning is a 20 or 30 step process rather than a graphics based process. Very awkward and very impractical. The NOAA data base is now stored and used by individual chart and is not stitched together like Navionics. For Alaska, all you can do is pick the correct chart from a list of 350 charts. Unless you know the chart name from an adjacent chart, you have to hunt and guess. This is very awkward and not practical. I have not been able to download 50% of the Navionics data base, and 50% of BC. How frustrating and amateur. There are other oversights and failures! I can not recommend this app or subscription unless Garmin invests some serious effort to revamp the software and eliminate the bugs.

this app is such a rip off you buy it and it does not even give you sonar you have to pay an extra 20 dollars. All you get when you buy it is some cheesy maps that are horrible
