I’ve used on my Vagabond 47 and my 15 ft Sea-Doo Sportster
when I started sailing in 1990, we had paper charts, dividers and pencils. That and a compass got me to where I was going. Nowadays, with GPS and the wonderful application NavX has made of electronic charts, I know exactly where it am at a glance. Miraculous! Tom Bowen
I bought a new iPad for an update. All my charts got transferred except the Navionics charts. I’ve contacted the developer more than a week ago and yet to hear from them. So, how do I get my Navionics charts back? Please let me know how to do this soon. I go back to Panama in a month where the WiFi is slow and data transfer difficult.
Very frustrating to use and navigate. Maybe I’m missing something but haven’t been able to use it and I’m pretty tech savvy. Waste of money
For $4.99 I should not complain. But, no Track Up???I mean, c'mon, how difficult is that to implement? Also I lose the chart sometimes and have to redownload. I fear that will happen on the fly when I meed the chart and do not have internet access on the water. So the $4.99 is a waste if I can't rely on it. For now though, it's worked well for coastal and bay cruising to keep me safe from shallows and obstructions. Really dislike North Up only, but I can live with that and hoping they'll come to their senses with a fix.
Maybe this wasn’t designed to use with a cell phone. It sure doesn’t work well with my 7X. I went to the compass and never did get out of it. Also, the charts aren’t near as good as the last navigational app that I had. Costs more but is well worth it. I won’t mention the name so you won’t think I’m hawking it. This one needs a lot of work.
I am still learning. But It’s Terrific!!!!!
Just AWFUL! A waste of money. No value whatsoever. Save your money and skip this ripoff.
I took my small craft out on the South Channel of the Straits of Mackinac for the first time last week. I was able to plot waypoints and get a heading within minutes. Our party traveled to Mackinac Island, Cheboygan and Bois Blanc Islands all week without a hiccup. We even navigated safely back to our port after the fireworks in a near moonless evening. Best $4.99 I've ever spent! This app, coupled with a handheld marine transceiver allowed me to boat in the Great Lakes with a 19' bow rider!
