Awful.

1
If I could give zero stars I would. The description of the app prior to purchasing is so misleading. I work as a commercial waterman and was looking for a Chart plotter to have on my phone, and this was a complete waste of $4.99. Nothing that was described prior to purchasing is available unless you pay hundreds of dollars. I would not recommend this app to my worst enemy. Completely Awful.

Just terrible.

The least intuitive of any navigation app I have ever used. Forces you to select one chart at a time. And when you get to the edge of that map it just stops. You have to know which map to select next from a list of maps. Like I was using a stack of paper maps. Clunky and archaic. Incredibly frustrating to use. Scrolling along should automatically take you from map to map. Zooming in and out should not require me to select a map. The app has no smarts. For folks that have memorized all the charts I’m sure this is just great. But for me, it is unusable.

Better than my boat’s gps

My son-in-law brought his I-phone as we were headed west of Tampa Bay for a fishing trip. Your great system marched bottom formations with incredibly excellent accuracy. I became a subscriber I am really pleased with the performance. WOW !

The best chart plotter on the market

iNavX is the best chart plotter available. I’ve used it for years now and have it with me every time I step aboard. It’s mobile, it’s digital, it’s in my pocket all times. Most importantly it is easy to use, has all the charts I need for all over the world, and really handy features like weather and AIS.

Good: hi-rez maps. Bad: user interface

3
I like how I can download free hi-rez maps without a subscription. What I can’t deal with is the user interface. It’s difficult to download maps, switch between maps, and I don’t know why the + and - symbols on a map attempt to do things other than zoom in/out, which is pretty much a standard convention for map apps. I prefer the UI of Navionics app. It’s way more intuitive.

Old bugs never fixed

2
In general, this is a pretty good app, but the evidence is that the author is not interested in fixing bugs. I have reported 2 bugs over 2 years ago with no results. First, exporting routes via email results in an invalid .gpx file. Specifically, the latitude specification sometimes does not contain the decimal point. Several times I have provided examples of the invalid files. As a software engineer, I know this should be easy to identify and fix. After more than 2 years, it has not. Second, iNavX often gets confused about what NOAA charts are available for the San Francisco Bay. NOAA has replaced some of the old charts. When the complete set of NOAA raster charts is downloaded for the West Coast, the names of replaced charts are still displayed, but it appears that they are not currently downloaded. When iNavX zooms in/out on the area that the deleted chart used to cover, it gets very confused and locks up. Again, I reported this about 2 years ago. It is still happening. It’s too bad. Fixing a few problems would make this an excellent application.

Not worth it

2
It’s nice that you can interface multiple apps in one place, but after you pay $80 here or $30 here. The one issue, however, is that they offer Navionics for 29.99, but I can literally subscribe through Navionics for $21.99 to have US/Canada. I bit of a poacher for customers where they can’t match Navionics’ own price and it’s for this reason, I deleted this app and will continue my traditional “inconvenient” way of navigating through multiple apps
