I had iNavx on my phone for a sailing trip. I tried using the app, but couldn’t get through the complexity and stuck with Navionics I had notifications enabled and just received an in-pho e notification, that was a prompt to purchase. IMO, this is an abuse of notifications to see me something, rather than provide navigation notifications. If iNavx can’t find the balance of desires and complexity, and will abuse notifications for sales, I don’t believe they have the right customer value focus
For me, electronic maps need to be iPhone/iPad friendly. I don’t need a duplication of paper maps. I need navigation aides and directions, etc. I don’t think this app hits any markers Inhave🤷♂️ it is just paper maps on the iPhone. Either I am too stupid to figure out how to use it or it is in-intuitive. To be real, what I want on my electronic device is a maritime version of google maps. Ie: 1- download app, need some maps. Okay, select charts, west coast, entire west coast. Select download, part way through informed that one of the maps is no longer available- process stops. Okay, download individual maps, ouch - that is painful. This process is untenable!!! 2- Zooming out requires you to name the map you want to zoom out too- Ug! I am definitely not the target audience. I have a book and a chart folder for my charts. I am looking for the next level of navigation not ancient mariners charts. If someone wanted to convince me otherwise I would love to see why this app is otherwise useful.
The app itself has been there for more then a decade an I used it then. The interface remains clunky and dated. If you try to research remote locations this thing jumps back to your current location.
I love that I can use this software on my iPad. I have used it many times with great results and the anchor watch function works fine. My only issue lately is that I could not update my BVI chart package as they no longer carry BA BVI charts.
I downloaded the app based on the good reviews. I live in Brazil and there is no chart of South America available for download. The charts available are only for American users, making the app totally useless for me. So, I have a question: if the app is designed only for American users, why do you make it available for the rest of the world?
I’ve tried to export the tracks many times but they are readable by garmin The gpx format is one that allows exchange between programs No answer from tech support Can anyone help? Thanks
The waypoint and route planning could use some improvement but otherwise a pretty good software.
I want a refund. I paid for this but can’t reset my password. I ALSO PAID FOR THE MAC VERSION. TGAT WAS DISCONTINUED AND I HAD TO PAY FOR IT AGAIN. I URINATE ON THESE CHEATERS. I AN NOT PAYING FOR THIS IPAD VERSION AGAIN.
This app is a joke. Downloaded and opened to location. Couldn’t zoom in below about 50 miles. Searched maps. Oh wait, I can. Buy the maps for my region for only $159! Now why would I pay $159 to buy maps when I can’t even zoom down to see the area? Will not use and certainly don’t recommend.
I was using the app with the noaa data for many years. very clunky with zoom in and out. Bought the USA maps upgrade and wow! Just got two more stars. Works like it should. App is complicated, lots of stuff, but way easier to use than handheld gps devices.
