One feature that would make this app amazing is the ability to save a track as a route! You can currently save a track but there is not any way to follow it once it is saved for a future trip!?
I’ve had multiple iPads and iPhones and you cannot do a crossing of any significant distance without this app glitching out on you many times. When it does, it doesn’t save your tracks. Only buy this app if you’re okay with it freezing up on you randomly. ***WOULD NOT REPURCHASE*** I am a full-time live aboard sailor. Just finished a 750 mile trek and this app ruined many memories I thought would auto save.
Several years ago this was the best. Now it does not stack up. It has not improved in 3 years. My biggest complaint is that I cannot use it on the intracoastal waterway on a leg of more than 20 miles. That makes it useless as a planning tool. It constantly throws a “too many points” error message on a leg of any length. I have a slow sailboat, but I still can make 40-60 miles in a day. This needs to be fixed or I will not renew. I received a relatively lame response and was send to a web address to learn than a route is limited to 200 points. I was told to break my day into multiple legs. That is not “dock to dock routing.” That is a pill. If you have ever seen their routes you can see that a route should be 2000 points, not 200. This should not be a difficult change for Navionics.
These maps look like they were copied from old DNR maps and many high def maps are highly inaccurate. They only have sonar imagery for 5 lakes in MN and it looks wrong or off in many areas, as well as streaky. If I’m paying for the information I want it to be legit. Stick with Humminbird and Lakemaster if you’re in MN.
This app is the best money I’ve spent on fishing outside of livescope. It updates constantly the contours are extremely accurate in my opinion. I love the depth shading aspect. The brush pile markers will get you close enough to find on side imager. Thank you Navionics for making an awesome user friendly product!
My app on both iPad and iPhone failed to update maps since July. Now I can not log in from the Apps first page on both iPad and iPhone after last log out. It repeated says “Connection failed”
App works great except for one thing. When I’m running Course Up, the words don’t rotate with the screen. So when I’m heading south, everything is upside down which is really distracting and frustrating. Yeh, I can read it, but I’d like to not have to think about it. It works fine on Android. What am I missing?
Honestly, this is a near perfect app! With one fix, it would be invaluable for safe boating! My family and I deeply appreciate the way it shows water depth accurately with many ways to personalize the system (examples: preferred units of measure and color coding). It has impressive features, including a way to have it adjust for when the water level is down any number of feet. There is only one problem: the default orientation is “North Up.” It causes major frustration and increases potential danger as it requires boat drivers to spend extra time staring at the app. We’ve tried unsuccessfully to set it for “Heads Up” orientation (so it matches the left/right of the boat’s reality). In Settings, we select “Heads Up” display, but it quickly returns to “North Up.” It’s a serious frustration and big disappointment. They should fix it to lock in the display orientation we select and/or change the default to the user-friendly “Heads Up.” Please!
Worst app charged me 30$ and I deleted it
Had been a loyal purchaser of Navionics. When the requirement that “I must create an account” arrived, I didn’t want to share my personal info with yet another company who will likely spam me. Now the app I paid for with real money and promoted to friends and clients stops working but I’m welcome to “buy it again”??? CROOKS
