I’ve had this app for a few years and had made a “one-time purchase” of $14.99 only to find out today opening the app that was blank that I had to download an update. After the update I was then told that I had to renew my annual subscription! So much for this app. There is no way you’re worth it. I’ll stick to my Lowrance.
I am very glad that Active Captain was added and it is also nice to have community edits as a combination. One thing I really do miss is that I cannot edit ActiveCaptain without going to a clunky buggy website. Please add in app activecaptain editing! (Not a browser)
I purchased this app and although I’m no computer guru, I thought it would always work!! I was able to see contour lines so I knew where the drop offs were. Now I have to buy new charts? Forget it.
I used this app last year and it was almost spot on in the areas I fish. This year it’s been way off more times then it’s been right. App said I was in 6fow when I was in 22 Fow and the sonar icon on the lake even said 22 fow but the TOPO showed otherwise. Regretting paying for this app this year.
My subscription won’t renew so I sent an email asking why it wouldn’t renew and they gave me a number that was in the ten thousands and said you case number is *****. And will be addressed in that order. I use this app frequently and I got the email two months ago and still no response.
The new upgraded version of this app does not work properly. Automatic routing has bugs and tech-support is not willing to knowledge them.
Third year of using the App, it’s great for at a glance planning. Maybe some weather and a little helpful on routing. Just updated to the latest because the location specific apps are being sun-setted. The charts are ok, sometimes better than others sometimes worse. Have anchored on land according to charts in the southern San Blas at times for example. The biggest problem that hasn’t been addressed in the last 3 years is the initial chart down load. You pay for a region or chart then are forced to down load in pieces or squares. That works fine on fast connections. As a world traveler, a download all button even if it downloaded the same pieces would save hours and hours pinching and “requesting download” of pieces of the region. After every piece you have to re-zoom and go find the boundaries of what has already been downloaded. Downloading the pacific charts is going to take a few days of perseverance at the local watering hole. Ugh. It’s fine to have the selective download, but ALSO include a “gimme what I paid for” (ALL) option as well. That will run without having to have the app open and babysat the entire time. For comparison I use C-Map, Garmin and all kinds of public charts in OpenCpn and my “eyes” as most electronic charts are off at one time or another. 15,000 miles from Atlantic, Caribbean, to southern Chile, Pacific is next.
Stay away and do not waste your money. Do not get scammed. There are better nautical charting values available for the iPad. I spent a lot of money for both the USA/Canada and the Caribbean/South America apps. They were very, very expensive for apps but included lifetime chart updates. Now I find out that Navionics has completely destroyed my investment in these apps and forced me to go to a subscription service, with absolutely no consideration for my previous investment. This is extremely aggravating, and the very worst of business practices. All they are doing is gouging their customers for more money. This is not only unacceptable, but borders on fraud. The only reason they get one star, is you can’t select less.
Now you sent me an update that doesn’t work do I have to pay for The update your app keeps sending me to restore purchase and then won’t recognize my email
Sold as a one time fee which was pretty hefty. Now they want monthly revenue. You should have honored your original commitment. .
