This app is pretty good. The merging of all the apps that the developer is doing might be confusing to past users, but has not effected the quality of the app itself.
The app made me subscribe again. It said my free trail was up, but I never even used the free trial, I bought it immediately and now it’s telling me I have to subscribe again.
Signed in with my current subscription. App confirmed I was signed in but would not function after trail period. Uninstalled and reinstalled twice with no joy. I’m not paying again. I still have 139 days on current subscription.
Wonderful app! You can’t beat the price and accuracy of the charts. We plan to use this app to circumnavigate over the next two years. East coast of USA, Bahamas, and Panama have all been wonderful and accurate so far. I am able to install the app on backup cellular data iPads in lifeproof cases. We use this app as our chart plotter. One of the bugs we have noticed seems to relate to low internet speed. If the app is launched when the device has *barely* one bar of cellular or WiFi internet connection, the app will hang. Force quitting and relaunching the app does not help, but turning off cell data for the app or disconnecting from WiFi does allow the app to launch. Please build in some error checking for low/unusable internet (example: when sailing out of harbor). Another feature we would like to have would be to delete downloaded maps (we would like to delete the US maps to free up space) -without having to delete and reinstall the app. Overall great app and a 5 star app if the bugs are fixed! Thank you!
This Navionics product may be amazing, but since the developers switched to Boating and Marina, the charts will not stay loaded on my IPad. I have been asked by the APP to purchase a subscription three times now, all within the last six months. I have paid all three times but the APP continues to ask for a subscription and deletes the downloaded information in the process! We are almost full time cruisers and need reliable charting software. This product does not work right. Developers should be more clear on payments. Is the subscription monthly?
Used this app for a while as my primary back up to my lowrance. I was on the water when I noticed that my map was no longer available, and I would not have access to my local map. The frustrating part is that I was out on the water when this happened, and downloading the map was not an option given my cellular data restrictions. The 9.99 or whatever it is, is not the issue. My issue is that i had no idea about this change. I’m very annoyed with how navionics pigeon holed me. Not cool. If you’re goal was to force people to buy the map, rather than allow a free region download...THEN CHARGE UP FRONT.
I paid for the previous app in full. Now I have a 15 day TRIAL and will have to pay again. Developer GREED. It doesn’t pay to piss off your customers and double dip. Hey developer, Now this is where you paste your canned response as you did with all the other 1 star reviews.
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.
