As I said, used to! The programmers of the app obviously aren’t boaters. I’d invite them to come ride along on my 22 foot Baja traveling at 62 mph, crashing into the waves and just TRY to fight with this piece of JUNK on an iPhone XS Max. The buttons are way too small to press. The freaking “track UP” won’t stay put, but randomly switches to “North Up”. On a 20 mile trip I had to continuously keep setting it for TRACK UP. It just wouldn’t stay as I wanted it. Why can’t it be set to LOCK track up? I also have to break our trip up into multiple segments because it won’t plan the entire trip at once. Please, PLEASE, PLEASE get this thing useable. If y’all don’t have a clue of how to improve the app, take a good look at the Foreflight app group. They continuously improved that app by listening to the actual users.
I used this app during the free trial. It’s fine for basic navigation. One of the reasons I upgraded was for the dock to dock auto routing. A new feature they promoted heavily. It would be a fantastic feature IF IT WORKED which it doesn’t. I followed the instructions exactly and no luck. The route still creates a straight line over land. An email to support resulted in an auto generated response telling me to download maps and have the latest version of the app. All of which I made sure I did before reaching out So I wasted my money on a feature that doesn’t work and a company that doesn’t respond .
Year 4 of using app. First 3 were okay 4th year app has gotten worst, 9 out of 10 times wind speed does not appear on app only horizontal lines. Now I have to question the other information when your life is on the water.
We have used Navionics for 6 round trips on the ICW. We have used Navionics in Canada and the Bahamas. The charts are excellent and the Sonar Charts offer more detail and better accuracy than NOAA or Canadian Hydrographic Service! autoroute has many uses. The tide and current displays are much easier to use than in any other app we have used. All this is device resident, so you only need internet access to update you charts. This can be done easily and quickly over a cell phone connection. This app also will connect over the internet to the sea buoys for real time wind and wave conditions. No other navigation app has near the functionality and power as this one.
Routing is more reliable than the latest Garmin update.
Auto route worked great. I actually didn’t expect it. The cost is fair. I’ve paid hundreds for a boat gps that isn’t as good as this. So-so far so good.
I recently moved to a lake and don’t do a lot of traveling fishing or boating. Cost is too high for just wanting access to one lake or a very small portion. It’s all or nothing so I guess I uninstall and choose nothing. Update: Developer reached out and didn’t say anything specific other than apologize. I don’t know how the cost justifies the entire USA unless you fish or boat for a living. Cut the cost in half and give me an option to buy per state and I would consider this app but this feels like a cable TV subscription.
I paid the money for the app because I could use it without giving them my information. Then I run an update and I can no longer use the app without giving them my information. I’m furious!!
I bought the maps 6 months ago and now when I open the app it doesn’t recognize me and acts like I need to buy them again. After searching the developers website I could not find a place to contact for help with the account. Very frustrating. It’s a great product when it works.
What is the one thing you need from a chart but can’t get from just sitting in your boat ? WATER DEPTH. So, I bought the $15 subscription and kept this as a digital plan B when out on the water. When I tried to use it on the water (not an ideal reading environment ) I had to stop the boat and zoom in and out so the water depth was shown in a font bigger than 1cm. When zooming, the iPhone will digitally zoom and increase the depth markings to a readable size. Then the app redraws the map at a higher magnification and dutifully represents depth in the smallest font possible. I could not see depth on a iPhone plus. Why can’t this be set as a user option???? By the way, the finger pinch is generally interpreted as a “move to a location 100 miles from here...”. This app is too mature to suffer from basic user interface problems like this. Can’t the developer just clone a fishfinder/gps user interface? Garmin has one, and Garmin owns Navionics. Why sell an app that sports a half-baked user interface? But if you are sitting in a dark room with reading glasses, have plenty of patience, and perfect the pinch maneuver, you can scope out some new waterways with this app. Better yet, use the web browser interface for free and on a HUGE monitor you will be able to see depths. And you will avoid pinch vs move user interface confusion.
