Using the app is often problematic it can navigate incorrectly among other things. Strong WiFi is a must which isn’t possible out at sea even accessing satellite signal
The app is now basically useless other then checking contours of the body of water your fishing. Your location doesn’t update so when you are relying on this app to get you out to the spot you marked you’re out of luck unless it magically starts working. Even then the spot is off compared to your true location.
This used to be a huge advantage to own. But once Garmin took over they simply destroyed this app. Tides are no longer usable displaying random times that are not the ebb or flood and show maybe 2 or 3 days ahead of time. Such a shame. As a full time capt I was constantly using this to plan my trips. Not anymore.
The new version will not load on my iPad.
My original review was negative. It was an Apple induced problem that had nothing to do with Navionics. I just want a backup on my phone and don’t need fancy route planning. I have a very good Garmin for my normal use. I believe problem solved.
Guess I see why Navionics only gets 3 stars, they can’t answer their phone, like everyone else-use our website and do it yourself, don’t bother us ! They need to call Garmin, where someone actually answers the phone AND has knowledge!!!
Keep getting an error message that I do not have enough storage space to download charts. I have over 30gb of space. I can download the entire Caribbean basin on INavX.
Haven’t used the app for a while. Started it last night. It just shows a blue screen with a white circle in the middle with the wording “Loading”. That’s it. Never loads. Is this a serious app or just a joke?
This app is terrible. All I want is an app that will open and will tell me where I am and what the depth is. It constantly has you changing to different versions and updating and half the time it doesn’t work at all. Don’t waste your money.
I used the app for years but now they whole thing is blocked by a paywall for each minor function. Not this app is trash. Dnt buy it.
