Had the old Navionics app and it was great until they no longer updated it. I had to download the new version of the app and now it’s making me pay to subscribe for everything again. I always loved the old app but I’m not going to pay again just because they decided to make a new app.
I have used this app for almost 2 years now and I really like it and it is very accurate. Too bad you have to pay for it
When I purchased for first time. They asked me to pay for subscription which charge me annually $21.99 without realized that I don’t really need Canada. I only need USA which they didn’t want to show its cost $14.99 which I could pay $14.99 instead $21.99. I gave ONE star for dishonest method to make you pay more than you really need.
Used to use this app a ton and then they came out with a new version. So I already paid for the old version (as many of you did) and find out you have to pay for depth and other things on the new version. Why should I “subscribe” and pay more for something I can just google and screenshot?
Following the latest IOS iPad update, I cannot update charts or synch. The options are not available; in fact, all services such as tracks, map downloads, etc., are ‘grayed-out’ and not responding. Please advise and fix!
It would be very helpful to be able to load onto macOS 11 now that it is capable of running these apps. Trip planning and viewing them out on a large screen would be a great option.
It’s says i have 55 days left on subscription and it’s not working. Cannot view any maps.
The data in Navionics is great for fishing and the auto routing feature is perfect for short trips or those navigating long distances in the open ocean. Unfortunately, for anyone looking to cruise long distances in the ICW or on rivers is in for a surprise. This product seems to have an arbitrary cap on the number of Route waypoints. This cap renders the app all but useless for planning long inshore voyages because it will just error out and not finish the route. I’m trying to plot a route to complete the Great Loop and the aforementioned limitation prevents me from charting more than a couple dozen miles at a time on a 6600+ mile cruise.
Bad experience was able to see all the wreaks on this app only once but all my friends have this app and are able to see the wreaks without paying $28.00 of subscription. Now this app is use less I can’t see the wreaks without paying $28.00
I have used this app for many years but recently I’ve observed my trolling speed (around 2.5 mph) is not detected. Instead the speed shows as 0.0 until I go near 5mph. I have reproduced on iPhone Xs and 12 —both on latest iOS update. Anyone else seen this issue?
