So I have two B&G Zeus onboard. I try to log into Embark and the Zeus says there has been a problem signing to your account. So I log into my iPad Pro. No problem. I log out. I try to log in. It says too many attempts. Wait 10 minutes! I log in via magic link on my MacBook Air. I change my pass. I log out. I try with my new pass, it says wait 10 minutes, too many attempts! I get the security idea of the 10 minute hold and I know you were unsuccessfully trying to be secure but if you already let me log in vía magic link and reset the pass then the additional 10 minute hold is not too smart. So here I am, logged out on iPad, logged out on iPhone, and logged out on 2 Zeus devices on my boat. Congratulations, Navico. **** A few days later, Navico contacted me with a workaround. It still involves waiting 10 minutes. I am now logged in. Raising from 1 star to 3 star until Navico gets around fixing the 10 minute timeout that exists even after changing password or logging in via MagicLink.
This app is great except it needs Auto Route like other Nav programs Was told it’s coming.
My family and I were at a fish house down near port Mansfield on the inner coastal. The GPS on our boat malfunctioned when we were out there. This fog rolled into the area after dark and stayed. I frantically searched the App Store to find a boat navigating app because our guide had no way to navigate us back— you could not see the markers. I downloaded this from the middle of the ocean at 12am in my iPhone and used it to guide me back all the way to south padre island with 50 feet of visibility. It worked great and kept us right in the middle of the channel. My children were with a babysitter back in South Padre. There is no way I would have made it back without this app. I would give it 10 stars if I could . 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👌🏼👌🏼
Easy to plot a cruse with waypoints
The app requires that you disclose/create a Facebook ID and password or create an account to use or view any app functionality. Very sketchy.
Cannot find way to control clutter. Tried all options I could find. I get close to any marina and it shows hundreds of black circles for the pilings and I can’t see anything else.
Now in the email option for logging in worked for me. Thank you for fixing this. But why require people who haven’t used the app in a while to go through this? With our boats hauled now many of us don’t look at nautical charts.
This app will give you all the info needed to map and figure out the depths of lakes. Fisherman’s necessity.
The map is extremely inaccurate. I have reached out and got the generic “we’re sorry” response.
A helpful app with lots of potential to become even better.
