  • Amazing App

    By Jill M 190
    We bought a new boat in Maryland and had to drive it home to the north shore of Long Island through waters we were completely unfamiliar with. The equipment on the boat was not functioning as hoped and this app came to the rescue. Our trip was plotted for us easily and the we found fuel docks with the app and navigated home easily and safely with no problems. Thank you Navionocs!!
  • Location Always On

    By smith.ando
    Great app, but doesn't have the option to only use my location when I'm using the app, so it kills my battery. Please fix this feature.
  • Location tracking reduces battery life

    By hamcap
    What is the purpose of requiring location services be on "always" or "never"? Collecting data I suspect. If that's not the case, allow users to limit access to location only when using the application for better battery life and privacy concerns. There is no reason to require location services be on all the time.
  • Inaccurate Topo Lines

    By FCLineman
    Got this app to help me isolate points and depth for ice fishing. I live in Colorado and our "lakes" are small granted, but to advertise as an accurate topographical map is an insult. I have verified by boat and depth finder the inaccuracies of the app for one lake I love to fish. This may be a better application where larger bodies of water are found, but not for Colorado. I rue the purchase.
  • Developers will strip features without notice.

    By Greggershhaha
    What you see today might not be what you see tomorrow. I used this app that I purchased to fish flats with the satellite overlay. Now they have made satellite a subscription service. What will they take away next?
  • No Customer Service

    By Usma92
    Purchased this app after purchasing the previous version because Navionics felt it was good treatment of their customers to make them buy the same app again instead of upgrading the original version. Then after buying this version which came equipped with satellite images, they have now taken that away and require the annual subscription to Navionics plus. This company treats its customers almost as bad as United Airlines.
  • Solid app minus a few things

    By Hotnts
    When the orientation switches to landscape the details (speed, heading, etc) disappear. Please fix this.
  • Great!

    By BigLoveMO
    I found the app to be ideal for USA Lakes!!! Super helpful for navigating new waters and knowing the typography of the lake you are fishing. For a $10 app I found it to be feature rich and very user friendly.
  • Bottomless Money Pit

    By Skipper TJ
    You buy the app, then buy the maps, and every update they take more and more features away and make them all subscription based only. Biggest waste of money in the entire App Store. 😡
  • Inaccurate

    By Jakemanges1111
    This app is horribly inaccurate, it tells me depths that are no where near the actual depths of the areas, on almost every lake I've ever looked at it on, save your money, this app is trash
