  • Spent $$$ - stopped updating & changed program names

    I purchased the Western US version years ago before I had an iPad. At the time, it was among the more expensive apps. It looked cool and I was excited to try it out boating. I was disappointed after discovering that the iPHONE SCREEN WAY TOO SMALL for practical use of the app. Additionally, the app also crawled when changing location and zooming in and out. *Those considering the iPhone version should keep this in mind.* I thought the program had great potential and assumed that updates would not be an issue for the price I paid, so I figured I would use it down the road when I had an iPad. (Some time passed where I also had intervening health issues that prevented me from boating.) After the recent iOS 11 update, I was dismayed to discover the pricey app no longer worked. It appeared in the list of apps showing it needed an update but there was NO LINK in the App store. After digging some more, I noticed that Navionics had cleverly changed the app names and introduced a new pricing structure. Apparently, they changed the program years ago. Strange. I don’t recall receiving any notices that a change was being considered at the time of purchase, nor at the time the products were renamed, nor before the loss of functionality. It also seems kinda fishy that they didn’t keep the old name up in the App store with an explanation after the functionality was cut off or offer pre-existing users a special deal. It appears they changed the graphics so the iPhone version looks terrible on the iPad and you have no choice but to pay alot more for the iPhone version. Given it is just depth lines, markers and such, I don’t see why they couldn’t design a scale the app like so many other developers have done. The bottom line is I got burned for foolishly trusting them and I caution others to think twice before shelling out money to a developer that has ditched previous users. Never know when they are going to take advantage of an iOS update to change the app design to force you to buy another full priced version.
  • Works well, but there’s a catch

    I like the app itself, however, when I bought a new phone it wants to charge me, again for full use for what I’ve paid for already. Not happy.
  • Night vision?

    I tried using your app on the MR340 kayak race in August. I actually emailed your sales dept. in July with questions but never got a response. It was handy to be able to find the current and pace and landmarks/obstructions. The challenging parts were: it was super hard to see the course in the glare of daylight because the line was so small and there was no way to adjust it, at night there’s no night mode to change the colors and save your night vision, when trying to set waypoints on the fly it picked up way to many on shore locations that weren’t even in the same area when I was looking for the next boat ramp checkpoint. The only auto-route I got to work was for the very last leg of the race. There’s an an Android app that does has all of these features and more but I only had an iPhone available. Check out mr340propaddler on the google play App Store.
  • Give me the old Navionics back

    I use the old iOS Navionics US Central to deliver a yacht from Chattanooga to Detroit as well as in the bayous of Louisiana and it worked great. Then Navionics quit supporting it to make people purchase this new app but it does not work. The app can't decide direction of travel or speed of travel. I have deleted and reinstalled it as well as put it on a second phone (iPhone 6 then 6s) it is still worthwhile.
  • They don't deserve that star.

    I bought this app, I used it for a little over a month then needed to upgrade my phone. I get a new phone, same phone and plan but have issues. They no longer support the phone, They tell me I have to wait for the update. I get another phone and download it and they have no record of my previous purchase, so I send them a copy of the receipt, then they said it was that I have an I phone, (I also have an android) then they said I can't use the app because it's no longer supported. Bad app, with much worse people. (I have the android phone I purchased the app on, I still have my Google accounts. At every interaction I was handed an additional excuse. First it was that they had no record of my purchase, so I supplied the receipt. Then they said it was not useable with this device, so I explained I still had the original device. Then they said they were no longer offering that app for sale or working on issues with that edition and if I wanted to use it I would have to pay the $15 again.) I needed the product to do one thing, supply me a map of the region I am boating in. The extras sounded cool but when you can't do the very thing you are being purchased for it makes the purchase seem ignorant.
  • Not sure if I really like it.

    I bought the app to use mostly on Lake Michigan. The app works but it has a few issues. First, it has only a few of the Mariñas in some areas. Second, must of the times the routs when you use "boat to" takes you inland. Apparently the app cannot define very well between inland and the water. Third, it doesn't really gives you the waves report; you have to find some buoys and many times it reports the wrong wave size. When you click on Buoys does not give you the wave info either. Fourth, once you start the navigation it does not give you the distance to your destination just the information since you started the trip. The map doesn't update your location automatically so you are force to go their way which most likely than not takes you inland. For being the #1 boating app as they claim, they have a lot to improve still. It is $10 a year after all.
  • Must I pay on every device?

    I have a paid version of Navionics on my iPad. I have a paid version of Navionics on my Raymarine chart plotter. But I have to pay again for a third subscription to get it on my phone? That's just nuts.

    I am a new boater, and all my experienced boating friends have encouraged me to familiarize myself with the areas I want to visit, so I checked out this app. I was specifically looking at the Spokane river as it flows out of Lake Coeur d' Alene and the charts are simply all wrong. It shows depths of 0-2 feet where there are docks visible on the map and I know for a fact that the area is completely navigable with an average depth suitable to most personal watercraft. Now I'm bummed because I'm unsure whether I can trust this technology or not. What's the deal?
