    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?

  • Lowrance plotter sync doesn't seem to work

    Giving this four stars as the app is solid in general but the new functionality in this release for plotter sync to Navcio units doesn't seem to work. It keeps saying my plotter card is not right and it's a brand new Navionics update card that works fin in the plotter and with updates on the computer. Was really looking forward to this functionality talked to Navionics support and they didn't even know they had released this yet. Hope they get it resolved soon otherwise this app is great.
  • An excellent nav tool, but recent version is SLOW

    I've been using this app for a year as my primary chart (beside a Raymarine plotter) traveling from Lake Ontario to the Bahamas and back because of its ability to chart routes so easily, find nearby marinas and fuel docks, and store my track. I also love the community uploads of the sonar charts. With this I managed to come up the ICW without touching bottom in some of the trickiest shoaling spots. Recent version updates, however, seem to have gotten slower and crash often. It looks as if it's going to network all the time. With speed and reliability back, I'd give this six stars if I could.

    I've bought Europe region map paying serious amount and just learned that I cannot not use it at my ipad. It's very disappointing.
  • Awesome App.

    This app is great and is a must for anyone wanting to find good spots on lakes for ice fishing or summer fishing. I just submitted a sour review about how it was unclear how to subscribe for another annual subscription, but within a few days my questions were answered. I recommend this app to anyone who loves fishing. Tight lines.

    I purchased Navionics South several years ago. It doesn't even exist anymore. No updates. My iPhone actually tells me it won't function. Then they come out with Navionics Lakes and Maps and want more money. Not me. Full me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.
  • Beautiful maps, rich info, navigation in name only

    I had hoped this might replace my old handheld GPS. It has some wonderful features but despite the name is unsuitable for navigation. You might say "don't expect to much from this tool and it won't disappoint you". Just used the trial version on a 45 mile passage in SF Bay. Maps were fast and accurate. Real time currents and tides are surprisingly good and useful. Local sonar charts have recent details not available elsewhere. I might buy it for this alone. I'll never leave my paper charts at home but this is so much more flexible and convenient. The route planning tool was also great, but falls over when you want to sail the route. A huge lack is you can't import waypoints. This alone kills the idea of using it to navigate. Real time navigation is very limited. Concepts such as VMG, Turn, Heading, and likely many others are missing. The interface to interact with a route while on the journey is clunky. You are left with eyeballing your track and guessing what to do. I'm waiting and hoping for OpenCPN, but in the meantime this is worth a longer look. I spent well over $100 on Blue Charts and won't be doing that again. But I'd really love to drop the old GPS into the chart table along with my back-up paper charts... That's not happening yet. If Navionics decided to live up to their name and create a navigation module in deed instead of only in name, buying this would be a no-brainer. As is, I'll probably keep looking for others.
  • User interface

    The user interface is terrible. It randomly zooms, makes a track, depth display disappears. Fix the user interface and this app might be worth something. Otherwise it's junk.
