  • No Maps Available

    By MadRienell
    I'm not sure what all the 5 star ratings are about. I kept clicking on regions to download freshwater lake maps (Large lakes with ports like Lake Coeur D'ALene, Pend O'rielle and Dworshak Reservoir in Idaho). Nothing comes up...just errors stating there is no data. Don't waste your time on this app. UPDATED: The developer contacted me about how to download the maps, which was helpful. I was clicking too long and holding down the tile too long. So I did a short click in the region where I wanted a map to test out the app. (Lake Coeur D'Alene area). It highlighted that area, but downloaded a map (my one free download of course) for the Columbia River in Washington instead. Nothing in Idaho shows up except for Priest Lake which is not where I go fishing. Something is off on your Idaho mapping system. Not going to try this again...if I can't see the detail of the lake I want before I purchase, I'm not going to buy it.

  • Not good for inland

    By N5658Z
    Was looking for something to use on inland lakes, not this, black hole in map for the lakes in my area. Waste of money!
  • Needs some things

    By I need answers
    As a inland guy training for my masters I found the app to be cool. I run the ditch from Baton Rouge to Houston, so looking at this while I’m at home is a help to study on on my course. What would make for some improvement would be a way to pin notes. There’s a lot of bends and twist and things to remember about what bends you can hold the point and ones you need to keep wide, and radio check ins. It would be nice to be able to put notes so I can reference back at that location for learning.
  • Maps does not download: error message

    By SheilaV23
    I just got this app and when you tap the map to download- it gives an error message. I would eventually like to purchase if it works- but I will not be willing to risk paying for $20 bucks and it doesn’t work. Update: I contacted support on a weekend and they responded back within hours and gave me instruction on how to download the map. And it works!!!! Now I’m a satisfied customer. Will be trying the app out on the boat this weekend. So far, as I am reviewing it, it looks detailed and very useful. If it is what it set out to be, I will be purchasing this app.
  • Excellent App

    By SV NoRush
    I sail around the cost of South Africa and have found this to be an excellent app to back up my navigation - my iPad and this app have become my chart plotter at a very affordable price. The only issue I had was when I upgraded and renewed my subscription the information wasn’t to clear on how todo that but now that it is installed and running I am very happy and can confidently recommend this app to others.
  • GPS good / Maps pretty good

    By Jeff slotto
    Not all Lakes marked in some states but support works with you and adds them in updates. This mainly applies to areas that have been flooded for a decade or longer - Midwest. Gps and map functions are very good.
