  • Everything lost!!

    By Amp1971
    I paid for and used this app for years as a guide. I had hundreds of waypoints and data. After a recent update everything was lost. I was never asked to create an account during the time I had the app, now it wants me to log in and they tell me if I didn’t previously have an account then none of my data is retrievable!!!
  • Waypoints

    By jimlingerjr
    I wish you could label your waypoints.
  • Great App and cheap.

    By OfflineTN
    Has all the maps you need to go boating. Try buying the maps for an external chart plotter. You’ll save hundreds with this app!
  • Hard/impossible to import/export waypoints and routes

    By Bay city rocker
    The auto routing feature is nice. However the only way to import or export waypoints is with plotter sync to a compatible chart plotter which ALSO has Navionics charts. You have to purchase charts separately for iPhone and iPad. And it’s not clear what happens if you have to replace or update your device - probably have to re-purchase all the charts. I prefer iSailor, which associates charts with your iCloud account, meaning you can access them from all Your iOS devices, and don’t lose them if you upgrade your phone or lose/break a device. AND you can easily download list of waypoints, or export and share routes with your flotilla buddies.
  • Love it

    By Ander4455
    Its not as user friendly as the real deals are, but for a phone and a back up navigation method its great. Just turn your phone on ‘airplane’ mode when you head off shore then activate the tracking. You will see where you are/went and the coordinates if you intend on coming back later ;)
  • Great App!

    By 2CentReview
    I use this app every time I go fishing. It is very accurate and helpful. One feature that would be helpful is to be able to turn on an overlay of all my tracks so I can see on the map where I have been. This would be helpful especially in my area with sandbars, oyster beds and rocks.
  • App is handy

    By Dirks dirks
    Just be nice if they could locate all the lock and dam locations on the Mississippi.
  • Pay again?

    By metalfan82183
    I paid for this app, and now it’s asking for more money. I will not pay again to use the app I’ve already paid for. I will be deleting this app today. Which is too bad, because it was a good app.
  • Fabulous!

    By Serious listener23
    I used this app for ice fishing, it worked great to find deep holes for Tullibees. Wish they had a tutorial but wayyyy better than buying a GPS. I don’t know why there are so many bad reviews, this app is great. I can mark all of my fishing spots and I will definitely be using this for a long time.
  • No compass headings!!

    By get-shipshape
    This app uses True North bearings & headings rather than compass headings/bearings. There is no indication of that in setup. No big deal unless don’t mind being off course while using your navigation software.
