  • Please fix bug - Cannot obtain wind forecast

    By 348SStb
    Upon attempting to obtain a wind forecast, which I’ve been doing for many years, the app says “Connection Failed - please check your connection and try again.” Please fix and advise.
  • App is a ripoff

    By BeltonAg
    I’ve bought this App twice and now you’ve moved to a yearly subscription... you can keep it!!!
  • Route/Track Header toggle

    By Meh, it's okay.
    ***update to developer response. *********** Yeah, that is the problem. ONLY the track info is available in the header. The previous versions had a TOGGLE between track info on ROUTE info. The route info in the header had such info as time and mileage to the next route point. Without that, you have to do a lot of work to get that info. It was nice to have it quickly available. ********************************************** I used boating USA app to sail from New Orleans to Guatemala. It was a truly valuable app. Although I had other navigation systems to rely on as back up, I never used them. I will likely use this app again, next season, to continue down to Panama. The updates make the functionality different, and I'm sure I will learn it. If I can make one request, it would be to put back the Header Toggle between Route and Track info. Having that info available so quickly was very handy. That Header held a wealth of useful info, that just isn't there in the update. Bring that back, and you'll have a great product again.
  • Beware when you renew subscription

    By renaissancefellow
    The Navionics app continues to be misleading when you try to renew your subscription. I renewed my subscription to US and Canada, but the app continued to display “Subscription Expired” and a button to “USA Charts”, no matter how many times I restarted and re-synched the app. Eventually, out of desperation, I clicked the “USA Charts” button, so I got subscribed to USA as well (which are already included in US and Canada). I really feel that the UI misled me. I emailed Navionics, explaining what happened and asking for a refund on the second purchase, but no reply. Navionics charts are good, but I am so tired with Navionics behavior, their in-app purchases are just misleading, they do not follow Apple’s guidelines, and have been this way for a long time. I did report them to Apple, if you have similar problems do the same.
  • Navionics shady business practice

    By Kasper Harris
    I’ve been a long term user of Navionics:US and Canada which they are “discontinuing”. They recommend for all users to download their “new” Navionics Boating and Lakes app for “no additional cost”. Navionics business practice is crooked. I paid $7.99 for an annual subscription for Navionics+ under the US and Canada app but now am forced to pay $21.99 for Navionics+ in the boating and Lakes app. Shame on you greedy Navionics!
  • Expired subscriptions render app unusable

    By maryandred
    The app works great until one of your map subscriptions expires. The app then reminds you constantly, including every time you go back to it after minimizing it, and makes you “accept terms” for use of the “free” features just so you can then use it with the subscription you paid for. I have multiple maps downloaded from multiple trips but only one subscription active at any time. Worst design ever. Come on Navionics — you should be better than this!
  • Not good

    By Egritz63
    I used iNavX for years and loved it. I guess it has been purchased and is no longer available. So they direct you this chart plotter and it is terrible compared to the old iNaxX. In so many ways. E.G. Creating a route is very difficult and almost useless. I don’t understand why or how this occurred but I want my old chart plotting app back. What a waste.
  • GPS only works on land

    By omgnamestaken
    I used to love navionics but with the new version that they moved to the gps doesn’t seem to work on my iPad. It will only show my location on land, or place me on the nearest land if I’m in the water. This doesn’t make the app useful at all. Glad I kept the previous version on my phone, at least for however long it will keep working. I bought the iPad specifically to use navionics and its a real letdown that its not working. I can’t recommend until they fix this.
  • Horrific Support

    By Mcgeebs
    I had a simple question about a problem with the App and have been waiting for over one week for a response. I have reached out multiple times and they either don't care or don't have a clue. Either way is all bad. Don't buy!!
