  • Stopped working

    By Zmelda
    I bought the maps 6 months ago and now when I open the app it doesn’t recognize me and acts like I need to buy them again. After searching the developers website I could not find a place to contact for help with the account. Very frustrating. It’s a great product when it works.
  • I can’t read the DEPTH

    By Hawk GT
    What is the one thing you need from a chart but can’t get from just sitting in your boat ? WATER DEPTH. So, I bought the $15 subscription and kept this as a digital plan B when out on the water. When I tried to use it on the water (not an ideal reading environment ) I had to stop the boat and zoom in and out so the water depth was shown in a font bigger than 1cm. When zooming, the iPhone will digitally zoom and increase the depth markings to a readable size. Then the app redraws the map at a higher magnification and dutifully represents depth in the smallest font possible. I could not see depth on a iPhone plus. Why can’t this be set as a user option???? By the way, the finger pinch is generally interpreted as a “move to a location 100 miles from here...”. This app is too mature to suffer from basic user interface problems like this. Can’t the developer just clone a fishfinder/gps user interface? Garmin has one, and Garmin owns Navionics. Why sell an app that sports a half-baked user interface? But if you are sitting in a dark room with reading glasses, have plenty of patience, and perfect the pinch maneuver, you can scope out some new waterways with this app. Better yet, use the web browser interface for free and on a HUGE monitor you will be able to see depths. And you will avoid pinch vs move user interface confusion.
  • Navigation wizard.

    I didn’t want to pay an arm & a leg for a navigation app, but Navionics Boating turned out to be very reasonable. The auto course routing alone is well worth the price. It maps out your route point to point taking into account depth and markers using your boats specs as a guide. I’ll never fish again without it !
  • High data usage

    By CCIE-Student
    I have had this app for years and it has gotten progressively worse over time. Especially with this last set of changes. Now it seems like it needs to download 300-500mb worth of maps every time it tries to calculate a route, even when it downloaded the data for the previous attempt at the route. Recommendation - Don’t buy this unless you have unlimited data on your plan and have no need to use it for creating routes.
  • Ok, but there are better free open source apps available.

    Renewal costs are absurd...
  • Misleading. Buy Lakemaster instead

    By jajsjJakhabahsh
    Purchased Navionics chip and installed on my computer. Downloaded to my phone. This app does not allow you to use your log in on the app. Paid a lot of money for the chip, should be able to use the app. DO NOT BUY.
  • Not so good

    By fthisappx10
    I bought the the app so I could see the water depth of the Susquehanna river in PA. It should be one of the most well known rivers in the state. This app showed the entire river as 0-1 foot deep. I asked for help and was told that my settings were off when I’ve never changed them. Double checked that and still 0-1. This app paints a picture of having more information but really you’re better off using maps provided online.
  • Change of yerms

    By psommarva
    I bought this app a couple years ago as an occasional sailor. I also bought the Europe maps. I think I paid €30 for the app and about the same for the maps. Now I cannot use the app any longer without buying a subscription. That’s a change of contract. The concept if “buying” an app is not the same as buying a physical map. Apparently. The UI if this app is counterintuitive. It takes a while to understand and it’s easy to fall in the same mistakes. Saving a route, retrieving it and running it are easily mistaken. On a night navigation I had this app run alongside google maps to make sure it was doing the right thing. The only reason this map has any users is there are no other decent apps with moving map and some like Garmin that are even more expensive and locked to hardware. Overall a decent experience for a few bucks. No way I will ever pay a subscription to update the position of buoys or the depth of the sea.
  • Do research

    By Clan Crusher17
    Fished the same lake since I was a kid so I know the depths by heart, navionics is wrong! I looked at several other lakes I fish and compared navionics with DNR maps and again, wrong! Also, some lakes are marked well with cribs, launches ect. Others, nothing. Spend the money on a gps/sonor unit.
  • Requires Garmon Subscription

    By Mbihc
    Edit - new update still require a Garmon Subscription. App keeps getting worse. I don’t care how many times you explain it and try to spin it as a benefit - I’m not getting a Garmin account.
