  • Too soon to tell but......

    So far I’ve just been experimenting with the’Lite’ version. I’ve been quite pleased with how it seems to work and the responses I’ve gotten from the developer. I plan to download the full version ($24.99) shortly but won’t be able to put it into play until the end of May when I will ‘use it to death’ (!) on a 2 week trip to Canada. I’ll plan to do an update review after that.
  • So far sooo good!

    By THE trail guy
    Downloaded the app onto my iPad Pro along with my one free sample chart. It worked great. I’m using it for navigation on my sailboat. I’ve now (paid for) downloaded several charts all of which have worked well. I did run into a problem with a GPS error message (wouldn’t fix my position) while pre-plotting a route. I sent a message to the developer about it and had a response the same day. Turned out to be a system setting and the problem was rectified in short order.
  • Good app

    By Raj9840
    This is a good app to have when sailing. ENC Charts are accurate and reside on the phone. GPS moving map works very well even there is no internet accurately showing where the boat is and where it is headed. The US charts include both coasts and inland lakes. Definitely a good app to have whether you fish in salt water or fresh waters. We had an issue figuring out checking depth unit and it was promptly resolved by customer support.
  • Seems like a nice easy to use app.

    Seems like a nice easy to use app.
  • I would like to the charts that I purchased

    By fishless with these charts
    I purchase charts for the Caribbean waters! Now I see depths but I definitely need to see the bottom and not vague rocks coral Ect. There are really no charts that I got for my purchase that are not found free everywhere. I still have to make my own charts and then this app will try to use my work for other customers. I was expecting to get something for my purchase and not for myself to provide the service. Sorry guys not great however at least it can get me home but could have done that with my gps.
  • Poor directions

    By Bmmatus
    The App seems that could be very useful but the directions are terrible
  • Good App

    By Snoopy2822
    Like how easy the app is to use. I would like a satellite view of the maps other than that this app has done what I needed it to do
  • Love it!

    By Silvasys
    I’ve been looking for an economic solution to navigating my small bowrunner around VA/DC/MD. This does the trick and then some. So far so good.
  • Outstanding Resource, Excellent Support

    By lmcjr
    I downloaded this app ahead of my first trip to a lake a day’s drive away and it was fantastically useful. When I couldn’t find a chart for another lake in the library I wrote to the developer and not only did I receive a prompt acknowledgment the chart became available shortly thereafter. If only all apps were this useful and well supported.
  • Great app!

    By Jim48162
    I use this app regularly. Very accurate and easy to use. I did have an issue where I lost all my maps but tech support was quick to resolve the issue. Highly recommend this app!!
