  • Tracking

    4
    By Chawinne
    Love the app but still getting use to it. Can't find any documentation for how to use it. I saved a track I made yesterday hoping I could use it as a guide going out on the boat today, but I can't figure out how to bring up yesterday's track on the chart, or if it is even possible to do so. No instructions within the app nor on the website. If there's a way to do this I'd give it 6 stars!
  • Forces location settings even when not in use.

    It would be great if the developers offered the very logical option of enabling location while the app is in use instead of only "Always or Never". Kinda silly. Do not buy.
  • Location tracking and now... a pop-up ad

    I've commented before there's no functional purpose requiring location services be on "always" or "never". This binary option is for the collection of data plain and simple. Now pop-up's? Really? I got an obtrusive "message" about a Sea-Tow service (which isn't available in my area by the way) on screen while I was navigating. Now I see the true purpose of Navionics always-on location tracking. Selling adverts. I thought smarter app developers were beyond this kind of nonsense. It's simple: if you need the money offer a small fee to users to AVOID this type of disturbance. Especially while navigating!! This is a pretty good app and I use Navionics software on my Raymarine systems. But the developers are going to ruin it and lose customers with this nonsense.
  • Love it, but...

    Love the app but please make it easier to add waypoints. And quit calling them markers, they should be called waypoints.
  • Love it

    Used sailing up the North River (currently named Hudson River). Catalina 36, way easier to use than NavX, very practical
  • Solid app minus a few things

    When the orientation switches to landscape the details (speed, heading, etc) disappear. Please fix this.
  • One of the best apps I have ever used

    I have fished out of a kayak for a long time and have a basic depth finder. This app replaces the need to upgrade to a more expensive unit as it replaces the lake mapping. If you're simply fishing specific structure lines and specific depths, especially while trolling, this can replace a depth finder completely The GPS on the app is very accurate
  • Not bad

    Tons of great features. Very reasonably priced. Two complaints: 1) asks to agree to terms EVERY time you open the app 2) it's plotted a route through land a few times.
  • Amazing App

    We bought a new boat in Maryland and had to drive it home to the north shore of Long Island through waters we were completely unfamiliar with. The equipment on the boat was not functioning as hoped and this app came to the rescue. Our trip was plotted for us easily and the we found fuel docks with the app and navigated home easily and safely with no problems. Thank you Navionocs!!
  • Location Always On

    Great app, but doesn't have the option to only use my location when I'm using the app, so it kills my battery. Please fix this feature.
