  • Accuracy

    By Mghgfshjk
    Not very accurate. Can be at least 30 feet off. Maybe gets you to the general area.
  • Can you manually enter coordinates in for fishing waypoints?

    I’m currently using the free two week trial and like the app a lot but I need to be able to manually enter coordinates in so I can put fishing hot spots in. Is that possible or is there another solution out there?
  • Confused

    By Fun Elsa
    So I had bought this app about 3yrs ago and I thought it was a one time fee of $10 so my question is why do I have to pay again to get my break maps and depth charts it won’t let me zoom in to see the depth lines anymore like it used to?
  • Really, every time have to agree..??

    By Dhon bulhaa
    Every time I have to agree terms and conditions while opening the app. This is really annoying. Pls fix it
  • Money Pit

    By Big Red 12
    I purchased Navionics South several years ago. It doesn't even exist anymore. No updates. My iPhone actually tells me it won't function. Then they come out with Navionics Lakes and Maps and want more money. Not me. Full me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.
  • Update

    By rocknangler
    Please update to fit the larger iPhone X screen. Love the app, but the small screen size is annoying.
  • Licensing/privacy policy

    By Naftikos
    One paid for old versions but was not intruded on or tracked. The new versions have unacceptable licensing/privacy policies. I deleted the app.
  • Spent $$$ - stopped updating & changed program names

    By MaireSF
    I purchased the Western US version years ago before I had an iPad. At the time, it was among the more expensive apps. It looked cool and I was excited to try it out boating. I was disappointed after discovering that the iPHONE SCREEN WAY TOO SMALL for practical use of the app. Additionally, the app also crawled when changing location and zooming in and out. *Those considering the iPhone version should keep this in mind.* I thought the program had great potential and assumed that updates would not be an issue for the price I paid, so I figured I would use it down the road when I had an iPad. (Some time passed where I also had intervening health issues that prevented me from boating.) After the recent iOS 11 update, I was dismayed to discover the pricey app no longer worked. It appeared in the list of apps showing it needed an update but there was NO LINK in the App store. After digging some more, I noticed that Navionics had cleverly changed the app names and introduced a new pricing structure. Apparently, they changed the program years ago. Strange. I don’t recall receiving any notices that a change was being considered at the time of purchase, nor at the time the products were renamed, nor before the loss of functionality. It also seems kinda fishy that they didn’t keep the old name up in the App store with an explanation after the functionality was cut off or offer pre-existing users a special deal. It appears they changed the graphics so the iPhone version looks terrible on the iPad and you have no choice but to pay alot more for the iPhone version. Given it is just depth lines, markers and such, I don’t see why they couldn’t design a scale the app like so many other developers have done. The bottom line is I got burned for foolishly trusting them and I caution others to think twice before shelling out money to a developer that has ditched previous users. Never know when they are going to take advantage of an iOS update to change the app design to force you to buy another full priced version.
  • Works well, but there’s a catch

    By Ffmedic39
    I like the app itself, however, when I bought a new phone it wants to charge me, again for full use for what I’ve paid for already. Not happy.
  • Night vision?

    By Studio B
    I tried using your app on the MR340 kayak race in August. I actually emailed your sales dept. in July with questions but never got a response. It was handy to be able to find the current and pace and landmarks/obstructions. The challenging parts were: it was super hard to see the course in the glare of daylight because the line was so small and there was no way to adjust it, at night there’s no night mode to change the colors and save your night vision, when trying to set waypoints on the fly it picked up way to many on shore locations that weren’t even in the same area when I was looking for the next boat ramp checkpoint. The only auto-route I got to work was for the very last leg of the race. There’s an an Android app that does has all of these features and more but I only had an iPhone available. Check out mr340propaddler on the google play App Store.
