Not sure if I really like it.


I bought the app to use mostly on Lake Michigan. The app works but it has a few issues.
First, it has only a few of the Mariñas in some areas.
Second, must of the times the routs when you use "boat to" takes you inland. Apparently the app cannot define very well between inland and the water.
Third, it doesn't really gives you the waves report; you have to find some buoys and many times it reports the wrong wave size. When you click on Buoys does not give you the wave info either.
Fourth, once you start the navigation it does not give you the distance to your destination just the information since you started the trip. The map doesn't update your location automatically so you are force to go their way which most likely than not takes you inland.

For being the #1 boating app as they claim, they have a lot to improve still. It is $10 a year after all.

Thank you for your feedback, as it is important for us when making improvements to our apps. We hope to provide some clarity on certain features, and offer resolution. First, if you find that some Marinas are not on our maps, you have the opportunity to add them using the Community Edits feature. For instructions, please see: http://bit.ly/2gJSU4J. Second, when you tap the "Boat To" option, this will create a route for you - however in order for the route to calculate properly you must make sure to check your boat settings as well as start and end point locations/depths: http://bit.ly/2eYQxHr. Third, at this time wave height forecasts are not available within the app, but we will certainly pass this along as a suggestion to our developers for consideration with future updates. Fourth, when you start navigation after creating a route, you should have a Navigation Module pane as part of the Navionics+ subscription, which will include: Estimated time to Destination, Estimated time to Waypoint (route leg), Course over Ground, Estimated Distance to Arrival, Estimated Distance to Waypoint, Fuel Consumption, Points of Interest at your Destination as well as In-route editing and real time navigation stats. For further questions and support, please write to help@navionics.com referencing case #343859. Thank you!

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?

Developer Response

You can pinpoint a marker location by entering coordinates using the Lat/Long button from the Search feature. Please see the following article which will help guide you through the process: http://bit.ly/2GMRkYq.

Give me the old Navionics back

Captain Thomas

I use the old iOS Navionics
US Central to deliver a yacht from Chattanooga to Detroit as well as in the bayous of Louisiana and it worked great. Then Navionics quit supporting it to make people purchase this new app but it does not work. The app can't decide direction of travel or speed of travel. I have deleted and reinstalled it as well as put it on a second phone (iPhone 6 then 6s) it is still worthwhile.

Developer Response

Captain Thomas, the older apps were discontinued in 2011 due to the ever-increasing updates to operating systems (iOS). Our current apps, developed in 2012, are designed to keep up with iOS updates. According to your review, you seem to be running app version 10.7.1. We would encourage you to update to the latest version 10.7.2 in order for the app to function optimally. Simply go into the AppStore > Updates to manually update.

In regard to the issue with direction/speed of travel, our app relies on the internal GPS receiver on the device. To troubleshoot any GPS issues, please try the steps from the following link: http://bit.ly/2fvWQSK. If the issue persists, please write us at help@navionics.com referencing case #348353. Our goal is to make sure your app is working properly so that you may enjoy your time out on the water. Thank you, and have a great day!
