Great app but no privacy


I have been using the app many years and it's generally excellent.
However the latest upgrades are gimmicky and Navionics have no respect for user's privacy.
The only options for providing them your location are "never" or "always"
Other, decent apps have the option "when using the app" which is always my preference.
Why do Navionics need to know where I am at all times ??

Developer Response

In order to stop your GPS from running in the background, double tap your "Home" button then swipe the Navionics app preview up to force close the app. You may also choose to manually turn off your location services within the settings of your device. Currently the app is not designed to turn your GPS location services off automatically when the app is closed, however this will be forwarded as a suggestion to our Development Team for consideration with future updates of our apps. We appreciate your input as we continuously strive to improve our products.

Captains problems


I have paid for this app mow more times than i care to remember. I have just switched back to apple and have had to pay for it again. Just sorted the maps for my iphone and now when i go on my new ipad it says there are no purchases.

Are you trying to get me to pay per device now. This is becoming a rip off. I rely on your software as a back up for the on boat systems but am likely to change.

We are glad to inform you that the Navionics Mobile Standard apps for iPhone are also compatible with the iPad devices. You can reinstall your iPhone App on your iPad by using the same ID Apple used to purchase the app in the first place: https://tinyurl.com/y9lan54r. You will need to reinstall on your iPad exactly the same App’s title you have on the iPhone (non-HD app). However, your app will be displayed on the iPad with the same screen resolution as on the iPhone, see this tutorial article too: https://tinyurl.com/ybhzalj3. Feel free to email help@navionics.com referencing case number #379512, if further assistance is needed. Have a great day

iPad & iPhone versions are different products, which don't sync


I tried the iPad and iPhone versions, which have good functionality. I bought a subscription from on my phone, because iPad was charging. Turns out the iPad and iPhone versions are different products and don't sync. I now have the product on my phone, when I rally wanted it on my iPad.

You can install the phone version on iPad, but looks very clunky as resolution is for phone.

Actual nautical functionality seems quite good, but very disappointed with the fact they are completely different versions isn't explained, and a subsequent lack of support.

Feel ripped off.

The Navionics Mobile Apps for navigation are available in two different versions: the standard and the HD version. The HD Mobile Apps have optimized charting & user interface for the iPad's screen size. Due to the further development required for this version of the app, it is not compatible to load onto an iPhone. If you own a standard iPhone app instead, you may install it on both your iPhone and iPad by using same iTunes account (but it won’t show full screen on iPad).
In our Online Support we explain all our products and features and you can find some tutorial articles on these topics too: https://tinyurl.com/y9jmp3f2 or/and https://tinyurl.com/y985gqjw. Search by keyword to find the needed information, or filter your search.
