I am a full time ocean mariner. I originally paid the one time fee for this app for lifetime charts. It is not ok to renig on our deal and wipe my charts.

For those paying annually, you may be at sea someday and find that your charts have been suddenly wiped from your device at expiration. It happened to me. This is a severe safety issue and is unethical.

I’ve since discovered there are other great chart apps, none charge annually.

Wish it wouldn't crash so often


I really like their apps, but they have to work on whatever it is that makes the app crash occasionally. Make sure you save your route and exit once in a while so that you don't loose your work because if it crashes while you are working, all routes that were not saved when you last exited will be gone. Seems like at least it should save the routes when we hit save don't you think.

I would also like to be able to turn off some stuff when zoomed out to simplify the views a little bit.

It still gets a good review from me because of the affordability of the app. If it didn't crash so often it would get a full 5 stars

Chart management is lousy


When you buy & download the app, you get only a course-grained base map. You have to manually download chart details for the area you are interested in. This is free, but is limited to a very small rectangle at a time. For example, my first rectangle extended from La Paz, Baja Sur, Mexico to Mazatlan. I had to do several more rectangles to get from San Diego to Manzanillo. At this pace, I'm guessing it'll take about 3 to 4 hours of my time to download all of the charts to which I am entitled as a result of the purchase. Come on, Navionics, give us a "download all" option, and I'll give you not only more stars, but another $50 for the US & Canada product.
