Boater Scam

Pw henderson

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.

Developer Response

We regret to hear of what you are experiencing and would like to investigate this matter regarding the missing detail immediately. Once you have purchased a coverage area within your app, charts will always be at your disposal even with an expired subscription. You will also have the option to renew for another year at a deeply discounted price. Please email help@navionics.com (ref# 00359851) with a screenshot so we can see what you are viewing. We hope to hear from you. Thank you

Great App, 2 Suggestions


I use this in Maine on the ocean. It is a complement to my aging Raymarine chart plotter. It is so much easier to plot a route, although I am sure if I upgraded the boat's electronics I would see the same kind of easy touch screen features (for thousands of dollars, though). I snap it into an Arkon rail mount that accepts the iPad even in an Otterbox Defender. Two things would make it even better
1. When underway, if you decide to edit a route then go to save it, the two boxes are Save Route and Delete Route. They are close together, and if you aren't precise and hit the delete box, the route is gone. How about a default question box that asks if you want to delete? Bouncing around in the real world and editing as you see the actual buoy location is common, so this would recognize that.
2. How about an option to shift to a Heads Up display orientation? Seems obvious and easy, but not a feature in any version so far. This would help me quickly compare it to my radar display without a mental calculation on direction.
This App is a great value, accurate and easy to use.

Not ready for Prime Time


I liked the App initially. The charts are sharp and generally adequate for small boat navigation. The program is especially useful in trip planning. I have not used it underway so I cannot comment on it's usefulness in actual navigation, but I do see possibilities in keeping folks ashore in the loop. All that is lost however when after two hours of work the program crashes, the screen goes black and all is lost. Or, when you have a route planned, saved (you think) and you are on the next leg and the previous route dies, not always, but often enough to make me want to throw my ipad out the window. I now have a couple of routes which are still in the ipad although I do not know why, and several that have been laid out several times and are lost somewhere in the electronic abyss. This is potentially a great APP but it is not ready. I hope someone is working on it. I have contacted the Support and they answered me. They were polite but offered no solution.
