Ratings and Reviews
Still a rip off!! The developer is a thief!
Get Fish Spots app instead, has all the FREE FEATURES navionics USED TO HAVE FREE BUT TOOK AWAY UNLESS YOU PAY AGAIN!!! I just turned on my navionics app to notice that the satellite information is no longer available. I bought this app for $10 a few years ago. When I had bought it, it came with these features. So now you're going to screw me and make me pay for the same features that I've already paid for??? What you're doing is wrong and most likely illegal and if nothing else, seriously unethical. You can't charge people for an app that has certain features then release an update that does not have those features and attempt to charge them to get the features back. I will report this app to the Apple App Store, the Better Business Bureau and my local states attorney for nefarious business practices.
I won't be deleting this app because I already paid for it once and I won't pay for "premium "features that already came with the app when I paid $10 for the first time!!!!! Thieves!!!!!
We are sorry to hear your disappointment. As when Apple iOS are no longer supported & alienates some devices, consumable app layers also change & are driven by renewable subscriptions. Navionics+ includes daily chart updates, weather, Dock-to-dock Autorouting & more. We apologize for any inconvenience & strive for continued development improving app functions over the long term.
Love the app but still getting use to it. Can't find any documentation for how to use it. I saved a track I made yesterday hoping I could use it as a guide going out on the boat today, but I can't figure out how to bring up yesterday's track on the chart, or if it is even possible to do so. No instructions within the app nor on the website. If there's a way to do this I'd give it 6 stars!
We are glad to hear you are enjoying the app! For information on how to use the app, there is a user’s guide within the app itself. To access the user’s guide, open the Navionics app and go to Menu and scroll down to Help. The user’s guide will explain all of the various functions of the app in detail.
We have many additional articles on our website as well, where you can find our Help section. You can search by keyword to find the information you need, or filter your search. For example, you can search the word "track" to pull up various instructions, as shown here: http://bit.ly/2jYyLJl. In regard to your inquiry, you can open a previously saved track by tapping on Menu, then tap on Tracks. A list of previously saved tracks will appear. Select the track you want to display by tapping on it, and it will then open up on your map screen.

Always Tracking My Location?!?
I don't understand why the App needs to track my location when I'm not using it. When I turn it on, I obviously get it, but not when I'm no where near the water and not using the App.
In this age of heightened sensitivity to privacy, all of my other apps that need to know where I am have added a 'Only when using the App' to the Privacy>Location Services options so as users we have more control vs the binary Always/Never option you only have now. I hope you'll add one as well.
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.
