Too complicated to use


I have had this app for several years, and only use it ever so often. Every time I have to go back and re-read instructions to use. It just seems overly complicated compared to, for example the Navionics app. Specific examples would be:

Way points appear as a long list. How can the user tell which is which? Why not group by route and/or date??

Measuring distance-if you reach the edge of a map on the screen it won't pan over. Navionics does.

Keeps adding an additional waypoint to the end of a route and thus distorts direction. Can't seem to add additional WP in middle of a route.

How do you easily track where you have been? Seems to be complicated for something so essential.

If you use a chart that the program doesn't think is relevant, you have to go back to the list and find it again. Why not leave it under "recently used" or similar?? Area this applies to would be San Juan islands in Washington, where several charts apply to one location.

Creating a route is excessively complicated. Why not create this on the screen?? It's a basic function of a gps based system!

Summary: this might be useful for someone who uses every day, but is too cumbersome and complicated for the average user. It seems like it tries to be "all things to all people". Navionics, for example, is a far better choice. Can never reach any help to get advice or support. Very disappointed.

Good App, but...


We have used this app for two years now, sailing out of St. Augustine, FL, and now bound around the world on our 35' sailboat. This app has many nice features and it has gotten us through the Caribbean, now 3,000 miles. I really like the way it works and the detail it shows. I prefer the Navionics charts. We run the app on our iPad2 as our primary chart plotter, and keep a back-up iPad2 loaded with the same charts. You are allowed to run charts on two devices for the one purchase price for each set of charts.

Here's the "But...": This app does not support Active Captain. Active Captain is like TripAdvisor for cruisers. On chart plotters and apps that show AC, you can see details about ports, marinas, and anchorages right on your chart, complete with member reviews. If iNavX allowed Active Captain to show on its charts, it would be about perfect for navigation. Until iNavX supports AC, I will rate this a 4.

Best app purchase ever!!!


I have had this app for over 5 years, and I have received immense value from the purchase. While it is always best to confirm location with other means, iNav has never failed me. Being able to have redundancy, on both my iPad and iPhone, allows for extra piece of mind. Updating charts is easy. I have traveled extended trips in the Great Lakes and connecting river, including anchoring out using the anchor alarm feature. This app will be a necessity in an upcoming Great Loop trip.
