Throw that old Lowrance away
This app has completely changed how I plan my off road adventures. I used it for a 2500 mile Baja adventure, and was able to create daily routes from stop to stop. I do a lot of off roading in the Western US and pre plan my routes with this app. There is a learning curve, but they have great videos on their website to help. I gladly upgraded to the pro version and the $120 per year is a spit in the bucket for the function/features you receive. I raced in several Baja 1K’s and NORRA M1k. I fought with lowrance god units every time. Using an IPad is so much better, and there are SO many more features with LeadNav.
Poor execution of a good idea
Trying to map out the desert for offline use is a grueling process. Takes a $20 per year in-app purchase if you want satellite imagery. Zooming in beyond your pre-loaded resolution will result in the map rendering itself blank. Marked trails are not able to be overlaid onto the satellite map. Even pre-loading non-satellite maps to show marked routes requires the same process as the satellite maps and has the same issue of zoom/resolution blank rendering. Would require hours of work to preload a large area. I'm sure it's a great app for racers with detailed, planned routes who pay the $150 per year. It's not a good app for weekend warriors / exploring unless you are willing to pay extra and spend hours pre-loading your planned area in small increments.
Developer Response ,
Agreed! If you are not a pro user or an everyday Offroader who is not willing to pay $150 a year or more on a full gps package DO NOT BUY!!
We do not own satellite map imagery. The companies that fly satellites do. If you are not saving “small” areas for offline use for hiking then you will need PRO pack to cover “their” costs to do so for large areas. With PRO and an easy click of a button, you can save along any route or huge 1 gig tile areas! Also there are an unlimited set of outside tools to do mass map imagery prep publicly available which we cover in our courses.
If you are not willing to train or study on how to use this level of capability then go elsewhere! There are plenty of simpler less capable gps apps for less then $20 that solely record and care about “where you been”....we concentrate on “where you’re going” and provide an unmatched set of tools to do so.
We’re not building “cheap”....we’re building professional grade capabilities...and doing the best we can to make them available to the general public.
Thankfully the majority of our users, general outdoorsmen, off-roaders, first responders and our military brothers, see the benefit of PRO and our capabilities!
If you’re looking for backcountry application that uses tiles to zoom in and out this application will do that but very poorly better intended for racing preloaded maps and destination or Propack will get you what you need For us outdoorsman and we can avengers probably not the best app for us be sure to read all reviews on there forum You still have to import your own maps leadnav does not come with maps purchase the application for $20 then purchased the advanced subscription for an additional $30 not extremely impressed but I’m out 50 bucks might as well make use of it
