    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.
  • Poor maps for the Bahamas

    If you are looking to sail in the Bahamas then keep looking for another app. This one does not have any detail. :-(
  • DO NOT BUY - App Crashes And Now Will Not Start

    I was downloading quite a few maps so I could have them offline. While downloading the maps the app crashed on a regular basis, but would always restart. After I got about 50% of the Central and South America coastline downloaded the app again crashed and now when it starts no map appears and the app crashes again after 30 seconds or so. This is a very unreliable chart rendering program, which is unfortunate because Navionics provides some of the best maps available.

    Whether it is the IPad Boating or the Navionics card for Raymarine, getting a chart update is impossible. I get 70-90 % before it fails. Another 1-3 hours on anchorages WIFI wasted. I can download Everything else but not Navionics. Just send them the $95 every year and look for a cabled connection to try to make the download

    How are you guys blocking the reviews? Don't tell me you are afraid to release them. Eventually we will find out how to complain to Apple. I hope you will regret blocking them then
  • No tracking!

    I used to really like this app but it doesn't keep a continuous track on a longer passage. They tell me it's supposed to automatically save a current track and automatically start a new track when it reaches its waypoint limit. It doesn't, meaning I lose my tracking data. Repeated emails to support have gone unaddressed. No support, no fixing, I'm outta here. Use another app if you're doing longer passages.
  • Very good app.

    After planning a boat trip to the BVI, the app looks great and works great.

    Have used the app extensively the last year in the Western caribe. Found charts to be quite accurate. Never turn the chart plotter on anymore.

    This was purchased with ios4 and worked well but there were some good things missing. Since ios5 and the upgrades to Navonics the program has been mostly unusable in the South American charts. It will not load in and function without a constant connection and with a wifi connection it says often the connection failed! IMHO do not purchase this at this time. Just fired the program up again after about a month and it is an all black screen! Run don't walk away from this program!!!!
