  • Horrible nagging experience every time you launch

    By Sir Geoffreys
    I paid for this app, not cheap, and expected to get a great experience once I paid. Wrong. Now every time I launch the app I get nagged not once, but twice and sometimes three times to register and logging “for my benefit”. I have politely declined this day after day and it does not stop nagging. I am offshore with no internet most of the time - marine navigation app, go figure -and think it’s totally out of line to spam the app every time I need to use it.
  • Boater Scam

    By 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.
  • Disappointing

    By Honolulu Tom
    I am disappointed in this app. The android version ($14.99) has time distance and speed where this app (54.99) doesn't. I wish I could get a refund.
  • Good app but bait and switch

    By 537425
    I purchased the app years ago for my iPad and it worked well. I paid a healthy fee I believe close to $100. Now I'm being prompted suddenly to renew a annual subscription for some features such as automatic routes. This is new and in my opinion shouldn't be allowed it's bait and switch buyer beware.
  • Facebook

    By W.L.C.
    Why in a million years would I want Facebook integration in a marine navigation application....?.
  • Save your money

    By Can't think of one.....
    I bought this for my iPad from the App Store because I have the corresponding chart card for use in my Raymarine MFD. I wanted the ability to create and save routes at home. This doesn't work. The auto route function does nothing at all. There is no in app instructions or help button. Wish I could get my money back.
  • Slow autoplotting

    By The OtherWoman II
    On screen maps look great. Auto plotting routes is really slow, and that's at home on a very good wifi connection on a new iPad Air 2 with 128 GB. Tried to autoplot a 53 mile route from Ft Walton to Perdido Key, the app kept stopping and just showing a straight line, not on channel, going straight across land. After 4 tries, I broke the route into 2 pieces and it finally worked, although one part still took over 2 minutes to plot. Will see this weekend how it does when I take that cruise, and try to plot some other routes on a 3G OBTW - If you buy this HD version for iPad, be aware it isn't available on iPhone. For iPhone, you would have to get the non-HD version, for another $15 purchase...
  • Don't buy it

    By SanJuanBoater
    I bought this app before learning that the iPad WiFi doesn't have internal GPS. I bought an external Garmin GLO GPS Bluetooth device to fix that problem, but the Navionics app still shows an incorrect position. Dangerous when trying to use when boating. Navionics customer support gave a BS answer that stated that they don't test their apps! It is fraudulent to sell this product to iPad WiFi owners.
  • Nice App - could use some tweeks

    By Starkadh
    I use the app for general navigation and positioning our vessel over subsea targets. It works well for that. The ipad and a Bluetooth GPS can be readily moved and doesnt require a lot of setup. It could use a couple tweeks i think. Being able to place and name marks is very handy. It would be nice if you could put a range circle on a mark as well. It would also be handy if you could measure short distances in yards or fee, not just mile or nautical miles.
  • What have you done?

    By pw!642
    This was a great program, now it is so confusing, hard to use and impossible to do planning. Give me back the previous version, I am very unhappy.
