  • Daily Download stopped working

    By BillBarr
    I am running 14.6 on iPhone with IOS 13.2 The daily download keeps saying “Your maps are up to date” and no longer updating. I have reloaded the iPhone operating system. I have deleted then reinstalled Boating plus reloaded my offline maps. I really need this to work. I have been using Navionics products for many years and am very disappointed. I contacted support and got the usual “you must be a stupid consumer” set of same old FAQ answers
  • What happened to the basic charts

    By upqmnb
    Have the app for a few years and I just went on to look at something. Now I just have a basic map with no details no markers.
  • Active Captain clutter

    By fed up with improvements
    Update 10/30/19 I cannot find anywhere that states whether headings displayed are Magnetic or True. There is nothing to indicate magnetic variation to convert between Magnetic/True. Showing lines of magnetic variation is a standard nav chart feature, sadly lacking in these charts! Dec 2018 review: 1) Consider all the reviews complaining about the hidden subscription fees incorporated here by reference. It must be getting old having to copy and past the same tired explanation into every review. 2) I have loved the Navionics app for a few years. Now, the chart is cluttered with mostly meaningless, redundant or otherwise unnecessary Active Captain comment symbols. There needs to be a way to eliminate those entirely so the chart can be seen unobstructed by this clutter. 3) Recently, the app gets repeatedly hijacked and obscured by a prompt to download USA charts (I assume) that I no longer need, and centers the chart over “Coos Bay” on the coast of Oregon. This is a hazard when attempting to navigate and it is necessary to click on “Later” and reposition the chart back to the Caribbean. It does this repeatedly- like every time the app is accessed! I’ve already downloaded the charts for the area where I am navigating. If there were other charts needed for where I am, it would be obvious and I could do so by going into the settings. THIS IS DANGEROUS AND THIS OBSTRUCTING PROMPT NEEDS TO STOP!
  • Forced trial upgrade? Is that a bug?!

    By TEDfan22
    Infrequent user, just opened up the app. There is a wall that I cannot get around without accepting the “15 day free trial” upgrade. I touched “learn more” and it didn’t let me get past the wall. The only other option I see is to catch “free trial“. Seriously, this must be a bug. But since I didn’t see an update in the App Store, I deleted the app. There’s no way I’m gonna click free trial and then have to cancel it later to prevent a charge to my card; something easy to forget. It’s up to you guys, but this seems like a bad decision to force it, If you are dedicated to solving for customer value/POV.
  • Perfect!

    By Joeyconrad2005
    This app is perfect for the weekend boater and is pretty affordable......$15 for the year. It lets me add waypoints and points of interest before I even leave the house. It’s very nice price wise compared to other navigation charts that are $100. Great app! I recommend! However, the autorouteing doesn’t seem to work :(.
  • Lost my Trust in Navionics.

    By MaireSF
    I have been meaning to write this review for a long time. Years ago, I purchased Navionics Marine Western USA app for about $25. At the time, I wanted a simple app for tide tables and water depths to use around the SF Bay Area. I love walking into expansive shallow stretches of sun-glistening water and this app allowed me to locate ideal areas and plan dazzling mid-afternoon walks over the shallows, accessing caves or viewing marine life. For that purpose, the app worked perfectly. However, when I tried using it in real time when boating, it was sluggish as I attempted to zoom in-and-out or move around on the map. The iPhone screen was also simply too small to be practical. For optimal usage, use a 9-10”or larger tablet with the best specs you can afford. My primary gripe is that Navionics charges a moderately high price, but has discontinued and renamed apps during IOS upgrades, leaving users stuck with an obsolete app and confused as to how to proceed. I have no problem paying a reasonable charge to cover the cost of upgrades, but I expect transparency as to how long my app will be supported along with a seamless upgrade process. I think it is very fishy when developers repeatedly engage in the practice of completely renaming apps. I will overlook this practice once for novice developers, so long as they give reasonable advance notice and make the upgrade easy. But Navionics is yet again renaming apps! Why should I trust them? Particularly, now that there are more competitors? This kinda stuff really gets me tempted to pull together some of my smartest friends in the valley to code an open-source version.
  • Aquaholic - NOT TO HAPPY

    By Aquaholic371
    I’m not to happy, because you charged me twice amounts for a update, I have to report that to my credit card bank.... NOT TO HAPPY Now I’m very happy, because this problem has been resolved..... was my own fault because I buy the same update twice by mistake.
  • UI is terrible

    By exdxmx
    Perhaps the worst use of standard UI gestures of any iPad app I have ever used.
  • Paying for it twice?👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 save your money

    By Jlfishing
    I bought this app and it was fine and I did the update and it took away my shaded depth. And now wants me to spend more money to get it back! No thank you !
