  • Tech support-poor

    By three gs
    The new upgraded version of this app does not work properly. Automatic routing has bugs and tech-support is not willing to knowledge them.
  • Ok, it’s just okay

    By CaptCatSailor
    Third year of using the App, it’s great for at a glance planning. Maybe some weather and a little helpful on routing. Just updated to the latest because the location specific apps are being sun-setted. The charts are ok, sometimes better than others sometimes worse. Have anchored on land according to charts in the southern San Blas at times for example. The biggest problem that hasn’t been addressed in the last 3 years is the initial chart down load. You pay for a region or chart then are forced to down load in pieces or squares. That works fine on fast connections. As a world traveler, a download all button even if it downloaded the same pieces would save hours and hours pinching and “requesting download” of pieces of the region. After every piece you have to re-zoom and go find the boundaries of what has already been downloaded. Downloading the pacific charts is going to take a few days of perseverance at the local watering hole. Ugh. It’s fine to have the selective download, but ALSO include a “gimme what I paid for” (ALL) option as well. That will run without having to have the app open and babysat the entire time. For comparison I use C-Map, Garmin and all kinds of public charts in OpenCpn and my “eyes” as most electronic charts are off at one time or another. 15,000 miles from Atlantic, Caribbean, to southern Chile, Pacific is next.
  • Fraud alert

    By Hawkeye956
    Stay away and do not waste your money. Do not get scammed. There are better nautical charting values available for the iPad. I spent a lot of money for both the USA/Canada and the Caribbean/South America apps. They were very, very expensive for apps but included lifetime chart updates. Now I find out that Navionics has completely destroyed my investment in these apps and forced me to go to a subscription service, with absolutely no consideration for my previous investment. This is extremely aggravating, and the very worst of business practices. All they are doing is gouging their customers for more money. This is not only unacceptable, but borders on fraud. The only reason they get one star, is you can’t select less.
  • I paid for your app

    By SXY BST
    Now you sent me an update that doesn’t work do I have to pay for The update your app keeps sending me to restore purchase and then won’t recognize my email
  • Scammed

    By SDMinnesota
    Sold as a one time fee which was pretty hefty. Now they want monthly revenue. You should have honored your original commitment. .
  • Charged for this unwanted app

    By fephill
    Not happy with the operation of this app tried to cancel and get refund no luck through apple.
  • Rip Off

    By Npape
    Discontinuing one expensive app only to charge for another is either genius or criminal. Probably both.
  • Not a one time pay app like they said.

    By Latzj20
    I have been using this app for about three years now. I bought it when it was offered at a one time buy. But for the past week, my maps and all the depth contours that were once included have no longer worked. My pins are still available but the lakes will no longer load when I zoom. The basic outline is there but only in straight lines. Very disappointing. I’ve emailed the support team. I’m hoping this is just a glitch and not something I have to pay again and again for like the app is asking me to do. If so I’m going a different route.
  • Simply wrong data

    By None00000000000000000
    Pending a more on site contact, I can say that the depth data shown on my home lake - Lake Ouachita - in Arkansas, is seriously in error. It shows the slip where I moor my houseboat to be in 25’ of water. In August the depth at the shallow end of the slip was knee deep and is never more than about 8’ when lake levels are highest. I will write more after the next time I am there and can take exact location depths. Disappointed.
  • Active Captain clutter

    By fed up with improvements
    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!
