Boating US&Canada App Reviews

  • Good Map, Terrible App

    By Cuautzina
    The app is just about useless as whenever I scroll around the screen it takes me to my web browser for thunderforest terms of service. I can’t look at a new area and look around as this is constantly happening. I prefer inavx with the navionics charts.
  • Idea & features good but map accuracy most important

    By adubclub
    Hotspots, road & creek beds are good but most of the bathymetric data for the main lakes I fish in central Ohio are inaccurate, showing fish holding spots like drop offs and points invalid. Humminbird maps better.
  • Mediocre

    By MichiganBoat
    The app is great for reference. But I wouldn’t trust it to plot a route. It seems to revert back to old data (when the water was far shallower) but only when plotting a route on Lake St. Clair. Other than that its great. I really wish this didn’t happen.
  • Great navigation app! Needs Active Captain.

    By A. Puzzler
    I use this app for its excellent auto-routing capability, to determine reliable ETAs and distances, and (when I’m driving the boat while my husband showers, etc.) to make sure I’m on course and aware of necessary information. My biggest criticism is that there is not enough user/community data - we need more anchorages, docks, marinas, and reviews of same. We’re cruising now and I regularly find myself referencing AquaMap’s Active Captain data to find more options for places to dock/moor/anchor, and to read the helpful reviews to determine usefulness for our situation. PLEASE ADD Active Captain to your app. Also: PLEASE CREATE A LARGER CHARACTER FIELD FOR in-app user-entered site INFORMATION AND REVIEWS, it’s currently way to small. I’m wicked impressed with the accuracy of your auto-routing feature, thank you!
  • The only app that matters accept...

    By UhavLocation.AllUGet
    I love this app, and probably would not have completed the R2AK last year without its constant usefulness. I have however had a big problem with the app after I repurchased it this year. Every time I open the app, there are a couple dangerous screens that I have to navigate through, by declining to login. This is unacceptable. I do not need to login to use a map. And sometimes when I open the app it’s because I need to know the depth or tides NOW. Not a few screens later. I have not found a way to stop Navionics from asking me to login. I am not going to login. Please add a “turn off login” option under privacy in the menu. Thank you.
  • Dock to Dock

    By dmspgh58
    Great app for charts. Dock to Dock on an iPhone 6+ does not seem to work at all. Tried Chart viewer on MacPro laptop with no luck either. Only get a “No route found” message. Chart viewer frequently changes language also. Tried to Chat and get “No chat available in English” message
  • A good resource with some big annoyances

    By Pablo of Issaquah
    The is my chart plotter and basically a good one. A big annoyance is that while panning with one finger the screen arbitrarily zooms. Very very frustrating. I went to the Help section of the app and on the bottom there is a searchable web option. However, as soon as the keyboard appears, the keyboard disappears. Very strange behavior.
  • Good app

    By Hunt tree
    I Dishley get this app one star however after restarting my phone the version I purchased became up-to-date with full information and depth charts. The water levels are fairly accurate just adjust the depth if you have higher low water for the year.
  • Best money can buy

    By Capt Michel
    Absolutely wonderful I have been running boats for 35 years And I have used all programs And believe it or not I always end up using this app and gets Best Infos fast simple inexpensive. Highly recommended.
  • Not OK

    By Pw henderson
    I’m a pro boat captain. I originally paid the one time fee for this app. It’s not ok to renig on our deal and wipe my charts. For those paying annually, you could find yourself at sea and your charts suddenly wiped from your device at expiration. Happened to me. This is a safety issue and is unethical. I’ve since discovered there are other great chart apps.
