Noisy video ad I don't go outdoors to be subjected to noisy ads with militaristic video content. Don't see an ad free version available to buy. Will evaluate in the field but will probably delete. No great loss because map and compass are still necessary in the mountains where I usually hike. GPS signal is unreliable there.
Useless Took 5 attempts to download 1 map and have it work, after having to uninstall and reinstall due to 3 map download limit only to discover that the map is useless. The purpose of a downloading a map is to be able to use it where you have no signal. The map only works for cities and doesn't cover the desert area I need. Make terrain maps for download. So now that I burnt through 1Gb of data for what amounts to nothing....thanks for nothing. Please fix.
Okay, but... While other GPS Apps ultimately acquire Satalite, this App seems to take forever. This burns off precious battery life. When it finally does get its bearings, it works well. However when my celfone goes to sleep, to conserve energy, and later wakes to check my coordinates, the Satalite acquisition problem starts all over again.
Don't waste time and data - in response to your reply- An app which must be paid to use is not free. If advertised as free I consider what you're doing to be false/misleading advertising. It's MARINE navigation. If you can't use it to navigate on water then it's a lie to get people sucked in. Be honest and offer a month trial and call it a free trial but don't give me a glorified copy of google maps and call it marine nav free. Without depths it's not marine navigation it's a paid app. Sick of liars here. Back to honest navionics HD
Hiking GPS. Navigation. Excellent GPS app. I've been using Polaris for several months for hiking trails and finding my favorite fishing spots and haven't found any problems. The waypoint compass is excellent!
Great Guidance Free App This app is great for true navigation. It works as a compass, altimeter, speedometer, etc.. The only thing I do not used it for is direction from point to point.
