The chart plotter version is working fine on the boat, so l thought l am going to get a back up on my tablet. What a disappointment! This is constant struggle. First it was extremely difficult to register than it continued with difficult download of maps. Tried Navionics just for comparison, managed everything in minutes while on plan2nav l am still strugling with basic mods on a simple route. There is NO HELP MENU! Why? Great charts but the rest is crap. It is beyond help, it must go into the bin! :o (
Good basic navigation, cheap charts but big faults too Works pretty well, though certain functions need improving - need to be able to measure bearing and range from any point on the chart, not just current position. Recorded track accuracy could also be better. BIG PROBLEM FOR UK USERS - all tide data including the steams on the chart, sunrise, sunset, etc is shown 2 hours earlier than it should be, please fix ASAP! Latest: this won't be fixed until sometime in 2015! APP UPDATE 15 July 2015: Tide and astronomical data still broken, they really don't care!
Lost marks big fish Works after fresh download but marks gone and I saved ?
Can't recommend this software. Decided to give it a try for the "course up" feature that Navionics still doesn't have. Took several long attempts to register the app, can't access the chart catalog, extremely cluttered screen, and after 2 hours of fiddling with this app, I find it the most counter-intuitive app I've ever used. I've been using Navionics problem free for 2 years as a backup to a Lowrance chartplotter. Just wish it had "course/head up" feature like the Lowrance plotter.....
Huge stability problems After a round of not being able to buy a single map nor get the free trial the app decided to "initialize" forever. After a restart the app just crash/exit.
This app is a decent alternative to Navionics (better in some ways, worse in others).
