Just like everyone else I purchased this application in full and used it for less than a year before it started telling me that I needed to upgrade and pay more money for any functionality. Contacted the company and they told me that after a year they no longer can help with any functionality because of their licensing. Waste of money, scam, not working at all.
Purchased the pro version for Canada and US ,used it for a week and dropped my phone in water in bottom of my boat,I've got a replacement phone now do I have to pay for it again ?
I have bought three of these chart packs (UK, Iceland and Portugal) to use when big-ship cruising. As a lifelong sailor I feel the need to know exactly where I am and these charts fulfil this need perfectly! I have also used them (in conjunction with paper charts) to pilot my own small boat across the Wash and up the Severn Estuary in the UK where I made full use of the routing functions. When I consider that I can buy the chart pack for the entire UK for less than the cost of a single paper Admiralty Chart they are extremely good value indeed.
Used the lite version to try it out on a boating trip to Catalina from Long Beach. The route planning works phenomenally. GPS worked flawlessly until it was intentionally shut off in order to persuade me to purchase the full version, and only then was I promised full coverage. Being on the water I had no reception so I couldn't even use data to purchase the full app. It was an app design oversight that costed me GPS in the middle of planning a route back to mainland, over 3 hours extra transit time, and the unecessary consumption of extra fuel. Very disappointed the app was not forthright in this. Wish I knew ahead of time they would shut down the gps. App is dangerous to use unless you pay for it due to the unpredictability of when it drops gps. Be warned. Luckily we didn't run aground anywhere.
I had a question because I had to switch to a new phone and they very quickly got back to me within seconds with the answer. And it worked perfect excellent support!
Bought this app 35€ for the whole Sweden (I wanted only a small part of it). But most important: it says GPS service out of service!! GPS working ok with all other app and location service is granted to iboating (it was working fine with the lite version)... Support answered location service is surely not granted and that I have to check it, while I wrote 3 times already (here and by email) that it is granted!! Update: no answer anymore from support! Last update for everyone tempted with paying: support contribution was only to tell me I have a hardware problem. No discussion, no apologize nothing: just no answer anymore. My week sailing is over. Couldn’t get refund: top of useless and expensive expenses ever on the Google store! Just stick with the free version and don't give money to those guys!! Final update : I went in « NMEA instruments Set Up » and unticked the box « Use NMEA as GPS Source » and MAGIC : now position works ! Thanks again to the very useless support who don’t know anything about their app. Consider no support at all to help you if in trouble. And remember: google store allow refund only 2 days after purchase… Funny Update: support is now pretending I am responsible for having caused that failure!! What is the purpose of a trial version if it is not for testing all features (who are not very documented by the way)? And who is the specialist here? Lol. 1 thing sure: when you keep on saying the client's hardware is defective instead of looking for another cause, there is no chance to find out the trouble!
