It WAS a good little affordable app. Not anymore. They tried to add a lot of frills that are very poorly executed for a phone app, apparently only to justify an exhorbitant price increase. If you are considering this app, all you need to look at is how fast the overall rating has plummeted to only three stars. Pitiful. If you need the so-called "premium features" the developers are trying to push on this app, then hopefully you have the proper equipment and aren't relying on a phone! Avoid.

The Navionics Boating app has evolved into a premium navigation tool offering the latest technology in chart updates, overlays, planning, navigation features and more. It offers the same charting experience and value as our premium chart plotter mapping products Platinum+ and Navionics Vision+ at a competitive price point.

The map data in itself is phenomenal. Zero complaints on that. However, the app is extremely clunky and difficult to use. You can not turn (orient) the map. The markers don't read when the crosshairs are directly over them. For $50 a year, I expect the app quality to be much better.

To change map orientation displayed within the app. http://tinyurl.com/298s8zbn As for the markers, when the crosshairs are over them select the question mark for information. The app does display vertically or horizontally with the phone unless you have the option locked. Email help@navionics.com with SPK 10225 in the subject and we can assist.

Doubling the price is making me search elsewhere.. Your response that this has become a premium app is probably true, but it's running on a mobile device with an inferior GPS receiver. Especially in bad weather (no clear view of the sky under canvas or hard top). I dont trust the accuracy as a primary source of charting. So an app like this is more a novelty. Also, all those 'pink balloons', community edits which can't be removed are extremely annoying.

Disable Community Edits and/or ActiveCaptain icons under Menu>Map Options. Our charts are an aid to navigation designed to facilitate the use of authorized government charts, not replace them. Only official govn't charts & NTMs contain all information needed for the safety of navigation. As always, the captain is responsible for their prudent use.
