Downloaded this app to my tablet since I was going to be using a buddies boat and he did not have a GPS installed. I put my tablet in one of those waterproof bags made for electronics and along with his cheap fish-finder, we were good-to-go. One major thing I found missing, that would be on a "real" GPS unit, was a specific "Mark" button. I kept thinking that there must be an easier way to add a mark. I'm in the habit of hitting the "Mark" button on my Humminbird when I hit a fish, especially when fishing new areas, to determine where fish maybe holding to structure. On my unit it automatically applies a label with a number and the numbers increment by one each time or you can change the label. It took me quite some time on the water with this app just to figure out how to add a mark. Once I finally figured that out, it was not an easy process to do it quickly. Because it takes as much time as it did, I often had to land the fish first, then try to add the mark and by that time I was quite a distance from when the fish hit. Seems like an instant "Mark" button (pushpin shaped!) would be an easy thing to add. Otherwise, it worked very well!
I was skeptical to purchase this app as my older Raymarine "Navionics" unit is not great. Much to do with the brightness and detail of charts. I have this full app running on my Galaxy Tab, and Samsung S6, charts are bright, fast loading and extremely sharp. Detail is suitable for retail such as me. I appreciate that Navionics allows us to use the same license on similar Android units. I really like that the program syncs between devices immediately (internet connection). One of the most innovative features is the Automatic Route, where you can select a POI, a mark, or a place on the chart and the program will workout the quickest route based upon the settings of your boat. Kudos! A tweak that I would like to see in the auto route is a setting to provide more room for those close depths/widths. Another tweak I would like to see is an easier way to enter Marks/routes/anchorages. I d would also like to sync favorites as it syncs routes, marks and tracks. Excellent program! UPDATE: Very pleased, the following could use attention. boat settings defaults to Powerboat, we select Sail. Automatic route selects caution areas when safer deep channel is only 100 yards away.
Used this app to navigate the Cambridge narrows was spot on and made our trip easy and stress free very accurate to my depth finder and buoy locations well worth the money
Love this app... or rather the outstanding chart detail. I have used others charts before finding Navionics! Love charts, details, and Bath charts, great for fishing and exploring new coves... Get it, you'll love it too! Great choice of Worldwide charts...
Buggy Update...synching data seemed to be the final fix. Working well now. Not crashing any more as reported below............... Still crashing when zooming out. Tried everything, cleard cache, freed ram, used the +,- to zoom, used pinch to zoom, zoomed in small increments, zoomed in large increments...always locks up and then crashes after about 5 zooms. This renders the ap useless.
Keeps showing my subscription expired! I use this app on two different devices and it keeps showing that the subscription expired on one of them. And it doesn't yet have Doc to Doc routing!
