  • Major Flaws

    By base733
    I am a current Navionics user having purchased maps and downloaded this App through iTunes for use on my iPad which I sync with my Raymarine E7 chart plotter. I have used the Caribbean, US, Canada and Europe Apps and have had a few issues I wanted to share.... 1) After using the App (Europe HD for example) and adding a waypoint manually by entering the Latitude/Longitude the entered waypoint position is different (I.e. The waypoint is actually not at the entered position) than what was entered when the waypoint is checked. This is a serious issue for navigation. (Edited to add that the waypoint position error occurred when building a route using entered waypoints as stated above, in case that detail helps.) 2) In the left hand route bar, add the Lat/Lon in a display for each waypoint on a route. This would help users plot waypoints that appear on charts or manually on their chart plotter when the app fails to sync automatically. 3) My Apps fail to sync and share routes when connected to my Raymarine E7 chart plotter. Both the App, the maps and the chip in the chart plotter are current, subscribed and up to date but I get an error message when the App attempts to sync.

    THIEFS!!!!! Great software, but they con you into buying the Ipad app claiming interoperability among devices, only to find out later that if you want the software on your iphone also you need to shell out another $20 bucks. They claim it is an HD vs- non-HD issue, but this is nonsense. You buy the expensive one. ($50) and then need to spend $20 more to use on your iphone. At best misguiding. At worst, and most probable, intentional con-move. BUYERS BEWARE. Reported to Apple"
  • ... this was once the greatest navigation app ... AVOID NOW!

    By WangenheimSv
    This has been by far the best navigation app. Pricey but worth it. However now they ask you on top to sign for a subscription with high annual fee on top. And they try to sell you the updates they get from the users for free as a goody! Avoid this rip off ... hopefully somebody creates waze for sailing navigation soon ...
  • Missing all charts

    By Attila50
    All of my charts for Europe have disappeared from the app, and now they want me to pay them again for the charts. I paid $55 for the app, and now to get Europe back I need to pay another $55. I’m sorry I ever bought this app; if I’d known they’d extort more money out of me I never would have even considered buying it.
  • Excellent sailing yacht maps!

  • Which school provided navionics people with geo knowledge?

    By user-app99
    This app is sold as "europe", but when did Denmark, Iceland and UK depart from Europe? Beats me.
  • Why are you removing Canary Islands from my map?

    By Rolivier
    I don't agree with this, I bought this map specially for the Canary Islands, now Navioncis has removed these islands with update ! No ! I'm going to contact the customer support !
  • Ok, but missing coverage

    By Juan Trippe
    We have been using this while cruising Holland and Belgium. There are large parts of Belgium which lack basic chart data such as bridge heights or locks. The charts seem much better for coastal areas. Also the weather function sound good, but has not been very accurate with respect to current conditions. Overall, this is a helpful app for planning, but not your main nav tool. For the price it is worth it. For the canals in Holland the ANWB app is much better.
  • Stockholm Sweden use on power and sail boats

    By jwcollard
    This is a good app. We used it last year on a power boat on the iPad 1 with no gsm card installed. We were able to skip using the bulky charts on many occasions and instead relied on a marine gps and this app. The first iPad was a little slow but r This year we are using the iPad 3 and it is so wonderful we even skipped the gps.
