  • Not user friendly

    By North Miami Boater
    There is no explanation of how to create a waypoint. App doesn’t seem to work well with iPad. Have not found any tutorials on how to use it. Can someone help, please?
  • It’s great

    By Chickennipples
    Great app
  • Worked perfectly on Thurmond

    By sandy boater
    Highly recommended
  • Includes lake contour maps

    By vivekboat
    This app includes both HD lake contour maps and coastal navigation charts. Maps are all vector and respond very well to touch. Moving map gps auto follow is a toggle button. The best part is that it shows the path one has taken with a dark line and where you are headed with dotted line. Easy to share your tracks and routes with others as gpx files.
  • Seriously useless with out a legend.

    By Curtis.ramirez
    This app really needs a legend. Somewhat useful but not enough to rely on going offshore to fish.

    Very hard to navigate not user friendly
  • Missing a big lake

    By not happy boater
    I bought this app to help me on my vacation with Walloon Lake in northern Michigan and it is not on any chard’s! It’s a huge and very well known lake. I don’t understand how this is not available on your app. I would not bought this app if I would have known that this is not a complete representation of lakes .....
  • Very disappointed

    Bought the USA maps and there is a big blank area which just so happens to cover the two lakes I fish most. They are listed on the lake list, this is why I bought it. This app is useless to me, I’d like to get my money back for that no count map.
  • Very disappointed

    By CAT117
    I thought this seemed like perfect app for me since I take my boat all over to many lakes in my home state and other states, some far away. So I paid for the upgrade to get all US LAKES. And that was last week. Then this weekend we decided to go boating on the chain of lakes. So imagine my surprise when the app doesn’t even know the lakes exist. I thought ok I’m sure it will work once we get to a larger lake on the chain. Nope. Shows the boat on dry land. So I’m not happy. Wasted $20 for maps that don’t even know that some of the lakes I want to go on exist. I know that there are GPS units that have inland lake maps for pretty much every boatable lake but this app with US lakes is not it. Sorry for rating. I wanted this to be GREAT and thought it would be.
  • Severely dissatisfied.

    Got a new phone and all my charts are gone and the only option I am given is to purchase them again. Severely dissatisfied.
