App Reviews

  • lake depths are not accurate!

    By bacacred
    after researching several similar apps I bought this app thinking it would be useful when ice fishing an area for the first time. i used the app over a dozen times. it was wrong every time! it was off by 6ft to 15ft when on a lake with an average depth of 24ft. I was very disappointed to say the least. don’t waste your time or money on this app!
  • What happened???

    By schreinman
    Why do we have to renew? It was fine the way it was.
  • Don't buy if you're a fisherman

    By Roostertails47
    I like the idea of this app, but the contours and depths are so far off it's totally worthless for fishing. On one lake I fish it says there is a 20 foot deep hole but when I went there it's nothing but 9 foot deep, and the official survey of the lake says there is a max depth of 9 foot. Complete waste of money for any fisherman.
  • Already Paid

    By TN Xbow
    Paid for it a while back. Now I need to download a new lake and it wants me to pay again. Think I’ll pass this time. Seems strange that they change the rules after you pay the first time.
  • Ripoff

    By unhappyangler
    Paid $10 for this ap last year and now I have to pay again to get satellite images again. Screw that. I will get a different ap.
  • Not happy!!!

    By spinbag 48
    Where’s the off button??? My battery goes dead overnight. I’ve had many GPS’s all came with an off button. Idiots.
  • Super marine app

    By Seabumjoe
    Iwhile underway I keep this app open on my iPad to back up my chart plotters. The constantly updated charts are super accurate . Not overly intuitive to use, but neither is my Furuno or German.
  • Still a rip off!! The developer is a thief!

    By Louisiana Angler
    Get Fish Spots app instead, has all the FREE FEATURES navionics USED TO HAVE FREE BUT TOOK AWAY UNLESS YOU PAY AGAIN!!! I just turned on my navionics app to notice that the satellite information is no longer available. I bought this app for $10 a few years ago. When I had bought it, it came with these features. So now you're going to screw me and make me pay for the same features that I've already paid for??? What you're doing is wrong and most likely illegal and if nothing else, seriously unethical. You can't charge people for an app that has certain features then release an update that does not have those features and attempt to charge them to get the features back. I will report this app to the Apple App Store, the Better Business Bureau and my local states attorney for nefarious business practices. I won't be deleting this app because I already paid for it once and I won't pay for "premium "features that already came with the app when I paid $10 for the first time!!!!! Thieves!!!!!
  • Overall pretty good

    By Flup555
    Pretty good app with lots of options. The navigation in som cases guides you through shallow waters instead of guiding you around it (Miami Biscayne Bay Area). The navigation initiation requires a lot of clicks, cancel, then initiate, then start = too many clicks. Tides are available separately, but if the maps would take the tides into consideration, it would be amazing.
  • Always Tracking My Location?!?

    By JMB32!
    I don't understand why the App needs to track my location when I'm not using it. When I turn it on, I obviously get it, but not when I'm no where near the water and not using the App. In this age of heightened sensitivity to privacy, all of my other apps that need to know where I am have added a 'Only when using the App' to the Privacy>Location Services options so as users we have more control vs the binary Always/Never option you only have now. I hope you'll add one as well.
