This application is great. Maps are downloaded to the device which allows it's use in the backcountry when the device is in airplane mode. GPS tracks the current boat position. This is an awesome tool for anglers to use to see potential hotspots and structure. This, paired with a fishfinder will let you to quickly obtain over the fish. Very fast and responsive as well. Customer help is excellent. I had a little issue with my registration key that was fixed instantly with an email to the company. Highly recommended.
The "free" application only allows for one download area. I downloaded the wrong zone and now it won't allow me change it. I even uninstalled the application and still no go. If you wish to charge for an application just do it up front.
I bought this application a year or so ago. It was good. Fresh phone and I seemed to have to buy it again or at first. So for anyone else in this situation: eventually I was able to download a fresh chart. But it still showed as show (green on the map) the charts I had on my old phone. Went into the settings and deleted all the charts. Only then could obtain the old charts back. Now it is amazing again :)
The download for trial is totally bogus. It downloaded Oregon USA as soon as I opened app. I am in Fresh Zealand. No idea why it did this. Won't allow me delete the bogus map and begin again. Totally counter intuitive. Seems I am not the first one with this problem.
Unfortunately, an absolute SCAM! Help is non-existent! Bought this application from their www service in August of 2018. Used it for 2 months and the registration key became invalid, the application is no longer registered. I am no longer able to use the application at all! Tides and Currents function also does not work. UPDATE: Contacted help 6 times. They only responded after I filed a charge-back. They disabled my license key and threatened me with legal. Other apps are so much better.
This application is awesome for the price. Does everything I could ever need and is easy to operate. Customer service gets A+ rating after helping me resolve the problem of reinstalling the application on a fresh device and restoring paid status. They had me up and running in minutes... and that was at midnight, eastern time! 👍
I search this application very useful for bass fishing. The lake contours are accurate where I am using it in Central Florida, and it shades depth zones much better than my Garmin echoMAP Chirp 93sv, making it much easier to identify structures and offshore flats. Connecting it with a Dual Universal Bluetooth GPS Reciever helps me obtain the boat near the spots I identify, but note I specify near. Once I'm near I turn to my Garmins to pinpoint, scan and tag the spot. It's $20 well spent.
Application requires purchase for any detail even to view. They let one "square" download for free... However (and maybe it was the river in the system, a huge navigable river which has plenty of charts available on it) the detail for the river WAS NOT THERE. It showed a primary geometric outline for the river and no depths.
The only issue for me is that every time I press auto follow or something like that it says that I'm using the lite ver and to upgrade(even though I already purchased it) and when I go to do that it gives me an error saying I have to log on the my Google play account. If any one knows how to fix it plz allow me know.
Ken Been searching for an application that does what this one does or years. The tracking and route platforms are super! The lines for both routes and tracks are wide - simple to see and the system of staying on the track is so nice easily seeing the boat direction by a long dashed line - so simple to a adjust boat direction. Best of all you can email with questions and suggestions with very fast responses. Some of my suggestions will even be implemented in future upgades. They even hurried up adding a lake for me.
But they have created the Detroit river a hot mess. Lots of missing detail necessary to safe navigation (underwater obstructions and pilings) and lots of F(null)R and items like that. Would be not an problem if I could switch back to the official charts when I need them. Downloaded another application to obtain that functionality back. (Correction: They're there, they're just barely possible to see when you're outside because there's about zero contrast, rendering them absolutely pointless. I sent emailed pictures with rough lat longs comparing the difference between the competing application and this one to their help team)
The ability to download and use the maps offline and use the smartphone GPS is amazing, it puts my on board GPS to shame for only 15 bucks! The latest modernize changed the application a bit but the amazing and quick customer help has me appreciate it even more, and the fresh maps flow together seamlessly.
This is a amazing app. I mostly use it around the Ozello Keys, FL and it gets me through them with no worries. I have recommended this application to all my boating family and mates and they are as thrilled with it as I am. You can't go wrong with this one.
Still not simple to search gps enabled PDFs but luckily CT has converted all state park maps. Hopefully other states will follow. Some really interesting maps (free :) available at the store. One of my favorites is an 1896 USGS topo. A lot of of the hiking trails around here were once 'major' roads. Beautiful cool.
Nice app. Thanks for the nav features. Please add the option to disable the compass, and reley in filtered GPS positioning for a real track/heading. The compass is useless in quick moving and constantly tilting applications. I use the application to display airspace maps when flying, and the heading information is completely useless. I'm not sure how it would behave on eg. a quick mountain bike etc, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who suffers from useless compass information. A easy filtered GPS based heading feature will create the moving map a lot more useful for lots of various applications.
Wasn't initially impressed with this application until getting out of cell range and having a trail map downloaded that I normally have a paper ver of. Having my zone shown instantly on the map was so helpful compared to trying to guess based on trail intersection names and numbers
Came back to Avenza after trying others. My use is basic: Plot my zone on a zone enabled pdf I download. Don't use the application to push map sales. Just create the most usable utility for this purpose for a reasonable price. Avenza does this. May it hold doing it.
Seems to be the industry standard for viewing and navigating with georeferenced pdf's, the Android device ver is much better than apple (can zoom in farther). Things that would be super cool to add: editing lines, various icons for point features, and the ability to navigate from your zone to a point (measure tool works adequately for this, but not the best) related to a Garmin GPS's "goto" feature
Amazing program that I use everyday as a public lands manager. Very nice to make a fast map GIS map outlining the day's projects and send it to all the private devices of our techs/contractors. My largest problem is it needs a "SHARE" function. We often share maps in the field using bluetooth/air drop to send to each other since we work in non-signal areas. However it is time consuming and sometimes ineffective to find through intelligent device file managers to search the PDF and send it to another user. Every intelligent application has a share feature, often times for useless info. This application needs a easy share button to be able to share the current PDF map. Thanks!
Amazing application and always enjoyed using it. However recently it has stopped auto tracking unless the application is actively running (ie screen is on and application is on the forefront.) Previously it would track when screen was locked and application was running in the background. Please correct this problem
When you're out in the wilderness you don't have a connection and don't wish to waste battery trying to connect. With the phone on flight mode I rely on what is in the phone. That's where this application is amazing as the maps and functionality work well offline.
Updated review for newest ver as of 12/14/2018: Fresh ver has tracking controls used while recording your route. The controls take up half the screen, limiting your ability to see what's on the screen, especially when zoomed in. Would be nice if they could be minimized/hidden. Fresh ver also seems to drain my phone battery much faster than before, even when in airplane mode. Now limits number of maps I can import. Unblock the feature for $29.99 a year? What a bunch of BS.
