Boating user reviews :

Love the app, great charts, it’s a must have for boaters. But for Fs sake can we get an option to fully exit and shut off the GPS? I about have to reboot my phone to shut this thing off. EDIT: As their reply shows, there is no way to completely exit the app while trying to exit the app. This is especially true when the app is linked to a chart plotter. You have to go into menus, disable communication with the device, and/or stop routes in order to have the privilege of exiting the app.

  • If the GPS is running in the background, tap the ROUTE button then STOP at the bottom of the chart screen (this will stop navigation ) you may also go to Menu>Your Name>Log Out to stop live navigation. If still having trouble, choose Submit Feedback from the Menu and reference SPK6612 in the subject. An agent will assist.

DANGER. When you zoom out, dangerous reefs can entirely disappear. The shading should obviously reflect the shallowest point in each pixel, but it seems to reflect the average. I have had a route that looks fine but when zoomed in would have taken me right onto a reef. This should be fixed rather than just “appreciated”. Otherwise you will be responsible for killing someone. And “use paper charts” is a weak response, everyone relies on your software.

  • Anthony, we are sorry to hear this. Please contact us from within your Boating app Menu-Submit Feedback, referencing case #SPK6560, with a screenshot: and coordinates of the area you are mentioning, so we can immediately investigate your situation. Thank you and have a nice day!

Brilliant. Tells me everything I need to know about what’s going on under the water. It allows me to save courses and record tracks. My last 18 months of sailing is all captured in the tracks; essential a logbook. Running a track is also great for when sitting on anchor- an instant record of whether or not you’re dragging. The app is worth every cent – I’ve renewed three times now.
