    Straight out of the box, what you pay for is great. Worth every penny. It is amazing how much this app has helped me on the water. I can fish new water, know all the hazards, channels, depth, submerged's awesome. Buy it. You can map all day long with your sonar or you could use this app and break the lake down alot faster.

    Bought and downloaded the app. I don't know why I don't actually see it in my app drawer which is annoying that I have to come to the play store each time, search it and click it. I will give it five stars if it actually does it because the app itself is great! helped my find great spots for fishing! Full Review

    The app is cluttered with inaccurate information and icons even after turning off the community edits. I would give it 5 stars if I could have just a base chart with all of the necessary detail of the government chart and the ability to turn on layers of accurate info about fuel docks and services. That said, the sonar charts make the app worth the subscription. Full Review

    Noah Cooper Published date: December 18, 2017

    For a phone app I would say it is not bad. Usually the depth accuracy is with in 3 or 4 feet of where you are. The only thing that I do not like that I was not aware of is that purchasing the app only gives you a 1 year subscription. I found this very disappointing due to the fact of how much I payed for it. I would have most definitely given this app 4 stars if it was a one time purchase. Full Review

    Darren Troseth Published date: December 15, 2017

    I was an early adopter of this app. It is great for fishing and boating. Not a fan of the pricing structure and that I've paid for the app twice now on same platform and now they have removed features on the app that I already paid for (satellite overly). It's a simple Google coding thing. I'd say it's worth it, but no love to the early adopters. Based on other reviews I've read, I'll get a canned response from Navionics about legacy upgrades lost support blah blah blah, many companies will use a grandfathered system and reward those that got in early. Not so much here. I paid for satellite overlay and you took it away. No app ive ever paid for has done that to me. Only Navionics. Full Review

    Nate Gieser Published date: December 23, 2017

    Only issue is having to buy the app every year since your subscription expires is a downfall. Id say if im spending $10-$15 for an app I shouldnt have to pay for it more than 1 time. Full Review
