The $99. “AIS Live” addition to iNavx’s product line is useless for boaters who do not have a live internet connection away from the dock. This is not mentioned in the above promo for the product. BUYER BEWARE!

Have to buy and if I’m going to spend $55 for charts I’ll just pay the same for Navionics app. Spent 20 minutes trying to use and find charts for Ensenada BC Mexico and frustrated. Really want a refund.

Jbaffoh's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
Ordinarily, this is the best marine nav app available (tho I’ve been asking for features in this latest update since the app was first released in the dark ages). Unfortunately, these long-overdue changes killed my ability to see my $90 Navionics charts (for which I was charged full price instead of the usual renewal price—but that’s another story). DO NOT UPDATE UNTIL THEY FIX THIS!
Jacorn's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
The system of downloading and viewing charts could be much better. Seems outdated to me, aviation apps such as ForeFlight can sync multiple maps and charts on one single view.
Chichiflys's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
I bought it on sale for $5. You get what you pay for on this app for sure. Don’t understand all the hype. Downloading charts is second rate. You either have to download a very large area, e.g. USA East, or painstakingly select one chart at a time, after having to constantly get into download mode and scrolling through all the charts. Could easily be solved by allowing the user to randomly select different charts at one time once in the download section. Then since the char5s do t automatically scroll you have to pick a chart to use. Not smooth and seamless. Going back to Navionics or I may try the $8 Nautical, which allows better downloads and automatic scrolling of charts.

I can not easily add a start point and an end point to chart a path or find out the distance... not useful for plotting a course
AlasCat's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
I like the reference to original charts, but I find the interface to be a bit clunky moving between charts and zooming. On the other hand, it’s pretty obvious where the information is coming from compared to some of the other charting apps. This is a good app to have in conjunction to one of the other vector-based charting apps.

I downloaded and even at $5 it’s a waste of money. Played with it for an hour, tried all local charts available and garbage whole thing always defaults to useless world map. This is non intuitive, not useful. Donate $5 to charity instead DO NOT PURCHASE. Fyi. I have owned a marine business for the last ten years. I have delivered vessels from Canada to San Diego. I have been a liveaboard for 18 years. I know boats and the water. This is the worst thing I have ever seen and they want me to spend another $100 to get a half way decent map....NO THANK YOU. CHeck out the competition on the App Store. Garmin and others, just beware I NavX. You’ve been warned.
master of ussv Alisande's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
Having used this app from Maine’s midcoast to Eastport I find it accurate and easier to see on my iPad than the presentations on chart plotters costing 30X times more. Plugging in an external battery with a solar panel or running a charging cable out to the nav station allows for extended cruises.

Captain Kandu's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
Found iNavX to be very reliable and accurate everywhere we went, French Polynesia to N Australia, Indonesia to India, Red Sea through Mediterranean, Cape Verde to the South American Giuanas, Southern Caribbean to Panama, now up the Central American & Mexican Pacific coast. I highly recommend it as a compliment to a chart plotter. Charts for our B&G chart plotter are expensive so I don’t buy them and just use the generic world chart that comes free with the chart plotter. I subscribe to the iNavX Navionics charts per region as needed, and then plan my routes on iNavX, with all its visible detail, and transfer the waypoints to my chart plotter. I use iPhone 6 Plus but maybe a tablet, with its larger screen, would be better. Be great if someday PredictWind GPX’s could somehow be imported and managed.

Cdrpilot's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
The developers have just about ruined this once fantastic app. Navionics charts for iPads are $50 more than for iPhones! AIS Live is not live unless you have an AIS unit or radio installed on your vessel. Charts have shot up in price. Pop-ups and surveys have added to the misery. At one time I advocated this app to all my navigation students; now I tell them there are better alternatives. What a shame!

AKSailor's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
We have used various versions of iNavX since it was launched many years ago. We used an early version while sailing in our home waters of Alaska. We used it down through Canada and into Mexico. We used it across the Pacific to Fiji and back to French Polynesia. We think that it's easy to use and stitches charts seamlessly. No nav program is any better than the charts for your area. Mexico has terrible charts, US and Canada have great charts, and many South Pacific countries have so-so charts. If your cruising area is well charted then iNavX will provide excellent navigation. Many of its features are better than our dedicated plotter's so it's worth owning and using.

Tiki Rich's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
I really cannot understand the recent (and few) negative reviews... I am slipped in the Santa Cruz, California small craft harbor. I have 20 year old integrated Raytheon electronics (fish finder, radar, chart plotter) and following the tsunami that hit our harbor, I lost the chart plotter functionality. Knowing that to replace my integrated system would cost me over 10K, I 'rolled the dice' and downloaded INavX to 'temporarily' replace the plotter as I was not prepared to haul out, $$$, etc. Well, over two years later I still am not planning a haul out for electronics as... I now am very satisfied with my IPAD/INavX next to my radar and fish finder. I currently have all my fishing and important navigation coordinates loaded and adding new ones regularly with a tap of the stylus. In actuality, don't even miss my old chart plotter... Thank you INavX... Captain Rich Bonny-Matit

in th blue's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/28/19 1:47 PM
I really wanted to use this app on my iPAD 9.7 (latest generation), however I can not get any Navionics/NV/Explorer charts in a short store. This store shows only iNAVX AIS application nothing else. I tried to contact iNAVX (Jim was support person) and he suggested to reload the app from the app and use the latest version 5.5.1 build 1141. I did it and still no navionics charts. So i sent mail to Jim but he disappeared completely. So there is no customer support there. I hope that Jim still alive. NOAA charts working good, but they are not quilted so there is not much use of them, unless it is short one-day sail. Regarding the price of Navionics charts. For some reason INAVX force users to purchase Navionics charts, even user has account with Navionics and already paid for the charts. So iNAVX tries to make some money on a side, however they charge twice as much as navionics. So question is, why I would purchase iNAVX when i can use NAvionics app directly. Besides it perfectly synchronize with chartplotters and can create waypoints and routes. Navionics update their charts constantly, so they always up to date. Regarding “instrument” feature. It is so flimsy, i can not believe. There are many apps which will show ALL N2K and MNEA0183 data in much better format (look on SignalK.org for example) Other features quite much useless as well. Weather - who is using Theyr weather ? Predict Wind become industry standard and now supported by all major MFD players - Navico, Garmin, Raymarine, Furuno. Another great weather app is LuckGrib. Gives everything what NOAA weather chart give plus weather forecast. Anchor? Really are you measuring rode length in miles? Usually it feet, fathoms or meters. I am measuring depth of the water on miles only way off-shore. Also there tons of FREE anchor apps like Anchor (really great app). Regarding quilted charts - users may use NV-USA. They give entire quilted east cost charts for free. Tides - there are millions FREE tides apps as well. AIS for $99? Seriously? Most of the modern VHF radios, MFD,etc support AIS, besides you need to by AIS receiver. anyway. One good thing - this app still works on iPhone, but I would like to see who will seriously navigate 35+ foo boat by using iPhone? So this app was great at the beginning, but as others mentioned become worse and worse with each release. Looks like the development was shifted off-shore and we all know what will happen next. What is really entertaining that development always shows thumb up for good review and ignore negative reviews. With all of these i guess this app will join the list of badly written apps without support. Good-bye iNAVX

jbuck387's Review of InavxReviewed on 8/12/18 12:31 PM
While the app has a decent number of features the chart function is extremely not intuitive. The fact that every chart must be downloaded separately (around 8 for the Jacksonville, FL area alone), and swapping between charts in small area is difficult at best, is a very significant hindrance to this app. As a long time user of iPad aviation Apps like Foreflight, I expected marina nav apps to be similar. I may switch to Navionics, I've been told they download a more global chart.
Cappygeelo's Review of InavxReviewed on 7/8/18 3:12 PM

CryoDunce's Review of InavxReviewed on 7/31/18 10:21 AM
As far as I can tell, the app is useless unless you buy a subscription to one or more chart providers ($80 per year for the US). This is in addition to the app purchase price. I tried to read the lengthy user manual but it only displays partial pages on my device. They do have very slick marketing though.

Looks great, but to get Canadian shore of Lake Huron cheapest is $79. It’s a Subscription, so I assume they would make me pay more down the road for the same map. During my vacation I pretty much stay on chart 2257. The paper chart is $20. There needs to be a way to pay $20 to get THE ONLY CHART I NEED. Instead it’s $79 at the cheapest. And the paper chart is all I need. Maybe one day someone will offer that option. Until then I wasted $14.99 for this app at least it wasn’t $50.

I like the charts this app uses but am not at all impressed with the UI. The UI for selecting the appropriate chart is particularly clunky. I find it takes me a number of tries every time to get the gestures right for to create or edit a waypoint. It works well to create routes in another app and import them into inavx. I use Open CPN on a Mac laptop for planning. This works much better for creating routes.

As a long time user of iNavX, I am now finding the that the app has become totally useless, for the same reasons stated in the post by David Jade above. The developers are seemingly bent on destroying this previously excellent app... There is no longer a way to easily update the charts; the "Adhoc" WiFi connection to Coastal Explorer on a PC is broken etc. etc.
TxnMariner's Review of InavxReviewed on 5/7/18 3:26 PM
I will never buy another marine navigation app. iNavX has proven to be just as accurate as any instruments we have in the wheel house while offshore so I would recommend it to anyone who works offshore. My only complaint is you cannot rotate the charts using your iPhone. The charts only rotate using the iPad. Add that one feature to the iPhone and it easily gets ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! Updated Review - Still 4 Stars but adding AIS Live to the mix for the ridiculous cost of $99.00/year is a bit much. Sure “MarineTraffic” has a bit of a delay, but it’s free - for essentially the same thing. Mariners should have a more affordable option after spending actual money on iNavX.
Shaun415's Review of InavxReviewed on 4/17/18 3:31 PM
I’ve tried them all and iNavX is the only one I use. I’ve used it sailing in San Francisco and open ocean racing, iNavX’s comprehensive feature set and access to all the charts I need clearly sets it apart. It’s accurate, easy to use, I love the AIS overlays - highly recommended!!!
Schooner Joe's Review of InavxReviewed on 3/8/18 9:45 AM
Fair warning to all of you going for months without interent service. If your ipad has to update the app or the OS, all charts without a current subscription will be deleted. Furthermore, if the charts are not currently subscribed to, they will be unavailable though still occupying memory. You are not buying a chart. You are buying ACCESS to a chart for 12months! One of those things I learned the hard way. Wasnt allways like this. I usually updated charts when i had the time and good bandwidth. Traverse changed things a few years ago and it has gone downhill. I've used this app for close to ten years, literally, around the world. And it works well. It is clunky and inefficient espacially for route planning and configuration at times, but it works.I have a dedicated ipad just for navigation. I do not update the OS nor the app just so I dont lose the charts and still, they dont work after expiration. I'm looking for a new alternative.
Breezotoo's Review of InavxReviewed on 3/8/18 3:22 PM

I find that having to load and switch back and forth from chart to chart is not seemless enough. I used "Charts" app on the iPhone 5 but had to go with a new app with the iPhone 7 IOS 11. I recently went to the Bahamas and there were no NOA Charts of any detailed scale.

webbwebs's Review of InavxReviewed on 12/27/17 6:03 PM
There was a time that this was, hands down, the best app available for iOS. The originator, Richard Ray, worked pretty much non-stop on the app to make sure it was the beat it could be. Sure, there might be an occasional glitch. But it ALWAYS ran and did the job. Today, I can’t even get it to load, without crashing. I even bought a new 256GB iPhone 8, thinking it might help. And it did for a couple of days... until the next “upgrade”. Now I’m back to the same old thing... crash, Crash, CRASH!!!

skavanag's Review of InavxReviewed on 12/18/18 12:50 PM
The Explorer Chartbooks are seriously - if not fatally flawed. It is very dangerous to rely on them for navigational purposes. If you download the “quilted” charts, you have to individually drill down to each and every detailed chart or they will not be loaded on your device (I have these charts on two separate iPads for redundancy purposes, as well as the printed chartbooks). That means you’ll be coming into a channel - the vast majority of which are unmarked - and run the risk of finding you don’t have the detailed chart on your device. If you download the charts individually, then GPS positioning does not work on them. What you would expect from iNavX, i.e. realtime GPS position, bearing, speed, location, etc data will likely not be displayed. In one instance off of Freeport, it was even worse....it showed me in depths of 300-400 meters, when my depth sounders (I have two independent ones for redundancy) both showed depths of 40-50 feet. It appears on the individual (not the “quilted” charts), GPS data is off by miles, which is why it doesn’t show up all on detailed charts. Fortunately I had Navionics charts on my B&G chart plotter, so I had a fallback to dead reckoning, which is very hazardous in the skinny and twisting channels of the Bahamas. This is such a serious flaw, I’ll be surprised if Explorer and iNavX aren’t sued if someone destroys their boat relying on these charts and app. I have used iNavX for years in US waters without an issue. This is an app-killer.

Dean Boat's Review of InavxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
I'm sailing the South Pacific, (Currently in Tonga) and use this app all the time. Works great, when it's not deleting your entire library of charts! Seriously, Poof! They're gone! Not an issue if you are around high speed internet, and have a few hours to spend with tech support. The reality is, iNavX have known about this issue for years, (see below) and they have not fixed it. For those of us sailing across oceans using it, it's a nightmare, unsafe, and should not be allowed on cruising yachts. Yes, it happens when you update the OS from apple, and then, depending on the update, Poof! I've had all my charts just vanish at least 3 times. Next is a discussion about if you've paid up on your year subscription of chart updates? YOUR OLD CHARTS SHOULD NOT VANISH! This problem needs to be addressed, and your customers need to be made aware of this problem. This situation comes up on the SSB radio nets in the South Pacific all the time - Vanishing iNavX charts!!! PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE AND FIX! I wrote the following years ago, and the major issue of entire chart loss has still not been corrected or addressed. It happened yet again when I was preparing to depart New Zealand, in May, 2017. What happened to my Charts when I upgraded my iPad operating system? They disappeared! I sail in the South Pacific, and I would be s****** if this happened in Tonga. Please help! This works better and has more options than my Raymarine E-7 touch display instruments. If the iPad was waterproof, it would be the best navigation equipment. I sailed with it from San Francisco to New Zealand in 2012. On some remote islands in the Pacific, the chart detail was better than the Raymarine, even though the charts are from the same company. The only thing I did not like was that when you get to 180 Degrees West, you have scroll back across the globe to see the charts at 180 Degrees East. (And there are a lot of islands to enjoy at that position!) Overall it is far superior program, as long as you don't drop your iPad, (break it or sink it,) in the middle of the ocean!
johnw12's Review of InavxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
Fairly easy to use! I have been using a Furuno chart plotter which is a bear to operate. More time to figure out than time of actual navigation. I like the idea that I can down load and update any chart anytime anywhere. NOAA charts are free! Some of the procedures aren't as intuitive as I would like. I'm of an age where my memory isn't quite so good so would like to see a simple easy to use set of basic instructions. As it is an app on installed on my iPad It reduces the need for a standalone chart plotter and other computer gadgets greatly reducing onboard clutter and frustration. Overall, a great app at a fair price. Customer service is great too!

NavalArch's Review of InavxReviewed on 12/15/17 6:02 PM
We have used this app for two years now, sailing out of St. Augustine, FL, and now bound around the world on our 35' sailboat. This app has many nice features and it has gotten us through the Caribbean, now 3,000 miles. I really like the way it works and the detail it shows. I prefer the Navionics charts. We run the app on our iPad2 as our primary chart plotter, and keep a back-up iPad2 loaded with the same charts. You are allowed to run charts on two devices for the one purchase price for each set of charts. Here's the "But...": This app does not support Active Captain. Active Captain is like TripAdvisor for cruisers. On chart plotters and apps that show AC, you can see details about ports, marinas, and anchorages right on your chart, complete with member reviews. If iNavX allowed Active Captain to show on its charts, it would be about perfect for navigation. Until iNavX supports AC, I will rate this a 4.

I got this because it has support for NMEA instrumentation, but there are other apps which do that and offer better charting at a much lower cost.

We have used INavX for 10,000 nm of travel, mostly on the ICW and adjacent waters. Because it used NOAA charts, it works well in part because we always have a paper chart handy just in case. At first, our blue water sailing friend was skeptical, but after two days he agreed that with INavX and an IPad, there is no need for a chart plotter.

This used to be an a+ app but unfortunately it has just gotten slower and slower. The latest version running on an iPhone X is unusable. Save your money and get something else.

I have used this app for the past three years. I no longer plug in my Ratheon chartplotter. It has all the tools I need to amange the boat on a cruise or a local race. I just need to start using it on the iPad so I can see more!! SV Fin Sail Amelia
Don Quixoti's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/23/18 8:55 PM
I really wanted this to work but unfortunately it is not a practical solution. I’m a full time cruiser on a sailboat, we do both coastal voyages and long open ocean passages. I was very excited about this app and dumped way too much money into various electronic charts. With the latest version, the app now runs in the background and constantly uses Location Services. It kills the battery of my iPad forcing frequent recharges, not realistic on a boat. I contacted Support and the only thing they suggest is to force quit the app every time you put down the iPad. That means every time you need a chart, you first have to reopen the app and wait for it to load — which unfortunately takes ~45 seconds with all the charts I have downloaded (on a brand new iPad Pro). Again, not realistic in the real world. Worst of all is the attitude I got from Support. You’d think I was asking for something unreasonable to have a working app after spending $200 bucks on charts. If you’re looking at this app, I would go with Navionics instead until the background Location is fixed.
AMEX's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 3:40 AM
Can’t plot course, waypoints are all over the charts, charts don’t look good. Waypoints are difficult and cumbersome to remove or rename. On Garmin I can create a course, here no way. No directions either. Not intuitive at all. One of the few apps I’ve purchased which are totally unusable. Absolutely waste of time.
Shannon Phillip's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:58 AM
Great for planning as well as a chart plotter, the benefit being you can take it off the boat and use it. Clear graphics and easy to zoom in and out as well as in conjunction with weather and tidal apps
Paige Duffy's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:56 AM
I have this first in a small boat as the only electronic nav aid, and now in a larger one. It's superb, with an easy to use interface and excellent support. The U.K. Navionics charts are excellent value and very detailed.
Mohammad Townsend's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:54 AM
Great app that works so well. I'd rather have INAVX than any of the other packages such as raymarine costing 10x as much.
Ellis Steeless's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:52 AM
This navigation system with Navionics charts is by far the the best I have experienced in 30 years of long distance sailing.
Finlay Bell's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:52 AM
Provides much better navigation than fixed chartplotters. It is particularly good for race navigation on the sea.
Sarah Chapmaner's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:51 AM
Anyone spending serious time at sea should acquire this software.I use iNavx is very good. Highly recommended
Ava Osborne's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:20 AM
I only wish weather routing be added.
William Pearcer's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:20 AM
I just spent 2 weeks sailing running iNavX. Fantastic apps amazingly easy to use, very comprehensive in planning route, waypoints... very good maps easy to buy ... I have a lot of experience with PC based navigation software, iNavX brings the power of all these applications right at your fingertips ...
Jade Mahmood's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:19 AM
I tried most of sailing apps and this is by far the best I tried. Very complete. Maybe not the most amazing from a UI stand point. The support is fast.
Connor Anderso's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:19 AM
The cost of the App + charts + Tablet is less than a chart plotter and is just as good or better. I am a retired Airline Pilot so I know something about Navigation.I have checked the GPS positions against my basic Garmin 128 GPS unit and readouts agree exactly.
David Marsde's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:18 AM
This app was initially recommended to me by my first sailing instructor. I cruise often now and bought many other marine nav apps but keep finding myself using iNavX. This app has all the features of my on board chart plotter and is more intuitive in my opinion. Thank you for keeping me safe and creating beautiful memories. If you sail, do yourself a favor and incorporate this app into your regular equipment rotation.
Connor Burto's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:18 AM
Stable app. Easy and fast plotting and planning, correcting on the fly, panning and zooming. All you need and more for a fraction of the price of a RayMarine. Add a water tight housing (beware for direct sunlight exposure and subsequent overheating!), and you have your chart plotter at hand in every weather condition. I wouldn't want anything else.
Madeleine Collins's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:17 AM
For a professional skipper, it's probably the most powerful and the most efficient application to sail.
Zoe Austin's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 11:17 AM
It can download raster charts, look at them and get a familear course and velocity indicator.
Leah Bates's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 10:45 AM
Large set of maps for reasonable extra cost (at least as far as marine charts go). The interface and settings options make this app or choice for true navigation. And finally: you can plan your route at home, enter all the waypoints and then have everything handy at sea. Five stars well deserved.

Clear screen, use the anchor watch function often.Works perfectly
Nicholas Bentley's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 10:44 AM
iNavx in combination with Navionics charts have been my favourite navigation app for sailing inshore and offshore. Options like night vision red screen, GRIBs, AIS data and wind data make it a strong supporting tool for safe navigation.

Mollie Morrison's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 10:42 AM
I've been navigating for decades. This app is helpful in real time and for trip planning. Worth it.

Freddie Fincher's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 10:41 AM
I have used iNavx several times now and find it an perfect for my needs, we had detailed planning and voyage info for a fraction of the cost of fully detailed charts, even the most detailed charts are not a patch on this. performs as well as any chart plotter at a fraction of the cost.
Gracie Richards's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 10:41 AM
I am very happy with iNavX, the Navionics charts I bought through the app - looking forward to the next trip!
Morgan Wooder's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 10:40 AM
I have received immense value from the purchase. While it is always best to confirm location with other means, iNavx has never failed me. Being able to have redundancy, allows for extra piece of mind. Updating charts is easy. This app will be a necessity in an upcoming Great Loop trip.
Henry Hammon's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 10:40 AM
Purchased on the water with our first boat when the chartplotter stopped working. Had to navigate some skinny bay water and the app performed its job. Since then I continue to use it planning out routes, fishing spots, etc and am very happy with it.

Natasha Cooper's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 10:37 AM
I intended to use this app as backup to my plotter. It is so good I have used it as the primary plotter to sail. It's easy to plan on and modify routes and waypoints. I really wonder why plotters are still selling when this App is so much better.
Ethan Simmon's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/2/18 10:37 AM
I have tried a number of the marine navigation aids for phones/tablets but this is by far and away the best. A fully featured solution which provides all the functionality of a plotter minus the radar. Have used this for racing and cruises. iNavX has made it an essential piece of equipment.
Kennex380's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/19/18 5:01 PM
In order to get this app to function well one must purchase a Navionics package that is designed for it and costs more than a regular Navionics chart of the same area.
Michael8265's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/15/17 3:29 PM
I have had this app for over 5 years, and I have received immense value from the purchase. While it is always best to confirm location with other means, iNav has never failed me. Being able to have redundancy, on both my iPad and iPhone, allows for extra piece of mind. Updating charts is easy. I have traveled extended trips in the Great Lakes and connecting river, including anchoring out using the anchor alarm feature. This app will be a necessity in an upcoming Great Loop trip.
Side-tracked's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/14/17 9:59 AM
We have been using iNavx for years. From the start, found it extremely easy to use and equally helpful. Customized instrument settings provide the info you want balanced w readability and font size. Loaded on both iPad and phone (at Nav station and on deck). It is very simple to touch and drop a WP and to see location on chart; range; bearing; SOG; COG; VMG. Great tool and very intuitive from the start.
EZ Lady's Review of InavxReviewed on 10/12/18 2:42 PM
I want to love this app because it provides access to NOAA raster charts. I like the simple interface and obviously the portability, as well as iPad and iPhone support. As a navigation tool it should never interrupt or distract the user with irrelevant information, and unfortunately now it does. I would happily give it five stars if it: 1) removed the pop up ads and “tell us what you think!” surveys. 2) improved chart switching. Right now it takes far too many taps to locate adjacent charts or charts at different scales. You have to slog through the entire chart library to find charts you already have, and the search function doesn’t seem to work with chart numbers. 3) improved lat/lon coordinate entry. Scrolling through every degree/minute second is tedious and should be replaced with direct entry. I want to use this app but find I use Transas iSailor instead...much more complex but more purposefully designed.
Idiots idiot's Review of InavxReviewed on 1/20/18 3:10 PM
The charting etc is great. But obtaining the Charts is ridiculously confusing. I have to BUY a chart in order to THEN create an X TRAVERSE ACCOUNT??!? No? Well then maybe tell me why because I see no other way. Also, there IS a MIDDLE of America, and not just USA EAST and USA WEST?? Where are the Upper Mississippi River charts? The instructions are written without prepositions at times, and are told as if you have an outstanding idea of how the Step being describe already works. Does anybody read these back to a buddy or proofread?? I get the glowing reviews, and kudos to you guys who have the benefit of navigating the Coasts, or Bermuda, or the Inlets of Sauagnawaki... I’m not complaining about the capabilities or its usefullness.. it’s getting to that usefulness that’s important.
