  • Why spend thousands on navigation

    By cruising Bobbi
    Why would you spend $5,000 or $10,000 on navigation? This app is great. I have successfully used the app for many years navigating the waters from New York to Texas.
  • Ridiculously confusing layout.

    By Idiots idiot
    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.
  • It USED to work...

    By webbwebs
    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!!!
  • Good App, but...

    By NavalArch
    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.
  • Best app purchase ever!!!

    By Michael8265
    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.
  • Very Satisfied

    By Side-tracked
    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.
  • Very useful

    By wfryan335
    I've been navigating for decades. This app is helpful in real time and for trip planning. Worth it.
  • Map selection so clumsy it is useless

    By Frank1626
    They didn't even try to make the map selection user friendly. You have to scroll through pages and page to get what you want.
  • Great App

    By johnw12
    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!
  • Powerful and easy to use

    By er-apple
    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.
