Quality, Easy to use program. Maps can be downloaded for free. - GPSNavX is a good program that allows intregration of a lot of information, charts, GPS, GRiB files, AIS. All this information displays on your charts in an easy to read and understand format. If your looking for a good, well thought out navigation tool, this is it. BSB charts for the USA can be downloaded for free from NOAA or you can buy the Maptech charts from the vendor, but why when they are free. Just search for BSB charts. There are other free charts for first World countries like Canada, that are distributed through their government agency websites, you just have to search a little. For other countries, such as cruising in Mexico, you will have to purchase the charts.
BEWARE! - The upfront cost of the app is $59.99, but not included in the app's description is that it is mandatory for you, as the user, to purchase additional charts for it to even be usable. Once in the app, you're supposed to purchase additional chart(s) that are even more expensive than the app itself (the cheapest one at $85). I purchased this app this morning and have already tried to request a refund, which iTunes will (so far) not honor. This borders on an unethical representation of the product, so beware before you bite the bullet!

This app is working and it is good. - I want to start with analysis of the negative reviews. Some folks are giving single star for the following reasons: - not too user friendly. - came with world charts which are useless - vivid navionics user - It is quite user friendly, for people who knows how to use e-charts. easy to use. Help cuold be better and some features should be more intuitive, but overall it is not bad for the price. Therfore learn how to use it, or stay on beach... - 'Worldharts are useless'. Basically you want for $29.99 chart package which cost $149 and complain that this is not included. Such a …. But if you know what you are doing, you do not need to purchase charts, but just go to NOAA site and download it. This process is tedious, but doable. So please be realistic in your expectations. - Navionics chart are generally better suited for MacvENC software.. So please be real. Generally this is not the best app, but for given money probably it is best on a market. For the much better app. download MacENC. But it would cost much more, so you have na option. Just do not complain about $29.99 and have realistic expectations. This is water-down MacENC app and just give you taste of the MAC navigation systems.
Do not buy - I bought this with a hope if its being a user-friendly and dispute the reviews before me I went and bought it. please do not do the same mistake, the way you buy a chart is frustrating.
NO customer service bad App - I have used the IPad version of this program for some time and decided to use it on my MAC. I had problems form the start and could not get any customer support. They have no phone support and don’t answer their email support. In addition they claim you can use Maptech charts, but Maptech disavows any knowledge of them. Bottom line don’t buy.
I’m an idiot - I should have read the reviews first. I can’t believe I downloaded such a worthless app. I’m an avid Navionics user and I had the expectation that this was similar. Do not purchase.
All I got was a WHITE SCREEN - Purchased this app …. loaded and deleted twice….all you get is box with white screen!!!!! STAY AWAY !!!!!!
