  • Pay again?

    By metalfan82183
    I paid for this app, and now it’s asking for more money. I will not pay again to use the app I’ve already paid for. I will be deleting this app today. Which is too bad, because it was a good app.
  • Fabulous!

    By Serious listener23
    I used this app for ice fishing, it worked great to find deep holes for Tullibees. Wish they had a tutorial but wayyyy better than buying a GPS. I don’t know why there are so many bad reviews, this app is great. I can mark all of my fishing spots and I will definitely be using this for a long time.
  • No compass headings!!

    By get-shipshape
    This app uses True North bearings & headings rather than compass headings/bearings. There is no indication of that in setup. No big deal unless don’t mind being off course while using your navigation software.
  • lake depths are not accurate!

    By bacacred
    after researching several similar apps I bought this app thinking it would be useful when ice fishing an area for the first time. i used the app over a dozen times. it was wrong every time! it was off by 6ft to 15ft when on a lake with an average depth of 24ft. I was very disappointed to say the least. don’t waste your time or money on this app!
  • What happened???

    By schreinman
    Why do we have to renew? It was fine the way it was.
  • Don't buy if you're a fisherman

    By Roostertails47
    I like the idea of this app, but the contours and depths are so far off it's totally worthless for fishing. On one lake I fish it says there is a 20 foot deep hole but when I went there it's nothing but 9 foot deep, and the official survey of the lake says there is a max depth of 9 foot. Complete waste of money for any fisherman.
  • Already Paid

    By TN Xbow
    Paid for it a while back. Now I need to download a new lake and it wants me to pay again. Think I’ll pass this time. Seems strange that they change the rules after you pay the first time.
  • Ripoff

    By unhappyangler
    Paid $10 for this ap last year and now I have to pay again to get satellite images again. Screw that. I will get a different ap.
  • Not happy!!!

    By spinbag 48
    Where’s the off button??? My battery goes dead overnight. I’ve had many GPS’s all came with an off button. Idiots.
  • Super marine app

    By Seabumjoe
    Iwhile underway I keep this app open on my iPad to back up my chart plotters. The constantly updated charts are super accurate . Not overly intuitive to use, but neither is my Furuno or German.
