  • Great for yachting types, but for Canada Great Lakes fishermen you going to have to pony up.

    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.
  • My GoTo NAV App

    By Missed MyChance
    Have been using for several years. Lots of features. Easy to get used to. Great navigation capability.
  • Don’t leave home without it

    By Cappygeelo
    Best iPhone/iPad nav app. Easy to use. Powerful. Provides redundancy for you onboard nav or peace of mind when you’re on someone else’s boat. AIS Live overlay option is a game changer. Download your charts and don’t look back.
  • Like the charts but not the UI

    By Om Nom?
    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.
  • Wish I could get a refund !!!

    By dmatlock
    This app does me no good for Texas lakes unless I buy more! Not at all what I expected
  • No instructions?

    By Tag2some
    I think I wasted $15. I can’t find documentation. It is not intuitive and I can’t get it to stop actively using my location. Ready to delete it. Avionics is much better.
  • Not what I wanted

    By zxzxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    This app is not what I wanted! I deleted it as soon as I realized it wasn’t the right app and when I try to get a refund it won’t give me one.
  • Latest Upgrade has Made iNavx USELESS

    By cvj9325
    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.
  • Overall Pretty Reliable

    By TxnMariner
    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.
  • Good chart reference

    By Bob Bitchen
    I use it primarily to view charts, and for me it was worth the price. It’s pretty complicated trying to do much else, especially when on watch. I need to keep my eyes out the window, not trying to use an app.
