Good Iphone app (Map/marker/routes?) That is free??
« on: Jan 01, 2018, 09:40 PM »
Hello, I am looking for a good app that I can use when navigating the ice when fishing... so I can log spots and see the water depths and such... Thanks!

I'm pretty sure I had the lakes map on my iPad with the one foot contours from navionics. Now I don't. Thought it was free now there's a hefty charge. Am I missing something? Maybe I had a free trial or something?

A hefty charge?  I think navionics was 10 bucks for the phone app when I got it, well worth it.

I payed $14.95 for the first year of Navionics. My subscription expired so I can't use all the advanced features of the app anymore, but what is available is all I need. Can still view 1 foot contours, lay waypoints and tracks.

All pennies compared to dropping that fancy phone down the hole.

I pay for navionics, for 14 dollars a yr and with all the fishing I do. It's well worth the money imo.

I think it's funny how people think everything on the phone should be free...you people have no clue how much development time goes into these apps and dev time is expensive!  If it is valuable enough for you to want to use it then it should be valuable enough to pay for that privilege. 

I pay for Navionics and love it, since I'm heading to Canada this year I will also upgrade to US/Canada this year.  Again, well worth it to me.   Same maps on my Garmin, can synch waypoints easily between them all through the Active Captain app and all is well.

What people don't realize is nothing is free, either through ads spammed in the app, or selling of your data while using the app.

Nothing is free.

But yeah the active captain thru garmin is very nice

Year 5-6 for Navionics and guess what? I will continue into the future as long as I fish>>>>>
May your tip-up spool while your flag raises with hopes of landing the big one.
