mobile navionics for cell phone
However, I can't figure out how to get it to navigate to a saved marker. I can see the markers on the map and walk/drive to roughly the right spot but what I really want to do is get it to show me a heading to take and count down the distance to the marker like you would with a hand held gps going to a waypoint.
Does it have this capability and does anyone know how to do this.
Also according to the instructions in the app any map areas saved/downloaded to a phone are permanent? As I understand it you can't remove parts of the downloaded info to free up storage space without unloading the entire app? Is that correct.
The Navionics compatibility PDF says the Galaxy S4 is compatible and my friend who has the phone/provider is capable of downloading.
WTF? Anybody else have this issue?
Bought the app for my Galaxy S5 before a recent trip to Devils Lake, ND...... worked great, absolutely no complaints.
The app is really easy to use. I played around with it at home for a half hour and had everything down. It's basically like using the gps on your phone. You pan over a lake and zoom in on it. The contour lines will show up and show you the depths and changes in the lake. You can mark a specific spot that you want to fish and then when you head out to the lake it will take you to the spot. It shows you places on the lake people had success fishing, shows boat lands and some bait shops.
Now, I liked everything about this app except two things. Sometimes the contours were off by quite a bit and the gps isn't as accurate as a handheld. I fished a body of water with this app that had contours going up on the shore that should have been way over on top of the lake. Also, the contours were completely wrong on some of the lakes I fished. So the lakes the depths were correct on, I found that the gps would only get me to about 60 to 80 feet of the spot I wanted to fish. It's great to get into the general area but to pinpoint a smaller specific spot was tough.
To me the most important part of a gps contour map is accuracy. Overall the app is great for finding your way on and off the lake, finding a general area to fish, and marking fishing areas before you head out. $15 bucks is extremely hard to beat but I am purchasing a handheld gps and lake chip tomorrow for the accuracy.
Hope that helps and good luck.
