New Navionics HD for IPad

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I just downloaded the new (released Dec 23/10) Navionics Canada/USA Great Lakes HD for my iPad. The app allows you to pre-plan/chart your fishing trip/day on your iPad/Phone/Pod from the comfort of your couch and then just key in your routes/WPs to your on board/ portable GPS. I think it's a great deal for thirty bucks vs the cost of $200 chip. It has all charted lakes in Canada & the US.

Be sure to check out the FAQs on the website if your thinking of adding this app to your iPod(there are some restrictions).

BTW, I have nothing to gain from navionics for posting this. I just wanted to share what I think is a good buy.

 

Regards,

Simon

I have been trying to find it in the apps store on my iPad with no luck. Can you give me the actual name under which you found it?

 

Thanks

Just type "navionics" in the search bar in the app store.

Tried that last night. Sometimes I think my iPad has a personality - a mean one.

Hi did anyone have a chance to load this up on their IPad? Would be intrested in your thoughts.

 

I can seem to find a sample screen shot. Does it provide depth information and include navigational markers/channels etc?

 

Would be interested if it can also work without wifi connected.

 

Thanks

Memo,

Yes it does provide the info you asked about. Once you download your map selection, it is always available to 'view' even without wifi. You can even access waypoint lat & long and plot routes. I use the app for planning/plotting independent of my HDS7 and have to manually enter the gps coordinates into the lowrance. If you wanted to use your iPad as a gps, you would need the G3 version. As mentioned in the original post, check out the link for FAQ.

IMO it was $30 well spent.

I downloaded the 'app' for the android smartphone and all I can say is awesome! It covers a ton of lakes with depth, contours etc...well worth the $12 in my opinion especially when I dont have a GPS on my boat yet! really awesome app...

    • New toy, for when I am not fishing *NF*

      So a lot has happened in the past 6 years for me and now here I am.  By that I mean a newer relationship and new hobbies too.  Yes I still fish as often as I can (I just don't share my findings now) but my old passion to ride is back.  Today I finally got my own 'bike'. It's a 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 with less than 1600KM on it and it's mint AND has the upgraded Hindel exhaust!  Time to ride to my spots

    • Got a new truck today

      I bought a new F150 Lariat last year and absolutely loved the truck but there was a serious issue with the 5 litre engine so Ford installed another engine recently and that one had issues too. I told them I was done with the 5 litre and didn't want the truck back. I wanted to replace the truck and get one with the 3.5 EcoBoost instead and I've never seen a dealership do so much to make a customer happy. There's already a great "Employee Discount" thing going on which knocks a pile of $$$$ o

    • NF. New Motor - E-TEC 135 HO

      Finally got the new motor installed on my Smokercraft. With the old Optimax I would top out at 41MPH (2 people) at about 6000 RPM (It was probably more like 5800 RPM - don't think the gauge was all that accurate).  With the new motor I am topping out at 44MPH @ 5500 RPM.  So I have a little more RPM's to get out of it.  Currently running a Rebel SS 3 Blade - 3x15 1/4x19RX Prop.  When the Marina did the water test, they were hitting 6000 RPM with an Aluminum 3x14.5 19P (Not sure on speed, as

    • PEI / New Brunswick fishing opportunities

      Hey all, been a while... Family road trip happening in August.  Was wondering what fishing opportunities could be available, preferably saltwater from shore? Dont really want to book a big charter. Possibly could be interested in maybe getting on a small boat or a couple hours of jigging perhaps. Staying a few days each in Sackville NB, and Sherbrook PEI. Thanks! Dawg
