    Default Navionics on iPad

    Navionics have made their iPad charts available again but they are getting poor reviews with people saying they don't work and are 'buggy'.

    The price has increased too to around 50.

    Has anyone had any better experience using these upgrades?

    There's already a thread somewhere about this - look like it's an issue for iPad 3 users.

    Default IPad 3 issues

    Thanks for that. Although not totally clear there does seem to be an issue with iPad 3 usage. I may wait until it is sorted out. Thank you.

    I have it and it works well on ipad3 only issue is the fuel consumption at 3.8l/h. GPS works well and is as accurate as others I have tried it against, and they are professional ones.

    Perhaps I'm being too picky then . . .

    I have it on an Ipad 3. Resolution is good all functions apart from the LPH work fine. My only comment is that the Iphone version that I imported from my phone seems to work just as well.

    Works fine for me as a backup and GPS is surprisingly accurate.

    Just used the Navionics app on my iPad 2 for our crossing to Jersey Boat Show - it was a joy to use and worked perfectly. Tidal flow information was invaluable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

    Default Navionics it is then!

    Steve,

    Thanks for that. Mixed opinions here, maybe related to use of iPad2 or iPad3. We have a new iPad3 but although some people have reported problems I think we'll take the plunge.

    Enjoy Jersey and say Hi to Richard for us.

    From what little I have seen noone has actually found a real problem. There have been operator errors, but I am not aware of any issues, apart from the LPH thing. Minor really, as is only a bit of mental arithmetic. That's not a bug anyway, it's an inconvenience.

    I have iPad 3 and have found nothing wrong at all.
    I may be wrong, but I'm not confused.
