I've been using the Navionics app for about 3 years now. I've been pretty happy with it and I use it all the time!

Ive had this app for a while now. Very handy on the ice. Drop pins on your honeyholes, charts your path. Great app!!

I bought it and used it this weekend. Really helpful since Im working without a gps finder. Also easier to figure out direction of bathyes than reading the DNR maps.

when you guy put in way points does it share the points with everyone else around that area? I want to get that for the maps. I have seen it and it looks great for ice fishing. I just hope its not as hard to use a regular gps. I get corn fused easily. LOL

I depends on how you set it up Roc. It can share or you can keep them private. I think you should share yours though!!!!!!
