Thread: Nav App for Android?

  1. #1

    Nav App for Android?

    Looking for a chart/nav/GPS app for my Android phone. I've played around with a couple from the Google Store, but was not impressed with any of them. Either poor functionality, or horribly slow updating the screen.

    What is anyone using? Or is it just to much trouble and you all use a dedicated nav console or something?

    I use google maps. Before getting a newer phone I had two separate apps. Navigation with Google Maps.

    Now just Google Maps allows for nav from within!

    The cheap ones are awful. All of them, they are just copies of Coast Guard Charts with a GPS function.

    Navionics is very good for only $10.00

    The iPad version is $50.00

    And you probably aren't too concerned about depth.

    I would say I'm more involved with the water than many other boaters :)

    Catch a striper (or a shark) while fishing from a kayak and you might change your mind ......... SLEIGH RIDE!!!

    And besides, I'd suggest that there is a higher percentage of water-educated folks paddling around as opposed to powering around. And this comes from a guy who owns both. Too many idiots on the water come boating season. Need examples, head out there Saturday when striper season opens up. Make sure to stop by your local ramp to see how many cluster-F's occur.
