Amazing for dummies

This app is amazing for dummies. I went fishing with my boyfriend on his boat and we got lost on the way home. My first mistake was to trust him when he said let’s she where this stream takes us.. and to my gut feeling, he had no idea how to take us back to the boat dock. I remember scrolling past this tik tok and found this app! And thank goodness this one saved me because I am navigation illiterate when it comes to boating navigation. This one is by far the most easiest and colorful one yet. It was easy to follow. Definitely understood where I was going! And the best part was, I got to tell my boyfriend I was right! 10/10 would use over and over and over again. Especially when he tries to pull “let’s see where this takes us” line again. Now I don’t have to worry and can enjoy and relax my boat ride, and try to out fish him this time. Thank you to your daughter who posted the tik tok. And thank you to the creator who made it easy for girls who don’t understand boat navigation or who are just dumb and don’t understand it in general. Either way it was helpful!

Best app for daily boaters or just occasional fishers

My father takes very frequent trips on his boat for the past 5-6 years and I showed him this app a few days ago & he LOVES it he hasn’t stopped using it it tells him everything he needs to know it lets him choose his own route, it’s basically google maps but for boats! This app is amazing and my father loves it definitely recommend, they have a whole section just for updates & this about the app, you can create your own boat profile and it shows you things best for your boat, it has a compass & tells about you how deep the water under you possibly is, it shows your speed, weather, winds & tides & it’s just amazing all the way around, my dad says give the creator a 10/10 love this & thank you for making it easier & really safer for my dad to be out by himself.

Best boating app!!

I recently started using the boating app Argo and I have to say it has completely changed my boating experience! Argo is an incredibly user-friendly and well designed app that provides a wealth of information and features for boaters of all levels. Argo has a fantastic navigation system that is both reliable and easy to use. The app provides detailed maps and charts as well as helpful route planning tools they make it simple to plot out a course and stay on track white out in the water. perhaps my favorite feature of Argo however is its social component. The app allows you to connect with other boaters in your area share tips and advice and even join groups and events. overall if you love boating I highly recommend you to get this app!
