Poor routing

I want to use this app to create routes that I can sync to Zeus. But the routing is glitchy and I have to start over frequently. The auto routing is really bad, and you can’t adjust a route. I just did 3 routes in B&G and Navionics on my iPhone and in each case the B&G route was about 20% longer. Some of the choices the software made were wrong. Some of the process is not intuitive, like if want to auto route to a series of waypoints you have to put in the start, then “destination” but the destination has to be your first waypoint. Then you can long press on the map to add more. And you can’t adjust a route. “Simplify this leg” just creates a straight line route between two points, even if it goes over land! I did figure out how to export a GPX file from Navionics and load it into the BFG app through the Cmap website but it is silly to have to copy from from Navionics to Cmap to B&G app to Zeus.

Mast Height Specification Needed

The app is pretty powerful. Occasionally have an issue getting the app to sync routes with my chart plotter. The biggest issue I have is with the lack of a mast height specification. It is not unusual for the auto-routing to take me under a low bridge. Bridges are very hard to see on the chart because they are a very thin line and usually light gray.

It is dead annoying to discover a low bridge in the route that I did not catch, and have to turn around.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for using our app and for your feedback. Our development team is working on the 'Boat Settings' feature which will also include the height.

Newest Update Issue

Updating my previous review- Technical issues resolved with the latest update. The new app is great. Upgrade to premium and you’ll find yourself using this more than your actual chart plotter.

This is one of my favorite navigation apps, but the latest update has it hanging on the loading screen saying “setting up charts, this could take up to a minute” the maps never load. Using an iPhone 12 Pro for reference.

Developer Response ,

Hey - sorry for the issue you had here, this should now be fixed in the latest app update, could you take a look and let us know if that is resolved for you?
