Can’t find a better app then this

I have been using this app for many years now and I have finally came to put a post on it. It works great where there is no service. I work in SENM where there is little to no service and I can use this app anytime I enjoy the features of filtering certain things on and off. Like maps and layers of things. The only bad thing is this map doesn’t get updated enough.

Ios 17 is not working properly

Im using this app for many years , everything is perfect , the only thing now is the bug in ios 17 which is cant share the tracks , when you push the share bottom in top right corner app is crashing and its big deal for many our friends who using this app cause we always sharing tracks between us

Best navigation app

I am a commercial blue crabber and licensed tow boat captain and I use this app to keep track of 200 crab pots on the Gulf of Mexico and I also use it to locate vessels needing towing assistance. Even when I’m 30 miles offshore with no cell phone service, the offline maps never fail to guide me to my destination. So simple to use and the best tool I’ve ever seen on a cell phone
