Ratings and Reviews
Nice and easy. Great buy
My only complaint would be to have the display stay on during operations if the phone is on charger. Other than that the app does the job.
Developer Response ,
Please tap on the auto follow icon in the action bar at the bottom of the screen. This would turn on moving map, with real time track overlay and heading arrow. It also keeps the GPS on and screen on.

Waste of money for N Californians
Zero stars if it was possible. Yeah update coming but when. Live in northern Ca & my location is determined to be in Maine. I only downloaded maps in N Ca but call up any famous N Ca lake & boom you’re taken to East Coast. Pretty much seems to be false app advertising. I would look elsewhere for lake maps.
UPDATE: Two maps were updated, thank you. So I’ll give one more star for that. But, I ended up moving on to the Navonics app. $9.99/yr. Navonics works great on my iphone, extremely detailed & saved the day when my buddy’s sonar and GPS stopped working. This one had my location in the Midwest. Getting closer. I appreciate the update for the 2 lakes but needed something that worked better for inland fishing. I found it. I’ll keep this app tucked away in a folder, because it cost so much, but mainly in hopes it improves over time. I’ll play with it periodically to check on it. Until then, I’m sorry, but I had to find a better app.
Worked perfect for me
We are avid boaters in Texas and like to try out new lakes. Downloaded the app and headed to Lake Texoma. Huge lake and we didn’t want to get lost or bottom out on a low spot. I ran the app concurrently with my Lowrance and the app was actually better because I could see how the under water terrain changed and could navigate around the low spots through the channels. I was able to set waypoints on fishing hotspots, etc. Just as described.
