Ratings and Reviews
Pro licensing is unclear
Wasn’t totally clear that the 5 seat license claimed by the PRO level licensing is through Apple’s account licensing so be aware that you have to have all of your devices tied to the same appleid in order to use them. Additionally, when the automatic download of apps put the app on my iPad (after I installed it first on my iPhone), it did not recognize the license even if I tried to restore purchases. This might be a bug or quirk with the app getting auto installed on the iPad before I purchased the license. Deleting the app from the iPad and installing it again seems to have fixed the issue in case others run into the same thing. FYI on this nuance for the developer and appreciate they responded to my initial review after a few days so I’ve revised my original post.
Developer Response ,
This is Apple handled and subscriptions through Apple’s systems share between all of your devices that use your iTunes account. This way your subscription can share between your iPhone, iPad and any other device you own. There is no “time limit” on sharing these to your devices. It is handled and distributed as you update devices, get a new phone, buy another iPad, etc.
Not sure what “licensing” add-on you were expecting as again all sale and distribution is handled via Apple and through your iTunes account with them.
Pro subscriptions are priced for “you” and “your” devices, not multiple people with different iTunes accounts. Apple does not provide a distribution method for you to share your subscriptions with your buddies. Some of our race teams opt to buy “team” iPads that share one iTunes account. This is a loophole in Apples sale and distribution methods, not ours and the only way you can technically “share” a subscription.
Yes I run LEADNAV myself and have since 2014 but even with over 30,000 users and professionals utilizing LEADNAV, I do a pretty good job at answering any email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or through our contact page within 24-48 hours at the most… So if you have an issue with your subscription let me know!
Throw that old Lowrance away
This app has completely changed how I plan my off road adventures. I used it for a 2500 mile Baja adventure, and was able to create daily routes from stop to stop. I do a lot of off roading in the Western US and pre plan my routes with this app. There is a learning curve, but they have great videos on their website to help. I gladly upgraded to the pro version and the $120 per year is a spit in the bucket for the function/features you receive. I raced in several Baja 1K’s and NORRA M1k. I fought with lowrance god units every time. Using an IPad is so much better, and there are SO many more features with LeadNav.
I’ve used this app for well over a year for many things. Yes mapping things out can take some time, but for me that’s not an issue. Off road courses, and rescue plans and options, the fact i can coordinate with other units using this app and be able to see them as well is great. Being able to leave notes on destination or warming/ caution markers is awesome. All around love the app as well as my team loves to use it as well. I work rescue from a busy metro city all the way out to the middle of no where and this app had never left me not knowing where I’m going.
