Almost Perfect App

I am setting things up and this seems like a great app, and I’m excited to test it offline in the woods this weekend. I think this could be the gps app I’ve been looking for. I would like to suggest 3 things though.

- Option to download a satellite view map. It would help so much for hunting! Since where I hunt and live is mostly flat land, we look for trails and tree lines for points of reference and you can’t see that from any of the other maps that can be downloaded for offline use.
- Option to add notes to a waypoint, so I can put a longer paragraph description of why it is a point of interest to me. It’s hard to put everything about the waypoint you want to remember in a small name.
- Sharing... I’m not going to have email access in the middle of nowhere. Sharing via airdrop or Bluetooth would be impressive.

Deceived by the reviews!

The most terrible, confusing GPS app I have ever worked with! Yes, I am not that smart, neither that much advanced in working with that kind of stuff, but you don’t have to be a NASA scientist in order to use a GPS either! Straight to the point, what I needed was a simple replacement of a regular GPS device, which will work offline. The crazy thing with that app was the way it downloads maps. Instead of doing it by simply giving me the option of choosing the name of a state from a list, I had to choose and put a whole area in circle and then push download. That’s absolutely ridiculous and confusing since you don’t have the slightest idea of what is downloaded. Plus, let say you want the map of Main downloaded, by putting Main in the circle, you also have to place some of the Canada’s area which I don’t care for! I rather stay stuck with Sygic! Three bucks are not a big deal, the problem is when something is absolutely not user friendly and makes you feel totally dumb!

It went from best to worst

I have to give them 1 star review because this app it’s a gps app that it suppose to give you constant position, but after several updates they messed up the gps function because after being using app everything looks great until you stop the boat. Then when you start approaching the fishing spot when you make a stop the boat the triangle icon that represents will remain frozen on the previous stop for about 60 seconds then the fishing spot will be missed by a lot because when the icon triangle starts moving again it jumps the the actual position and you will notice that you already has past the spot by a lot.
The only way no to missed the spot it’s to keep moving fast and throw mark line while moving on top of the fishing spot. In other words until they don’t fix this issue the motion x app it’s pure garbage. I will update this review when they update the issue because it used to be a 5 stars app

Let me explain better
I have all gps marine app in my iPhone and the only one that freezes it’s MotionX-GPS
When I stop or go very slow besides that I have att, claro, T-Mobile networks and when I use any of the networks changing also de iPhones I still experience the same problem it’s working fine until I stop or go very slow. It freezes and after 25 to 55 seconds if I increase the speed it will move again but by the I missed the fishing spot.

Please email our team and if you can please provide us with a GPX file of the track showing what you described. Our team would be happy to work with you to identify an issue on our end or be able to point to poor GPS conditions which can absolutely be the cause of what you experienced while fishing.
