(We recommend purchasing a quality waterproof case so you do not end up damaging your phone)

NB: remember - while we have tried our utmost to allow great battery life with the app running (we have regularly managed 8hrs+ paddle time) continued use of GPS in the background can dramatically decrease battery life of both the Apple Watch and iPhone!

The subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current charging period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. Auto-renewal may be turned off by the user by visiting Account Settings after purchase.

Love the app, does what I need and then some

I first tried the app about 6 months ago, kept to the free option. Fear of commitment, sure it’s only $6? a month but I didn’t want to pull the trigger. Wanted to make sure I really liked it and would use it. Well I liked it, and I used it. Did the monthly to see if the other features would be to my benefit, both my wife and I use it. After using up the monthly we decided to go with the family subscription. It’s not on option through the app but it is through the IOS substitution settings. The app didn’t recognize the subscription, I emailed the staff at paddler. They were responsive and took care of the problem. Two things I would like to see in the app, unless I just could figure it out. 1. The ability to select each session to back it up as a batch instead of having to do each one individually. 2. Family subscription option from within the paddler app instead of just the individual monthly and individual yearly. Other then that thank you guys for taking care of the problem I experienced and for providing a great app. HIGHLY RECOMMEND PADDLER FOR THOSE ON THE FENCE about buying it.

Hey there, thanks so much for your review and thank you for your patience in sticking it out with us while we got that sorted. We're stoked to have you and your wife all set up on Paddle Logger Pro and you know where to find us if there's anything else you guys need!

A must for the solo paddler

Your number one safety gear is your life vest. Number two is a cell phone in a waterproof case tied to your life vest with Paddle Logger Pro installed. Both of my kids get a text message when I head out and can follow my progress. If you need help, one click and even someone 3000 miles away can send help to your exact coordinates. I stopped for a long time to watch a bird, my son noticed I wasn’t moving on the map and texted to see if I was OK- it works!
I appreciate all the other features like being able to look at maps of past trips, distance traveled, speed in 1 mile splits, automatic connections to photographs etc. but the safety aspect gives me the confidence to paddle alone even in cold weather.
Made a pouch for my phone and attached it to the front of the life vest so the string doesn’t get in my way. Bonus: makes it easier to grab it fast to take photos.

I have been using Paddle Logger for some time. It has issues but all-in-all it was a good app ... until a few days ago. I was on the water and ready to take off. I hit Start. A message came up to enter a PiT contact. There was no way to bypass or delay this requirement! I tried going back to start several times. The message kept coming up. It would not let me proceed without filling out a PiT contact. I did not have my reading glasses so I couldn’t have filled out the PiT contact even if I wanted to! I could not use the app that day! I had an app I use for walking so I changed to that app and was able to record the data; otherwise I would have lost the data for that day. I am so appalled by this requirement to fill in data before I could continue to use the app on so many levels that it’s hard to know where to start, so I’ll simply end. I will not be using this app again. I also would caution anyone considering buying this app that unless you don’t mind mandatory, intrusive and unwarranted data collection in an app you are charged for, you are better off using another of the exercise apps. Several that are designed for bicycling or walking can also be used for paddling and rowing.

Hi again, thanks for getting in contact. I wanted to explain a few things regarding PiT. Paddler in Trouble is a safety service that sends a message to a contact on your behalf should you get into difficulty on the water. It is not mandatory. It is part of our Pro package and you are able to turn it off on the home page of the app if it is a service you do not wish to use. The bar above the taskbar at the bottom of the screen on the start page is the PiT bar. The left hand toggle says Off. Just make sure it is set to off and you will be good to go. With it switched off, you will not be asked to enter details as it requires at least one designated emergency contact. If you have a concern. I will though reiterate we have no interest in your personal details, numbers are anonymous and automated in a way we are unable to access them. I hope that alays any fears, do get in touch if you have any other queries, thanks, David

Hi Capt M14, Love your suggestions. That is something we could do to improve the image taking capability of the app. Especially for wildlife spotting! Regarding the pause issue, get that it may be better to have a hold to pause. When you say that you may have knocked it, do remember that the app will still track when the screen is locked - which will mitigate any accidental pausing. Please do keep an eye out for your suggestions in the future!! Cheers, David
