Customer Reviews

  • Great value

    by Paparobo

    We love this app. Have used it on the coast and in a few lakes. Surprisingly accurate. Updates have been helpful. Have used to navigate on coast and find depth contours on 2 lakes also.

  • Helpful on water

    by Fend9

    Odds are I won't take my phone our for navigation unless. I want to check my routes in a Ron to transfer to my map, but this app no doubt simplifies it. So far the only changes I'd like to see is to trash the digi homescreen background or switch to a multicam - or provide optional camo for fun. Also the light button would be awesome if it activated the iphone 4's LED. I'll be testing the app more, but i definetly recommend it.

  • Boater's App

    by Stones49

    I have used it on my 3GS with OS4 and it showed great results. I navigate a 115ft yacht and it is so useful to be able to leave the brige at any time and still be able to check the boats location, direction and heading. I recommend anyone with a boat whether its 15ft or 300ft to purchase this wonderful app!

  • Awesome Application

    by Gne46

    However you can't search for charts by chart number and Since noaa charts are free for download on any device so ten bucks for a gps interface that doesn't work when your not in cell service seems rough. Get it to stitch charts together and bee able to search for charts by chart numbers and i will be stoked. If there was any way to connect the iPhone to an external gps that would bee the bees knees.

  • Now Working Smart on my board!

    by Brunb

    As a fisherman I like this application on my device its very funny thing for me I don't have that much techno knowledge about to use this app but just given a tried for the first time its working great and amazing thing is these maps I'm using since few months and got desired results and looking forward for new version on store!

  • Great App!

    by Anderneo

    App is great for the nautical information from along the coast to deep sea. It has cool features which are very useful working with the map. I have one suggestion that the inland lakes of Texas are missing and request to add them up in the coming versions would make it a 5 star app!

  • Nice

    by Screamingreelz

    Worked better than expected. Havent been offshore real far yet. Only 15 miles so far but plan on going out around 35 or 40 miles next week. Sceptical to see if itll work that far out. Not sure if program uses cell towers or an actual gps satellite. I hope it uses a satellite then i wont hv to worry about the distance issues offshore, but so far i absolutely love it!

  • Update works!

    by 1E1maniel

    App works pretty well!

  • Nice little app

    by Hugh_man

    The new free update made it work more better. I like having the app open while I drive and see myself move on the map and see the distance, angle change, Gps location while I drive around the coast. This thing finally works, it wasn’t worth a dollar before but now it works and its worth the price. I thought would delete this app after sending a mail to support but they assured me to update the map shortly and yes! they did. Now I'm keeping this app and use it frequently.

  • Useful

    by Rynebat

    I’m using this app since many months and can’t thank enough for the time I saved. Keep up the good work and I’m glad to pay for any flytomap product for my iphone.

  • Awesome Marine GPS

    by BES_LEY

    I use this app for every boating tour, it is completely accurate. It keeps record of every track that I’ve wanted and each of my buddys. No doubt about it, it’s worth every penny, I would pay more for this app without any doubt. Great investment!

  • Worth every penny

    by Rzares

    Incredible app. due to large number of map features it dominates other app's I'm using currently and coverage that allow me to manage my things in all ways when I'm out for tour.

  • Update!

    by BrianLLmro

    It's been very long the application has not updated, please do it AEAP.

  • Review 3

    by Paul Doo

    I emailed the makers of the app about a feature I think would be good and they emailed me back saying that they will probably add it! And I also suggest to add lakes of texas to make the map more better. This Is the best app and support ever!!!

  • Too nice

    by Betin6r

    This app is awesome! I never expected so many features in a single one and that too for a small price. Awesome.

  • App is great

    by Kelfut

    by Jelinaa

    This is the best app that I've bought so far and for sure I strongly recommend it to anyone who want increase it's faith in handy iPhone apps for water navigation.

  • Versatile App

    by arronet

    I also use it to look up things I'm not cool enough to know on my own. It's a handy app

  • The lake I take my boat is not the app anymore

    by Ted Sabala

    The lake I take my boat is not the app anymore Lake Conroe. I wish the would fix it.

  • Do not buy

    by Andywareagle

    This app is a total waste of money

  • Junk

    by cuz.19

    Do not buy. This app is junk!!! Information is very misleading!!!!!!!

  • Doesn't include any lake information

    by fasttr

    Even though the the write-up talks about lake maps, this product only covers the gulf coast of Texas. Very mis-leading. Just blew 3 bucks since I only needed lake maps.

  • Junk

    by Macjank

    Cheesy, generic map with little detail and barely any waterway names. Google map that came with my iphone4 is more helpful. Why would you want a marine navigation map with no reef names? Generally not at all impressed!

  • Got robbed

    by Lake runner

    This app claims Texas. It means only the coast. I won't use this app for anything. I want my money back!!

  • Texas map barely has anything in Texas

    by jsimoneaux

    Has just a few waterways along the coast No park maps, no interior lakes, nothing. And the info it does contain is incomplete. For example, the upper half of Galveston bay is completely devoid of any information. DO NOT BUY! U want my money back. RIP OFF!

  • VERY MISLEADING

    by Windrunner01

    Do not buy!!! This app was nothing as the description said. With 4 star ratings I was hoping it would be good.....nope!! I feel mislead on it's quality and function, it'd basically just google maps so youre better off just using google maps. I want my 3 bucks back!

  • Rats

    by therealpjpark

    Should have realized who the publisher was before downloading. By "Texas" they mean a little patch of Texas around the gulf.
