Marine or lakes HD - navionics

Has anyone tried any apps from navionics? Are they worth it? I was looking at the Lakes: US East HD app.

No idea about the lakes or the US but i have found the local maps
to be incredibly useful.
Great for quick planning in the pub.
Fab for quick reference on the water or coming into tight moorings. (So
much easier than scrambling around with paper charts in a tight cockpit)
Just make sure you have done your research on paper charts and coastal pilot.
The great thing is that the charts are locally stored so if you have no
signal they still work. This happens where I sail frequently.
Easily the best app I have bought.

Thanks for the response. The paper charts are kind of hard to work with when it is windy so figured this may work to get a feel for the navionics products before I buy the lowrance hds-10

I actually prefer the iNavX software and charts. As a professional mariner, I'm out there every day and keep my iPad on the dash with the software running as a backup to my chartplotter.

Actually to follow up my post above, I would agree with risalvor. iNavX is
a bit better but I was given the Navionics app so I can't complain.

Even given the above, Navionics is still a great app.

I recently purchased iNavX, and have been very happy. It is a costly app, $ 49.99, but well worth it. You will also have to purchase the appropriate map, $10. This is a nice thing to have on a dark night, sure beats running into an island!
