Anyone running this app and what do you think? If your already running a version on a couple of HBs onboard, how is the phone app beneficial, thanks in advance to all those that chime in.

I have the Mobile App on Android smartphones, an iPad and a couple of Android tablets.
I also use Navionics map cards in four Humminbird units.

I use the App for Sonar Charts Live and for reference when discussing fishing locations and map details when I don't have my units handy.

It is a mobile device battery killer if you expect to use it for much navigation. Works great though.

I used mine to salvage a trip on a new to me lake when my combo gps/ff decided it was done working. Found the spot I'd planned on targeting and caught fish.

I also use it planning trips and when I'm just sitting around somewhere day dreaming about going fishing.

I recommend anyone that owns a boat to have it on their phones. It's a great tool and comes in very handy in a pinch.
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

I have the Navionics app on my phone. I use it as a backup in case my graph/gps fails. I have found it to be quite accurate.

I have had the iPhone and iPad app for some time. I use it at home when I'm thinking about some new water I want to fish the next day. I use to take my iPad out on the boat with me before I bought my first 1198. It's a great app and I beleive it was free when I got it.

I have it on my iphone. Comes in handy when discussing fishing spots with someone and I like it much better than games for a time killer.

Also for anyone running the app, with the newest partnership with vexilar, you can now run split screen on your phone or tablet sonar and mapping, as well as being able to participate in Sonar Charts live.
