Discontinuation of Navionics First Generation Apps for iOS/Apple

« Go Back



The first generation Navionics mobile apps were discontinued in the Fall of 2010 and updates to iOS 11 or later will cause these apps to be unusable.

When the new mobile apps were released, a banner ad was deployed within our first generation apps indicating they were being removed from iTunes. We also indicated the original apps would no longer be offered updates or support and we could not guarantee their functionality with future iOS releases.
At the time we also encouraged users to migrate to our new application for its larger coverage area, updated chart data, and many new features. These new features were a result of feedback we received from our users; however, they were not possible to include with the build of the original apps.  The new apps were also offered at a discounted price for a limited time during the initial release of the product.  Most of our users took that opportunity to purchase our new apps.
