Default Lake Winni App

I recently upgraded my iPhone IOS 11 and I went to check if my app would work and it wonít. Has anyone checked this. Also, is there another App to download. I loves this app and it was great to use!

The Lake Winni app that was invited as a navigational tool that cost 9.99 a couple of years ago. Not to be mistaken with this forum app rather the navigational app that was created.

The Winni app to which you refer no longer works with new IOS and, as far as I can tell, there is no update. I, too, really liked this app.

The Navagation App was developed by a forum member, canít remember his name Iím sure someone here does and has not worked in a few years. If i remember correctly it was pretty expensive, 20.00-30.00 but it did work well. Maybe there was not enough interest to continue development for the IOS upgrades.

I donít think it was that expensive and it worked all this past summer for me. It is still on my iPad...just says needs update and no update is available. I really liked it. I did not use it to plot course, but the GPS function kept me away from the Witches.

What feature(s) did it have above-and-beyond the Navionics app that everyone liked? I never got a chance to use the Lake Winni app but I use the Navionics app.

ps. I am an iOS developer...

Agree, the Bizer made it more user friendly for me.

Default Winni Map App

The map was $29.99 on the Apple app store. The developer was Brad Goodwin. He was responsive at the beginning but is nowhere to be found now. I keep an old ipad with the map in case I need itl

I prefer Bizer in all things Winnipesaukee.... but the Navionics app works better with than the old Winni app and gets updated regularly. its a cross platform app that works on apple and android devices.

I run it on an old ipad mini with a Lifeproof case. (you need a cellular capable tablet)

Was the Navionics app about $50? And was there a specific lakes version?

I use Navionics on nny phone. Use a suction mount on the dash. Works slick for cheap money. I find it very accurate
