Navionics won't open

8 posts in this topic

I haven't used my Navionics app for awhile but when I went to open it the other day it only opens to the home screen and then i see a spinning icon like its trying to load but never does.  It just sits on that screen and the icon keeps spinning.  I have tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it but no change.

I'm using a Galaxy S6 and have used it on this phone just fine in the past.  

Any thought son a fix?  I have heard they now require a annual subcription but it sounded like the basic version should still work.  Is that correct?  I haven't seen anything in the app or in the play store about a renewal subscription but then again i can't open the app so see it its in there.

works fine for me I just opened it on my iphone6 and I dont have an annual subscription just the basic $9.99 version.

do you have the app up to date? did you try and reboot your phone? i dont remember how been a while since I have had an android phone but is there a way to force stop the app and then clear the cache? You could try that and then attempt to log back in.

The other thing is do you have it set to only download update on wifi only?

It was all up to date and I had done all of the force stop stuff several times.  

I just came back from lunch and tried it again and wouldn't you know it works now.  I didn't do anything differently just hit the app button and this time it worked right away.  Go figure.  

Now that I'm into the app everything is the same and I don't see any subscription info so I assume its all good to go.

Mine has sometimes done that when I have a lousy internet connection.

I don't believe it should require an internet connection to open the app since its downloaded onto my phone along with all of the maps I've downloaded.  I've used the app in the BWCA miles away from the nearest cell signal not to mention internet connection and it worked prefectly.  Now I'm here sitting in the office with a solid wifi signal and it wouldn't open, also wouldn't open at home with wifi.  It opened ok for awhile after lunch but now won't open again.

The Navonics boating app resides on your cell phone. It does not require WiFi to open and use. Wifi is necessary when you re-install the app from Google Play. I say Google play as that is where android phones get their apps.  Suggest you go to Google Play, than uninstall and download and install. Navionics released an update on May 10, 2016 that fixed a bunch of bugs and did a great improvement on the GPS refresh and tracking form a 30 to 45 second refresh to refresh every 1/2 to 1 second. After you re-install you will need to again download your lake region.

It has been opening the last few times I tried, crossing my fingers that I've got it resolved.

    •     thanks pikestabber!!!  that will work!!!!
    • One of the young fellas in the extended family thinks he needs to buy a Bushmaster 5.5 rifle for general use and because he is now living in what he calls a "nervous tension" part of the Twin Cities.  Franky, it is all "nervous tension" to me but never mind,  what do those of you who actually own and shoot Bushmaster rifles,   about which I know nothing, think of them for quality, price and dependability. Personally, I'd rather have a Beretta 92FS or a nice little Ruger LC9mm and a REAL rifle is a bolt action, blued metal work of art with a birds-eye maple or burled walnut stock!
    • Cool pics, good job.
    • Wisconsin was a bust.   There were plenty of birds around, but they clearly are well educated when it comes to hunters.  Most hens were going to nests early, but nothing would respond to or come to calls of any kind.  I watched many birds that I would call to in a field turn and walk away, even jakes and gobblers with no hens.  Some birds would sprint out of sight!    I did come very close to a nice gobbler but forgot my range finder in my blind and didn't shoot when I thought he was a bit too far.  Ranging the area later proved otherwise...  I also had another group with a nice gobbler and a few hens that I had been chasing multiple times, they started going away from my calling, so I crawled up behind some thick pine trees to get close for an ambush shot.  Of course a hen busted me at 15yd and they disappeared...     After two solid days of rain, and this morning's rain with zero birds heard or seen I packed up and went home.  My brother called to tell me he shot a bird in the spot he told me I should go to...    All in all I only heard two gobblers actually gobble in three hard days of hunting, neither would come to me.  Many more seen.  I only heard one hen yelp back to me, again saw many others that would not make a peep...
    • So as far as anyway knows there should be no adverse effects except for extra work in the fall.
    • At my age Eyeguy I'm just trying not to lose too many.
    •   Sorry. Cell service down there was horrible. Had to wait till I got back to a real computer.
    • Kept me waiting long enough  congratulations Don
    • another good trick for good maters is once the tomatoes start forming is to put a tablespoon of epsom salt by the stalk about every 3rd-4th watering!!!!!!!! i'm a believer!!!!!!!
