Navionics Issue

4 posts in this topic

Just Downloaded Navionics USA on a new phone and discovered that the satellite map of my house has the street incorrectly named.  Wondering if anyone else has experienced this with Navionics or any other mapping apps, etc.?  Any ideas as to who to contact to correct this?  We have lived at same address for 38 yrs and never had a problem until mapquest and other services came into play.  Even had Chinese food delivery person go ballistic towards our daughter, insisting she didn't know our address.  What a complicated place the world has become.

No, but I was just at thanksgiving at someone where there are two houses, one at 7 xxx lane, and the other at 7 E. xxx lane.  I guessed wrong the first time....Sat in the driveway wondering where everyone is...  :grin:

 

The mapping folks get the information from some unit of government, I believe.   You might check with the city or county to see if they have it right on their official maps.   If they do, then contact the mapping services.   They typically have a way to tell them about corrections.  At least I am pretty sure google does.

Navionics focus is on water, lakes and lake contour. They use a 3rd party map form Thunderforce.Data Open Street Map to paint the Satellite and Terrain maps. If you go to Terrain you will see in the lower left portion of your screen the 3rd party mapper. If you drag or click on the line, it will link you to the map company site. In Terrain mode, and if your phone is sensitive every time you drag you finger over the line, it will link you to the 3rd party site. To avoid this, use the No Overlay land screen.

 

If you want a great street map, download the free WAZE map. Quite accurate and if not, you can change the map within 1 mile of an area you drive.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
