For $15 you get Canada too. Anyone can use it, there's no extra costs. Most fishable lakes of any size are included but not remote tiny ones.

It is only $10 for the US maps, the only time you will need to pay more is if you want maps of non US areas. I use navionics all the time and love it. It uses the GPS on your phone to show where you are on the lake. Most of the time it is spot on, and on rare occasions it is off by a couple yards, but it gets you in the general area you want to be in.

Its very nice and inexpensive under $15 from iTunes or Google Play. The nice thing is that once you install it, if you get a new phone it will go with you to the next phone since its synched up to the account, not the phone.

There are no additional annual fees, doesn't cost anything else to use.

It is certainly worth the money. I have been using it for many years and it has helped greatly.

no just buy the app from the app store and it will download to the phone then all you have to do is push the icon on the screen of the phone to use! simple as that

I have Navonics too, but use mostly Lakemaster on my GPS. On Navonics, how do you save your spots so that other people can't see it? Also, how so you have it navigate you to a certain spot on the lake?

In the Settings menu turn OFF the Community Edits and Share Tracks options.

Search your lake, find the spot on the lake you want to fish, put a "marker pin" on that spot, hit the Start button to "go to"

How do you know what lakes it covers? Is there a list?
Go to their site and click on the Web App tab. That will give you an idea on how detailed a lake map you will get.
