Navionics Issue

Recommended Posts

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 never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
