I had an older Navionics app that was great. I broke the phone and when I went to re-load the app software, my previous app was no longer available. I downloaded the next available app and I'm not as happy with it. The previous app had all the the U.S. This later app has U.S. and Canada, but you physically select the area you want to have, then you download it. That wasn't a big deal. But one time I went to open it up and the app gave me an error message that it couldn't validate my license. Well, it couldn't validate it because I didn't have 3-G coverage where I was. Crap, is the thing even going to work when we're far from cell phone service? The old version did. I'm not so sure about the newer version.
