At the Recreational Fishing Alliance (RFA), we understand our members have a passion for fishing unlike any other activity in life - it's an obsession that drives each one of us to push the boundaries in pursuit of new hot spots and locales.
Technologically speaking, RFA members are finding that about the hottest app for fishing today is available from the folks at Navionics, the leader in location-based services!
Right now, you can download the new Navionics Boating Intro app
for FREE, and then you can begin exploring on government charts for the U.S., included for free on iPhone, iPad and Android. Then start to plan your routes, measure distances, or check wind forecasts.
Record data during your next fishing trip - tracks show the distance, speed and duration of your trips. Add markers to key fishing areas you want to target or tag the spot where you landed the big one!
You'll also be able to save your routes, tracks, markers, and photos to share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, or via email.
At any time, you purchase the chart coverage area you need for anywhere in the world, and get the same detailed charts found on plotters. Then access a boatload of georeferenced content including the largest database of POIs, in addition to valuable contributions made by other users in Community Edits ranging from hazards and temporary nav aids to prime fishing spots and more.
Get the most out of the app by tapping into great advanced feature upgrades available In-App. On iPhone, iPad and Android transform the map's display with Advanced Map Options. Or get detailed route planning or a suggested course for a trip.
