    Active Captain used to be a great app. Since garmin has had it I've watched the app slip slide and away. Trying to get it functional is an adventure in exasperation. Having installed it multiple times, resetting things etc, I'm no further ahead than I was a week ago. The shortsighted development, the inconsistencies, the bugs, the incredibly confusing UI setup, it epitomizes what software should not be. Wanna waste incredible amounts of time? Look no further. Install this PIA.

    Impossible to use. Maybe being a software developer put me at a disadvantage but trying to connect to my chartplotter is incredibly frustrating. I can connect to the plotters WiFi fine but it says there are no compatible devices. The really need to do some basic usability testing.

    Excellent and easy app to use. Gives you chart access on your phone as well as vision of your plotter screen and easy access to chart and garmin device updates. Use it all the time.

    No depth. No anchorages, no wind farms. Nothing on the chart at all to navigate by. You be better off with a chart drawn by a drunken sailor.

    Unreliable. Won't stay connected. Even when connected notifications don't work.

    This app is really easy to use. I've used it to update the software on my plotter and radar and to update the charts in both my plotters. The app is very intuitive and let's you know when updates are available. It also updates the information from Active Captain and transfers it to my primary plotter. Now I can see all the map icons with the latest data. Great for keeping you out of trouble.

    The last update killed the app for me. I have uninstalled, cleared all data from the phone and reinstalled the app and I cannot get access to the ActivaCaptain Community data. Tech support says wait for download, but I have been waiting days and nothing changing. I also dont have the update aptivecaptain community on the map screen, only the quickdraw community. I loved this app before now....

    Great app every boater should have! I am currently on a 2500 mile trip around the gulf coast to the Atlantic. Can not imagine not having this app for locating everything from anchorages, fuel docks, marinas and even boat service.

    Very complicated...I am certain there are updates for my GPSMap 1022xsv but I can't find a way to get to it. It shows no updates to lead me to, yet my unit was bought in 2019. Dunno why you have to complicate the procedure if I am registered via Active Captain and my unit shows in the app. Jesus

    Terrible! Garmin appear to have recently disconnected AC "Community" from the AC App and downloading Community data in the App is no longer an option; discovered this when I downloaded the App to a new Android tablet. So the "free" App is now useless if you don't have a Garmin device or the right kind of Garmin device! Luckily I still have the AC App on my phone with Community data downloaded... but not sure if it will update in the future.....
