Does anyone have any good recommendations for mapping and GPS apps for an iPhone? I don't run a navigation / fish finder unit on my smaller skiff and looking for best apps to use to navigate different waters with? Any free ones?

I’ve been using Gaia GPS for years as my go-to for backpacking and hunting. Also use it when out in my kayaks since I don’t want to deal with a battery and dedicated fishfinder/gps. Allows specified map areas to be downloaded to the device for when you have slow or non-existent cell coverage. I also wanted one that would allow for manual entry of coordinates to mark waypoints. A lot of the ones I had looked at didn’t allow me to easily re-enter direct from a computer my old treestand locations, etc. Can also share maps, waypoints, etc with friends.

I use Navionics. You’d be hard pressed though to find a free one that’s worth anything. You get a 7 day free trial and they don’t just automatically bill you. The subscription is $21.99 a year, but you get the most up to date charts and marina information. There’s all kinds of features included. You can also download maps for when you don’t have a data connection that uses your device’s GPS so you can still operate in real time.
