iNavX costs $50. I have all of the different navigation

and iPad and I'm working closely with multiple developers who have products out now on putting ActiveCaptain support into their products (Navimatics exists today with support).
I too find iNavX difficult to like while being the most expensive product available. I think it's user-hostile. For $50, I expected it to be a lot better.
There was another forum, which I won't mention, that provides iNavX support. I explained specific reasons why the product had problems - heck, I'm a developer too and I've written commercial chartplotter
applications myself - even for phones! To be fair, a few of my suggestions were adopted but the major ones are still glaring holes in usability. The moderator said that I was being unfair and threatened removing me from the site, proving his point by showing the number of 5 star reviews
iNavX had received. Today it has 114.
I pointed out that iNavX also had a substantial number of 1 star reviews
too which is a very bad sign. Today it has 54 1 star reviews. This is just unacceptable for a $50 app where most others are less than half that price
Soon after that posting
, I was banned from the site.
The truth is sometimes too much to see in print.
