Help for iNavX in French

iNavX Help is default integrated in English. The French Help is only available if you have an internet connection (WiFi ou 3G). The reason is that the French help has many screenshots, which makes a file with a size incompatible, to date, with the limit imposed by Apple for the maximum size of their applications. It is, thus, only accessible through a web link.

To have French Help, when you have no network connection, you can download it in PDF file from your iPhone or iPad : I am updating systematically on iNavX page from my website, bottom page. A long press on the icon of the file will open in iBooks where it will be recorded and will be available for offline viewing.

  1. Hello,
    I fell for the iPad, installed 2 chart regions, 46 and 3. XG. Date to the Canet 21, bound to Martinique. I'll be able to test all this … At first, Mac ENC UI is not bad. There is the banner on top, seeing – I really have to look my COG SOG compared to raising the Way Point and distance, + l’ETA. I added Numbers and transferred my logbook. So in principle I can do everything on IPAD, excluding management of Iridium and reading files received at sea. But suddenly I'll put the mac free. Ah yes, one last thing, temperature, with water has more 35, °C sun above, Macs have trouble, I'll see if the heat a little less iPad. News from my back and thank you for your clarification, I will view the COG.

  2. Thank you very much,
    Ideally, a user manual in text format as it is sometimes used when offline far inavX ratings.
    Again thank you for all your info

  3. I lost to Brazil twice all my cards iNavX. Even Brazilian cards. Definitely an update of O. S. during a stopover. Without warning. Lives Apple iOS 5 and IOS 6. January 2013 and March 2013.
    Reload. As soon as possible through internet by x-. But what about in two years ?
    Question how to save on PC and restore his cards on the iPad ?
    awesome iNavX 9000 carefree miles but when the cards are gone.
    If added currents, is even better.

    • For loss cards in January and March 2013, I am extremely surprised. I did all the updates O. S. from my iPad 1 and iPad 3 and have never lost a single Navionics. However, to a newer version of iNavX, maps were deleted by selecting “Update Chart List” and selecting “Yes” the following alert. This is no longer the case now.
      Anyway, Simply send an email to explaining the problem and they will reactivate your folios purchased.
      You can save the contents of your iPad with iTunes on PC, or with iCloud. If something goes wrong you can restore your data.
