Our Map Apps download directly to your mobile iPhone or Android unit. The App downloads accurate locations of fishing spots, boat ramps, marinas, and other fishing spots from the Hook-N-Line folded "hard copy" map directly into your mobile unit. These locations appear as small white dots overlaid on a Google Earth image. Also, the Hook-N-Line "hard copy" map fishing detail is shown as an overlay. This detail includes reefs, fishing areas, depths, obstructions, navigational aids (Buoys & day beacons, etc.), fishing, and hazard information. Your position on the map is shown as a little blue dot that moves around as you drive your boat from place to place on the water.
App Phone Area Coverage
Our Map App will work on your mobile device (I-Phones & Androids) for over 90% of the fishing areas shown.
(However, due to issues with the latest Apple updates, only Android devices are guaranteed to give you an accurate location).
If you are within approximately 10 miles of a cell phone tower, the App should work OK. There are many factors that affect this range: your network provider, the type of mobile phone, distance to the nearest cell tower, network extenders on your phone, to name a few. So far, tests done with real fishermen using their personal mobile phones have been 100%. Fishing guides I have talked to up and down the Texas coast have good coverage with a few dead zones. The good news is that new towers are going up all the time, which will improve coverage.
