Maine B.A.S.S. Nation members can Beta test Navico's new fishing app!

We are looking for Maine BASS Nation members with iPhones to Beta test Navico’s newest digital product, the GoFree Hooked app. (Navico is the parent company of Lowrance). Anglers can use this great new app to log fish catches and hold a few “braggin’ rights” tournaments with their fishing buddies. If you know of some anglers that would be interested in beta-testing this new app.

Here’s a little more information about the app: With the app Go Free Hooked app, you use your smart-phone to log fish-catch details and photos, compete in live-leaderboard tournaments, and populate Insight Genesis maps with pins marking the locations of the fish you catch — whether you hooked ‘em in your boat, a buddy’s boat, or from shore. What’s more, those pins can be exported later for use in Lowrance or Simrad unit(s) on the water. And it’s all private. The location of any fish-catch you log with GoFree Hooked is automatically marked with a pin in the online displays of both custom-made Insight Genesis maps and personals view of Insight Genesis Social Map charts. Click on the pin to see all the details about the catch you logged with the app — species, weight, length, bait type and color, depth, cover and/or structure, etc. Those pins — along with your notes — can then be converted easily to a GPX file, saved to an SD (or micro-SD) card, and imported as waypoints into your compatible Lowrance or Simrad sonar/GPS unit. Learn more about that functionality in this blog article:

Anglers can sign up for the app’s Beta Test here: (after clicking this link, you’ll see the sign-up area at the bottom of the page at the link) Keep in mind that the app is under development. It’s stable, but there is the possibility that not all functionality is intact and it may even crash. That is why we need your input, ideas and diversity of experience. For now, only anglers with iPhones should join the Beta test, Android Beta tests are scheduled for a later date.
