Garmin ActiveCaptain - Latest Quality Issues

What a mess
Garmin has created a night mare. There are multiple apps to operate, and none of the apps talk to one another. I bought a GPSMAP 86sci. It does not connect to active captain so the way points can't' be synced. And the way points, tracks and routes do not sync from Active Captain to EXPLORE, whatever that app is for, so the only way to get way points into the new handheld is to manually enter them by modifying the MARK command. Then, when you go through that cumbersome process, you can sync with EXPLORE. IT'S A MESS. Had I known, I never would have purchase the handheld inReach. The only thing I see using that for is if my ship is going down.

I bought the charts through this app thinking it would give me access on Garmin Express on Mac so that I could load them into my watch. It would not show up on my account and insisted I need the SD card. I tried to get a refund and was denied by the Play Store. When I contacted Garmin, to ask them to either refund or send me the SD card, they never responded to my emails (this was over a month ago). I'm out $150 with no way to get repaid.

The map is too about. It is almost out of the way. If the fish search side did not put a free national lake map, it was too about and difficult to understand somewhere. If you can put a nationwide lake map in the app★ 5. I also want to sync my Quick Draw to the app.

One specific problem really wrecks it
The app will not stop continually trying to transfer one chart. It says pending, shows a percentage, and then says complete, and just does this over and over again. As a result, I can't get QuickDraw or route information off of my chart plotter.

Terrible
All I want to do is download maps I bought. It freezes, removes things I already have, and generally doesn't work. Easier to rent a hot air balloon and draw my own charts

I mapped the tank, shared it in the community but it can't be seen. In the history of contribution to the community is, in the sonar there is but in the maps of the application is missing.

Hopelessly un intuitive
Why is it not made for pc too This one is not intuitive. Why can't you use BaseCamp on nautical charts too.
