Navionics announced its new electronic chart standard, Navionics+, and an upgrade for existing charts, Navionics Updates. Providing access to its innovative Freshest Data, Navionics’ new products give owners the latest cartography and boating information available for their GPS chartplotters.
With Navionics+, customers can select and download any amount of content from one of seven extensive global regions. The US & Canada region, for example, allows boaters to choose both freshwater and saltwater charts throughout the entire region. In addition, Navionics+ gives boaters the ability to enhance their charts with the sonar logs they collect; one year of Freshest Data updates that includes Nautical Charts, SonarCharts and Community Edits; and the ability to sync with Navionics mobile and web apps.
Navionics Updates is a method for current owners of Navionics charts to access all Navionics+ capabilities and features. Eligible products include Silver, Gold and Platinum+ marine charts, HotMaps Premium and HotMaps Platinum lake maps, and Marine & Lakes USA. After purchasing Navionics Updates, customers may choose one of seven global regions to download. Community Edits allows boat enthusiasts to contribute to their own electronic chart in a simple and direct way, as well as benefit from other users’ participation.
Navionics+ is priced at $179 for the US and Canada, and $249 for other global regions, with an additional fee for Australia and New Zealand; Navionics Updates is priced at $99. Both products are available from Navionics resellers worldwide.
