Javerne, Kenya receives Navionics charts ordered on Nautic Way, and shipped by DHL
Since January 1, 2022, Navionics no longer sells charts in Compact Flash format
In 1984, Navionics revolutionized recreational boating by marketing the world's first digital chart reader, called Geonav. Almost 40 years later, Navionics has the world's largest nautical and inland waterway chart database.
In 2017, Garmin bought Navionics, although Garmin already has its own electronic cartography called BlueChart. It was therefore necessary for the cartographers of Navionics and Garmin to merge. From now on, Navionics and BlueChart offer similar charts concerning geographical footprints (coverage area), colors, etc., but each of these brands remains dedicated: BlueChart for Garmin plotters and Navionics for Simrad, Lowrance, Humminbird plotters,. ..
Navionics charts change name
At the start of 2022, Navionics is completely revising its digital chart catalog.
The charts change their name, their numbering and the geographic footprints are simplified, there are 2 charts sizes and 2 levels of detail: Large and Regular. For the colors used, they are the same in both universes.
The Navionics+ XL9 become the Navionics+ Large
Navionics+ Small becomes Navionics+ Regular
The Platinium+ XL become the Platinium+ Regular
The Platinium+ XL3 become the Platinium+ Large
Among the innovations, we note:
The improvement of the autoguidance function (which is now called Autoguidance +), which is no longer content to be a simple algorithm, but calculates the route according to the boat's draft and integrates the routes already taken by the users.
Charts are updated daily. When purchasing, you benefit from a one-year subscription including updates and the ability to synchronize a mobile with the chartplotters via the ActiveCaptain or Navionics Boating applications.
A high-end version, called Vision+, includes all the standard features of Garmin Navionics+, plus terrain shading, 3D views, high-resolution satellite images, aerial photos, etc. This version is particularly awaited by fisherman.
Navionics electronic charts are ideal for recreational boating, they are accessible to everyone and easy to use. The marine cartography offered by Navionics offers global coverage and very good value for money. These electronic charts are compatible with most devices and nautical chart readers. With Navionics charts, you will be able to sail many miles with your pleasure boat, discover wonderful anchorages, do coastal or offshore navigation.
