Update your charts

Navionics is devoted to continously enhance cartography with a one-of-a-kind update program. We make around 2,000 updates to our Nautical Chart daily by integrating Notices to Mariners, new publications, our own survey and reports from our users. Plus several thousand updates to SonarChart™ and Community Edits.

For one year

With Navionics Updates, you get our latest charts using a Navionics card or one from a wide range of other manufacturers. By doing so, you get one year of Freshest Data service, which allows download of Nautical Chart, SonarChart, Community Edits and daily updates.


Use other manufacturers' cards to activate updates!

Ask your dealer for Navionics Updates and switch from a C-MAP, Fishing Hot Spots, Garmin, LakeMaster, Lowrance, or TrakMaps card to Navionics. You will get our most updated charts and all the value of Navionics+ at a very modest price.

Update online

Plug your old Navionics card in and click Downloads & Updates, then proceed with purchase and download as much as your card can take. This online service is compatible with Navionics+, Gold, HotMaps Premium, Marine & Lakes USA, Silver, any card bundled with a plotter or SonarChart™ for Garmin GPS. If your card is smaller than 2 GB, ask your dealer for a Navionics Updates card (see  below).

Or ask your dealer

Get updated charts using Navionics or other manufacturers’ cards by purchasing a Navionics Updates card from a dealer shop or online store. Check compatible cards then connect your new card to your computer and click Downloads & Updates.


Navionics Updates is a versatile and innovative product. In stores across the world, you may find it either in the partially preloaded or in the fully downloadable versions. Don’t forget to activate your card before you go boating! The Freshest Data service allows you to download marine and lakes content and chart layers with great flexibility for one year.


Navionics Updates needs to be activated online before using. You need your old card to do it. This video shows the process for the downloadable version. The preloaded is even simpler.

By order of the Hong Kong Government SAR we have removed all data originating from them. Navionics has applied for a license but regrettably their response is they do not permit any third party to sell their cartographic data.  We will continue to pursue a suitable remedy.  For any further details please directly contact Mr. Michael CM CHAU, Deputy Hydrographer, Marine Department, Hong Kong Government SAR michaelchau@mardep.gov.hk.
