Humminbird’s new ION & ONIX Series offer Navionics compatibility01 November 2013Category:SonarCharts™; Navionics+; Gold; Navionics; Platinum+; HotMaps Platinum; Humminbird; ONIX; ION
The ION Series multi-function displays and ONIX Series all-in-one systems, launched by Humminbird at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (Oct. 31 – Nov. 4, 2013), offer compatibility with the entire Navionics product line, giving boaters freedom to choose the chart card that best suits their needs.
Navionics+ is an excellent choice because it allows customers to simply download all their favorite areas, both marine and lakes, to their Navionics+ card. Navionics+ includes Nautical Charts, SonarCharts™, and Community Edits.
SonarCharts™, available in many areas around the world, is an HD bathymetry map, great for locating fishing areas and revealing more bottom contour detail. It reflects ever-changing conditions by integrating sonar logs from the Navionics Community with existing data, and can be accessed on ION and ONIX with a few quick button taps. Sonar logs recorded on Humminbird units can be uploaded to Navionics at any time, and are integrated within about one week, allowing customers to improve charts for their local areas.
ION and ONIX are the first Humminbird products to enable viewing of Navionics Community Edits, hundreds of thousands of localized edits added by mobile users every day, which can be downloaded to the chart through Freshest Data, creating an amazing resource for boaters.
To take full advantage of available functionality, Navionics Platinum+ marine charts and HotMaps Platinum lake maps offer exclusive features such as Satellite Overlay, 3D View and Panoramic Port Pictures in addition to the Nautical Charts, SonarCharts™ and Community Edits.
All new Navionics products include 12 months of unlimited Freshest Data updates.
