A few years ago, Navionics® became a part of the Garmin family, joining forces as leaders in the marine industry to generate the best mapping solutions for boaters, anglers and sailors alike. A shared, deep-rooted knowledge of the industry has allowed Garmin and Navionics to deliver widespread global coverage and feature-rich content that can help further any of your passions at the lake or on the sea. Thanks to this integration Navionics users can get world-leading cartography content right to their Navionics-compatible chartplotter or compatible mobile device.

But it doesn’t stop there. You’ll get a slew of additional features for your on-the-water hobbies:

Superior Coverage That Never Stops Evolving

Weather, temperature, tides and more can all contribute to changes in the ocean floor or lake bottom, which means that frequent updates are a key piece of the puzzle when it comes to solid, onboard mapping. Integrated Garmin and Navionics detail provides a clear advantage of continuous improvement and unparalleled coverage. With a team of skilled cartographers working year-round, this content only continues to expand across the world with each new release, with up to 5,000 updates per day.

On the coasts, across the ocean or completely landlocked: Navionics+, Platinum+ coastal charts and inland maps offer actively updated chart content. Not to mention, chart updates are quick and easy to download right to your chartplotter or compatible mobile device Navionics Chart Installer or via the Plotter Sync feature of the Boating app2 or directly to the Boating app on your compatible mobile device. To view the latest updates between each new cartography release, check out the interactive Navionics Heatmap.

Enhanced Visibility Above and Below Your Boat with Premium Content

Explore coastlines and lake bottoms with feature-rich premium overlays3, such as high-resolution satellite imagery and unique 3-D views. Whether you’re trolling lakes or cruising coastlines, premium overlays and features – found exclusively in Platinum+ coastal charts inland maps – equip boaters and anglers with advanced chart detail and up to 0,5 m contours so situational awareness is never in question.

A Rich Blend of Color and Shadow

Navigate more intuitively and explore with a premium SonarChart™ Shading and relief shading overlays included in Platinum+4 Navionics’s high-resolution relief shading gives you an easy-to-interpret, clear view of the ocean or lake bottom structure than contour lines alone.

By considering your desired depth, overhead clearance and other preferences, Dock-to-dock Autorouting will calculate the best route and overlay a suggested path right to your destination.
