Globally, we make thousands of updates to our cartography and product features every day. Among them, we recently renewed the Satellite Images of Platinum+ in New Zealand.
Satellite Images, set as an additional overlay on Navionics charts, greatly improve situational awareness. This is useful especially on shallow water, where they easily show up breaking shoals and sand bars, and in ports and marinas, where the aerial view of coastal areas and surroundings helps choosing your destinations.
If, for example, you are planning to cruise to Bay of Islands and explore Waiheke Island close to Auckland or to sail across Marlborough Sounds, satellite images will surely come in handy.
If you are thinking of destinations such as Bay of Plenty, The Coromandel or Sandspit Channel on the Matakana Coast to go fishing for species like Kawahi, Snapper or Kingies, overlay images will help to spot underwater features and structures when looking for best fishing areas.
Satellite Images, a fundamental reference, are exclusively available with the Platinum+ chart card, that also provides exclusive 3D View and panoramic photos. Of course, Platinum+ also includes all Navionics+ charts and features: Nautical Chart, SonarChart™, Community Edits and free daily updates for one year.
