escape the ordinary.

Let us be your guide

Established in 1984, in Viareggio, Italy, Navionics® produces electronic charts for the leisure boating market.

Our mission is to delight our customer by producing market leading intuitive and innovative marine cartography content and features through the use of creativity, engineering excellence through market knowledge and efficient production procedures.

Looking ahead from the start

We were born from a revolutionary idea: the world's first electronic chart display, or chartplotter.

Now we use location services every day on our mobile devices, and maybe even take them for granted. But, think about it: how pioneering is that?

This state of mind is what Navionics® is founded on and our focus for future goals.

Driven to lead

We want to expand as the global leader in marine content and location-based services built on innovation derived from our lifestyle appreciation, digital expertise and crowdsourcing.

Our cartography database is the world's largest and includes oceans, seas, rivers and more than 38,000 lakes. Navionics makes this unique and valuable content available to boaters for use in GPS chartplotters, and within our app for Apple® and Android™ devices.

Covering the globe

Based in Viareggio, Italy, Navionics operates its U.S. headquarters in New Bedford, MA, and worldwide offices in the UK, India and Australia.

A lifestyle team

We are boaters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts.

We dream up, develop, market and support products that we would use.

We won't settle for anything less.

A Garmin company

A win for every boater

Since Garmin® and Navionics came together in 2017, we have been comparing and combining the best of our data and technology to produce superior cartography products.

This blending is a win for every boater: Navionics cartography is updated daily and new Garmin cartography featuring Navionics data will be available in Q1 2019.

Together, we can deliver the "best of both worlds" to our customers, with unmatched content, services and innovation.

You can count on us

Moving forward, Navionics and Garmin products will possess a wealth of data built by the world leaders in cartography. And together, we will work to make sure our future innovations provide our customers with the most highly detailed cartography available on the water.
