Navionics announce sponsorship agreement with the Australian Sailing Team

Navionics is sponsoring the Australian Sailing Team as the official supplier of electronic nautical charts. Australian Sailing is the performance arm of Yachting Australia, the national sporting organization for sailing, in partnership with the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and with support from the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) and the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC). The Australian Sailing Team is also the national representative team for Olympic and Paralympic class sailing.

After successful trials of the maps during the 2014 ISAF World Championships, and the Rio Olympic Test event, Navionics charts were deemed the preferred solution by the Team’s technical advisors who will include them in the onboard inventory at various Australian and International events in the lead up to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Alongside the chart plotter products, the highly successful team will have the chance to use the app Navionics Boating and enjoy the same detailed charts on their mobile devices. 

Considered an original pioneer of the industry, Navionics have introduced many innovations to the marine navigation industry like SonarChart™, the HD bathymetry map featuring extraordinary bottom contour detail, and SonarChart™ Live, which allows you to create personal HD maps in real time on the Navionics Boating app as well as enhance the SonarChart™!

SonarChart™ is available on compatible plotters, it's included with Navionics+, Navionics Updates (for Gold and HotMaps Premium) and Platinum+. Learn how to view SonarChart™ on your plotter (video example). On mobile, find it in any Boating app for iPhone and iPad and Android smartphone and tablets. View SonarCharton our WebApp!
