Navionics is kicking off the 2014 open water fishing season with a special promotion, open exclusively to Canadian residents, for a chance to win a fishing trip for two with professional angler and Real Fishing Show host Bob Izumi. The winner will have the opportunity to fish with Canada’s most popular fishing personality at one of three exciting destinations: Bay of Quinte, Ontario; Stuart, Florida; or Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
The contest, by design, benefits all boaters. One means of entry includes providing proof of uploading sonar logs to navionics.com. Data uploaded with each sonar log is incorporated within one week to SonarCharts™, a high definition bathymetry map layer that shows incredible bottom contour detail. Since SonarCharts™ was released for Canada last year, all boaters can benefit from more detailed charts for their GPS chartplotter, on their iPhone, iPad or WebApp and soon on Android handset or tablet. The sheer volume of new sonar log uploads expected has the potential to greatly improve charts on many of the vast Canadian lakes, rivers, coastal waters, and even those areas that have never been charted.
Entry can also be accompanied with proof of a Freshest Data download, free for 12 months with new Navionics cards. Any boater with a compatible GPS chartplotter who downloads Freshest Data to their Navionics card will not only receive the 2,000 updates made per day to Navionics charts but also all the latest community-fueled updates to SonarCharts™. It’s a win-win scenario whether you’re an angler hoping for a chance to fish with legend Bob Izumi or someone that just wants to have the most detailed charts possible.
The contest runs from April 1st through June 30th, with the winner selection taking place on July 1st. Full contest details are available at navionics.com/izumitrip.
