Navionics Launches Mobile 2.2 for iPhone

Navionics Mobile, recent recipient of the 2009 NMMA Innovation Award at MAATS, now has even more of the features that you’ve been asking for. While the charts reside permanently on your iPhone, your adventures don’t have to… with version 2.2, you can create a virtual travelogue of your journey including geo referenced photos, tracks, routes and markers and post them directly to your Facebook page. For those friends not yet on Facebook, simply email them your adventure log and let them view it overlaid on Google Earth.

What’s new in 2.2?
•Share your geotagged Pictures, Markers, Routes, and Tracks on Facebook!
•Save up to 100 Tracks from your recent trips.
•Create and save up to 100 Routes.
•Store up to 200 Favorites (Photos, Objects, Tides, Currents, Lakes, POI) and share them on Facebook.
•Search POI (Marinas, Marine Supply Stores, Marine Repair, Waterfront Restaurants, Bait, Tackle etc.).
•Tides and Currents now include Moon phase.

There are currently 30 cartographic Apps to choose from on the App Store that cover the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania. With Navionics Mobile, it doesn’t matter whether you’re an expert boater, sailor, or angler already familiar with Navionics charts, or a novice navigator, you can unleash the fun of navigation with Navionics Mobile for a very low price starting at $4.99 / 9.99€.

These great features are not just available for Marine charts; Navionics also produces the leading App for Lakes throughout the US and Canada! The same high-resolution 1-foot contouring available in Navionics HotMaps for specific lakes is now available for your iPhone, designed for a variety of activities related to boating, kayaking, and fishing either on water or on shore, the ultimate compliment to your GPS chartplotter.
