The Community Edits layer in our Boating App allows you and millions of other app users to share local information. View nautical data and points of interests in your location, such as seasonal buoys, lights, rocks, moorings, and boat ramps, directly on your Boating app and contribute your own!
How to see Community Edits on your device
Open the Boating app and go to Menu > Settings, then turn Community Edits "ON". You will see all the contributions when you zoom in and download detailed maps. Objects added by boaters are marked with a “+”, while Navionics cartographic objects modified or deleted by users are labeled with "…" and "x" symbols, respectively.
How to contribute nautical data and points of interests
