Navionics HotMaps Premium Lake Maps and GOLD+ Marine Charts add a completely new dimension to DeLorme Handhelds!

Wareham, Mass. – Navionics, the leader in electronic charting and digital navigation data, is pleased to announce that DeLorme Earthmate PN-30 and PN-40 Handheld GPS Receivers now fully support Navionics HotMaps Premium Lake Maps and GOLD+ Marine Charts.

Navionics’ 25+ years of marine and lake cartography proves the perfect complement to DeLorme’s land-centric map library. The result of a working partnership between Navionics and DeLorme to develop an Earthmate solution, PN-30 and PN-40 GPS handhelds can now leverage Navionics marine charts and lake maps to provide paddlers, boaters and fishermen with the ultimate charting experience.

HotMaps Premium lake maps offer PN users detailed charts of over 14,000 North American lakes plus exclusive surveys and high-resolution maps of over 700 top U.S. tournament lakes and waters. Gold+ marine charts encompass the coastal waters, rivers and bays of the Americas, Europe, Greenland, Africa, Asia and Oceania.

With Navionics charts added to the mix, the DeLorme PN-Series offers its users by far the most varied and detailed handheld GPS map and chart options.

“Navionics is without question the pre-eminent name in lake maps and marine charts,” said Caleb Mason, DeLorme Vice President. “The bathymetric and navigation detail are beyond comparison given the superior surveying process employed by Navionics when gathering their data.”

“Navionics is thrilled to partner with renowned GPS outdoor cartographer DeLorme,” said Bill Eastwood, Navionics Global Product Manager. “Genuine Navionics cartography adds a completely new dimension to the mapping experience of DeLorme’s loyal fishing, paddle-sport and outdoor enthusiasts.”

DeLorme Earthmate PN-Series receivers, like Navionics charts and lake maps, are available at most major retailers.
