“Prior to Navionics Bahamas Special Edition, boaters had to rely on electronic and paper charts that were outdated and provided spotty, incomplete bottom contour detail,” said Bob Moshiri, vice president of sales and marketing, Navionics. “Now, with the introduction of our new charts, any boater can be assured that they have the most detailed and accurate cartography available when traveling to the Bahamas.”

The new Bahamas Special Edition charts can be used with compatible chartplotters and software solutions that are available from Navionics partners.
