Includes Fully-functional Marine Navigation Charts for Southeastern Florida and Marine and Outdoor Cartography for Genoa Italy.
Navionics, the leader in electronic cartography and navigation data supply, announces the availability of its free application for iPhone users, Navionics Viewer, which includes fully-functional marine navigation charts for Southeastern Florida, as well as marine and outdoor cartography for Genoa, Italy as small samples of what’s to come from Navionics before year-end.
Navionics Viewer, with the free cartography samples, allow you to see your GPS position, tap and pinch the screen to zoom in and out, scroll the chart seamlessly, query chart objects, find your favorite marina, adjust depth units, view in day or night mode, and much more. Moreover, the maps are stored “on board” the iPhone memory, giving you very fast performance and zero data transmission fees, as well as continued service even when you are out at sea or in the wilderness with no cell coverage.
The Navionics Viewer will allow you access to the popular and award-winning Navionics Gold XL9 Charts, HotMaps Premium Lake Maps, and Discovery Charts for all your outdoor activities. Navigate the seas and oceans of the world, as well as many thousands of lakes, rivers, trails of all kinds, ski resorts, and much more. Navionics full portfolio of Mobile Charts is expected to be available before year-end. Navionics Mobile can help to improve your navigation safety; in case of an electrical blackout, the iPhone acts as a supplementary navigator. It can also be used for the tender, or simply to consult the charts while at home or on land without the need to be in front of your plotter onboard.
Navionics Viewer will soon be available for additional smartphone models beyond the iPhone. For those boaters who already have an iPhone, download your free Navionics Viewer from the App Store today.
