Navionics wins Innovation Award at Miami International Boat Show with SonarChart™ Live!12 February 2015
Navionics SonarChart™ Live has won the 2015 Miami International Boat Show Innovation Award. This prestigious award is presented annually at the start of the show to recognize innovative distinction in a number of product categories. SonarChart™ Live was selected by a panel of judges from Boating Writers International as the best new product in the Consumer Electronics, Mobile Applications and Software category. Giuseppe Carnevali, president of Navionics, accepted the award.
SonarChart™ Live is the latest advancement in SonarChart™ allowing users to view sonar recordings in an exciting real-time display on the Navionics Boating app. The newly generated personal HD chart is then saved for private use on the device, while recorded depth data is anonymously shared with Navionics to improve SonarChart™ for all boaters. All data is cross-checked with other community contributions to ensure accurate daily enhancements.
SonarChart™ Live runs on any Navionics Apple app connected with the Vexilar SonarPhone T-BOX transducer, which allows mobile users to view split-screen charts and sonar. Android compatibility, as well as the ability to view SonarChart™ Live using sonar data from popular chartplotters, broadcast via NMEA183 compatible wireless routers from Navico, Digital Yacht and more, will follow.
