Marine Charts and US Lake Maps Can Now Be Downloaded on the App Store

Navionics, the leader in electronic cartography, announces the availability of its new Mobile Charts and Viewing App for your iPhone. Several of Navionics’ award-winning Gold XL9 marine charts for US and European waters, and HotMaps Premium lake maps for US and Canadian lakes, have been optimized specifically for iPhone and are now available on the App Store providing iPhone users with unparalleled clarity and detail not found in other navigation applications. Marine charts currently available include: Gold USA East, USA West, USA Central, USA Great Lakes, Caribbean & Central America, as well as Gold Mediterranean, and UK/Holland. Lake maps currently available include: HotMaps East, West, North and South.

If you prefer to try before you buy, Navionics Viewer is a FREE App that allows iPhone users to cruise a sample chart of Southeastern Florida and Northwest Italy and test the waters. Navionics Mobile Charts, as well as the FREE Navionics Viewer, allow you to locate your position on the map, seamlessly pan and zoom, query objects, search marinas, locate boat ramps, anchorages, wrecks, underwater structures, access tide & current data with graphic display, point-to-point distance measuring, and much more.

Navionics Mobile Charts are easily downloaded and then stored ‘onboard’ your iPhone providing fast performance, zero data transmission fees, and continued access even when you’re out of cell range. A useful tool to add to your boating safety in case your primary chart plotting device loses power, or simply to consult the maps for pre-planning your next fishing or cruising adventure while at home or on land.

Soon, Navionics’ full portfolio of marine charts, lake maps and outdoor trails will be available for download to a wide-variety of smartphones – check our website for the most recent updates: www.navionics.com.
