SonarChart™ by Navionics wins the DAME Award 201213 November 2012
SonarChart™ is the winner of this 22nd annual Design Award at METS in the Marine Equipment & Related software category. This year, DAME attracted 115 products which were scrutinized from 25 countries by an independent, international jury.
The motivation of the jury for choosing SonarChart™ is:
“It is the first system to enable large-scale displays that incorporate automated and global daily updates of bathymetrical data. The Jury considered this to be a finely designed product that represents a tremendously exciting development in the area of marine navigation and believe that this product is a glimpse into the future of the chartware sector”.
Over the years, Navionics has figured very often amongst the winners of the DAME award, being recognized as a company that continuously brings innovative concepts and change the way people boat. SonarChart™ is a high definition bathymetry map layer offering fishermen and cruisers maximum detail to help locate fishing areas and verify seabed details of itineraries. The great innovation is that Navionics Community users can contribute their sonar logs and that updated charts can be downloaded within 24 hours through the Freshest Data, the Navionics exclusive chart online updating service. SonarChart™ is available on multiple platforms including Plotter GPS, iPad, iPhone and WebApp.
METS visitors may receive a live demo of this recently launched product on the Navionics stand 02.432 at METS until November 15th.
