This state of mind is what the Company is founded on and our focus for future goals. Our cartography is available to boaters for use in GPS chartplotters, and within our app for Apple® and AndroidTM devices.Our head office is based in Viareggio, Tuscany, the perfect starting point for reaching nearby cities of art, beaches and mountains.
