A one-year subscription is included when you purchase a new Navionics® card. It offers daily chart updates and advanced features. All you have to do is activate your subscription through the Chart Installer. Older cards can be activated too, and this will allow you to access discounted subscription renewals.



Navionics products provide chart layers and overlays to serve the various needs of boaters and anglers.

Currently, you can download only one overlay at a time on Platinum cards, but you can substitute it any time you want within your subscription period.


Only Navionics customers can enjoy this unique benefit - the most current charts every time they go boating.
For the best experience with advanced features such as Dock-to-dock Route Guidance¹, it is required to have updated data on your card.

With an active subscription, you can bring your charts up to date any time you want.


Don't miss out on updates.
After a year, you can renew with up to 50% off to continue accessing the very latest content and advanced features.
