“In our pursuit to provide the greatest global cartography solutions, we’re excited to offer the latest-and-greatest detail and coverage available from Garmin Navionics+ now preloaded into one of our most popular chartplotter series,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales.
Offering a myriad of features – including an all-new chart presentation, daily chart updates and advanced autorouting capabilities – Garmin Navionics+ cartography is designed to smoothly guide boaters on the water, or quickly lead anglers to where the fish may be hiding. It also features color-shaded target depth ranges, up to 1-foot depth contours, free downloadable NOAA raster images, shallow water shading and access to ActiveCaptain® community content for valuable insight on points of interest (POI), recommendations and advice from fellow boaters.
New, redesigned chart presentation
Garmin Navionics+ offers an improved look and feel – with a vibrant color palette and greater detail of coastal and inland features – to deliver a new, on-screen cartography presentation for more intuitive navigation on lake or sea. This new interface displays charts in striking detail with a crystal-clear look at the depths below the boat, as well as surrounding structure and navigational aids above the waterline.
Up to 5,000 daily updates
With up to 5,000 updates to chart content every day, Garmin Navionics+ offers the latest insights about any body of water for enhanced situational awareness and peace of mind while navigating. Daily chart updates combine millions of contributions from private and public surveyors, crowd-sourced data and more, delivering the freshest, most up-to-date content each time mariners leave shore. With coverage of more than 42,000 lakes worldwide, daily updates allow for immediate access to new chart data and lake content as it is released. A one-year subscription is included and once activated, customers can access unlimited daily chart updates using the ActiveCaptain app. For quick-and-easy access to ongoing up-to-date content after the first year, customers can opt-in for an auto-renewal subscription.
Advanced autorouting technology
Combining the best of Garmin and Navionics automatic routing features, Auto Guidance+ technology2 offers faster route calculations and improved routing detail. After selecting departure and arrival points, Auto Guidance+ considers a variety of factors – overhead clearance, chart data, popular routes and desired depth – then creates a suggested route for mariners to follow to their destination.
