Navionics Info & How-To / Navionics updates explained

What is Navionics Updates?

I often get this question and I am going to do my best to explain. The Navionics Updates card can be purchased through a Navionics registered dealer or online. the package looks like this

The reason why a Navionics Updates card would be used is primarily if you have an existing Navionics card that is too old to update online through Navionics Chart Installer program, or if you have changed/upgraded GPS plotters that take a different format card (example: going from a GPS plotter that takes CF [Compact Flash] to a new unit that only takes MSD [Micro Secure Digital]).

The Navionics Updates card does not update the card you already have - instead, it uses your existing card to activate it. Once activated, the Navionics Updates is the new card you will use with access to larger regions and additional data you may not have had previously on your existing card (turns into Navionics+). follow this next link For more information on activating your Navionics Updates card,

Navionics Updates can be activated ONLY by an older/existing Navionics Silver, Gold, HotMaps Premium, or Marine & Lakes USA level card OR an eligible competitor cards such as

Cards from other manufacturers:
C-MAP: BDS, Essential, 4D, 4D Local, 4D Wide, 4D MAX, 4D MAX+, MAX N, MAX N+, MAX-N Bathy, MAX NT and MAX NT+ on SD/MSD
Fishing Hot Spots on SD, MSD, and MMC
Garmin: BlueChart, BlueChart G2, Vision, LakeVu, LakeVu Ultra on SD/MSD

Navionics Info & How-To / any interest in sonar logging your favorite lake?
« on: September 18, 2018, 09:25:10 PM »
I have some sonar logging kits that I will send to a few anglers on here as long as they commit to doing some sonar logging on a lake of there choice.
what you need
  • a chart plotter capable of doing Sonar chart live
  • take a screen shot of what the map looks like prior to doing sonar chart live
  • a screen shot of the new contours after logging

please post on here if you are interested and or have any questions and we will go from there
