Navionics Gold and HotMaps Premium charts, covering Canada and the US, will be available for the brands this summer as a download from the Navico Insight Store. The charts contain reference detail, including data from public and private sources as well as exclusive Navionics surveys.

"We are very excited to expand and enhance the flexibility of our Lowrance, Simrad and B&G compatible offerings,' said Giuseppe Carnevali, President, Navionics. "With 24/7 access to our industry-leading charts and seamless data sharing, boaters can get the most from their time on and off the water.'

Gold charts come with interactive display capabilities, port plans, safety depth contours and marine services.

HotMaps Premium lake maps provide detail on 18,000 lakes including over 2,500 high definition lakes with Navionics' one-foot contours, underwater structure including road beds, bridges, stumps, culverts and creek channels; and detailed shorelines including boat ramps and docks.

Lowrance, Simrad and B&G users also will soon have access to Navionics Plotter Sync capabilities, the latest enhancement to the ‘Navionics Boating and Marine and Lakes' apps for iPhone and iPad. Plotter Sync will allow boaters using Navico's GoFree Wireless to share routes, tracks, and waypoints from a mobile device to the chartplotter and vice versa, a tool designed that can be used for trip planning at home.
