Published By: Jonathan Lee

The makers of iNavX, a marine navigation mobile application, have announced that Navionics+ charts are available in the iNavX In-App Chart Store. Navionics+ allows users to select the accurate navigational data as well as exclusive one-foot HD bathymetry map – from one of seven extensive global regions.

For Canada and the US, boaters can choose both freshwater and saltwater charts. Navionics+ chart features include both Nautical Chart and SonarChart.

“We are constantly pushing the envelope to offer our users an unparalleled level of capabilities and options when it comes to the charts that they can use,” says said Shaun Steingold, CEO, NavX Studios. “With their Navionics+ charts, Navionics has proven again why they are the most popular chart provider. We are honoured to partner with them and bring their award-winning charts to our iNavX users.”

“iNavX is an ideal pairing with our award-winning Navionics+ charts,” says Don Black, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Navionics. “The extensive iNavX user base will reap the ample rewards of safer boating and more successful fishing thanks to the combination of intuitive navigation and incredible accuracy.”

iNavX supports hundreds of worldwide charts from the top chart providers. iNavX can be used as a full-colour chartplotter, a toolkit or as a redundancy system.

The app is capable of displaying current position in real-time using a mobile device's built-in GPS, in addition to plotting course, bearing or waypoints.

Supporting NMEA data over TCP/IP, iNavX also integrates with external GPS, AIS receivers and transponders, and networked instruments such as depth, speed, wind, engine data and battery voltage meters. Users can examine data by panning, zooming and rotating charts, as well as downloading GRIB weather forecasts.

iNavX is available for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPads from the App Store, and is priced at US $24.99.
