NAVIONICS FUNCTIONALITY AVAILABLE SOON ON LOWRANCE, SIMRAD AND B&G CHARTPLOTTERS AND MULTIFUNCTION DISPLAYS

Operating System Updates to Enable Dock-to-dock Autorouting, SonarChart Live, Plotter Sync and Advanced Map Options

Egersund, Norway and Wareham, Mass. – November 15, 2016 – Navico, a leading provider of marine electronics under the Lowrance, Simrad and B&G brands, and Navionics, the leader in content and location-based services for the recreational boating and outdoor markets, have collaborated to make several new features available to customers using Navionics charts. The upcoming software update for a wide range of new and existing models will add compatibility with Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting, SonarChart™ Live and Plotter Sync. Advanced Map Options will also be an integral part of the new set of functionality for fishing, cruising and sailing.

“We are pleased to offer the very latest charting functionality from Navionics to our Lowrance, Simrad and B&G customers,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO, Navico. “These powerful new features are a wonderful complement to our leading chartplotters and multifunction displays and will enhance both of ease of use, enjoyment and productivity on the water.”

“Boaters will have even better control during every voyage with tools that can help them to take advantage of the best suggested route to their destination, to improve chart detail wherever they go, to update charts and transfer routes and markers right from the boat, and to customize the display based on their specific activity,” said Don Black, senior vice president of global sales and marketing at Navionics. “We’re excited that this technology will be more widely accessible through our longstanding partnership with Navico.”

A breakthrough in boating navigation, Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting creates intelligent, detailed routes, even through narrow passages and channels where they’re needed most. Navionics’ sophisticated algorithms take into consideration chart data, navigation aids, and water depths from both Nautical Chart and the most recent SonarChart™ to display the suggested route.

SonarChart™ Live allows boaters to create personal 1 ft/0.5 m HD bathymetry maps in real time on the display of their Lowrance, Simrad and B&G chartplotter models. With SonarChart Live, boaters can engage their sonar to create new and increasingly detailed charts everywhere they go, raising awareness of shallow waters and frequently revealing previously uncharted bottom features, such as holes and drop-offs, that anglers seek out when targeting fish.  

Users can easily download updated charts and transfer routes and markers via the innovative Plotter Sync capability of Navionics Boating apps without having to remove their Navionics card.

Engineered with anglers in mind, Advanced Map Options gives plotter users more ways to customize their view of Navionics charts. Presentation can be modified to select a fishing range, highlight shallow areas, and now SonarChart™ contour density can also be adjusted, thereby making it quicker and easier to identify ideal fishing spots and repeat patterns. 

All new Navionics functionality will be available using a Navionics card that has an active chart updates subscription with the following models, provided they have updated software installed: Lowrance HDS Gen3, Simrad GO, GO xse, and NSS evo2, and B&G Zeus2 and Vulcan. Lowrance Elite Ti will be compatible with all but Dock-to-dock Autorouting. Dock-to-dock Autorouting is supported throughout Navionics global catalog, except USA. Additional compatibility requirements will be available at www.navico.com and www.navionics.com.

NAVIONICS BOATING APP NOW OFFERS DOCK-TO-DOCK AUTOROUTING ON ANDROID DEVICES

The most advanced functionality for boating that quickly creates detailed routes

Navionics, the leader in content and location-based services for the recreational boating and outdoor markets, announced today that the Navionics Boating App’s Dock-to-dock Autorouting functionality is now available on Android, in addition to iPhone, iPad and select chartplotters. The feature makes it even easier for boaters to plan their outings on a mobile device.  

The most advanced functionality for boating, Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting provides a range of capabilities and quickly creates detailed routes from a real start point to a real end point, even through narrow passages and channels, where they are needed most, thanks to sophisticated algorithms and massive amounts of data.

With simple user input, boaters can choose a starting location and destination by tapping on the map, entering latitude/longitude or selecting a point of interest (POI) like the harbor master, marinas and moorings, fuel stations, restaurants and bars, shops, taxis and launch services, repairs and dealers. A detailed route is calculated taking into consideration chart data, navigation aids, water depth and more. The route even highlights precautions along the way such as shallow water, bridges and other hazards. Estimated fuel consumption, distance and ETA are also shown. POIs nearby the destination appear automatically within the Autorouting menu, complete with phone numbers.

“Creating complex routes can be done in seconds. The response to Dock-to-dock Autorouting has been overwhelming and we are very pleased to now offer it to Android users,” said Don Black, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Navionics.

Navionics charts are continuously enhanced with new and amended content from official sources, public and private surveys, and millions of sonar logs and Community Edits contributed by boaters, then processed and published daily, ensuring the charts are safer and more up-to-date than any other. However, Navionics emphasizes that a route automatically calculated by Autorouting does not replace safe navigation practices and should never be boaters only reference source.

Dock-to-dock Autorouting won the 2016 Sail Pittman Innovation Award, ADI-IBI Innovation Award at Genova Boat Show 2015 and received special mention for the DAME Design Award at METSTRADE 2015 in Amsterdam.

 On mobile devices, innovative Dock-to-dock Autorouting is a feature of the Navionics Boating app starting with version 8.0 for Android, and version 8.4 for iPhone and iPad, where it is part of the overwhelmingly valuable Navionics+ one-year subscription package included in any paid app. On chartplotters, Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting is currently available worldwide, except in USA, on Raymarine MFDs. Compatibility is planned soon for Lowrance, Simrad and B&G models.

Latest LightHouse OS Update brings Powerful Navigation Features and Personal Chart Creation to Raymarine Multifunction Displays 

Jacco Willemsen – Navionics +31642302023 | JWillemsen@navionics.com

WILSONVILLE, OR – May 19, 2016 – Raymarine®, a brand of FLIR Systems, and Navionics®, the leader in content and location-based services for the recreational boating and outdoor markets, have collaborated to make several new features available on Raymarine’s LightHouse II based multifunction displays, including Navionics’ award-winning Dock-to-dock Autorouting, SonarChart™ Live and Advanced Map Options.

A breakthrough in marine navigation, Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting creates intelligent, detailed routes through narrow passages and channels where they’re needed most. Raymarine users can choose their start and end points, then can take advantage of Navionics’ sophisticated algorithms which calculate a detailed route that takes into consideration chart data, navigation aids, and water depth.

 “Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting is truly ground-breaking in its ability to plot a course through the maze of variables that one considers when route planning,” said Don Black, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Navionics. “We’re excited to bring this incredible feature to even more boaters through our longstanding partnership with Raymarine.”

 “Once again we are excited to deliver new technology and features to our multifunction display customers with our LightHouse operating system,” said Grégoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime. “By adding support for Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting and SonarChart™ Live, we are delivering a simplified and information-rich navigation experience.”

 SonarChart™ Live works with Raymarine multifunction displays, allowing boaters to create personal 0.5 m HD bathymetry maps in real time. With SonarChart Live, Raymarine users can engage their sonar to survey new areas or places where bottom conditions may have changed, and then create new bathymetric charts that appear on their device instantly. In addition, Raymarine users can upload their sonar data automatically and download updated charts easily via the innovative Plotter Sync capability of Navionics Boating apps. Other Navionics users can also benefit from the newly surveyed areas as the data is integrated within Navionics’ SonarChart™ library and made available through Navionics’ daily chart updates program.  

Engineered with anglers in mind, the new Advanced Map Options give Raymarine users the ability to customize their view of Navionics chart presentation by highlighting shallow areas, selecting a fishing range, and adjusting SonarChart™ contour density.
