10% Off All Navionics Charts Until Aug 26th 2012

Starting on August 10th and running through August 26th we will be having a huge sale on all in stock Navionics charts.  We will be offering 10% off our already low prices on each chart purchase during this sale.

If you have a chart that is not updateable (Prior to Spring 2010) this is a great chance to purchase one at a reduced cost so you can take advantage of Navionics Freshest Data Program.  When you purchase your new chart it will be included with a USB card reader so you can download the latest updates from the web.  All you need to do is insert the card into the reader within 60 days of purchase and then plug the USB reader into a computer with internet connection and that’s it!  It’s literally that easy.  It will automatically begin a wizard for you to update your charts.  This is one of the easiest parts of your chartplotter system to update.  You are then entitled to 1 year of free updates for your chart.  With over 1000 updates per day you know you’ll have the most up to date information for all your boating or fishing trips.

Navionics manufactures many different charts for various application so determining which one you require is first step.   Platinum+ and Gold charts are better suited for pleasure boaters, sailors, and Great Lakes fishermen, while Hotmaps are geared towards inland lakes fishermen and cottagers.  Let’s take a look at what each chart option offers.

The Platinum+ charts are Navionics top of the line charts with just about every option imaginable.  They have full 2D charting data with NavAids, Marker Buoys, Contour Lines, Spot Soundings and Marina information.  They also include 3D charting, aerial photos of marina’s and port entrances, satellite photo overlays for land and water, and they also include the popular Fish’N’chip data which is high resolution bathymetric data which serious fishermen love.

Gold is the next charting in Navionics extensive product line and they have full 2D charting data with NavAids, Marker Buoys, Contour Line, Spot Soundings and Marina information.  These are one of our most popular charts and they cover an extensive charting region.  With just 2 charts you are able to cover all the coastal and Great Lakes waters of Canada and the USA.

For pleasure boaters and sailors the Platinum+ or Gold are the best choices as they have full navigational charting.  For fishermen on inland lakes in Canada there are two great choices.

Hotmaps Premium offers many lakes in HD format which include 1 foot contour lines for the serious fishermen.  This level of detail is what makes finding productive fishing spots a very quick process as the “spot on the spot” jumps right out at you.

Hotmaps Platinum has the same coverage area as the Premium and same detail level for the charting, plus it also offers 3D mapping for many lakes.  Also, included on the Hotmaps Platinum chart is satellite photo overlay and aerial photos for many marinas.

Whether you boat, sail, or fish Navionics is sure to have the right chart for you and at these sale prices there’s no better time to purchase one.
