SonarCharts Navionics http://www.navionics.com/
SonarCharts exposes incredible seabed detail not available on existing cartography. Using its proprietary process developed over many years, Navionics integrates hydrographic office data with its own survey data and sonar logs received from the Navionics Community to reveal maximum chart detail.

Online updates to the SonarCharts are available daily allowing for timely bathymetric charts that reflect ever-changing conditions. All Navionics users can become explorers! Virtually anyone with a sonar device can plumb the marine depths to discover any kind of relief, hidden gorges, detailed mountains, canyons, or submerged structures never before mapped! Sonar logs uploaded online through navionics.com are processed and new data is reflected in a revised SonarCharts™ layer.

All users benefit from the contributions of the rapidly growing Navionics Community comprised of tens of thousands of individuals that submit many hundreds of thousands of edits per year. SonarCharts™ empowers boaters and anglers with incredibly detailed charts they can continue to build and use to discover the ocean’s sea beds, venture into creeks and channels, target the most productive fishing areas, explore new diving areas, and study lake details. Continuously enriched content, a unique feature in charting, is updated daily.

SonarCharts™ is now available for GPS plotters on Platinum+, Navionics+ and with Navionics Updates, covering America, Europe, Africa and Australia. Sonar logs uploading feature is under progressive deployment.

Navionics WebApp
Everyone can view Navionics award-winning charts online with WebAPP interactive viewer and Web API customizable plug-in tool for businesses.



Navionics WebApp is a convenient reference tool for viewing charts, accessible directly from the navionics.com website homepage. WebApp features the same Navionics 2D nautical charts available for chartplotters, allowing anyone to explore the seas, lakes, and oceans covered by the famous Navionics cartography.

Navionics Web API allows companies to display Navionics charts on their websites. Ideal for promoting on-the-water activities or other relevant purpose, Web API enables embedding of Navionics cartography within a company’s website, incorporating their unique content with the same detailed chart data their customers enjoy on mobile devices and chartplotters. Web API instructions can be downloaded from navionics.com/en/web-api

Both WebApp and the Web API provide end users access to Navionics maps for GPS plotters and mobile devices for free before and after the cartography purchase. WebApp is available in Italian, French, German and Spanish. WebApp will be integrated with additional important features currently available on Navionics apps for tablets and smartphones.
