Updating navionics charts
The ability for me to have a chip that covers the entire nation is huge because I don't have to buy one for every state I go to.Also, I love the updating feature, which lets me know my charts are as up to date as they can be and I feel safer going out on new, unfamiliar rivers.Please note that to use this service, your existing card number needs to end with "XG", for example 28XG.Note:- the following Codes are a different Price, Please select these charts Individually by clicking on the link to CANADIAN ana RUSSIAN In Land Charts below.
However, many Navionics Boating users may find that their particular app does not update to version 13.
I'm very happy with the Navionics chart data on my older C80 Classic MFD. Background info: I had to send my card to them so they could see what was causing the issues. Because it is nearby, I took it to the Raymarine facility in Nashua. Dropped it off with a note and a few days later they called and I picked it up, everything updated.
I Hope this helps someone and saves you some time and a headache. No reluctance on their part, but there was a small fee. Completed the firmware update (v5.16) on the C70 classic per Raymarine instructions.
I contacted Navionics to see if they would be willing to extend my subscription since I would be mapping my home lake (Claytor Lake, Dublin VA) for them at my cost (boat hours, fuel, and subscription price to use Navionics! They claim to already have some community edits but it's almost laughable how off they are...
if you were to navigate by the community edits here you wouldn't make it out of the first turn without grounding your boat! if you do not continue to pay every year for your subscription you CANNOT continue to use the sonar chart logging feature and are essentially left with nothing.
