Garmin® International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NYSE: GRMN), the world’s largest1 and most innovative marine electronics manufacturer, has announced that Navionics®, a Garmin brand, is releasing a new, streamlined catalog of Navionics®+ and premium Platinum+™ charts to refresh its lineup of marine cartography products.

For easy transition between navigating inland and coastal waters, Navionics+ and Platinum+ charts now feature all-new aligned coverage regions as an all-in-one mapping solution that combines detail-rich inland and offshore content, as well as a full suite of advanced features for a wide range of compatible chartplotters2 to help mariners plot their paradise.

“For years, Navionics has delivered a complete range of valuable navigation tools and features for boaters, anglers and sailors across the globe. Our simplified catalog includes newly combined inland and coastal content for all Platinum+ charts, making it easier than ever for mariners to explore the waters they enjoy most,” said Marcello Albanese, Navionics director of sales and business development. “Plus, mariners can continue to utilize the same quality content and premium features, such as high-resolution relief shading chart overlays, to support a safer and more enjoyable navigation experience – whether on the lake or off the coast.”

With unparalleled worldwide coverage and No.1 marine mapping1, Navionics+ and Platinum+ offer a variety of features – like daily chart updates, chart overlays and advanced routing technology – that are designed to smoothly guide boaters on the water, or quickly lead anglers to where the fish may be hiding.
