    Update navigation apps AND charts

    A friend of mine recently ran aground and did some serious damage to his boat (thankfully nobody was injured) due to allegedly inaccurate charts.

    AIS on Navionics app?!

    Did ya'll see the AIS is available through the Navionics app now?! AIS in the Navionics Boating App This is a feature that was historically only available to pretty high end equipment. I could definitely see this being a huge help in low vis areas. Has anyone tried this yet?

    Re-charting after hurricanes

    Has anyone heard if Navionics plans to facilitate re-charting of the areas impacted by the hurricanes this year like they did after Hurricane Michael? (for reference: Important Coastline Updates to Areas in the Florida Panhandle Post-Hurricane Michael )

    Lake Texoma sailing

    Has anyone sailed on Lake Texoma. I was prepping to go out, updated my charts and found that they looked really different. Seems Navionics added SonarChart Shading. What's your sailing experience been like on Texoma? And what about these updated charts?

    Where to sail in summer?

    Where is the best place to sail in the summer? In S. Florida it's hot, muggy and not much wind (except during a storm). I see some beautiful spots on the Navionics charts in the Carolinas, Maine, and other northern locations. What's your favorite summertime sailing spot?

    FYI, if you find a place on the Navionics chart that is not right you can always use community edits to update the chart: Community Edits
