Today, marine navigation is largely done on electronic charts. It was Navionics that brought this concept to the world in 1984, opening up a new era for navigation.
The benefits of electronic charting to the safety of navigation have created a large and enthusiastic market, continuing to grow each year.
These advantages were certainly not lost on us when planing for our 2005 Arctic Expedition. When you're covering large distances, the sheer bulk and even weight of paper charts start to add up. Frequent use and the odd splash of water leave them torn and tattered - but plugged into our Raymarine handheld chartplotter GPS was an amazing experience.
