B efore we discuss the recent update; let us first give you a brief overview on Navionics charts… Navionics is one of the most popular offshore mapping companies- providing highly detailed offshore charts for our South African waters. Navionics is definitely a top mapping choice amongst local deep sea anglers. There are different charts available - covering different areas and offering varying contour detail. All Navionics chart options include the SonarChart LIVE mapping feature- allowing you to create your own instant maps. Watch new 1 ft/0.5 m personal HD bathymetry maps develop in real time as your boat moves along the water. It appears as an additional layer over your map, while it also gets stored on your device for future use. The two smaller Navionics chart options each cover the East Coast and the West Coast respectively. We say “smaller,” but this is not to suggest that they cover small areas- each chart still covers a large coastal area. They are considered the “smaller charts” because they offer basic contour detail, and therefore contain less data. Both the East Coast and the West Coast chart each have a recommended retail price of R2410 incl. VAT. Gold RSA East Coast Chart Gold RSA West Coast Chart
