Navionics Boating – get hooked on Community Edits!

 

The Community Edits feature in the Navionics Boating app allows boaters like you to modify Navionics charts. Separate from official data, the whole Navionics Community can see the inputs on their phones and tablets, helping everyone to boat safer!  

Anyone can easily contribute. And thanks to millions of Boating app users who are continuously on the water, all kinds of valuable local knowledge is constantly enhanced in the Community Edits layer, such as seasonal buoys, lights, rocks, hazards, marinas, moorings, boat ramps and points of interest like restaurants, and provisioning shops.

Start accessing this incredibly useful feature and benefit from hundreds of thousands of edits today! All you need to do is download the free version of the Navionics Boating app, switch on the Community Edits layer in Menu>Settings, then zoom in on the map to see all the contributions. After discovering its value, you will want to join the community and contribute your own content. Become an author by registering within the app, which helps to prevent misuse, then select the icon that represents the item you want to insert and add any information you believe will be of interest to you and other boaters! You can even modify an object as well as rate and comment!   

Community Edits are entered from our Boating apps only, but can be downloaded to a Navionics chart card and seen on compatible plotters!

Boat safer and download the free app for iPhone, iPad or Android phone and tablet to get a two-week trial and experience Community Edits!
