Update your Navionics Charts for 1/2 price

Got this on email today.

If you have Navionics charts, they are offering an update or new cards for 1/2 price, $49.99 until the end of February.

You can opt to "update" your current charts or get a new card.

I have three charts, so this was a significant savings for me.

Thanks for the info! I did the same thing. Big savings for sure especially if you have multiple charts you want to keep updated.

Navionics Boating HD Marine & Lakes, Google Play Store, $15/yr.
This has all charts for the lower 48; not sure about AK and HI.
Runs great on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet (9.7” display, 32GB, internal gps, no cellular data), $320, BestBuy. Ram mounts, $50.
The tablet’s internal GPS has been flawless and consistent with my 2012 Simrad chart plotter (which is no longer supported by Simrad).
It is the beginning of the end for $2000 chartplotters (with 5 year service/support lives).

I run 3 Raymarine MFDs and a laptop with CE. So this saved me some $$$

I think the items above may be the best combo I’ve seen yet for a backup or complementary system. Is the Galaxy Tab S2 sunlight viewable also?

Yes.

I have posted a pic of the S2 in sunlight.

If it did not display in this message, check out my TF photo album. I also posted a pic of the display and mounting there.

The sunlight pic was taken ~1hr prior to sunset with full sun shining on the display - kind of worst case. Note the shadow of the S2 in the background, and of my cell taking the photo. All of the display is in full sun. The bottom portion is reflecting the sun at the camera, which is easily avoided by changing the view angle slightly. I was hunting for worst case. The upper 2/3rds gives the full sun experience at any angle other than perfect reflection.

We have a very similar setup for Bahamas and Caribbean cruising. It's indispensable.... saved us many times for one reason or another.
