Free Navionics for PC Offer

If you're a member of BoatUS, Navionics is offering a free PC version of their popular marine mapping software for planning purposes on your Mac or PC. I'm told it won't link to a GPS for a moving map display, but has most if not all other main features. It will sync with your android to share chart corrections and POI updates. No proof of membership is required.

Need some help. Went to the store, downloaded their app and agreed they could use all kinds of information from me, selected the map, used code but said voucher had already been redeemed. Double checked the numbers. OK. Actually the blank for the codel called it a "voucher". Maybe not in the right place. Also, following that they wanted my credit card information. Help.

My Admiral insists on using her I-Pad with Navionics side-by-side with the chartplotters. Works pretty good.

The Navionics PC App is typically used to view charts that have already been purchased on SD or CF cards. Maybe healhustler's version also includes Navionics silver or gold charts in a downloadable format?

Along these same general lines, if you use Garmin plotters, they offer "HomePort" software for under $30. You can copy the charts from your plotter to an SD card, then view them on a PC. You can also create or modify routes, tracks, and waypoints and load them to your plotter.

I use it and it's a big help.

PER....sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Can't really say much about the Navionics on the Admiral's I-pad now? She updated it for the first time on Friday over I-Tunes, and so far, she hasn't been able to get the map/chart or the GPS position cursor to appear. I've never been serious about it cuz she just pesters me with it. Still, I have to admit that it got us off a shallow in Biscayne Bay that wasn't indicated on either of our chartploters. It may have been loaded by her I-pad buddy who is also an avid boater. Our updates have often sabotaged software and aps on PC's, but not to my knowledge on Mac's or the I-pad. Other than depths and markers, I don't remember much of the detail.
