Providers of content and location-based services for the recreational boating and outdoor markets, Navionics, announces the latest version of its award-winning free app, Navionics Boating. The app offers free charts of the US and an expanded feature set that greatly enhances the boating experience.

Navionics Boating allows users to record their tracks, create routes, mark waypoints, check weather forecasts, sync their chart and sonar data with Navionics servers on the internet, share details of their time on the water and more—all at no additional cost.

Available today as a free download from the iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPad running iOS version 7.0, and coming soon to Google Play for Android, the new Navionics Boating allows boaters to enjoy the app right from the start, as well as find, select and purchase award winning Navionics charts and other advanced content. The best new app to kick off the summer season, Navionics Boating is currently a top download on the Apple iTunes Store.

For the first time ever, the free app is preloaded with unaltered nautical charts published by official government sources that include NOAA Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) for US coastal and navigable waterways, plus additional shorelines of major lakes and rivers from other public sources.

An incredible value, say Navionics, the new preloaded charts include primary navigational data such as depths, buoys, beacons, hazards, channel markers and more and ensure boaters have a ready-to-use tool as soon as they download the free app.

In addition, Navionics Boating users can purchase detailed Navionics charts found on plotters in worldwide regions from within the app. Other features include powerful tracking, enhanced routing and sharing, and the ability to sync sonar and charting data with a Raymarine plotter.
