MARINE CARTOGRAPHY COMPATIBILITY
Featuring integrated coastal and inland content, the newest generation of Garmin Navionics+™ and premium Navionics Vision+™ cartography offers superior coverage, clarity and detail on your compatible Garmin chartplotter. If your current chartplotter or marine handheld is not compatible with the Garmin Navionics+ format, you can still enjoy our previous generation of BlueChart® g3 coastal charts and LakeVü g3 inland maps — until you’re ready for a chartplotter upgrade.

NOTE: When you purchase a new Garmin Navionics+ or Garmin Navionics Vision+ cartography product, a one-year subscription is included. The subscription includes access to daily chart updates and download of additional content such as raster cartography and premium features (high-resolution relief shading, high-resolution satellite imagery and sonar imagery) where available. Charts and features that are downloaded during the subscription period remain on the card, but no additional content can be downloaded after the subscription expires.
For preprogrammed charts bought in-store or online, the subscription needs to be activated.
Garmin Navionics+ or Garmin Navionics Vision+ cartography requires that your compatible chartplotter software is updated to the January 2022 SW release, which is conveniently preprogrammed on the cartography cards. The software is also available for download from the ActiveCaptain® app or via Garmin Express™ software. Learn more.
1When a Garmin Navionics+ card is inserted in these devices, it may only be used on networks containing no more than 4 compatible chartplotters.
