Garmin Acquires Navionics


It was announced this week that Garmin has acquired Navionics, a privately-held worldwide provider of electronic navigational charts and mobile applications for the marine industry. Many of our clients are using Navionics on their iProducts.  “Navionics has long been known as a leading supplier of highly accurate navigational charts and mobile applications for boaters.  By combining Navionics’ content with Garmin’s BlueChart and LakeVü content, Garmin hopes to offer the best available breadth and depth of coverage to marine customers. They plan to retain the Navionics brand and will continue to support Navionics’ existing customers.  “Since our founding, Navionics has been passionate about creating products that enhance the boating experience,” said Giuseppe Carnevali, Navionics founder and president. “Garmin shares our passion for serving the marine industry, and is an ideal company to carry the strong brand and reputation of Navionics into the future.”

In addition to a popular boating app, Navionics has developed an extensive repository of nautical charts for oceans, rivers, and lakes. Many of these charts have been developed with Navionics’ proprietary surveys, done both in the field and with remote sensing such as satellite imagery and airborne laser scanners.
