Founded in 1984, in Viareggio (Italy), the company Navionics® produces electronic charts for the pleasure boating market.

A mission

Satisfy customers by providing intuitive and innovative marine cartography content and functions. To achieve this, they draw on all their creativity, technical expertise, in-depth market knowledge and efficient production procedures.

A company focused on innovation

Navionics was born of a revolutionary idea: the very first electronic chart display, or plotter.

Today, we all use location-based services on our mobile devices on a daily basis, and we take this for granted. But imagine back then: wasn't that incredibly visionary!

Navionics was born with this forward-thinking mindset, and it continues to underpin its strategy for the future.

A Leader in the Making

The aim is to expand as a world leader in the marine content and location-based services market. Innovations are inspired by a passion for navigation, experience of digital technologies and content shared by users.

The cartographic database is the largest in the world. It includes oceans, seas, rivers and over 40,000 lakes. Navionics makes this valuable, unique content available for boaters to enjoy on their chartplotter, as well as in the app designed for Apple® and Android™ devices.

An International Presence

The company's headquarters are in Viareggio, Tuscany, an attractive location close to a number of art cities, the beach and the mountains.

Other Garmin brand offices involved in the development and distribution of Navionics products are located in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, USA and Hyderabad, India.
