About the Course
Navionics (Boating HD) is a program designed by Garmin that turns any GPS enabled mobile device into a chart plotter and so much more. Many sailors and captains now opt to use an Ipad or tablet as their primary navigation tool over an inbuilt chart plotter because of the advantages in speed, processing power and portability. This course is designed to introduce students to all of the amazing uses of the Navionics program and enable them to become a Navionics power user!
