We have grown from a two-man show started in 1984 to a diverse team operating in all continents and countless countries, that puts real pride and passion in developing products for safer and easier navigation.
Today Navionics employs over 350 enthusiastic persons, mainly located in USA, Italy and India, but with sales and service all over the world. The engineering team, a unique mix of long experienced people as well young brains still in school, is responsible for developing technologies that are constantly a few years ahead of the competition, but at the same time are easy and enjoyable to use by any outdoors person.
The production team is a highly skilled group of people who know the importance of using technology wherever possible to increase quality and productivity, but also recognizing the superiority of the human factor and the passion that makes the difference between a product and a good product.
But above all what makes the difference is the fact that we all are avid boaters, skiers and outdoors people, we all are our own customers, we all use and test our products for our own hobbies, which means the difference between products designed by engineers for the use by engineers, and products made by users for the benefit of everyday people.
Navionics has the world’s largest database of marine and lake charts, covering the salt waters of the entire planet as well as tens of thousands of lakes and rivers. Many of these charts have been developed by way of Navionics’ proprietary surveys done both in the field and with remote sensing such as satellite imagery and airborne laser scanners.
In October, 2017, Navionics was acquired by Garmin Ltd.
