How to Activate a New Navionics+ Updates Card
Navionics+ Updates is a new card that can be activated with an older card through our Chart Installer Program.
Platinum+ and HotMaps Platinum products cannot be used to activate a Navionics+ Updates card. For a complete list of eligible activation cards, click here.
Once you have successfully installed the Chart Installer, plug your new Navionics+ Updates card into your computer and follow the prompts on the screen (fig 1).
You will receive a message that your Navionics+ Updates card is now active and ready to use in your chart plotter. (fig. 2)
You can also proceed to update SonarChart™ and/or Community Edits to your card. See Updating charts on your Navionics+ or Navionics+ Updates card.
Your original Navionics chip will be "blacklisted" after the activation process. It can no longer be updated or activate another Navionics+ Updates card.
DO NOT DISCARD YOUR ORIGINAL PLOTTER CARD!
- Any saved SonarChart Live files on your card can be moved to your new card when you receive it. Here's how.
- Your card is still functional in your plotter - just without the benefit of chart updates or advanced features.
