Community Edits do not show the user nickname

Navionics is updating its privacy and data protection policy to assure they are compliant with the requirements defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR carries provisions that require businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of citizens.

Because of personal data protection constraints, all Community Edits have been anonymized and no longer show the Nickname of the user that created or edited an object. As a result, a generic “Navionics user” is shown instead.
Nicknames will again be visible to the Navionics community once the user has opted in for rendering visible its future contributions. Any contributions made before the opt in will continue to be shown as anonymous. This cannot be changed.
The new Privacy Settings that allow for the Community Edits Nickname opt in are available by accessing the account settings in
