Default Navionics has me stumped...

This summer I plan on traveling around the chesapeake bay and doing some over night trips. I would like to know what Navionics software I should have to help find restaurants and gas stations. The Navionics software I have seen only appears to have better graphics and depth maps and lack the info I'm looking for. So is there a Navionics software that will display cloest fueling stations and so on?

If you have maps with the "Freshest Data" and "Community Data" - you will get a LOT of POI's you can search for. But different MFD's have different ways of searching (read - some are easy to use for search - others not so)

What Chart plotter do you have? Do you have a smart phone? If I can help I will. Navionicsdoes have an APP that does list fuel location, restaurants ect.

Have you downloaded the chart of your area so it's now on the iPhone? If so, then create an account and log into the community layer. Once the chart is native to your device all you have to have is GPS reception (cell not required).

It's not by Navionics; but it will do what you want:

Scope3334 since you have a iphone, for about $10.00 you can download the navionics app and have all of the Fuel, restraunts, marinas at your finger tips.
