Default New Navionics SonarCharts for Garmin

If you are interested in being a Beta tester we have opened it up again. Read the Following-

The quality of Navionics’ charts is well known and acknowledged by millions of satisfied customers and countless awards.
We think that the customer’s interests for safe and reliable experience would be better served by Garmin helping Navionics to ensure full compatibility, rather than by jeopardizing it, as Garmin already do with land mappers.
Navionics would welcome a cooperation with Garmin, and believes that for Garmin customers to be allowed to compare multiple charts, as recommended by best practices in navigation, and done by all other manufacturers, would enhance their safety and enjoyment of the boating experience”

Navionics is launching their new “SonarCharts for Garmin” product at the start of 2015. SonarCharts for Garmin is one foot contours of all our 18,000 Navionics lakes and coastal areas out to 80 feet. Beyond 80 feet in saltwater is 3 foot contours to 250 and 6 foot beyond that. This is meant to give more fishing and sailing/cruising detail on your Garmin chart plotter. We will like to give out some beta testing charts for free to get your opinion before we launch. We are offering a free chart to the first 20 people that send me a personal message. PM me your name, address, phone, email, and plotter type. We will send these to you as the regions are prepared. We know this additional level of detail for Garmin users will be something you will love!
I will need the following-
Email
Full Name
Address
Phone Number
Garmin Model
Area Chart see below

Thanks everyone FYI Look for a full release in 2015

Hey thanks for all the info, those of you that sent me your info I need a couple more things. I will try and send you a direct pm but I dont want to miss any of you.

1. No PO Box #’s if you sent me a PO Box I will need an address
2. I will need a chart area follow this link and pick out the chart area that you want
http://www.navionics.com/en/marine-lakes-charts
a. Example if they are in Florida they would get a 906 chart cut
b. Example if they are in Tennessee they would get a HMPT-E Chart Cut.
The other chart cut areas will be coming so Lake customers have patience.]

No idea how many have Pm'd Kirt for a copy but these new charts are excellent and run well so best to get on board to get a copy and then provide some feedback to improve the finished product so it will be even better than it already is.

I have been testing them "Down Under" since August (Australia got them first for change somehow) in my 5000 series with no issues and I am loving the extra contour detail over the Garmin charts. I even managed to catch some more fish with some new spots I found.

They should update that chart to include the Garmin units, and tell which ones are compatible.
