iNavX, the benchmark marine navigation mobile
application, announced today, in partnership with Fugawi and
Navionics, the availability of Navionics charts in the iNavX
In-App Chart Store. This is a first for the industry, and iNavX
is the only independent marine navigation app to offer Navionics
charts to its users.

"When it comes to crucial navigation information, boaters'
decisions about what apps, electronics and charts they use can be
as varied and personal as the foul weather gear they wear to keep
them dry," said Shaun Steingold, CEO, NavX Studios. "The most
respected name in electronic charting and cartography is
Navionics and we are proud to be the only independent marine
navigation app to offer our users one touch in-app purchase and
download of the award-winning Navionics marine charts and maps.
iNavX gives boaters tons of features, but we also give them a
choice -the most powerful capability of any handheld navigation
system."

"We accept no compromises in both the products we produce and the
business partnerships we enter into," said Don Black, senior vice
president of global sales and marketing at Navionics. "iNavX has
demonstrated that they share our high standards and offer users a
powerful and feature-rich platform. Boaters will appreciate that
our charts can now easily be downloaded and used in iNavX, the
premier handheld navigation system."

iNavX is the leading marine navigation app and the only marine
navigation app that delivers hundreds of charts andfeatures to
sailors, boaters and anglers. The perfect marine navigation
chartplotter that also fits in the palm of your hand, iNavX can
be used as a chartplotter, a toolkit or as a redundancy system.

The feature-rich app is capable of displaying current position in
real-time using a mobile device's built-in GPS, as well as
plotting course, bearing and waypoints. Supporting NMEA data over
TCP/IP, iNavX also integrates with external GPS, AIS receivers
and transponders, and networked instruments including depth,
speed, wind, engine data, and batteryvoltage meters.Users can
easily manipulate data by panning, zooming and rotating charts,
as well as downloading GRIB weather forecasts.

"We have been deeply involved in the integration of these
best-in-class products," said Robin Martel, president, Fugawi."By
bringing together the most popular electronic cartography and the
most feature-rich navigation platform, users of iNavX will never
need to look for another solution again."
