Yes, the Navionics card is available.

So then I don’t know why sonarcharts or not available and greyed out. Navionics+ and platinum+ cards all have sonarcharts

For now I'll just use what I have to get me through this week of good weather and then see what help I can get from Navionics or the retailer.

Aaah so u haven’t activated and updated the card the first time? You need to do that on the PC with an sd card reader to get the bathymetry (sonarcharts) loaded

You may have to download the Navionics Chart Installer program and insert the card into your USB using their dongle to activate and update the card.

Once that is done, you should have all the latest chart updates, sonar charts and community edits on your card.

Yes. I remember doing that myself now you mention it. It also registers the card at the same time.

So I managed to get the micro sd card out, but the PC won't read it (as it is broken) so cannot do the activation. After discussion with Navionics it is easier to just go cough up for a new one and get it sorted tomorrow rather than save only $50 and have to wait for it to be sent in the mail by who knows when.

Experience is the great teacher once again.

That is my intention. Heading out both days.

You wouldn't happen to know if the schoolies are still on at Spot X would you ? I have other plans but the mind could be changed.
