Georgian Bay Charts

The Georgian Bay and the Trent-Severn system are by far the most popular recreational boating destination I supply. By my estimate, I’ve supplied around 500 systems for this area – from small sail boats to cruise ships. The amount of rocks and hazards in this beautiful area is mind boggling. You definitely want to have Georgian Bay marine charts and real time GPS tracking to enjoy this natural wonder safely. It’s important to have depths and depth contours, tides & currents, rocks and other hazards on the charts to stay as safe as possible.

Sometimes, It can be difficult to find a chip for your older chartplotter. Perhaps, you may want to have a backup unit. I definitely recommend this. Redundancy on the water is the way to go. Additionally, I would also recommend having a working transducer. You can connect one to one of my systems, or have a dedicated depth gauge. This provides an additional layer of safety.

I supply navigation laptops or navigation tablets with Georgian Bay charts included free of charge with all of my units. Just turn it on, and go! My units can be an excellent main or backup system for your vessel. I have anywhere from 7 inch up to 15.5 inch units, including waterproof systems which can be used outside in the elements. My systems have a number of advantages compared to conventional chartplotters. Just contact me with some information about your boat and needs, and I’ll answer your questions and provide additional information.

Why use a navigation laptop as a chart plotter?

My navigation laptop systems can be much more affordable than GarminLowranceSimradB&GFurunoHumminbirdRaymarineSi-Tex. I will also support my units forever! Furthermore, I believe that some of the commercial chart plotter brands gouge their customers. Large companies force their clients to upgrade by no longer supporting older units with chart and software updates. In addition, they charge outrageous fees for simple things like a larger screen size. I don’t do any of these things, and never will – guaranteed! In addition to these, please take a look at other advantages as well.

I am always happy to answer questions, and provide additional information. For example, exact dimensions, video demos of how something works, precise capabilities, screenshots of charts in your area, and more. I configure each unit specifically for you, which takes considerable effort. Therefore, please note that non-defective returns are only accepted within 7 days of receiving the unit and are subject to a 20% restocking fee. Some examples would be: change of mind, didn’t fit the available space, missing functionality, etc. I would much rather answer your questions before you order so I can confirm it can do what you need. I have a lot of experience, so this is not a problem! If you’re not sure if the system can do what you need, just ask me or please take a look at the video demos.
