Updating navionics cards
The sub folders for 3D bathy info, topdown satellite photos and harbor images don't change -- understandable given that a Platinum card like this contains almost 8 gigs of data -- but those various .nv2 files must be the core vector chart data. Yes indeed, Navionics is now loading user generated data onto chart cards and when I put a freshened one into the test Raymarine e7 with the "Community Layer" turned on, there's all the Camden Harbor UGC that used to be only visible on a Navionics mobile or PC app.
I think that Raymarine's new e- and c-Series are the only MFDs that will show it right now, and the detailed interface to the data needs refining, but isn't this the first time that crowd sourced data -- CW article here -- has gotten all the way to a dedicated navigation device?
