Marine navigation mobile application iNavX announced, in partnership with Fugawi X-Traverse, the launch of its chart and map in-app purchase program.

iNavX said it gives boaters to the broadest set of marine charts and maps from multiple providers. iNavX users will gain download capabilities for such charts and navigation data as Navionics’ worldwide chart catalog; Canadian Hydrographic Service charts; Fugawi Aboard quilted Canadian and U.S. charts; NV Charts for Europe, the United States and the Caribbean; Theyr weather; Waterway Guide; and more from X-Traverse.com.

The iNavX app is also the exclusive source for the standalone electronic version of the Explorer Charts for the Bahamas.

“Marine navigation is a crucial part of any boat trip, whether down the lake or across the ocean,” NavX Studios CEO Shaun Steingold said in a statement. “We respect that navigators have their own preferences for the tools they use to the charts they prefer, which is why we are the first app to give users a choice. While most apps can only distribute either their own charts or free National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration charts, iNavX is the most versatile and feature-rich navigation app available.”

“iNavX has always been at the forefront of innovation for handheld navigation,” said Robin Martel, president of Northport Systems. “By working closely with our programmers, iNavX has streamlined access for its customers to the chart offerings available through Fugawi X-Traverse. With this new in-app purchase option, iNavX handheld navigation can be personalized to fit your needs, while remaining precise, efficient and cost-effective.”

iNavX is available for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPads from the App Store and priced at $24.99. Chart prices vary by manufacturer and region from $9.99 to $249.99.
