The iNavX app is available for iPhone and Android devices.

iNavX, a mobile navigation application, will be releasing a new backend system on December 1. The update will replace the Fugawi system and establish a direct relationship between iNavX and the chart providers offered through its platform.

“Our development team has been working for some time to create our own infrastructure so we can better serve iNavX users, Shaun Steingold, CEO NavX Studios, said in a statement. “By moving the app infrastructure in-house and building on current relationships with our chart providers, we are confident we can offer an unparalleled system and deliver a more efficient user experience.”

iNavX lets users find their location using the mobile device’s GPS and plot course, bearing and waypoints. The app includes access to charts from leading providers including Navionics, NV Charts, Explorer and Waterway Guide. Theyr Weather and iNavX AIS Live are optional services, providing a graphic overlay for weather and AIS information. GRIB forecasts and weather overlays can be downloaded and displayed on the app. iNavX is available through the App Store for $49.99 and is free for Android devices. iNavX Android PRO, a premium service, is available for $59.99 per year and chart purchases vary by provider and region ranging from $19.99 to $249.99.

Fugawi announced that it as of November 30, it will no longer sell downloadable charts, renewals or content for us with navigation software and apps. The iNavX and Fugawi teams have been working in collaboration to ensure a smooth transition.
