Can I use this Navionics chart region with iNavX for the iPhone
or iPod touch as well as iPad?

touch OR iPad. Navionics charts purchased for iPhone will not run
on iPad. Nor will Navionics charts purchased for iPad run on iPhone.

Can I purchase the Navionics charts from a source other than X-Traverse.com

No. Only genuine Navionics charts, subscribed to from www.x-traverse.com
are compatible with iNavX. Charts on Navionics Plug-and Play media
will not work. Charts purchased from iTunes through the Navionics
Mobile App will not work.
Can I use the charts included with my Navionics Mobile App in iNavX?
A: No. Because of the way that the Apple Apps are designed and bundled,
it is not possible to utilize the charts from one App in another
App. Navionics Mobile charts are priced much lower than the Plug-and-Play
Navionics charts, but are only licensed for use in two mobile devices
which you own.
Can I use the Navionics charts subscribed to from X-Traverse.com
in another product, such as Fugawi Marine ENC or a Navionics compatible
A: You must purchase the Navionics region specially for either iPhone/iPod
touch OR iPad OR Fugawi Marine ENC/MacENC (each edition is priced
differently). For other PC/Mac software, or chart plotters, you
must purchase the Navionics charts on official Navionics Plug-and-Play
media such as CF or SD card.

HotMaps Explorer, GPSNavX
or MacENC. Additionally,
waypoints may be created with any software application which supports
GPX or KML format and uploaded to your iNavX software using your
web browser from www.x-traverse.com.
Are other maps and charts available for use in iNavX?
A: Yes. iNavX comes with free access to the complete set of NOAA
Raster Navigational Charts® (NOAA
RNC). Other select raster charts are available via subscription
Why should I choose Navionics charts if I already have coverage
from the NOAA RNCs?
A: The choice is yours. However the Navionics
charts are generally clearer to read at varying zoom scales and
many people prefer the "look and feel" of the crisp and
clear Navionics charts. For salt water regions outside of the coastal
U.S. or its territorial waters, there are no NOAA RNC charts. The
Navionics HotMaps charts of U.S. and Canadian freshwater lakes are
the industry "gold standard" with the widest coverage
and exclusive high-definition 1' contours fro select lakes from
Navionics' own on-the-water surveys.
How do I report missing information for the Navionics chart on my
A: Navionics encourages users of all its products to submit feedback

products are the best and most accurate available. Your feedback
counts! Help to make Navionics products even better. Click

How much storage space will iNavX plus the Navionics region(s) consume
on my iPhone?
A: It varies depending on the region you download, but is typically
100-200MBs. However iNavX permits you to download one, many or all
of the individual maps which make up a region. An individual map
file may be between 5 MB and 90 MB but are typically around 10-20
For how long can I utilize the Navionics charts which I subscribe
to from X-Traverse.com?
A: You may continue indefinitely with viewing and using Navionics chart regions downloaded to your iOS device. However, charts are only licensed for use on two iOS devices of the same type which you own. When you make your first download, the chart regions are effectively locked to the unique iOS device. X-Traverse.com guarantees to retain the Navionics chart collection you subscribed to for up to one year after your purchase. Therefore you may re-download any chart as many times as you like (onto the same device) for up to one year, provided you maintain an active X-Traverse Data Passport account. To download the charts again after the subscription period, you may renew / upgrade the chart updating subscription at a discounted rate.
Does iNavX run on the original iPhone?
A: Yes, but instead of using GPS positioning, cell towers are triangulated
to compute a location (generally not as accurate as GPS).
Q: Does iNavX run on the iPod touch?
A: Yes, but instead of using GPS positioning, NMEA data
from a navigation application running on a Mac or PC via the WiFi
connection must be used to determine location.
Will iNavX run on other non-Apple smart phones?
Is iNavX manufactured by Fugawi Software?
A: No. iNavX is an independent application manufactured by GPSNavX.
Is there an iNavX user guide?
A: Yes, it is here: www.inavx.net/help/
