Go 9

Can you tell me if I was to trade up for a Simrad GO9 on my boat would the navionics charts be pre installed or would I need an additional chip? I would also like to purchase the marine tracks charts. Will those work on the Simrad?

    The Go9 is one of the units that will be included with the Navionics+ bundle package this year. Just make sure you are buying a Go9/Navionics bundle and you should get the chip with it. 

    If you already have a chip (of any kind) and want to buy a new Navionics chip, they are offering a $75 rebate right now. Trade in your old chip, get $75 back on a new one ($50 if it's a Navionics Regions chip).

    And will the Marine Tracks software work in the GO 9?

    Are you aware that Navionics has nothing to do with Marine Tracks?  The question was obviously ignored on purpose.  Asking a Navionics rep about FMT is like going to Home Depot and asking the manager in there about what Lowes has.

    Certainly did not mean to offend. Perhaps this would be a better question; On my phone with the Navionics app I can see google overlays which I like as I tend to pole into the back country and can get turned around and push pretty deep. I find this helpful in planning my exit without retracing my steps. I had a Go9 with Navionics on my offshore boat and loved it but now plan on putting one on my skiff. Is the google overlay available on all units with Navionics installed? I never messed with it on the offshore boat. Hope I stayed at Home Depot.......

    The satellite overlay is available on all Navionics Platinum+ cards. And those Platinum+ cards work in most units, but to be sure, this is the link to the Compatibility chart so you can make sure your plotter will accept the Plat+ card. https://d2wb2wm9dm62ai.cloudfront.net/wysiwyg/docs/Compatibility_Guides/Americas_CompatibilityGuide.pdf
