    Dear Russ,
    In your post of June 1st   for the blog story More support for Active Captain…  we noticed some inaccuracies that we would like to bring to your attention. 
    The inference in your statement “strangely you have to submit additions to their UGC layer using an online form on the Navionics website and it is not integrated with another product other than Navionics own chart plotting software – so why bother with their own, limited, UGC community” is that Navionics has a small UGC community only supported by our website..
    In fact, only a very small percentage of Navionics UGC is collected from submissions to our website.  The vast majority is derived from our new Navionics PC/Mac APP and hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPad and Android app users as well.  This is a global community of users that contribute at a rate many times greater than all of the Hydrographic Offices.  The benefit is that this data along with our own surveyed data and external sources is continually validated and implemented into our  cartographic data base and transferred via Navionics Freshest Data program.  User’s simply update their chip on our web store and reap the benefits of having the contributions resident on their charts for their plotters.  Our UGC program has been the cited as the foundation for our App winning the DAME award at METS as well as Innovation awards in both Miami and Shanghai.
    Thank you, Navionics

    • Hello Navionics

      I stand corrected – and thank you for the information that puts the record straight 🙂

      I must say that I was surprised – not at my ignorance which seems to have no bounds! – but at all this functionality that has not been brought directly to my attention as a user of the Navionics UK/Holland iPhone product for the past year. I dont recal being emailed; being notified via the iPhone app store; or being notified by the application while I have been using it. I am well familiar with the updating of my Raymarine plotter having done that for many years but I had no idea that there was something more I could do with the iPhone app !
      I have had the “Community Layer” set to ON all year but did not realise that the words “add an Object” was an invitation for UGC and the gateway to the UGC community….just shows how dumb I am!
      I will have a go with the Navionics UGC…. 🙂
