|Manasquan, NJ - Navionics has partnered with the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey, West Marine and other local businesses to organize the Remap New Jersey/Sandy Project. The Remap New Jersey/ Sandy Project is a 3-day event to be held July 19-21 in order to remap affected areas along the New Jersey coast. As part of this effort, Navionics will donate $1 per mile of sonar logs to benefit the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey Recovery & Relief Fund.
How to help: Hummingbird and Garmin users can record sonar logs, and then upload them to the Navionics webstore. Updated charts, reflecting everyone's contributions to SonarCharts and Community Edits, can be downloaded after about one week. Visit navionics.com/sandy for further details.
Navionics representatives will be at three locations to kick off the event with how-to seminars. There will be free food, drinks and prizes to those who show up to learn how to help fellow boaters remap the coast. Seminars will be held July 18 and 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the following locations.
