Florida Marine Tracks Card

Suggested by Capt. Rick Ryals, Northeast Field Editor

It’s one thing to have a good, updated nautical chart loaded onto your GPS chartplotter. It’s another thing—and a great thing—to have crisp aerial and satellite imagery of the waters and coasts. What if you also had recommended tracks, shaded caution zones, and updated navigation marker positions showing how to get in and out of prime backwaters, flats and other areas? That’s what the folks at Florida Marine Tracks offer. The FMT Chips are currently compatible with Lowrance, Simrad and B&G equipment (Navico). You load the chip in the unit, download the data and get going! A chip with images and tracks for the entire state of Florida, North and South, sells for $575. See
