GeoNav, coming to the U.S.A.?


It’s interesting that Johnson Outdoors, makers of Humminbird electronics, announced the acquisition of GeoNav a few days ago. I’ve long thought that GeoNav gear was noteworthy, as noted recently, but never wrote much about it because it was never marketed in the U.S. The reason? GeoNav was owned by Navionics, which had made the decision some time back not to compete with their many OEM customers—Raymarine, Lowrance, Northstar, etc.—in the States. Now it looks like that restriction is finished and, though I have no idea of Johnson Outdoor’s plan, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some rejiggered GeoNav products come to America. One particularly interesting unit to look for is this GeoNav 3, an amazingly powerful but tiny handheld.
