Furuno 1971f now compatible with navionics

 Was on Facebook this morning and someone had put up a post about the new update for the 1871 & 1971gp units. I have done the update now I just have to put my navionics onto a sd card, will be handy to get all my spots too.

But I am having trouble getting it onto the sd card, there is a bit of info on the net I will have another try my subscription ends in a couple of weeks maybe that has something to do with it.

That's awesome news, just saved me buying a standalone plotter.

Next question - where is the best place to purchase Navionics Platinum XL chart for WA?
