Navigation option for Murphy Screen

Does anyone have any experience with adding Nav/ Plotter to their 2013 or newer boat? Is this a dealer added option? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

All you should need is a navionics flash drive. I have used my same one since 2012. Not sure if it is MC specific or not, but I did get mine from my dealer. It was a couple hundred bucks if I remember right.

Navionics

I just need a little more detail. Just order the flash drive from Navionics and plug in? Does it upload or stay plugged in. Also where does it plug in. Sorry 8 degrees here or I would do some hunting around. Thanks

Do I need an activation code for the system and then a standard navionics sd map card or how does this work. The price through my dealer was absolutely ridiculous... robbery in my opinion. An sd map card price is only 200usd...

I priced last year through the dealership and if memory serves it was over $1,000. If there is another way I'd be very interested.

You need three things.

Unlock code
Navionics sd card (bass pro- cabellas or etc..)
GPS antenna

I was told the unlock code is about $400.00 but my unlock code was already provided when I went to the unlock screen. If yours is the same then an antenna and maps and your good to go. I have a 2010 medallion, but yours should be the same

I got the GPS flash/dongle last year. Plugs into USB next to throttle. Have yet to use it as it kept crashing my system, and I moved to the lake and really wanted it for the ocean.

Does anyone have any video of the system in use? I searched Youtube and don't find anything.

I just purchased this for my X23. It a small thumb drive that plugs into the port under the throttle. No code or anything is needed. You literally just plug the small thumb drive in and your good to go. The map will start reading GPS.

It is a nice feature however It doesn't carry my whole river. but what I like about it is that if we run out to the bay it has all the channel makers in addition to the depths in the water. Its a cool add on and from a dealer it will run you around 700.00..
