Re: where can i buy navman software?

Could be difficult as Navman disappeared a couple of years ago by their parent compant Navico, and replaced with Northstar, which again got kicked to the side and basically forgotten about, replaced this time by lowrance in their marine catalogue in Australia. There are no spare parts available for them if you ring and they are not interested in them at all.

Northstar still lives i think but for road based gps only.

When somebody told me that I was delusional, I almost fell off of my unicorn.

No problems at all, while you can't buy a Navman plotter anymore the chart cards are still available.....

The cards (C Card type) are C-MAP from Jeppesen C-MAP by Jeppesen | Jeppesen and you can find out what will suit your plotter here for the 6500 you can use either NT NT+ & MAX, just remember you have the C Card type, not the SD Card.....

Plenty of WA charts here....C-Card | eBay

Or you could buy the whole of Australia!

I have a Navman 5605 that i use on my fishing boat, just bought new charts for it 2 weeks ago...
