Marine Navigation & Electronics

Presentation - Do You Know Where You Are Going? – Electronic Navigation Tips & Tricks - Modern marine electronics provide a great benefit to boaters when it comes to navigation, weather, fishing, collision avoidance or just the plain fun and joy of being out on the water. Sometimes it can be difficult to decide what you really need. Joanne will discuss the important features of a chartplotter, GPS, radar and fish finder and answer some of the most common questions she hears. Should you use an all-in-one multifunction display or separate displays? What are the pros and cons of a touch screen vs. buttons? How about raster or vector charts? What about an iPad for navigation? What is auto-routing? How do I Bluetooth my smart device to my chartplotter what are the benefits or advantages, to the integration of marine apps.


For the past six years, Joanne has been the Product Training Specialist at Garmin International. She provides product training and support for dealers and customers across Western Canada. She grew up in rural Ontario and always had a great love of the waters and the outdoors. It was this passion that brought her to the marine industry.
