Exclamation Navionics LakeVu Winnipesaukee Problem!!

Garmin "Navionics" LakeVu problem for Lake Winnipesaukee
Lake Winnipesaukee boaters, please be aware Garmin LakeVu charts, a Navionics cartography chapter, formerly known as "inland lakes and rivers" or "Lakes Detail" etc, has released an update sometime in the summer of 2022.

Photos below show general nav markers are NOT as they once appeared in the previous versions.

Please submit a chart error report with Garmin here:


Only if more users bring this to their attention, will it expedite a chart update.

LakeVu, by Navionics, now owned by Garmin, is NOT the same as the free "Navionics" app on your phone. Please be aware this is no fault to your service provider, but is an issue with the cartography itself.

If you have a previous version of LakeVu, DO NOT UPDATE via active captain as I am not certain you will be allow to back rev.

Until there is a fix, there are no decent charts available for use with Garmin that have auto route guidance.

Raymarine Lighthouse charts do not cover the lake nearly as well as LakeVu did. Bizer will not work with new model Garmin displays. Furthermore, Bizer is owned by C-MAP.

Cue the Jeopardy music while we wait.. or file a report with detailed screen shots and we might see an update faster.

Currently, only channel markers and lighted bouys are displayed correctly on the latest LakeVu, of which, is v23.xx however traditional spar makers are depicted without color and without proper information under 'info'. Traditional spar markers are identified as "beacons"

Firmware and chart updates do not fix the issue nor is there a setting on the display. it is within the recent versions of Navionics LakeVu discovered late summer 2022.

Pre LakeVu G3 V22.xx appear to be ok, its only 23.xx that has the issue!
