California coastal anglers should be particularly interested in the fact that the new C-MAP MAX-N chart data will include all the updated Marine Protected Area boundaries and will be compatible with existing Navico units. This ability to pinpoint your vessel’s location in relation to closed or restricted fishing areas right on the charts can be invaluable. Availability is scheduled for April 2013.
