Update your charts and apps

A friend of mine recently ran aground and did some serious damage to his boat (thankfully nobody was injured) due to allegedly inaccurate charts. However, when we dug into it, turns out my friend had not updated his navigation charts or the navigation app. Personally I use Navionics app on my phone and I have auto updates set to on for the app through my phone settings. But I also am sure to update the charts within the app on a regular basis (every couple of weeks at the most). This way I have my bases covered on both fronts. It seems that updating your navigation tools is super important but doesn't get a lot of attention. Please remind your fellow boaters to update not only their charts but also their navigational apps, whichever app they choose to use.
