Navico, the world’s largest marine electronics company adopted Qt to reduce costs and development time. Qt also lets Navico share code and development resources among multiple platforms simultaneously. Qt’s cross-platform support was also very important for Navico’s product development process.

Marine Navigation and Information System

Typical Lowrance HDS (High Definition System) units include built-in sonar, GPS and detailed mapping of inland and coastal marine areas. Their applications include locating fish and identifying underwater structures; creation and marking of waypoints, routes, and trails for fishing and navigational awareness and safety; and a variety of other tasks associated with monitoring and control of boats.


With the support of The Qt Company, Navico developed a marine navigation and information system for recreational vessels. Qt’s cross-platform application and UI framework support enabled Navico to reduce development time and costs.


Navico is the world’s largest marine electronics company with brands such as Lowrance, Simrad Yachting, and B&G. Navico has approximately 1,500 employees globally and distribution in more than 100 countries worldwide.
