Alternatives to Navico, Simrad, B&G, and Lowrance

As of 1st September 2021, SMG ceased distribution of all Navico brands and products including Simrad, B&G, Lowrance and C-Map.

With our customers help, SMG has significantly grown Navico sales in recent years, however, Navico has made a global decision to appoint exclusive distributors as part of the implementation of their Selective Distribution legal agreements. This conflicts with one of SMG’s core objectives, to provide the trade with the choice of market-leading brands through a single distributor.

It was therefore an easy decision to continue to offer our customers the wider product choice of Garmin, Raymarine and Furuno over the option to become an exclusive to Navico distributor.

To support customers, we have provided the following comparison chart, which will help customers explore the closest comparative products currently available in the Garmin & Raymarine product range. These are also linked to the appropriate pages on our website for each navigation.
