Navionics Boating - Get Hooked on SonarChart Live

 

See SonarChart™ on your Boating app

If you haven’t yet downloaded charts to your Boating app, select Menu > Download Map. The Navionics icon in the lower left corner indicates that Nautical Chart is being displayed. Just tap the icon to switch to SonarChart™! You may need to zoom in to see the 1 ft contours.

Create new HD maps!

SonarChart™ Live allows you to create personal 1 ft HD bathymetry maps while you are boating. You can create them using either your plotter or mobile device. On mobile, you also need a compatible sonar/plotter equipped with internal or external Wi-Fi. Just open the app and go to Menu > Connect a Device to begin. Once your app and your sonar are wirelessly connected, you will see the new chart layer as it is drawn in real time while you navigate.

Customize your SonarChart™ Live maps

Go to the app Menu > Map Option:

- to make sure you can clearly see the new contour lines, select the higher value for Depth Shading

- to customize color and transparency or stop creating maps, go to SonarChart™ Live Settings

- to personalize the amount of contours to display, adjust SonarChart™ Density

- to hide the new layer, toggle SonarChart™ Live OFF

-

Increase the detail of SonarChart™ for your area

Any SonarChart™ Live map you create can enhance SonarChart™ where you go boating! When you automatically send sonar logs to Navionics, they are integrated with existing data. After about one week, check the Chart Viewer and update your charts to see the result of contributions from you and all other boaters!

 

If you do not have the Boating app yet, download the FREE version to start creating your own new maps right away on your iPhone, iPad or Android phone and tablet. A 2-week trial of Navionics+ starts automatically.
