SonarChart™ and SonarChart™ Live
Exclusive SonarChart, the award-winning 1 ft/0.5 m HD bathymetry map, is continuously improved with sonar logs uploaded by boaters. Upload your sonar logs to build even better local charts for your area. With SonarChart Live, you can create personal HD bathymetry maps in real time. Coming soon, SonarChart Live will display directly on the screen of compatible Lowrance, Simrad and B&G models. Display on a mobile device is possible using an NMEA0183 compatible Wi-Fi router, for example the Navico branded GoFree WIFI-1 Module together with a Lowrance, Simrad or B&G plotter/sonar. Alternatively you may opt for the Lowrance HDS Gen3 fishfinder/chartplotter, which has built-in GoFree wireless connectivity. SonarChartLive is a feature available in the Navionics Boating app and is the most efficient way to enhance SonarChart because your sonar logs are automatically sent to Navionics from your mobile and you can also monitor the improvements while navigating. You may check your logs processing status and see them on the map
