Plotter Sync allows Raymarine, Lowrance, Simrad, B&G plotter owners to transfer routes and markers, update charts and more!
What you can do
Transfer routes & markers
Easily transfer routes and markers between your plotter card and mobile app! A great time saver! Active app subscription is required. See this video.
Update charts on your plotter card to get the most current data via Plotter Sync! Active subscriptions and matching regions are required on both the plotter card and the app.
Activate & renew
From your boat, you can activate Navionics+ Large, Platinum+ or HotMaps Platinum plotter cards to enable daily chart updates and advanced features. You can also renew your plotter card subscription for another year. If you’ve done Plotter Sync before, you can renew directly from the app whether connect to the plotter or not. Just go to Menu > Device Connected.
Plan on mobile, go on plotter!
Conveniently plan your route using our Boating app. Study your cruising itinerary, identify your fishing spots then make your route with Dock-to-dock Autorouting1 and finally transfer to your plotter. Take advantage of this mobile feature if you don’t have Dock-to-dock Autorouting on your plotter!
Get Plotter Sync
Plotter Sync is compatible with Raymarine MFDs a, c, e, eS and gS Series from 2011 using LightHouse II release 10 or newer software, with Axiom & Axiom PRO using LightHouse III v3.3 or newer, and the Dragonfly PRO. Raymarine users can also upload sonar logs for improved SonarChart™ even without an active subscription on plotter or mobile.
Lowrance HDS Carbon, HDS Gen3, Elite Ti, Simrad GO, GO xse, NSS Evo3, and B&G Zeus3 and Vulcan models are compatible with Plotter Sync provided they have the most current software installed. In order to improve SonarChart™ for your area, you can use SonarChart™ Live for mobile, because in most cases these units cannot send sonar logs via Plotter Sync.
