Satellite Overlay

Satellite Overlay

Situational awareness

Especially helpful in congested ports and marinas, crisp satellite overlay can also help you find hidden features such as backwater channels that might hold fish.

What you can do

Set your display

Satellite overlay can be displayed on land only, land and shallow water or full overlay.

Adjust transparency

The transparency can be adjusted so that Navionics charts are fully or partially visible through the satellite overlay. This is helpful in shallows waters such as marsh areas or shoals and sandbars.
