SonarChart™ Live

SonarChart Live allows you to create new personal 0,5 m HD bathymetry maps that develop in real time while navigating. The feature can be displayed directly on the screen of compatible plotters or on a mobile device within the Navionics Boating app when used with a sonar.

NON Wi-Fi Enabled Plotters

The following NMEA 0183 Wi-Fi Routers enable GPS plotters that do not have the Wi-Fi capability to share depth data with the Boating mobile app:
- GoFree WIFI-1 Module by Navico.
- Sonar Server by Digital Yacht. When used with a compatible chartplotter, it enables SonarChart Live and shows depth values. Other devices from Digital Yacht or other brands may be compatible.
