Autorouting is possible using Navionics charts on the best plotters from leading brands including Humminbird, Lowrance, B&G, and now, Raymarine. The Autorouting feature calculates and displays the shortest route between two points customized according to the boat’s draft as entered by the user, taking into consideration depth, cables, restricted areas and other areas where navigation is forbidden.
A convenient, easy-to-use tool, Autorouting helps boaters enjoy their time on the water, whether sailing off on a day trip or departing for a long-distance excursion. Utilizing the best detail available from Navionics cartography, Autorouting enables boaters to quickly plan their itinerary for cruising from port to port, island hopping, or heading well offshore to productive fishing areas.
Autorouting functionality works with Navionics+, Navionics Updates (for Silver and Gold users), Platinum+ and HotMaps Platinum chart cards in the following plotters where permitted:
Raymarine: a, c, e and gS Series Multifunction displays, with R11 software update (available globally)
B&G: Zeus 2 (available outside USA)
Lowrance: HDS Gen2 with 3.0 firmware update (available outside USA)
Humminbird: ONIX and ION (available within Europe only)
Autorouting is for general planning and reference only – it does NOT replace safe navigation practices and should never be your only reference source.
