Fishfinder now in Boating App29 August 2014
Navionics Boating for iPhone and iPad, version 7.2, includes a powerful new fishfinder feature that allows you to view sonar and Navionics charts, both full screen and split screen, within the same app. Simply connect wirelessly with SonarPhone hardware, and the app automatically displays the live data. This incredibly useful feature is possible due to a new partnership between Navionics and longtime innovators of sonar technology, Vexilar, Inc.
The easy-to-use fishfinder works with the SonarPhone T-Box setup, which includes a transducer and Wi-Fi transmitter that can easily be installed on any vessel. Boaters who are looking for a handy and inexpensive supplement to their current onboard systems also benefit from wireless access anywhere on the boat. And SonarPhone offers a convenient, affordable way to monitor sonar and position on smaller boats which might not normally have traditional chartplotter equipment onboard.
Depth data obtained every time you connect with SonarPhone allows Navionics to enhance SonarChart™ anywhere you go, including creeks, rivers and inlets where smaller vessels can easily access. Updated charts are available to you and the whole Navionics Community after about one week for any compatible device including mobile, plotter and web.
