Lowrance has released software upgrade, version 3.0, which makes Elite-Ti 9 and 12 models, in addition to 5 and 7, compatible with Navionics SonarChart™ Live, Advanced Map Options and Plotter Sync. Each of these advanced features offers useful functionality to help Navionics customers boat safer, fish smarter and get the most out of their time on the water!
SonarChart Live allows boaters to create personal 1 ft/0.5 m HD bathymetry maps in real time on the display of their chartplotter. With SonarChart Live, boaters can engage their sonar to create new and increasingly detailed charts everywhere they go, raising awareness of shallow waters and frequently revealing previously uncharted bottom features, such as holes and drop-offs, that anglers seek out when targeting fish. While an active subscription is required to use SonarChart Live, all Elite TI models can now access previously recorded data on the chart overlay with SonarChart Live history, even with an expired subscription.
Advanced Map Options
Advanced Map Options gives plotter users the ability to customize their view of Navionics charts. Presentation can be modified to select a fishing range, highlight shallow areas and adjust SonarChart™ contour density, thereby making it quicker and easier to identify ideal fishing spots and repeat patterns.
Using built-in Wi-Fi, users can connect their compatible chartplotter to the mobile device via the Navionics Boating app and easily transfer routes & markers, download updated charts and more without having to remove their Navionics card.
Advanced features are available when using a Navionics card that has an active chart updates subscription. Software upgrade version 3.0 can be downloaded from Lowrance website.
