Software updates released earlier this year for Lowrance, Simrad and B&G plotters enabled compatibility with Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting, SonarChart™ Live and Advanced Map Options. The latest version now available adds compatibility with Plotter Sync. Each of these advanced features offers useful functionality to help Navionics customers boat safer and fish smarter!
Using Plotter Sync, compatible models with built-in Wi-Fi can connect to mobile devices via the Navionics Boating app, enabling users to easily download updated charts and transfer routes and markers without having to remove their Navionics card.
SonarChart™ Live allows boaters to create personal 1 ft/0.5 m HD bathymetry maps in real time on the display of their chartplotter for new and increasingly detailed charts everywhere they go.
Advanced features are available when using a Navionics card that has an active chart updates subscription with compatible models: Lowrance HDS Carbon, HDS Gen3 and Elite Ti 5 & 7; Simrad GO, GO xse, NSS evo3 and NSS evo2; and B&G Zeus3, Zeus2 and Vulcan models. Lowrance Elite Ti (soon also 9 & 12) will be compatible with all features except Dock-to-dock Autorouting. Plotter Sync is possible on models with built-in Wi-Fi. Software updates can be downloaded from Lowrance, Simrad and B&G websites or provided on an mSD card upon request from Navionics.
