Lowrance, Simrad, B&G users can upload trails stored since day one! Enhance SonarChart™

22 August 2014

Have you owned a Lowrance, Simrad or B&G for some time? If so, you can create greatly enhanced SonarChart™ of your favorite boating areas with almost no effort at all! In fact, the factory default setting for Lowrance, Simrad and B&G models automatically stores trails, so unless you have turned trails off, there is a whole library of data residing on the plotter’s memory since day one. All you have to do now is export from your chartplotter to your Navionics card and upload to our website. Once trails are saved on a card, it can be plugged into a computer and the data is transferred to Navionics through the internet to generate new SonarChart™ in about one week.

Here is how: http://www.navionics.com/en/plotter-tutorial/lowrance. You can print these instructions before you go to your boat or read them on your phone while you are onboard next to your sonar.

Only Navionics accepts sonar logs from all major brands including most models of Humminbird (DAT and GPX on all combo models, GPX only on ION and Onix), Raymarine (SDF, NMEA, GPX) and Garmin (ADM). Check navionics.com/en/compatibility. Boaters can choose to share all of their logs at once or they can record and export specific files. Raymarine Wi-Fi plotters can also participate directly through the Plotter Sync feature embedded in Navionics mobile apps for iPhone and iPad.
