SonarChart™ works while you play!24 May 2013Category:SonarChartChartsmapsholidaysummer
The Memorial Day long weekend and the end of May in general, kick off summer activities throughout the United States and for people around the world. Summer involves taking advantage of warmer weather to spend more time with friends and family. This often includes boating and fishing, sailing, and cruising, with Navionics charts guiding the way in both new and familiar bodies of water. The difference this summer is that boaters can improve their charts while enjoying their favorite summer recreation.
With SonarChart™, Navionics became the first company in the world to introduce crowd-sourcing to cartography. While the SonarChart™ layer is made up of data from multiple sources, its evolution over time, incorporating new sonar logs from the boating and fishing community, is revolutionizing cartography. It’s simple and convenient for anyone to record sonar logs and upload them to navionics.com. A few hours on the water can make a huge difference. A small lake may not be charted at all, or backwater river channels and remote bays may lack detail. With real time crowd-sourced data, Navionics can provide new and updated charts for virtually any area, making updated SonarChart™ available for download to eligible Navionics cards. SonarChart™ is an exceptional value for boaters, because the cartography they own actually improves over time!
SonarChart™, which can be viewed online with Navionics WebApp, is included with Freshest Data for Platinum+ and HotMaps Platinum, Navionics+ and Navionics Updates. A Freshest Data subscription provides free updates to the Nautical Charts, SonarChart™ and Community Edits for 12 months, if activated within two months of product purchase.
