Advanced Map Options

Customize your view

Change the way you view Navionics charts and focus on the details that matter most to you (see video).

What you can do

Highlight shallow areas

Whether you want to target shallow areas for sight fishing or avoid damaging your prop, recognize them at a glance by shading up to your preferred depth.

Adjust contour density

Sometimes less is more. Very steep drop-offs can result in overlapping contour lines. Now you can see more clearly by lowering the density level for SonarChart™.

Select a fishing range

When you know the fish are suspended over certain depths, highlight the range so you can quickly identify more places to check out.
