Plotter Sync

Plotter Sync

Plotter Sync allows compatible chartplotter owners to transfer routes and markers, update chart layers and more — to and from the Boating app. Watch this video.

What You Can Do

Without removing the card from your chartplotter:

From your boat, you can activate Navionics+™, Platinum+ or HotMaps Platinum plotter cards to enable daily chart updates and advanced features.

Easily transfer routes and markers between your mobile app and plotter card — a great time-saver! An active app subscription is required.

Update chart layers on your plotter card to get the most current data via Plotter Sync. An active app subscription is required.

You can also renew your plotter card subscription for an additional year. If you’ve used Plotter Sync before, you can renew directly from the app whether you connect to the plotter or not. Just go to Menu > Paired Devices.

Plan on Mobile, Go on Plotter!

Conveniently plan your route using our Boating app. Study your cruising itinerary, identify your fishing spots then make your route with Dock-to-dock Autorouting1 and finally transfer to your plotter. Take advantage of this mobile feature if you don’t have Dock-to-dock Autorouting on your plotter!
