SonarChart™ Live

SonarChart Live allows you to create new personal 1' HD bathymetry maps that develop in real time while navigating. The feature can be displayed directly on the screen of compatible plotters or on a mobile device within the Navionics Boating app when used with a sonar.

NON Wi-Fi Enabled Plotters

The following NMEA 0183 Wi-Fi Routers enable GPS plotters that do not have the Wi-Fi capability to share depth data with the Boating mobile app:
- GoFree WIFI-1 Module by Navico.
- Sonar Server by Digital Yacht. When used with a compatible chartplotter, it enables SonarChart Live and shows depth values. Other devices from Digital Yacht or other brands may be compatible.
