SonarCharts is a bathymetric chart that, with more depth data richness, allows you to display improved bottom detail on your chartplotter screen. SonarCharts are generated automatically and are not intended for navigation. But SonarChart Live is a built-in free feature available on both Apple and Android.
SonarChart Live Is a bathymetric map that allows you to create new personalized maps in HD format that are displayed in real time during navigation. This feature can be activated by wirelessly connecting to the fish finder from your mobile device that has the app installed Navionics boating... Alternatively, it can be displayed directly on the screen of compatible plotters. The new chart appears as an additional layer on top of your map and is also saved to your device for future use.
Each uploaded log SonarCharts benefits you and the entire community Navionics. SonarChart Live automatically generates a data stream shared with Navionicsto improve the application for the sailing community. Navionics combines locator logs from individual users with existing data to make maps more and more accurate, even in the ever-changing sea, lake and river bed conditions. Currently, only Navionics accepts reports from all major location brands and mobile devices.
SonarChart Live Is a great way to track improvements because the outlines are instantly visible when you collect sonar data. You can check the processing status of the logs and see them on the map. New SonarChartderived from yours and other sounder logs checked and interpolated with existing data Navionics, will be available in about a week.
