  • Here is a great video explaining the benefits of Navionics daily updates and how they can help you. When was the last time you updated your Navionics card? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2JpI8qzNhA

    • It's getting to be that time when the fish will be heading out to the main lake. I like to use the Navionics depth highlight range in conjunction with the contour filter. I'll scale down the contours to show me everything 20 ft or less then put my depth highlight range at 12-19.

      • Do you have a Navionics Premium card? Check out the difference between a old Navionics Premium card and the Navionics Update card. You will go from having coverage on the east coast the entire U.S. and Canada. You will also gain SonarCharts with the Update card which is information people have sent in to Navionics to build a better map.

          I added a couple of sonar logs to the Sonar Charts program last night. Today I checked my upload history and now have 395 uploads.

          • Wow! You are a recording machine. My recording has gone down because I sold my boat a couple of months ago. How do you record SonarCharts on a Humminbird Helix unit?

              You can't do Sonar Charts Live with a Humminbird.
              I started doing sonar logs to submit to the Sonar Charts program before it was started in the US. I knew it was "in the works" due to interaction with Navionics for a few years prior.
              It involves recording sonar logs to a memory card and uploading the data via Chart Installer. That was using my 1198's and former 798. Since then I have used two different Helix units, an ONIX and a SOLIX.
              The two logs I did last week were using one of my 1198's.
              I have also done Sonar Charts Live with the Navionics App and Vexilar Sonarphone on my tablets and smart phones. Actually those are not included in the account log of 395. I get separate processed notification for those.

              Navionics tried to get Lowrance and Garmin involved in Sonar Charts in the beginning, but they refused to allow their data to be processed by Navionics. Humminbird and Raymarine were the only two that were cooperating.

              • Sometimes you can too many contours on the screen and it can get difficult trying to find key areas. What I like to do on the Navionics App is eliminate certain depth contours I know I won’t be focusing on. Doing this can help you find certain characteristics easier. What I do is turn the satellite overlay feature on, turn fishing mode on, select the contours I want stay between and take my depth contours and put it 1ft deeper than my maximum depth range. Once I do that you can see everything in white is between 9-15ft, everything in blue is 16ft or deeper and everything in clear is shallower that 9ft. This is a feature I like to do when fishing off shore.

                  • Hello Folks,
                    New to the forum. Although I have introduced myself under the intro thread, I just wanted check in under the electronics and especially under the anything Navionics thread already started. I am a tournament angler located in Northern Virginia, spend a lot of time on the water and I am sponsored by Navionics. Look forward to meeting some other freshwater and saltwater anglers alike. If you guys and gals haven't checked some of the free Navionics webinars where many different topics are discussed (just watched a great one by Elite Angler Brandon Card on summertime top water last night) here is the current schedule and link to check them out.

                            • Sonar Chart Live is a really cool Navionics feature allowing you to create new 1 ft/0.5 m personal HD bathymetry maps in real time as your boat moves along the water! It appears as an additional layer over your map while it also gets stored on your device for future use. It allows the user to connect to a sonar/plotter to use SonarChart Live on the app! SonarChart Live is the most efficient way to enhance a SonarChart because your sonar logs can also be shared with Navionics from your mobile device and you can monitor the improvements while navigating. This feature allows you to create an account/Log In to check the processing status of your sonar logs. It is perfect for small reservoirs and lakes that has no details available or even popular fishing destinations when you want greater detail for particular areas.
