    Is there any way to transfer waypoints from my Navionics PC App to my Humminbird or Lowrance units?

    I was reading about the new Sonar Charts feature coming out sounds exciting, what is the turnaround vs Freshest Data?

    Sonarfishing: yes. since you already have the PC App, download your numbers from your PC app under the setting feature to a SD or MSD card. You'll see a plotter choice as you do this. You can then place the SD chart into the Humm unit and upload the waypoints to the plotter. of couse this can be done the reverse as well from the Humm to the PC app for safe storage. always a good idea to back it up.

    hello Wayne: you are on as many forums as I am it seems. When you record on the Humm it should just simply record as all channels. under the "sonar page" hit menu and then select record sonar. that should be all that is needed. You will notice that to record on a Navionics chart it may not let you on the newer plotters to protect the chip integrity. if that is the case, record onto a blank SD. try and stop and start record when you can to keep the files a bit smaller.

    Wayne is refering to the new SonarCharts feature that is available to Humminbird. it is beta test mode right now but wil llaunch in the next motnh or so. this allows everyone in the Navionics Community to record sonar, upload the data, and in 24 hours have one foot contours for every where he/she and all Navionics contributing members have recorded. This is for free!! the only thing you need is a Navionics Hot Maps Platinum chart to do this. Reason being is a space issue. if you have a plotter that doesnt run Platinum, we have a solution coming for you very very soon. the Sonarchart can be viewed on the "fish n Chip" layer of the Humminbird. this will give you new lakes, new updates, and answer all the requests we have of how do i get my lake surveyed now. great product on Humminbird. Here is a brief video to explaqin a little more:


    thanks Wayne. As always, if you have other questions, let me know. good to see a familiar name

    Hi Richie, i saw your comment on the other thread. So you will have to disregard the part on "recording sonar". Navico users at this time are not able to do so. They can SEE the SonarCharts under the "Fish N Chip" layer as to the latest updates but currently cant particpate in the recording feature. At this time, yes Humminbird can do both! Record sonar with a Humminbird plotter, upload the data, and then get one foot contours 24 hours later. not only contours from where you have done SonarCharting but where all Navionics users have done it. massive crowd sourcing to get large amounts of "NOW" data.
    unfortuantely on the sonar logs you made on charts already... hold on to them. Hopefully Navico will allow you to give them to us soon. Meanwhile might need to borrow or buy a buddies Humminbird if you want to participate and need new data
    here is the info on SonarCharts:

    some added info for Navionics users.
    Check out our new website at www.Navionics.com for the new chart viewer. look at fresh and saltwater charts for anywhere in the world.
    On freshwater we currently now have over 3000 HD one foot contour lakes and over 20,000 lakes on Hot Maps. More lakes than any charting company in the world.

    more info on Navionics Sonarcharts:
    Screen one is a reservoir that was public lake data. Shot number two is the same area now with SonarCharts from Navionics

    I got a message to update to version 1.5.7 for the web store, but it doesn't update the 1.5.6. It indicates I have to delete 1.5.6 to download 1.5.7.

    If I delete 1.5.6, how do I get the web store again?


    Edited: I figured it out

    I updated my Navionics chip with version 1.5.7 and it will not load up correctly. It says loading charge while the screen is white. This is a replacement chip I got from Navionics because the last one didn't have enough space to do the fresh data. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Regarding the Hotmaps Platinum chips and the satellite imagery, what are the limits of the satellite coverage? Specifically, I'd like to know if a body of water not currently mapped on the East chip (Occoquan reservoir, VA) would include a satellite image of the same body of water. Does satellite coverage on the chips stop with those lakes already mapped?

    Just saw this post and thought I'd see if any of you could help me. I currently have a post in Miscellaneous 1- NAVIONICS SILVER ALL-IN-ONE COVERAGE ENTIRE US or CANADIAN Coast (SD card). I purchased this chip awhile ago and never used it. These were $169 and I am asking $50 for it. I haven't even had a sniff on it. Do any of you guys know why?

    Memphis: Send me a private message. I'll try and help you or get you to someone who can help you quickly. I need to check what plotter you are using and that you have the latest software. very odd on loader. lets talk.

    Mudkart: satellite coverage on coastal areas is full coast and usually inshore to 10-20 miles depending on the area (some areas farther). Satellite coverage on Hot Maps, currently is only around HD lakes. If there is a lake that we dont have, public lake, or lake that gets charted with SonarCharts: it doesnt mean it will get Sat overlay. That is something we need to add seperately. In order to do that, that must be submitted off our website as a request form and we prioritize those to add them in. hope that answers your question?
