    Auto Chart Live

    http://www.humminbird.com/Category/T...utoChart-Live/



    Digital Lake Mapping Goes “LIVE”
    Humminbird’s Exclusive AutoChart® LIVE instantly creates precision contour maps

    ORLANDO, Fl. (July 9, 2014) – Imagine fishing a body of water where you possessed the only accurate contour map in existence. How about having the ability to create your own ultra-precise lake map, automatically and as you fish? What if you could make this map and watch it live right on your screen?



    A few passes with AutoChart LIVE provided additional detail that existing maps didn’t show – all the way to
    1-foot increments. The new data can be overlayed from 0-100% opacity over the original chart.


    Humminbird has once again gifted anglers with exclusive technology that will have an immediate, dramatic and positive impact on their fishing. AutoChart® LIVE is a remarkable DIY mapping program that allows anglers to create their own precision digital contour maps, live and on the fly.

    For folks fishing water bodies that haven’t been accurately surveyed—remote Canadian lakes, uncharted rivers, farm ponds, inshore areas, even offshore features—AutoChart LIVE provides a priceless service. On rivers and streams where changing water levels and underwater topography are frequently altered; in estuaries where storms change the landscape and create new channels and structure, AutoChart LIVE gives boaters the ability to navigate safely while also discovering brand new, undiscovered fishing hotspots.





    “There’s a lot of water in the world, and not all of it is mapped, or charted accurately,” says Humminbird Brand Manager, Jeff Kolodzinski. “AutoChart LIVE is the only tool that lets you create your own 100-percent accurate digital contour maps. It works instantly, too, so you literally watch the contour lines populate the screen while you fish or drive the boat.”

    Kolodzinski adds: “No extra processing of the data on a PC or sending an SD card to a third party is required. So if I’m on vacation in Canada, I can map a remote lake right away, and take advantage of my findings. I might be the only angler on earth who has this map, and I can choose to keep my data totally private. Or, when I return home, I can even share my map with a buddy, or trade my lake for his secret lake map. Incredible.”

    Offered as a free software upgrade exclusively for users of Humminbird’s powerful ONIX® andION® Cross Touch™ touchscreen units, AutoChart LIVE provides 8 full hours of mapping data. After 8 hours of data have been compiled, users can either erase the data and commence mapping, or purchase a Zero Line Map Card (MSRP $99).



    By choosing ‘Map Options’ in the main drop down menu, anglers can further customize their map and use LakeMaster’s patented Water Level Offset, Depth Highlight, and Shallow Water Highlight features. With AutoChart LIVE, anglers can also follow their new map contours via Minn Kota® iPilot® Link™, an industry first.

    Another Humminbird first, the Zero Line Map Card allows for literally decades of around-the-clock mapping. This potent technology also provides mapping boundaries or water body “zero lines” for millions of waters across the globe, which serve as the basis for each custom map creation.

    Once produced, AutoChart LIVE maps can interface with Minn Kota® iPilot® Link™ systems, taking advantage of such awesome boat control technologies as Follow the Contour. Moreover, new maps will also work in concert with other patented Humminbird features, such as Water Level Offset, Shallow Water Highlight and Depth Highlight.

    “All anglers know that 80-percent of the fish are found in 20-percent of the water,” says Kolodzinski. “The best way to identify that key 20-percent of the lake is to make use of a good chart. And AutoChart LIVE leaves no hotspot uncharted.”

    Here's a couple more humps I fish and spent less than 30 minutes mapping on each but look at all the data and details I collected. Sure makes it easier to understand where the fish are and why they love some places versus others.

    Nice contour lines but where are the depth markers for the contour lines?
    Is this a feature Hbird will be adding later?

    Right click on the created map and put a check mark by the ones you would like to see. there are 17 or 18 options, depth labels and contours are among them.

    I've got a shoreline question. The shoreline on Autochart is inaccurate. I traced a new shoreline in Google Earth and imported it into Autochart. When I create a map Autochart still uses the inaccurate shoreline instead of the new KML shoreline. I can see the imported KML shoreline but Autochart isn't using it for the map. I tried going into settings and changing the Shoreline settings but it didn't make a difference. What amI missing?

    Did you go in the settings menu and switch the shore option from Lake master to custom?

    Yes, I did change the shoreline option to custom and then tried to re-draw the map (pushed the create map button again). I assumed that the map would re-draw within the parameters of any settings that were changed. Maybe not? I'm wondering if I need to start from scratch with the map after changing to the custom option.

    Autochart Pro question... I'm a Long way from updating to Onyx, since I only recently purchased the 1198, 998HD, 958, and old style 5 port hub that are on my boat now... So here are my AC Pro questions:
    1. If I record SI on my 1198 (console), make the mosaic on the card with my PC, can I put the card in the 998 (bow) and view the Mosaic there? (Different screen sizes does not work for capture and replay, so I'm concerned)
    2. I run Navionics+ cards in both my units. Can I overlay the SI Mosaic onto the Nav+ map? What do I set the "map select" menu to?

    Thanks in advance! I wanna make sure all this works before I spend the $250.

    Can you use older recordings to make maps with autochart? Such as I have some older recordings from an 1197, 798 and 1198. The instructions say to record to the zero lines card and import the data. Can you import the older recordings and use them?
    I posted this question on the autochart forum also.
