Navionics Plotter Sync is more popular
Navionics’ Plotter Sync allows Raymarine, Lowrance, Simrad and B&G plotter owners to transfer routes and markers and update their charts.
The app allows routes to be transferred between plotters and a mobile phone or tablet and it’s a feature that’s being increasingly used by those plotting their routes ashore and then uploading them to their MFDs once on board.
“Users can take their time planning and plotting their route ashore. They can track their fishing or cruising route and then transfer it to their plotters once they get on board,”
explained Lance Godefroy. “The app allows charts to be updated while travelling. It’s especially ideal for those who don’t have dock-to-dock auto routing on their plotter.
“It is something that we’re seeing end users take advantage of more and more.”
In addition, the app will download the latest chart data – Navionics says it makes more than 2,000 updates to its nautical charts daily together with thousands of updates to its SonarChart and community edits.
This can then be uploaded to a boat’s MFD.
“Once on a boat, users can connect their phone with the wifi and connect to the plotter app that will find the chart and ask them if they want to syncronise,” added Lance.
