Navionics Sonarcharts On Guntersville Big At Bassmaster Classic Expo

Recommended Posts

Working the Navionics booth this weekend at the Bassmaster Classic Expo, there's was much hype behind the Navionics SonarCharts and how it's elevating lake mapping standards by putting anglers closer to the fish in a much more efficient matter. Here's a quick screenshot of one of the many examples on Guntersville where newer, fresher maps show how SonarCharts stays up with lake current and how natural elements effect the lake bottom.


 


Here's the original from when the lake was surveyed.

Here's how SonarCharts is shows these changes and also shows where the fish will hide on these main lake ledges.

I did look into the 3D charts it didn't include the St Lawrence River or Black Lake, NY I spend 5 weeks there doesn't have as much water as the 2D version.

Navionics Hotmaps Platinum, Navionics Hotmaps Premium and Navionics+ have the exact same maps if they are current.

That is the purpose of the Freshest Data updates that have been in affect since mid 2010.

 

Black Lake is included but only has a single 10' contour line with the Navionics map and has 1' contours with the Sonar Charts layer..

The St. L river is done like coastal/tidal waters with spot soundings as long as it contacts the US border. It covers a little farther down stream after it is wholly in Quebec.

Additionally you can view the current maps on the Navionics web site with their Web App.

That app is updated daily.

Did you LOOK at the Web App maps? I did,  and I have a current updated Navionics Hotmaps Platinum East card that has the same data as the Web App. 

I was looking at the coverage for the river and lake on both as I was typing my response.

HELLOOOOOO, I LOOKED at the 3D card details it didn't show the St Lawrence, NY and Black Lake, NY in 3D if it's not in 3D it doesn't matter can't make it any plainer than that.

OOOOHHHH, I misunderstood that you didn't see the waters at all.

So you just want the 3D view of those. Well you won't get a 3D view of waters that are not HD surveyed. Those are not HD surveyed.

 

BUT, the 3D is a fantasy. The contour lines are not accurate enough to depict the true shape of the bottom even if the body of water is HD surveyed. If you think what you are seeing with the 3D is real, you are mislead.

Thank you for the 3D info I now know not to waste my money on the 3D scam no matter what body of water.
