ActivCaptain App for Garmin

Recommended Posts

I have a Garmin EchoMap 93sv, have it installed on the boat and have it set up with my phone using the ActivCaptain App. I'm not really sure how to use the app on my phone. I can get my texts on the fishfinder but what is the advantage of having the app on my phone? I can look around and see the map of where I'm at on my phone but I don't really know how to use the app? I'm usually intuitive when it comes to figuring out apps without the directions but I don't know where to start and didn't really see any vids on youtube. I haven't been on the water with the Garmin yet so maybe I'm just missing something. Can someone point me in the right direction as far as some "how to's"?

You can install an iPad holder on the bow if your Garmin is on the console, instead of having 2 separate fishfinders.

I am just exploring the app.  you can download maps to the your phone or tablet.  This way, you can study locations, create waypoints while watching tv... then upload them to your fish finders next time you power them on.  

 

Yesterday I did some exploring on the maps to see how active other users are.  I found areas where people have uploaded contours, I found places where I could add to the community because there was not any.  I found some remote places in another state that I fish that someone has added information.  That was cool.  

 

For me, most apps and companion apps are a waste of time.  Updating the devices using wifi and a phone/tablet is just stupid.  The fish finders should be networkable and able to connect to a network or each others.  

 

I can provide more feedback later this week.
