Live Sonar Mapping Posted on March 25, 2016

Live Mapping

Making your own maps of your fishing spot live is quickly evolving. I started with DrDepth on my boat laptop.

I now use Humminbird AutoChart Live.

Using live mapping on your GPS screen is the best since it is easily viewed and Humminbird really simplified the process.

You have 2 other choices, Navionics Live SonarCharts which is done on a phone or tablet.

This image is using the Vexilar SonarPhone and a tablet.

Garmin just released its version of live mapping called Quickdraw.

You have lots of choices so if your maps suck what are you waiting for?

Review and how to use the Sonarphone T-POD.

It worked better than I predicted. If you fish from shore, docks or in a boat at anchor this is another tool for the toolbox.
