The Navionics Boating app offers a rich set of invaluable features, allowing you to easily customize the map to fit your needs!

Open the app and go to Menu > Map Options:

• Turn Easy View ON to magnify icons and text

• If you’re in an area where water fluctuates due to droughts or floods, adjust the Water Levelsetting to alter contours and spot soundings accordingly

• Use Depth Shading to highlight depths up to a select value

• If you selected the SonarChart™ layer, SonarChart™ Density allows you to customize the amount of 1ft contour detail you want to see.


An active Navionics+ subscription allows you to gain access to even more tools with Advanced Map Options:

• Change the map display to a Satellite imagery or Terrain elevation view

• Turn Fishing Mode ON to engage the Fishing Range tool, perfect for anglers who want to target depths to catch a certain fish species. Simply enter the minimum and maximum desired values

• Easily adjust the depth value of Shallow Areas
