has just released their "Raymarine R17 Software" which allows for autorouting from within the Raymarine chartplotter
using the Navionics
chip. I just got the email
today from Raymarine about this. Here is a video with a really good explanation of it:
In fact, it apparently comes with not just the AutoRouting feature but SonarChart Live feature (described here: https://youtu.be/8XutSXTI4GA
) where you can update your charts
in real time based on the data your transducer is collecting.
And it also includes Advanced Map Options which allows you to customize your view of the Navionics
chart by highlighting shallow areas, adjusting SonarChart contour density and a bunch of other things.
The link in the email
I got goes here for all that info in one place: Raymarine software update delivers Navionics advanced features | Navionics
You can also do all of this from the Navionics app on your iphone
, android phone
or tablet, fyi. So if you want to do it from your couch, that's the option for ya.
