Really Looking forward to using this awesome new feature! Shading Coming Soon to Platinum+ and HotMaps Platinum
SonarChart Shading is a new chart feature Navionics will be adding to their exclusive Platinum+ and HotMaps Platinum cartography products for coastal and inland fishing and boating.
Embedded within the satellite overlay content layer, SonarChart Shading provides a detailed rendering of the seafloor and lake bottom to deliver a unique perspective of underwater topography at a glance. Created from the high-definition 1’ contour data within SonarChart, varying shades of blue reveal changes in depth, highlighting channels, drop-offs and other features to give you better situational awareness and clear, visual cues to identify fish-holding structure.
SonarChart Shading can be viewed on GPS chartplotters that are compatible with HotMaps Platinum and Platinum+ satellite overlay and with the same options, including selectable overlay on land, land and shallows, or full overlay. Adjustable transparency allows you to view the new imagery blended with either the SonarChart bathymetry map or the nautical chart.
