• Sync User Data – Automatically synchronize marked waypoints and routes between the app and chartplotter.
• Over-the-Air Software Updates – Once the app is paired with the chartplotter, notifications and update details combined with seamless delivery eliminate the need to transport updates from desktops via an SD card.
• View and Control – View and control your chartplotter from your smartphone or tablet from anywhere on the boat.
