SonarChart™ Live Settings

Connecting your mobile app to a sonar device with WiFi will automatically begin SonarChart Live by taking the depth input and drawing contours in real time.  If you are connected and do not see a live drawing there are several things you can check:
1.  Check your WiFi connection and try again
2.  Check to be sure the SonarChart Live transparency is not 100%
3.  Check to be sure SonarChart Live is turned on 
4.  Remember, the boat must be moving forward for the recording to begin drawing

SonarChart Live/Settings can be accessed through the Map Options menu by tapping the Map Options button in the lower-left of the screen or by going to Menu > Map Options.
■  SonarChart Live is turned on by default. To stop displaying this chart
    layer, turn OFF SonarChart Live in Map Options.
■  Water Level Correction, allows you to select a nearby
    tide station to automatically adjust the depth output for marine areas or
    manually adjust your water level for lakes.
    See Tide Correction & Water Level Correction for additional information.

SonarChart Live Settings
■  Edit SonarChart Live - Use your finger to swipe on the SonarChart
    Live layer to remove areas. Tap confirm to save changes.
■  Color Adjustment - Use the 3 sliders or any combination to create
    your own custom color view.  It is important to note that rich (darker)
    color indicates shallow water and that this parameter is tied to Depth
    Shading in the Map Options menu.  In water deeper than the Depth
    Shading value, the Sonar Chart Live will always appear as white.
■  Transparency - Use the slider to adjust color saturation and view the
    Navionics chart layer beneath. 
■  Create SonarChart Live (toggle) - Severs the depth input so the
    recording does not update in real time. You can continue to view
    previously created SonarChart Live data on the map without
    changing it with new data input.
Note:  Shallow Water Highlight, Water Level Offset, and within Fishing Range filters are not controlling the SonarChart Live recording.  They only influence the Navionics chart underneath.
