How to transfer routes and markers

>From plotter to mobile app
Save all the Routes and Markers you have on your plotter to your Navionics card or a blank card (Chart Menu > Routes/Waypoints > Import/Export > Save Route/Waypoint to Card > Select All > Save).
- On plotter, turn on the Wi-Fi network (Tools & Settings > Wi-Fi Settings > ON - log into network or turn OFF security).
- On mobile, go to your device Settings > Wi-Fi and connect to your Raymarine network. Open your Boating app and wait for the connection to the plotter and automatic transfer to begin. Once completed, you can acess Routes and Markers in your Boating app from Menu. Markers will also be visible on the map.

>From mobile app to plotter
- On mobile, go to your device Settings > Wi-Fi and connect to your Raymarine network. Make sure that either a Navionics or a blank card is inserted in your plotter. Open your Navionics Boating app. A pop-up will inform you as soon as your mobile device is connected to the plotter.  A transfer process from mobile app to plotter card will start.
- On your plotter, follow the procedure to save data from the card to your plotter archive folder (Chart Menu > Routes/Waypoints > Import/Export > Retrieve Route/Waypoint from Card > Select All > OK). To see actual routes on your plotter, go to Chart Menu > Waypoints, Routes, Tracks > Select item > Show on Chart.

How to record/upload sonar logs

Enable sonar log recording on plotter from Chart Menu > Chart Settings > Sonar Logs ON. On plotter, turn on the Wi-Fi network (System Settings>Wireless Connections>Wi-Fi ON). Go to your mobile device Settings > Wi-Fi and connect to your Raymarine network. Your Navionics Boating app will automatically capture data from your Navionics card, meaning logs will be stored on your mobile until uploaded to Navionics. You can record up to a max capacity of 20 MB, which is 7 days of navigation.

>Using SonarChart Live
SonarChart™ Live allows users to create new personal 1 ft/0.5 HD bathymetry maps that display in real time while navigating. It is also an excellent way to monitor the improvements your survey will bring to the SonarChart™ because contours are instantly seen while collecting sonar logs. See video.

Owners of Dragonfly 4, 5 and 7 PRO and Wi-Fish should use the SonarChart™ Live feature within the Boating app. Both provide CHIRP DownVision sonar technology in split-screen, while the Dragonfly PRO also has a fishfinder view. Sonar logs will automatically upload from the Boating app to Navionics servers the next time you connect to the internet from your mobile via Wi-Fi network or 3G/4G. Raymarine models can also display SonarChart Live on a mobile device using Sonar Server by Digital Yacht.

Sonar log recording and uploading will contribute to enhanced SonarChart™ which you can download after about one week. Learn more about SonarChart™ and how to record sonar logs on your plotter. You may check your logs processing status and see them on the map. The new SonarChart™ resulting from your and others’ sonar logs, checked and interpolated with existing Navionics data, will be available after about one week to the whole community on plotter, mobile and PC.
How to Download updated charts 
Your Navionics plotter card and the Navionics+ on your Boating app must cover the same region. Active subscriptions are required on both the plotter card and the app. You can even activate your newly purchased Navionics plotter card with the app. Go to device Settings > Wi-Fi and connect to your Raymarine plotter network. At the very first access, you will be prompted to verify your subscription, which requires an internet connection. 

If your subscription is not valid or cannot be verified for some reason, details will be provided. If you have a newly purchased Navionics+ card, follow the instructions to activate it. Your charts will sync from your mobile to your plotter card automatically as soon as your mobile is connected to your Raymarine.
Note: If your Navionics card is 2 GB and the current charts exceed that capacity, you will need to get a new card in order to use Plotter Sync.
