Navionics SonarChart Shading

Post by tbrinks » Mon Apr 29, 2019 3:59 pm

As an FYI, Navionics will soon be unveiling SonarChart shading for the Platinum cards. I've seen some demos of this and it is awesome. Here are a few screenshots and some more info is below.

SonarChart Shading is a new chart feature we will be adding to our 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.

That is certainly more intuitive than looking at contour lines, but I still like to see depths in numbers. Garmin has had something similar with FishEye 3D for the regular charts for a while, but not nearly as pretty as that.
