Mapping is a key part of a display: the base map of South African waters offers basic chart detail with upgrade options from multiple popular suppliers. Whether on a dam or on the sea, mapping is imperative for navigation to locate and find the right fishing locations and be able to get there safely.
There are also many charting features to look out for, which can aid the navigation and fishing features – as an example depth shading can help easily identify key fishing locations.
Using external charts will enable you to quickly pinpoint areas fish like to hide, so you spend less time looking for a fishing spot and more time fishing. If you encounter uncharted areas, use Genesis Live real-time mapping – available on most Lowrance displays – to create your own charts, down to 1/2-foot contours.
