now have the ability to chart unmapped waters and create custom maps
EUFAULA, Ala. (May
27, 2014) – Just
in time for summer fishing opportunities, anglers now have the ability to chart
private, public and hard-to-reach waters far off the radar of government
surveys and commercially-available paper maps and digital GPS charts. That
means you can finally map your own favorite lakes, reservoirs, rivers, ponds,
as well as offshore locations. Now available at retailers worldwide, the
revolutionary angler-built mapping technology comprises PC mapping software on
DVD and a Zero Lines Map Card designed for use in Humminbird units only.
Map coverage where you make it.
AutoChart PRO shown
Available for a one-time
purchase price, no subscription or pay-by-the-lake fees, Humminbird AutoChart and AutoChart PRO put the power in anglers’
hands, not the company behind the product (or fellow anglers).
There’s no uploading to a
server or Cloud. AutoChart does it instantly - and your data is kept private,
so your competition is none the wiser.

the AutoChart Zero Lines Map Card v.1.0 card into your Humminbird unit card
slot and record your lake data by activating the Track Log or Sonar Recording

survey, simply save and export the data to your card.
Step 2, CONVERT:
Insert the AutoChart SD card into you PC, import data and click the Create Map
toolbar button. To display your map in high-definition depth contours, then

ZERO LINES MAP CARD
The Zero Line is the place
where the water meets the shore. The AutoChart Zero Lines Map Card contains
Zero Lines for millions of waters across the globe, which serve as the basis
for each custom map creation. Choose from North America, South America, Europe,
Australia, Asia or Africa SD cards for your region of the world. With these
all-important Zero Lines as your foundation, you can begin creating your own
accurate and detailed maps of any fishing spot.
The Zero Lines Map Card is also formatted to record your sonar logs. After
recording, load the card into your computer to let the AutoChart PC Software
convert the recordings into a map that can be displayed on your compatible
DVD PC SOFTWARE
The AutoChart DVD software
for your PC is the powerful engine used to turn survey data into a sophisticated
lake map. The map created by the AutoChart software can be viewed on the
computer AND be exported back to the Zero Lines Map Card to be viewed on you
compatible Humminbird unit. Now you can have your own map for that secret
fish-holding location and keep it a secret.
When viewing your
AutoChart maps on your PC you will be able to see the underwater world in
revolutionary 3D detail to give you a better understanding of what the
structure looks like on your favorite lakes.
Add another layer of
detail to your AutoChart cartography. New AutoChart PRO offers all the leading
features of AutoChart - but with two key enhancements designed to give
tournament anglers a competitive edge. Bottom
Hardness Indication identifies hard and soft bottom areas in
rich, easy-to-read colors, revealing transitions in substrate density – often
those hard-to-find, key fish-holding locations. For those running Side Imaging
capable Humminbird units, Side
Imaging Mosaic allows you to overlay your Side Imaging returns
onto your AutoChart map for a 3D visualization of that habitat. With AutoChart
PRO, you'll have all the tools necessary to dissect waters – and find fish –
like never before.
Also, for anglers
surveying “spot on the spot” locations that may already be mapped, AutoChart
products allow you to place custom map data with customizable transparency over
existing Humminbird LakeMaster charts for an unprecedented level of detail.
Then, once finished
creating your own custom map you’ll get use of LakeMaster’s three key patented
features of Shallow Water Highlight, Depth Highlight and Water Level Offset on
your map. Combine your map with Minn Kota® iPilot® Link™ and you can set
your trolling motor to follow your custom contours! You can also offset these
contour lines by any value you choose and automatically follow with your boat.
