Tulsa, Okla. – GoFree – the provider of digital content and services and part of the Navico family of marine electronics brands including Lowrance, Simrad Yachting and B&G – announced today an upgrade to the award-winning Insight Genesis personal and social mapping utility.
Insight Genesis is a cloud-based tool that allows boaters to open a free account, upload sonar logs recorded on a multifunction display and download up-to-date, personalized contour maps. Insight Genesis now supports the use of sonar recordings in High CHIRP mode, in addition to the existing support for 200 kHz sounder logs – eliminating the need to switch sonar recording formats to generate custom maps. Users can also enhance community charting by sharing collected data publicly to the Insight Genesis Social Map, as well as search community contributed contour data from users around the globe, then download Social Map charts for personal use.
A choice of free and premium features are available for boaters to create contour maps created for use on Lowrance Elite, HDS Gen2 Touch and Gen3, Simrad NSS evo2, NSO evo2 and B&G Zeus2 multifunction displays.
Additionally, Insight Genesis now includes support for displaying metric units of measurement on the multifunction display and the ability to toggle between metric and imperial formats.
“With our enhanced Insight Genesis offering, we are breaking the cartography mold,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO, Navico. “We now offer free high-quality mapping for multifunction displays with unparalleled options for recording data and creating unmatched contour charts. Plus with our premium service, advanced users have access to an unrivaled feature set and powerful chart attributes they are sure to love.”
