Automatic Routing

With a few simple touches, your Raymarine chartplotter can plot the course to your destination. Here are a few points to keep in mind:

  • Automatic routing is available when using either Navionics or C-MAP charts.
  • For Navionics, your chart card must be activated online with Navionics first.
  • You also need to setup the Boat Details menu to get information on your boat's beam (width), draft (depth), and height. This is all needed for safe passage planning.
  • The icons used to mark waypoints will call attention to potential hazards on the automatic route.
  • Don’t blindly trust your electronics. Be sure to be at attention and carefully observing your surroundings for any potential hazards or environmental changes.
