Digital Yacht's SmarterChart 500

Plotters carry C-Map MAX cartography...


Digital Yacht's SmarterChart 500 series is designed to fit a wide range of fishing boats and budgets yet retain all the features anglers require. There are three models in the series, each small enough to install easily on a center console yet full-featured and powerful enough to serve as a reliable navigator. There's a stand-alone plotter ($599); a plotter with AIS ($799), the only 5-inch multi-function display on the market so equipped, says the company; and a plotter with a built-in 50/200 kHz sounder and transducer ($899). Plotters carry C-Map MAX cartography, which features Jeppesen's Guardian Alarm anti-grounding technology; Perspective View, for a bird's-eye view of charts; flashing navaids; aerial photos and diagrams, for improved situational awareness; and exclusive, detailed marina charts and port info.
