Re: Summer Sailstice and Sonar Data Collection
I'm sure there is somehow. We've always used Navionics on our boats (all of them, from the 20' Aquasport to the 30' Hunter to the 40' Beneteau) and when they started allowing users to submit data to update maps we jumped on it.
We submit sonar data to help other sailors in the areas that we sail. Maybe I'm tooting my own horn but I feel like it's been pretty useful to other people. We're run across a LOT of sailors using the Navionics charts throughout the eastern seaboard, the Keys, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. I know I'm grateful to the other boaters who have been submitting sonar data. The Bahamas charts have improved drastically over the past several years.
