GoFree Insight Genesis updated with more free features

Navico GoFree

Navico today announced updates to the GoFree Insight Genesis program. The Insight Genesis program is Navico’s “Custom Mapping and Content system” for the Navico range of chart-plotters that encompass the Simrad, Lowrance and B&G brands.

Navico GoFree

With GoFree Insight Genesis you can upload sonar logs recorded on multifunction chart-plotters in the Navico range. After some cloud processing GoFree Insight Genesis allows you to download your personalized contour maps to your devices.

GoFree Insight Genesis New Features

The new version of GoFree Insight Genesis now supports High chirp for sonar-logging – where as previous it only supported 200 kHz log formats.

Apart from creating your own maps – you can also share you maps with others – or download other peoples community provided charts. It does of course require the user providing the Contour maps to make their maps public.

The free and some premium freatures are available for  Lowrance Elite, HDS Gen2 Touch and Gen3, Simrad NSS evo2, NSO evo2 and B&G Zeus2 multifunction displays.

Check the table below for the different options available for free or for a cost. Unfortunately Navico GoFree Insight Genesis requires a Premium Account ($99/year) to keep you uploaded data private. I call that extortion…..
