Amazing the functionality of Active Captain, Garmin’s new App for boating.

ActiveCaptain allows you to connect Garmin Marine chartplotters to the mobile network and access a whole new world of content: browse, purchase, and synchronize cartography, quickly update on-board devices to the latest available software version, control them remotely via smartphone or tablet, plan naviagation in advance, and much more.

The features are many, let’s find out the main ones:

OneChart
It allows you to browse nautical charts directly from your mobile device and transfer them to all registered Garmin Marine devices; you can also purchase new areas or update already purchased ones and automatically synchronize them with the chartplotter on board the boat.

Smart Notifications
You can stay connected at all times with Smart Notifications, calls and text messages directly on the Garmin Marine chartplotter display, leaving your mobile device safe and dry.

Simplified synchronization
You can automatically synchronize routes and waypoints stored on the chartplotter to review all data anywhere on your mobile device.

ActiveCaptain Community
This new feature allows you to connect with the ActiveCaptain community to learn up-to-date marina information and new points of interest, thanks to updated feedback from thousands of other users.

Simplified synchronization
You can automatically synchronize routes and waypoints stored on the chartplotter to review all data anywhere on your mobile device.

Software Upgrade
It allows you to receive notifications and software updates for your Garmin Marine instrumentation directly on your mobile device; you no longer have to use your computer or an SD™ card to update devices installed on board, you can choose when to download the update and when to install it.

Check your chartplotter
The Helm function allows you to view and control the chartplotter from any location on board the boat using your smartphone or tablet.
